A wonderful holiday!

After a night at the Outpost lodge our seven day safari started from Arusha. On the way there it was very nice to see the environment change and to see the first zebras already among the groups of cows of the Maasai. The safari started in the Tarangire National Park. It was great to spot […]

The cuisine was ‘star’-worthy

Travel to Tanzania and Mafia Island. After two years of waiting we went to Tanzania, on July 9th. We avoided the crowds at Schiphol by booking with Luxury Airport Services, which meant that we were through security and customs within 15 minutes, a relaxed start to our trip. After a good flight we arrived at […]

Can I do it one more time?

On Thursday 7 July we will leave for Tanzania with our three children and their loved ones. An unprecedented journey for us. Despite all the reports about crowds at Schiphol, we go through all checks without much delay. We fly to Zanzibar where two drivers are waiting to take us to our first place to […]

The African Dream

Our trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar left an indelible impression on us. A previous safari has taught us that it is very difficult to put into words how breathtaking such an experience is. This was confirmed once again in Tanzania. Like so many travelers, our trip started chaotic because the situation at Schiphol is simply […]


I remember well that my father (70 years old) used to always watch National Geographic. As a little boy I found the nature movies very boring, but as I got older I started to appreciate it more and soon “safari” ended up at the top of my bucket list. Although my father was always fascinated […]

A scene from Out of Africa

Tanzania is our first introduction to sub-Saharan Africa. Our trip was postponed for 2 years due to the Coronapandemic, but in 2022 we went. Together with our son, Bram, and his girlfriend, Iris, we decided to  embark on the adventure from 10 to 26 June. After a wonderful day of acclimation, we were introduced to […]

Adventurous self drive

We love active holidays and like a bit of adventure. When we understood that you could also book a self-drive safari through Explore Tanzania – without a guide and without someone to arrange the food for you – we quickly agreed that we had to do that. Although the latter was still a thing. I […]

Barely to put into words

So impressive, hard to put into words Our Tanzania trip starts in the Schiphol chaos: even though we arrived at Schiphol well in time, we missed our flight to Arusha due to the huge queues for the security check. We knew that about 2 hours later a flight would leave for Nairobi, Kenya. They were […]
