The national parks of Tanzania are large in both size and number. Many of the main roads pass through them. A bus journey can prove rather interesting. It's not a paid up safari with rambling, but it is free.

I was impressed by this story on the bbc about the Selous Game Sanctuary.

Tree-climbing rangers help save Tanzania's endangered rhinos

Unfortunately, while passing though a national park in the bus, I've never seen a rhino. In fact I've never seen a rhino on an actual safari in Tanzania. I did see a rhino on a safari in a taxi in Zambia. The national park is connected to Victoria Falls, and has hippos in the Zambezi.

I took that photograph from this bridge.

Zambia is on the right hand side, and Zimbabwe is on the left. With a temporary pass from the customs chaps you can go onto the bridge without going into Zimbabwe. The bridge isn't in either country.

"The bridge isn't in either country" who repairs it?
