  • Tanji Beach and Bird Bath With no early morning bird trip booked today, we have a lie-in this morning and don't rise until 07:15. Luxury. It is also the first time in the four nights we've stayed here that we've had breakfast in the lodge. Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Apr 9, 2019
  • MarrakissaI slept surprisingly well last night, despite the upset tummy yesterday afternoon and several rather unpleasant dreams overnight.

  • AbukoI spent most of the night tossing and turning, trying to find a position that didn't hurt my arm. That'll teach me for spending so long at the waterhole photographing the birds. Not. I even struggle to bring my hand Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Apr 7, 2019
  • BrufutYet again Lariam (malaria prophylaxis) upsets my sleep with a series of bad dreams: while faced with a plethora of colourful birds, my camera refuses to operate despite repeatedly and frustratingly pressing the shutter. I wake up agitated and distressed, Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Apr 6, 2019

  • Tarangire Part IIt is still dark when we leave the lodge this morning, just as it has been every single morning since we arrived here. Today is our last day in Tanzania, so it won't be long before we are able to Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | May 18, 2017
  • Ndutu Day I Part II (Honey Badger and Cheetah) After breakfast we go and check on the lion cubs we saw earlier, to find they are all asleep; so we leave them to it and go to “see what nature will offer us”. This is one of Mal Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | May 12, 2017
