The best of western Tanzania No ratings yet.

For over half a year I have abstained from writing this article, because of a strong feeling that I shouldn’t.

Ever dreamt of climbing Kilimanjaro? Kilimanjaro is not only the tallest mountain in Tanzania, and in the whole of Africa, it’s the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. At 19,341 feet (5,895 meters) this lone giant is a must for mountaineers looking to bag the Seven Summits. It’s also climbable by the average arm-chair adventurer. […]

Going on safari as a single female 5/5 (1)

Going on an African safari is something that’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for most of us, mainly due to the high costs and the amount of holiday time required. It’s usually more cost-effective to travel with a companion, too, as many lodges impose a supplement on single travelers.  So, what happens when the chance to visit […]

Cape Town drought and safari tourism No ratings yet.

Why visit Cape Town, South Africa? Located on the southwestern tip of South Africa, Cape Town is its second-largest city and one of its top tourist destinations.

This move has been in the making for several years and is the result of efforts from many nations who donated time, money and resources to ensure their return happened smoothly and safely. But, rhinos weren’t always absent from Akagera. In fact, […]

Photographing wild dogs of South Luangwa, Zambia No ratings yet.

South Luangwa, Zambia is home to many wonderful animals. Lions, leopards, giraffe, zebra and hyena are just a few of the animals you’re likely to see on safari. But, a big draw for me, and for many guests of South Luangwa, is the African wild dog, which I’ll refer to as just ‘wild dog’ for the […]
