A Weekend in Tanzania

“Do your little bit of good where you are. It’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” –Desmond Tutu

We spent this weekend at Ruaha Hilltop Lodge and went on a safari at Ruaha National Park. We stayed in a cottage and had meals at the lodge. We went out for the game drive at 8:00am Saturday and we returned before dark. We saw many impalas, giraffes, elephants, zebras, different types of birds, hippos, crocodiles, monkeys, and two lions. We were a little closer than I liked to the lions! Our guide was very informative about the different animals. At the lodge we were able to see out above the national park – the views were beautiful! We had a fun, relaxing weekend, but it will be nice to get back into our routine here in Pommern!
