The Pied Kingfisher

Earlier this week while driving home from breakfast in the bush we spotted four Pied Kingfishers sitting on the sandbar in the river. I did not think there were any fish for them to catch in this small section of the river that had little water. To our delight they proved us wrong and caught quite a few! It was too cute not to share!

I hope you enjoy my YouTube video of the Pied Kingfisher diving for fish!

Tree Tops

I recently had the chance to visit a lodge that I had been waiting to see for a very long time. It was nice to check off another item on my bucket list and enjoy the serenity of this beautiful lodge. The uniqueness of these properties has amazed me since I first laid eyes on the pictures in travel magazines many years ago when I was in Travel College.

The entire grounds of Tarangire Tree Tops are a nature lover’s paradise. The food is top notch and a treat upon returning from a long day of game driving. Sit back and relax fireside listening to the great outdoors while enjoying the sky of shining light. My favourite part of this hideaway are the rooms which are built into large Baobab trees - adult size tree houses in the most peaceful setting.


Sleeping in a tree is an experience that everyone should try once in their life, well that’s just my opinion! I hope you enjoy my virtual tour of Tarangire Tree Tops.
