A Challenge at the end of the year, 年末チャレンジ
I headed to Dodoma after taking a day off in Arusha. My plan was to get to Dodoma by end of this year and to spend new year there.

In this route, I will miss Dar es Salam and Zanzibar where most tourists go. I chose this way because I thought this route was more remote.
As a result, the road was quite rough and tough enough. However, it was really exciting to cycle on the dart road and passing by many small villages.


By the village called Babati, it was paved road about 180km. No problems.


Until the junction with the road going to Serengeti and Ngorongoro and Tarangire, the traffic of safari land cruiser was quite few.


After those intersection, the road became much quieter. Major traffic was bicycles.


This man on the photo followed me quite long distance. He didn't speak any English, but I knew he was happy person.


Lunch break, 昼休憩

I camped one night in the camp ground at the gate of Tarangire N.P. They gave me good price for camping; 6000TS, about $4. It was nice and relaxing camp ground.

タランギーレ国立公園の入り口にあったキャンプ場で1泊。1泊 6000シリング 約400円にしてくれて、なかなか居心地の良いキャンプ場だった。

I met a Iranian Tanzanian family in this camp. They were hunting and gave me some envelope barbecue. It was great.


In Africa, people can hunt almost any animals as long as they can pay for the license, even lions.
