Earlier this year, the staff from Tanzania-Experience went to visit the Nkoanekoli Secondary School which we have been supporting for the last few years.

Some 60 schoolchildren from Tanzania recently experienced a safari for the first time in their lives.

Just about 5 hours after I departed from Johannesburg with the non-stop flight from Kulula, I arrive in Dar es Salaam. This small airline is only one of many that offer a fast and direct connection between the largest city in South Africa and the largest coastal town in Tanzania.
