Tanzania Part 9
Day 9: Tarangire National Park Part 2
We had a late start to the day breakfast and coffee overrode the need to get back to being Tsetse fly bait. Rounding the first bend into the park we were accosted by a wall of smell that I can still feel lingering in the horrors section of my brain. The smell over rode several senses; it smelt like an elephant had died. That’s because an elephant had died. A few hundred feet later we had found the departed creature. The vultures immediately scattered as we made our way to it.
Uncommon test of true love #128 your travel companion tolerates the smell of a dead elephant long enough for the scattered vultures to return so you can take a few shots of heavy metal album covers.
This pic was worth every putrid minute.
