A trip to Tanzania - Amora mia Amara

Lions, crocodiles, zebras and wild game drives! Welcome to Tanzania!

What could be more exciting than an adventure in Africa! Where lions roam, elephants drink at water holes and zebras run wild.

Sleeping with hippos, sunbathing with Umpalas and breakfasting with squirrels, Sam and I headed into the Selous, Tanzania's largest game reserve. It is one of the most amazing places I have ever been too.

Hidden in the middle of the Selous is The Amara, a small luxury Safari Camp. 

We arrived by "tiny" plane, landing on a dusty dirt track!

And rocked up to camp.

.... nestled on a quiet river bank, with hippos wandering about outside...

... was our tent...

... and it wasn't long before we soon felt very a home.
Exhausted from our trip, it made sense to unpack, throw on a bikini and wake up with a relaxing dip in the pool, along with these two birds.

As the heat of the day wore off, we headed out on our first game drive!
Hopping into this beast and befriending Enok (who kindly spent a whole four days taking Sam and I off out exploring and putting up with us behaving like a set of over excited kids) we set off out to find big game...
