Better late than never!


It has poured with rain in Tanzania since you last heard from us. What a relief! The short rains that usually start in October and continue through November, and typically finish in December, were delayed this year.

If there’s ever a time to visit us in Ndutu, it is now!

It has poured with rain in Tanzania since you last heard from us. What a relief! The short rains that usually start in October and continue through November, and typically finish in December, were delayed this year. The delay caused a drought, and the lack of water and vegetation threatened livestock and wildlife across East Africa. With many people speculating and worrying that these short rains would never come, it’s a blessing that the rains have arrived! Although we’ve still not had as much as we’d have liked, needed, and that has naturally occurred in the past, it is much ‘better than nothing’, and there is no gauge to when it will end. So, for now let’s hope it continues!
