Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania is the largest unfilled inactive volcanic crater, or caldera, in the world. However, it’s not entirely empty as a wildlife spectacle unfolds in this dramatic setting. At the base of 610m cliff faces elephants trumpet, lions roar, and antelope…eat grass.

Bwindi Lodge Review

It’s not something that happens often to us, but when we stepped out our Land Cruiser and arrived at Volcanoes Safaris Bwindi Lodge in Uganda we felt at ease. The individual rooms and lodge blended in with its natural surrounding. Bandas feature windows that opened wide to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Here there was no end to the lodge as the park spilled right onto the property that is frequented by mountain gorillas.

Ushongo Beach

We’ve been finding ourselves lost on the Tanzanian coast recently, and don’t ever want to leave. It’s this feeling of being cast away on shores of Africa in countries like Tanzania, Mozambique, or Kenya that is truly magical. The feeling is nothing like the beaches of Greece, Jamaica, Thailand, or even Zanzibar. When you find the right beach in Africa you feel as if you’re truly exploring. The Tanzanian coast is plentiful with dhows, white sand, aquamarine water, and thousands of palm trees. It all means you’re never too far from fresh fish, a tranquil spot to relax, refreshing water, and a … Read More

Kilindi Zanzibar Review

Kilindi Zanzibar Beach Resort We’d been on Zanzibar for nearly two weeks by the time we checked into Kilindi Zanzibar and had high hopes after the few photos we had seen of the resort. Kilindi is a collection of well-spaced white domed villas that look as if they were built for a sultan. Although no Sultan was involved in the making they do feel fit for a King and Queen. We found Kilindi Zanzibar to be the best escape for anyone looking for romance or a honeymoon on Zanzibar. The Pavilions The pavilions at Kilindi are one of a kind, designed … Read More

Each room at Tongabezi has its own appointed valet. This personal valet watches over you and your room and makes sure you have … Read More

Life on the Chobe River

It was a sad day when we had to leave Namibia and cross the border into Botswana. We had come to admire the desert country during our month there. We felt especially fond for the Caprivi strip. However, we crossed over the Ngoma border post and geared up to explore more of Africa. The brand new Chobe Water Villas were awaiting us.  Cruising into Chobe Water Villas We didn’t miss Namibia too long, though, because two hours later we were crossing the Chobe River and getting our passports stamped back into Namibia.
