Masai Mara Game Reserve, Narok, Kenya
Every day we saw something different. I would definitely recommend at least a 3 day safari. We were able to see the big five (elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, buffalo) and then some. Simply spectacular!
Save Place
Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
A persistent rumor has it that Mount Kilimanjaro actually belonged to Kenya until colonial times when Queen Victoria gave it to her grandson Kaiser Wilhelm, who governed what would become Tanzania, as a rather lavish birthday...

The Mursi tribe live in the remote part of southwest Ethiopia. These people are part of what national geographic calls the "last frontier' and had no notion of the outside world until the seventies. They have extensive cultural features . The...

Kirua, Tanzania
Kilasiya Falls is one of a dozen marked and unmarked waterfalls if you turn left instead of right at Marangu Mtoni on your way up Mount Kilimanjaro. Local guides in Marangu will be happy to give you a tour of some of the lower falls for a small...

Jinja, Uganda

Chimpanzee Island, Uganda
Ngamba Island Sanctuary in Uganda is one of the only places in the world where you can have an up close experience with almost-wild chimpanzees. I’ve taken an hour-long boat ride from Entebbe to the island, for the opportunity to walk and play...

Virunga Mountains, Rwanda
I was shaking with excitement and my stomach was in knots as I locked eyes with Agashya, the Silverback of Group 13. This was on the Rwandan side of the Virunga Mountains, where half of the remaining 700 mountain gorillas live. And for over an...

Accessible only by boat, and with a daily rhythm determined by the tides, this beach resort co-founded by Scottish fashion and costume designer Ellis Flyte sits on the southwest of Pemba Island, a 30-minute flight from Unguja, the main,...
