The Bush mans smoking Ganja before hunting
My road adventure to Rwanda and Uganda was not only intended for game viewing but experiencing locals and traditions....was long drives every day but since it was a remarkable moment...i did not get tired at all. My 4 Canadian Buddie was their first time in Africa and they were in hollywood imaginations.I had so many strange questions but all was their inquisitive and what they see on Tv and animated movie..
Was much high lights and was a new day every morning...a real new day.
Traveling during the rain season in east and central africa is a remarkable journey. I remember thousands of being stuck and my mate was to collect stones, woods and anything that would help us to get out of the ditch. When you get stuck means you are schedule is no longer on consideration.
Arriving at the camp in dark time with a person whom its first time in Africa means you have to run all around in the darkness to assure that there is no any predator around.
Yes..I did run in the darkness and after a while gazing the camp area,then was two blinking eyes....mmh!
What?...........The King of the jungle....master of the beasts.
Not one a realized was more than 5 .....three mother with two cabs.
No one cares we gonna make our tent and cook and have our drink as guests into this land....the owner will tolerate us if we have no any crash with them.
That was a night with visitor around our camp till morning. Behind the kitchen is where the limping female lion was lied. I could here at night a fight between hyaena and lioness.
.. that was left over around the kitchen that meet two opponents together.
Its morning and no one has been eaten...a remarkable night, felt happy much. Another day in Africa i told my mates. There is never quiet night in African bush. The great migration in Serengeti Tanzania has something every one should never miss in life time. The grunting noisy the whole night around the camp from millions of these ungulates makes the night of history. Wildebeests knows by staying near by camps at night or lodge will be safer for them...the nature!
As we turned to civilization...here was my experiences.Eating the squirrel meat for the first time in my life.But was couple of attempts to get big game which would have satisfy a Hadzabe family of 34 members.We tried Kudu but was so faster than the village warriors could dare to chase.
The the Baboon came on our way but he was big male to charge the group two times. Finally was this small beautiful animal. My stay with Hadzabe the list named on endangered tribe in Tanzania was remarkable.
The journey continue through Kenyan boarder where by Visa process took us few minutes. I would say few things here that has happened in Kenyan boarder that do not change money with local street guys. In Nairobi make sure your car door is locked even when your are driving. I was on jam and the guy was selling news paper just approached my car door selling news paper. Mike was sitting behind my driving seat and his hand on window then the guy turned his hands that he could not move it and steal Seiko watch.I could not even help as other car was quite close and we could crash....then i never forget.We visited the Kibera area where it used to be refugees camp...and people lives in slums. I made the contacts and we stayed two days to help. Next day was our long drive to Rwanda. We spent a week in Rwanda and later Burundi. After the trip my colleague was tired and decide to take flight back home but our 2 months adventure was finished. We have now put together areas we have visited and keep our support for kids and women.
