Safari In Tanzania

Tanzania is one country with the power of changing you. It starts with your outlook on vacations and makes you question everything you have ever experienced, then it moves on to prove that not everything you see on Animal Planet ever did justice to what you are seeing in person, and no, we are not talking about two elephants and a rhinoceros doing it in the middle of the road.

Going on a Tanzania Safari makes you a true adventurer. So if you have a taste for such things, make sure that you book a safari for yourself. Safari is a journey that the 13th century traders came up with. They hunted the plains of Africa and boasted their prize on their walls. Today, most of travelers and tourists explore wildlife opportunities to take a selfie and find their inner-selves in the wilderness —do not expect to slay any beasts and take home any trophies— the experience of the journey is rewarding enough and makes the safari tour worth it.

Witness the Majesty of Nature

Life is way too short to miss out on occasions like seeing hundred of zebras migrating through the rich green grass lands or the life version of the flocks of flamingoes that cover a lake and make their own plane from afar. And if that is not scenic enough for you, Tanzania Safaris even let you see mighty lions feasting on their hard earned prey.The big five that make up a truly memorable Safari in Tanzania are the rhinoceroses, elephants, leopards, lions, and buffalos. The chance to get close to wild animals in their natural habitat is an unparalleled experience and is like a drug to thrill-seekers. That being said, don’t get too close to the animals (especially the elephants and rhinos) and stick with your guide.

The Culture

Safaris are not just good for seeing wild life. In fact, they help you introduce yourself to a whole new culture as well. You get to meet the people who have perhaps the longest history on earth and still practice the most ancient of traditions. This is something truly priceless and the memory of your interaction will stay with you forever. Who knows, you might even come across learning something valuable through the experience.

It Is Not Like You Will Be On Your Feet All Day

When most people hear about a safari, their excitement tones down after their brain reminds them that they will have to arrange for lodging and what not for their own comfort. Tracking the great five is fun but you do not want to be doing that all day, and for that, you need a place to crash at night. Only the greatest safari expeditions let you enjoy the tours and arrange for your lodging and everything that you will need as a guest in their beautiful country.

So stop just day dreaming about your safari and make that dream come true with our Tanzania Expeditions where you can enjoy tracking wild life and have a truly one-of-a-kind experience that you can boast about forever.

Safari in African

First it’s because I bumped into a longtime friend of mine who we share a great history of our childhood moments. She later moved to the States with her parents and recently she came to tour her motherland and she was trying to explain her experience to me. Therefore, I am going to share her experience here because for a second it made me appreciate the fact that I am an African. Well, for lack of better words, it gave me a sense of belonging.

I believe that almost everyone from overseas who has done a tour to East Africa will tell you how great it was and all great experiences that come with East Africa. This is because Africa is renowned for being wild, authentic, spectacular and rugged and here is my friend’s story who kept wondering if it would live up to her expectations. She left Africa when she was 6, therefore Africa sounded so new to her.Her name is Maxwell and she went on a safari to Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania.

She decided to start describing the game viewing as according to her it was the most exciting moment of her tour. “Never would I imagine seeing so many animals in such a short period of time. In Rwanda we hiked deep into the forest to spend time with a Gorilla family – a Silverback, mature males and females, juveniles and babies! Watching these primates interact with each other and recognize us as friendly visitors truly made me believe in evolution.

We also trekked to see the Monkeys, an experience that filled me with the joy of a child. Watching these small monkeys swing, play, flight, feed and run through the jungle in their natural habitat was thrilling.

Then there was Serengeti- within less than an hour of arriving at the reserve we had seen, heard of zebras, wildebeest, giraffe, buffalo, elephant, hippos and more! On an early morning game drive we saw a cheetah devouring its prey. We watched three, yes three leopards, a mother and her cubs feeding on a Thompson Gazelle in a tree. We watched as a lioness hunted down a warthog just as a snack.

That afternoon we spent watching a pride of lions walking for their evening hunt. We saw hyenas, which later that night, uninvited, visited our camp site. Then the very next morning we quietly observed a pride of lioness stalk a herd of buffalo and later spotted two male lions watching on the other side of the herd in wait.

