Three weeks of Tanzania in three and a half minutes. An adventure full of surprises. The journey began with an attempted climb to Mount Kilimanjaro, and then visited the hot climate of Zanzibar and capped off with a tour to Africa's famous natural wonders - the Tanzanian safaris.

You'll get to see a quick snapshot of the first 3-day hike of Mount Kilimanjaro; spice farm, stone town and prison island in Zanzibar; and the African...

So you managed to stumble upon this blog post. Many people plan their safari trips six to nine months prior. I won't be telling you which safaris are the best within Africa. I assume that you have picked Tanzania already. It's not a bad choice. Serengeti National Park is one of the most famous safaris in the world. In this blog post, I will tell you which safaris you should go (in Tanzania) and what kind of animals you will se...

Five days of safari in five minutes. You'll get to see a quick snapshot of Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara. All the big five are also captured in this video (with a picture of a tiny rhino). Anyhow, you got to see the Ngorongoro Crater yourself.

Where is Zanzibar?

Zanzibar is located outside the coast of Tanzania. It is extremely close to the capital of Tanzania, Dar Es Salaam. I kid you not, my flight from the capital to Zanzibar was only 14 minutes.

Zanzibar is famous for its beaches. It is the resort of Africa and locals are proud to distinguish themselves from the people in the capital – they say they are much more relaxed and like to chat. I must attest that some o...

I spent a quick 3-day trip in Zanzibar, a last-minute destination to spend my 2019 New Years Eve. At this small island, I explored the spice farm and prison island. The beach in Zanzibar was okay but you must be able to bear the heat. My friends and I purposely stayed at Stone Town, a heritage site in Zanzibar. You shall be warned, there is no AC (or barely any AC).

If you do visit Zanzibar, bring yourself a fan. Enjoy!

What is Mount Kilimanjaro?

If you are reading this, I don’t think I need to explain what Mount Kilimanjaro is. But in case you really don’t know, the TLDR version is: Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in Africa, with its summit of 5,895 metres (19,341 feet) above sea level. Are you impressed now?

In case you want to compare with the height of Mount Everest (the highest mountain in the world), its summit sta...

This video blog documented my journey to climb Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Lemosho route - the highest mountain in Africa! It was all fun until my knee completely gave up. I have a history of the "Runner's Knee" problem, so the climb aggravated my knee and there was a temporary flare. Unfortunately, I could not curl my knee at all and climbing down was painful. I had to make the executive decision and ended the climb at Shir...

After much delay, here is a summary of my trip that showcases the beauty of the lands of Africa.

The last thing that I’d like to write about Southern Africa is Namibia’s Sand Dunes in Sossusvlei.

What is this?

Namibia is famous for its deserts. The beauty of the deserts attracts many tourists every year. What makes this desert special, and different from others such as the Peruvian desert or the Sahara is that Namibia’s desert is comprised of red sand. The most famous desert in Namibia is Sossusvlei.

Sossusvlei has everythin...

Rather than giving you a complete guide to the safaris, I am just giving you the quick facts and tips to Chobe National Park. If you really want a complete guide, there are tons of material online and from travel books. One that I would recommend is Fodor’s Travel: The Complete Guide to African Safaris.

Why Chobe National Park?

Chobe National Park is one of the best safari parks out there in Africa. First of all, it’s huge. This...
