We left here at 6.00am and
got at the mikumi national park gate around 9.00.After
the registration at the gate we began our first day
trip around the park.Students as usual enjoyed the tour
and seemed happy to see the park and the animals.We
were lucky this time to see a lion as you can see on my
We had a female guide who provided a good knowledge to the students,they were really amazing,as john a form three student told me this:
I was wrong to think that an elephant is a polite animal and good friend to man,but today I have head that an elephant is the greatest enermy of man.
There were lots of comments the students gave about the trip.This time most of the students were interested on knowing more about MY WORLD as they asked me many questios about it.Imaculata a form 3 student said this:
I have alwas been asking myself as if lion can kill a giraffe,I was very much interested to hear the story of giraffe with a lion,the guide said it is not ease for a lion to kill a giraffe because a giraffe is very strong and powerful and its heart is high up on the neck.There should be many lions to kill one giraffe.
Thanks for your support to the students.I appreciate very much because It is me who really sees what happens to students after such trips. They seem to change mentally and make friendship. Some would like to go back again and some try to imagine that one day they work in one of the park and so on.We came back to dar on the 21st evening and i hope it was succesful.
