Mwadui Critters

As this post is aired, we'll be on our way by road to Mwanza. At 8.55am we board a flight to Dar Es Salaam. Once we land there at 10.45, Grant collects our luggage from the carousel our driver, Mohamed takes us across the city to our hotel. On Sunday morning we fly to Johannesburg and from there on to Bloemfontein. Then a mere 160km road trip and we're "home".

Meanwhile I'm posting about the critters we've seen this week in and around Mwadui.

Driving through the beautiful park-like Client camp, we stopped to watch a band of mongoose playing around the base of the tree above

Soon we were rewarded with a mongoose peering out of the clump of grass 
And venturing out further to look at us!
 I had fun snapping away as they popped out all over the lawn

Back in the yard at home, Princess, Nando and pups enjoy the life of Riley.
