Long grass spreads over Ruaha, elephant graze leisurely camouflaged by the dense vegetation.
"Capturing our attention are 2 young impala males play fighting, stopping the vehicle we watch and listen as their horns clash together."
Rising early we head out for a full day of game viewing, green season brings a refreshing change of afternoon storms and lush vegetation. Tetse fly’s greet us as we enter the park, biting ferociously through our clothes. Capturing our attention are 2 young impala males play fighting, stopping the vehicle we watch and listen as their horns clash together. Elephants gather in herds, camouflaged by the dense undergrowth and baobab trees. Playful trunks comb the ground in search of nutrient grass and succulent tree pods, baboons screech causing havoc in the branches above. On our way back to Tandala, we creep our way up to two blacked backed jackals on the road, surrounding a herd of unsuspecting impala’s.
Night time around the campfire brings the hum of voices and stories of the day, in the distance we can hear the faint calls of hyena. Tomorrow we start on the next part of our journey, to the marine island of Mafia.
