lionsAfter several great days in Namibia including the last night at a beautiful guest house in Windhoek owned by Matiti Tours (a great place to stay) I was ready to start the second leg of my trip. Now on to the place I love and know best, Tanzania. This time I was visiting a part of Tanzania that I had never been before – the Southern parks of Selous and Ruaha.

We stayed at two great camps – Lake Manze and Impala Camp. Everything was green because of all the rains. What was most amazing was the bird life and the number of crocodiles. In the space of 30 minutes on a boat ride we saw over 100 crocodiles!

A fun fact for you – What is the largest National Park in Tanzania? If you guessed Serengeti – guess again. It is actually the Selous. It is 4 times the size of the Serengeti and covers more than 5% of the total area of Tanzania and is larger than the entire country of Switzerland!
