  • Reaching the Roof of Africa - Kili Climb with Hisashi & Saori

    Congratulations to Hisashi and Saori who the other day successfully reached the peak of Kilimanjaro!

    Despite being Africa's highest mountain, the Kilimanjaro climb can be done by almost anyone! Although demanding you don't need to be an experienced climber to reach the summit.

    There are many different routes to the top which range in difficulty and scenery. Hisashi and Saori, who reached Uhuru Peak on the 24th of August, took the Marangu Route, commonly known as the Tourist Route, with guide Amir from our team. The climb took 5 days and the two were both ecstatic when they made it to the top!

  • Tree-Climbing Lions of Lake Manyara

    A Tree-Climbing Treat

    Lake Manyara, once the filming location for the classic Hollywood Tarzan movies, is a popular safari stop between Arusha and the Serengeti for a variety of reasons including its huge variety of bird-life and its wallowing hippos.

    However, it is the park's tree-climbing lions that are an especially popular sight with visitors. Up until recently, only Lake Manyara and Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park could boast this rare sight - although recent reports say that the phenomenon has now spread to the Serengeti as well.

    Our recent clients, Shwana & Jennifer, were lucky enough to spot them in both Lake Manyara and the Serengeti!

    Of course, this wasn't all they saw! In addition to catching a glimpse of the Wildebeest Migration in motion, they also spotted cheetahs, a variety of fascinating birds, and even a few topi!

    Guided by our experienced guide, Bashiru (the photographer on these shots), they crossed the Serengeti, ducked through Lake Manyara, and even paid a visit to the local Masai.

    Our recent client, Valentina had a memorable time on her safari across the Serengeti and Ngorongoro.

    Below, you'll find just a few snapshots from her exciting five day safari.
