Day 42 – 17.5.2011 From Dar to the Baobab Valley Camp
The problem, as on all overland routes in Tanzania, there is in every village, not just 50 zones, but also many bumps, forcing the driver to break. But still, many truck wrecks are lying on the roadside, we count seven on the distance of 300 kilometers.There are also countless police checks Chalinze between Morogoro in every village is a cop with radar gun, they are known, that they want to pull the driver over the table. Thus, one should drive in this section in the villages only 40 .
The nature at the Morogoro Mountains is overwhelming, but unfortunately it is cloudy. On the road today baskets of all kinds are available.In Mikumi National Park, the overland road passes through the park, we finally see some elephants and giraffes, shortly we are tempted to drive in the park, but the weather is too bad, that would make no beautiful photos.
And bad weather photos of elephants and giraffes I have more than enough. But we stay some time on the road and watch the animals.Tired, we arrive at Baobab Valley, Mike is preparing us a very tasty lamb steak with rice, vegetables and salad from their garden.
We eat together with Rita, a German woman who is traveling alone in Africa on a motorcycle.Of course, we talk too long and it is 11 o’clock when we finally go to bed.