In Ngorongoro crater we counted seeing nearly all the same animals again in one day. In Lake Nakuru we spotted Rhinos! We watched as a giraffe casually walked the length of the local air strip and our group followed a lioness and her three cubs as they started their evening hunt. In Lake Naivasha we walked, yes walked, with zebras, gazelles and more. We motored a boat past hippos and flamingos.

And the Maasai Mara had been just amazing, we saw beautiful herds of hoofed animals. We watched a pregnant cheetah finding a place to rest. What you would enjoy most is meeting the East African people”. Most are the times when you would get to learn of travel advisories against travelling to most parts of Africa. Unfortunately, these days terrorism is something that can happen anywhere and to anyone, if I can put it better it is a worldwide concern as we sadly see time and again.

The East African people are friendly, welcoming and respectful. They work together towards a brighter future and what will shock you is the Rwandese knowledge of ecotourism. East Africa is a place that anyone would most definitely feel safe throughout their travel.

Vacation Destinations for A Single Men

For most unattached men, the word “single” brings a dual, or should that be duel, feeling. Being single is synonymous with freedom, but on the flip-side, very few men look forward to a lifetime spent alone. Thankfully, there are many destinations for a single vacation where a guy can tackle this conundrum on his own terms, in due time, but always after a hot experience in paradise. Here are five places that are custom-made for a singles holiday.

Medellin, Colombia:

Made for: Adventure-seekers, and romantics The draw: Endless jungles, and seduction as a culture

The terrain surrounding this ancient city is one of the most diverse in Colombia and a great vacation for singles. It has tall mountain peaks, jungle highlands and lowlands, deep gorges and canyons, and amazingly hypnotic farming areas. Every type of terrain offers the opportunity for extreme guided excursions. Places like the Abbura Valley are unmatched in the world for seasonal color. Temesis offers endurance hikes and waterfall rappelling only minutes from the city. Of course, there are thousands of private places like Los Katios National Park, where the jungle meets a crystal clear pool, perhaps with a cave or hot spring. This is the ideal spot for a single guy to entertain a lovely local girl, or fellow traveler in a dream-like setting.

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Made for: Fit men who can dance and who crave noise The draw: 24 hour socializing and parties

Party Mecca for single men is Carnival, and Rio is its home base. Almost all year long, people in this city throw back the curtains for tourists. This is especially true for single guys who are extremely comfortable with leaving their self-loathing behind the moment the step off the plane. Festa (Portuguese for feast/celebration), is ingrained in Brazilian culture. In the ancient world, all roads led to Rome. In Rio, all roads lead to the beach, or a world class nightclub. There are the classics like Ipanema and the Copacabana, but other venues are becoming popular, especially if you have a favorite beach activity. Praia Vermelha is a surf hub, and Praia da Barra da Tijuca is famous for motor sports and parasailing. After working on the tan,go for dancing, drinks, and booty-watching at clubs like Leviano with its massive mosh pit, and Casa Rosa for laser-lit, edgy interaction. Rio might well be the perfect place for singles to holiday.

Bangkok, Thailand

Made for: Urban-oriented, tryst addicts The draw: Food, adult entertainment, and more food

Men from all over the world find Bangkok to be a fascinating study in opposites. There’s no argument that adult entertainment in all forms is a major draw, but local laws and customs must be respected at all times. It’s absolutely possible to find any type of entertainment that you want, but it must be enjoyed on the culture’s terms. Bangkok is like a single traveller’s fantasy theme park, but definitely…ahem, lives up to its name. The people of Bangkok are exotic creatures in familiar westernized, U.S. and Euro-style packages. They are very accommodating to the expectations of single male tourists, and have the inviting currency exchange rate to boot. Restaurants like Xing Fu satisfy a guy’s stomach. Fitness and outdoor gyms help a guy retain his muscle tone while away from home. Elephant riding in the Khoa Yi National Park provides opportunities for selfies to make friends jealous. Adult clubs, lounges and hotel concierge like will certainly where out a single guy’s eyes (if not his entire body). As a single guy wrestles with the notion of settling-down in life, he can get the “wildness” out in this huge bachelor party of a destination.
