I did it! Eversince I saw Ewan Mcgregor visiting Gorillas in Rwanda in Long Way Down, Volcanoes National Park has been on my bucket list. This year i finally fullfilled my dreams, wasnt cheap i admit, but was totally worth it!!
Tracking guide will tell you more about how to behave when you’re in the presence of gorillas but here are some things to keep in mind:
Dont point index finger into gorillas, they have bad experience with poachers and they might think you want to shoot them
Dont make eye contact with gorillas – can be seen to be aggressive
If gorilla approaches you just act submissive and crouch down, but never run away!
Besides its not allowed to take food, drink with you – you will leave your backpack and unnecessary equipment, clothes in a safe place about hundred meters before you approach gorilla area.
First of all thank you to all there in WordPress universe that have chosen to follow my blog and trip to East Africa!! ♥♥♥
Due to typhoid fever i had to return home sooner than planned initially. There are many photos to sort out but right now i have to get better first. Hope you will still enjoy the upcoming pics! 🙂
Still, had an unforgettable time in Africa and also getting sick is part of African experience….
I just wanted to share Tanzanian bank notes. I really find some of them among more interesting and beautiful if comparing them to Euros or other currencies. Take a look, nice money isn’t it?
Average Tanzanian Salary is between 80 000 TSH an 150 000 TSH, which is in Eur 40 and 80 Eur. Now do the math….
Sorry fellow bloggers for not following your posts as much as I would like to! Here is Internet connection really slow so I am not posting as much as i planned from home. I have now already all settled in Arusha, in a nice quiet neighborhood under the slopes of volcano mountain Meru. As I have to work daily i haven’t manage to utilize my camera yet, just few snapshots with iphone, but since i am gonna stay here for two months i have time to catch up with photography.
I fell in love with this ornamental garden banana tree!
