Safari in Tanzania, first sightings!

Went to Mikumi National Park in Tanzania, which is only about a 4-hour drive from Dar Es Salaam (the capital). It is much less crowded than the popular Serengeti at the north. (Our guide says you don’t spot for animals there, you just need to watch out for the cars/people, and there will be animals – takes the fun out of a safari).

Anyway, after just entering through the main entrance of the park, we spotted animals! Was so excited. So, out comes the binoculars and this was what I saw:


Giraffes!!! Yes, right in the centre are 2 giraffes. Can you see it? This shot above was taken with my longest zoon lens. Let me magnify it for you:

2 giraffes

TA DAA!! Giraffes!! Yeah, now we’re in a safari!!





Then we drove around in the safari… and 1 hour later:

Giraffes were everywhere!! And we got pretty close to some of them
