I have spent many years ( since 1996) traveling, working & partying in East Africa - mainly in Tanzania where I have a home and work as a safari guide, but have roamed around Kenya, Uganda & Malawi quite a bit.
I am not really interested in getting clients off this site as the company I work for is quite top end and only does a small number of exclusive safari's each season but am more than willing to give advice, help and recommendations to people wishing to visit Tanzania.
Aug 2011 - I made a long safari (24 days) from the north of Tanzania to the south taking in the attractions along the way. Started from Arusha, headed west then south along T5 highway to Kondo, where I visited the rock art sites. Then onto Dodoma (Capital of TZ), before pushing on to Ruaha National Park to spend 4 days there in a remote camp. Lots of great game - plenty of elephants and lion. T
Next to Iringa - a nice town, reminiscent of Arusha in the old days. Camped outside of the town on the banks of the Little Ruaha river. From there visited the stone aged tool site of Isimila - great rock formations in the gorge.
Next I turned east and headed for a few days camping in Mikumi NP - despite having a highway running through it and considerable human habitation close by I was quite taken by the place. Next was Udzungwa Mountains NP - no roads in the park so I did some walking and camping - lovely forest and water falls. From there to Morogoro before turning south and into the mighty Selous Game Reserve via the back door! Got into the reserve and promptly got myself lost for 4 hours before finding my campsite. 4 days in the Selous before I headed to the coast, up through Dar and on Pangani.
Have done lots of independent travel across the globe.
My passions are wildlife, culture and parties.
Have fun on your travels
