In our itineraries we talk about game drives, sundowners and bush TV’s. But what do we actually mean with these safari terms? And what can you expect of a day on safari in Tanzania? Let’s start by saying that every safari is unique and no day is the same. The anticipation, not knowing which animals you may find today, is an essential part of the adventure. In general, however, this what a typical day on a Tanzania safari may look like. Early start of your safari day Even if you are not a morning person, we can assure you: waking up early has never been so easy! You will rise with the sun around 6.00 am. Most lodges offer a wake-up service, sometimes with tea or coffee. We advise to have an early breakfast before setting off around 7.00 am for your first morning game drive. A game drive is a leisurely drive in the park to look for animals. This can take from an hour or two up till a full day in case you prefer to explore more of the area. Morning game drive Early morning is usually the

Current situation in Tanzania Despite all the developments regarding new variants, Tanzania has remained calm and stable. Life continues as usual and is taking place mostly outdoors thanks to the favorable climate. Preventive measures are taken throughout the country and at all public areas you will find hand washing stations. Apart from that, there is little to notice. Even though still little numbers of infections have been released lately, based on what we hear and see the situation
Are you tired of being at home and are the walls closing in on you? Do you long for space and freedom? Sun and nature? Stop dreaming… but book you escape now! Working from home, the new “normal” Since the start of the Corona crisis, many people swapped their office desk for their kitchen or dining table and began working from home. Probably not the most inspiring environment, especially when you are easily distracted by waiting household chores. But working from home is considered to be the new “normal”. And it looks like it will stay that way for a while… So what if we would tell you that you can exchange your home desk for a stunning, peaceful surrounding? Replace the boring white walls for panoramic views of a national park or the Indian Ocean? A remote working location with free and reliable WiFi, enough space for social distancing. And not to forget, plenty of opportunities to spend your free moments in an adventurous, or completely relaxing, way! Rem
Kindly be informed that Tanzania will ban all plastic carrier bags effective 1 June 2019. In an effort to step up the fight against plastic pollution in the country, the government will implement a new law that prohibits the use, manufacture and import of all plastic bags, regardless of their size or thickness. If you are traveling to Tanzania we advise you to not bring in any plastic bags in your suitcase or carry-on hand luggage. Items purchased at the airport should be removed from their plastic bag as well before disembarking. However, the special “zip-lock” bags for keeping liquids, cosmetics and toiletries separately in your hand luggage will still be allowed. We do hope that you can appreciate this initiative to protect the environment and that any inconveniences will remain minimal. At the same time, we would like to encourage you to think about suitable ways on how to make your travel more sustainable. Should you have any questions about this new regulation, do not
