Relaxed Zanzibar

We’ve been back from Zanzibar for just under two weeks now and we’re trying to keep that relaxed feeling as long as possible. Hakuna Matata! We started our 10-day holiday in Zanzibar at Fumba Beach lodge, beautifully situated by the sea. It was super relaxed. The lodge is small-scale with very committed and friendly staff. […]

Oasis of peace

Tanzania & Zanzibar, January 2023. On January 9, 2023 we flew from Dusseldorf to Dar es Salaam with Qatar Air. The driver was waiting for us, the adventure could begin. Over a distance of 1 km we already took more than 1 hour !! What a busy chaotic city, our hotel Mediterraneo was an oasis […]

Top holiday

We had no experience of traveling on African territory. So in terms of food, highways, airports, etc. it took some getting used to if you compare it with Europe. On day 1 we were able to recover and Pauline went on a horseback ride. On the safaris you make long days, but our guide (Aloys) […]

Fantastic safari week

We enjoyed a fantastic safari week in Tanzania, starting at Lake Tarangire and Sangaiwe lodge, then to Ndutu Safari Lodge in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and finally ending up in the northern part of the Serengeti! How lucky we were with our guide Emmanuel, who took all the time to show us the special things; The Big […]

Incredibly beautiful safari from Zanzibar

An incredibly beautiful safari! On the agreed day we were picked up from Zanzibar with a small plane to Selous Game Reserve / Nyerere National Park. Flying itself was already an experience, where you see the monkeys running off the runway as the plane approaches. After landing we were picked up by a jeep and […]

Fantastic Ruaha

It was a fantastic trip, especially the safari was very special The contact with our personal guide and driver in Ruaha was all very pleasant. The Tandala Tented Camp was a fantastically beautiful place with a waterhole for animals that attracted many elephants and impalas. We learned a lot about nature, the plants, trees and […]

Kilimanjaro – the most beautiful experience in our life!

We really had a blast! We couldn’t have imagined it better, perfect combination between mountaineering, adventurous safaris and beautiful beaches on Zanzibar! The Kilimanjaro was an experience in itself, for both of us the most beautiful in our lives. A new environment every day, a fantastic group of people around us and the excitement of […]

The food was truly heavenly

It’s hard getting used to the cold in The Netherlands again…. We really had a great time! The contact was already good before we went on a trip; we could contact Explore Tanzania for any question. This was possible via e-mail as well as by telephone, prior to the trip but also during the trip. […]

Awesome autumn break

During our autumn holiday we enjoyed the beautiful nature and the wonderful climate in Tanzania for almost two weeks at three different locations (Green Camp Kogatende in the Serengeti, Jabali Ridge in Ruaha and Hodi Hodi hotel in Zanzibar).   Traveling went very smoothly in this corona time (with a mouth cap on the plane […]
