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 […]

Where our primal mother Lucie lived …

Dear Marjolein and Paul, I think it was  pretty obvious iced that I attached great importance to this journey, which was to become and has become a reflection of the warm bond I have with my sons. The seed of our interest in the African wilderness and its wildlife was planted when we were invited […]

Not a single corona problem

Thanks to your perfectly arranged, but not cheap (together $ 230), Covid test, we didn’t have any corona problem during our vacation. All Tanzanians were very happy with our appearance. Guide George had not seen the Serengeti since February and was happy with this ending to the long idleness. He spoiled us with game drives […]

From the landing at Kilimanjaro Arport where the plane was “blessed” with water by the fire brigade (it was the first KLM flight since the covid outbreak) and we were welcomed by dancing Maasai on disembarkation to passport control leaving the country – […]

Driver’s skills

Knobel stuurmanskunst

Hello Marjolein! We have been able to make a wonderful journey. We finally let Selous pass – the reports about the accumulated wetness and blubber were too dramatic to want to go there self-driving. We “did” Mikumi and Ruaha the first half of the trip. We saw an incredible amount and variety of game, plus […]

He found the structure of the visits to the parks with Serengeti at the end very well chosen. Zanzibar was very nice too. Staying overnight at Stone Town Café was perfect for […]
