The ideal mountain, bush and beach destination: Mount Kilimanjaro rises up from the plains as Africa's highest mountain. Magnificent wildlife abounds where you can witness the Great Migration thundering across the Serengeti to the Mara across the epic Rift Valley. The towering walls of the Ngorongoro Crater hosts an entire ecosystem in one place. What better way to end all this adventure than relaxing on the white sandy beaches of the Spice Island (Zanzibar) with its fascinating Stone Town and rich Arabic Culture...or diving in the pristine waters of the Mnemba coral atoll ... visit the origin of man at Olduvai Gorge - no wonder everyone resonates with this part of the world.... and there is still so much more to explore.

🙂 Mount Kilimanjaro. Spectacular wildlife. Incredible dive sites. Olduvai Gorge (misspelling of Oldupai, a Masai word for a sisal plant which grows in the area) – the most important paleoanthropological locality in the world which holds the earliest evidence of the existence of our human ancestors.

🙁 Crazy drivers and bag-snatching. Being searched by drunken, high marijuana smoking soldiers wielding AK47s in our faces. Blatant bribery at airports and borders.
