On safari with Enock: time to enjoy the small moments

Enock has been part of the Tanzania-Experience team since 2013; his vast knowledge and great humour have made him a favourite with our guests. As safari guide he is at home in the national parks and out and about most of the time – we caught up with him when he popped in at the office to find out what keeps him going.

A family safari: what to keep in mind when going on safari with children

Travelling to East Africa and going on a safari is certainly a special and memorable experience for the whole family. Few places will get you this close to nature and show your children a world incomparable to what they know from home. That being said, I know from my own experience, that there are a few things, you should consider before going on a family safari in Tanzania.

Electronics on Kilimanjaro: what you really need on your climb

On your way to the Roof of Africa you don’t want to carry unnecessary ballast. While porters carry your food, your tent and other equipment, you will have to carry your own day pack. Admittedly, compared to what the porters heft up the mountain, your day pack is rather negligible. But schlepping up what you don’t need is still out of the question.

Choosing a tour operator in Tanzania: what to look out for when deciding on a safari operator

Choosing the right tour operator for your safari in Tanzania or any other country will be one of the most important decisions you make before going on your trip. Book with a legitimate business and they will take you on an epic trip of a lifetime.

The best lodges for families in Tanzania: where to stay on a family safari

Going on safari as a family is a very special experience. Spending time in nature offers a break from daily schedules and an opportunity to bond and make family memories together.

Our Mobile Explorer Camp: behind the scenes of a mobile safari

Venturing out into the wild, staying at an unfenced private campsite in the middle of the bush, separated only by the canvas of your tent from hyenas and elephants passing by at night – that’s a private mobile safari in our Mobile Explorer Camp. What sounds like and indeed is a great adventure assumes an even greater amount of trust.

Architects of the animal kingdom: the weaverbird

Right in front of our operations office, there stands a large tree. Letting your imagination kick in, it could even look like a wild Christmas tree. Round balls hang from the branches, beige, green and brown in colour. Looking closely, you will see that these are birds’ nests, weaver birds to be exact. This family of sparrow-like birds is known throughout Sub-Saharan Africa for its impressive nest building skills.

Tree climbing lions: of big cats aiming high

A cat in a tree, you’ve seen it before and if it wasn’t your house cat – let’s face it, how many city cats go on adventures these days – it’s still a common sight in children’s books. And even your house cat’s wild relatives in Africa climb up the scratchy bark without problems. Leopards that is! Tree climbing lions on the other hand have long been considered very rare.

Grzimek Family and the Serengeti: the men who counted the wildebeests

Few conservationists have had such a lasting and public relationship with the Serengeti as Bernhard and Michael Grzimek. You might have heard about father-and-son team and their award-winning documentary “The Serengeti Shall Not Die” or seen a faded picture of their zebra-striped Dornier aircraft. Let’s take a closer look at the men who counted the wildebeests.
