Climbing Africa’s Highest Peak – Mount Kilimanjaro

For those adventure seekers who aren’t super hardcore, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro may just be the perfect trip for you. At 19,340 feet (5895 meters), it’s the highest peak in all of Africa and the tallest walkable peak in the world – meaning you don’t have to use climbing equipment to reach the summit. While this doesn’t mean it’s easy, quite [...]

Lake Manyara

Cradled in the glory of its surroundings below the sheer majesty of the Rift valley wall, Lake Manyara lies serene, spreading in a heat haze backed by a thin green band of forest and the sheer 600 metre red and brown cliffs of the escarpment. A wedge of surprisingly varied vegetation sustains a wealth of wildlife, nourished by chattering strums [...]

Selous Game Reserve

The vast majority of Tanzania’s elephant herd live in one remote stretch of safari wilderness – the Selous Game Reserve. Stigler’s Gorge is one of the park’s most striking features. This gaping chasm channels the frothing confluence of the Great Ruaha and Rufiji Rivers. After this bottle neck, the Rufiji swells through the park down to the Indian Ocean forming [...]

Mikumi National Park

Forming the northern [...]

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area which lies between the Serengeti and the Lake Manyara National Parks boasts the largest unbroken, inactive, and unflooded caldera in the world. Perhaps having once been about the same size as Mount Kilimanjaro, when the volcanic activity subsided, it collapsed inward resulting in a crater 18 kilometers (11 miles) across. Surrounded by very steep walls 610 [...]

Serengetti Game Reserve

A million wildebeest, each driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling their instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied 3 week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40 kilometer long columns plunge through crocodile infested waters on the annual exodus north, replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more [...]
