Impressive Tanzania

30 May 2023 | Mirjam, Frans en Kim

The moment you decide to go to Tanzania and know absolutely nothing about Africa, you start looking for a touroperator that can help you. Explore Tanzania was the one who after I called, came up with a travel proposal within a few days that met our expectations exactly.

We flew into Dar es Salaam, spent the night in a hotel near the airport, because the next morning at 7am we flew on to Iringa where our daughter is volunteering. In a bajaji to Iringa centre, visited the market among other things and stayed overnight at Sunset Hotel, excellent with very friendly staff. The next day our driver/guide John picked us up and the safari began. Via Dodoma, where we spent the night, we drove on to Tarangire National Park. What impressions those first few days. From Iringa, a friendly town, over a road with potholes and parts unpaved and with many small villages where there is a lot of poverty and shouting “Mzungu” (white man) at us to a national park where tourists are quite normal. Spent the night at Tarangire Safari Lodge where you have great views of the park from your accommodation and where blue balls (monkeys) and dikdiks (smallest deer) happily walk around you. Next day did a game drive through the park. Overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery and wildlife.

Overnight in Karatu at Marera Valley Lodge, a very luxurious lodge with lovely pool, excellent food and friendly staff.

NgorongoroEarly next day, set off for Ngorongoro Conservation Aria. The viewpoint of Ngorongoro Crater on the Ngorongoro Highlands and was in the clouds at the time we were there. Unfortunately no view, but we could still see the Crater from the other side. Drove on to Serengeti National Park for a 3-day visit to the park. What beautiful views across the endless plains! Drove many kilometres and saw lots of beautiful animals. The rhino did not show itself, which is the only thing we missed. The nights at Hippo Trails Camp were very special. A buffalo, hippos and giraffes walked around our tent at night. That was quite exciting… After a fat week in Tanzania, it was time to go home again. We look back on an unforgettable trip in a beautiful country!
