Nudibranchs of Mafia Island - report from Sea Point Diving 

" I am sure some of you have noticed down at the centre we are Nudibranch maniacs. We have decided to create an album dedicated to the different species found here. We invite you all to help us identify them as well as posting your own discoveries of nudi's here. We hope to compile a comprehensive internet 'nudi guide' of Mafian waters. "

Baobabs and Elephants

Ruaha! Intoxicating, pristine, untouched!  The grandeur of the Baobab and the wandering herds of elephants harmonzse perfectly with the magnificent landscapes - enormous trees and beasts in an equally expansive setting.  Wherever Baobabs grow there were probably elephants, these two giants are linked together in the evolution of East Africa - the elephants shaping the life of the trees, and in some cases, the trees shaping the lives of the elephants.
