Not many people
slept comfortably last night, as the weather was very hot and humid.
After an early breakfast at 7am, we were back on the road by 8, glad to
be getting a bit of a breeze blowing through the Land Cruisers. We were
off to Morogoro and Mikumi Wildlife Park for a game drive. We
encountered some congestion on route when we came across a group of
Masai moving their cattle down the road. On entering the park we
encountered giraffe, buffalo, zebra numerous new birds, and a herd of
elephants, again, very protective of the youngster in their midst. Ahead
of us, one of the other Land Cruisers had come to a halt, and all were
on their feet peering into the distance. It transpired that "Faz"
had spotted a lion in the bush. How he spotted this I don't
know. It was only when we followed, going "off-road" we spotted her,
lying in the shade of a bush. She was clearly agitated by our
presence, so we didn't linger too long. As we moved back to the
track, she emerged, looking towards us. Full marks to "Faz" for
