Africa - kids culture trip
Collected by Kelly Cobb
Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Literally "On Top of the World", this was taken from Uhuru Peak on Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania about 19, 340 feet above ground. We had been hiking for four days when we started our ascent to the top at 11pm the night before after only a few hours of...
Not only did I have the chance to experience the three incredible Singita Grumeti Reserves' lodges (Faru Faru, Sabora Luxury Tented Camp and Sasakwa), but I had the chance to see Singita's new mobile tented camp, Explore, which just opened. Since...

n/a, Zanzibar, Tanzania
I had the pleasure of ending my time in Tanzania with a trip to Chumbe Island, just off the coast of Zanzibar. This tower, called the Lighthouse, is the biggest structure. But there are several wonderful open-air bungalows that you can book for a...
andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, 3936, South Africa
Phinda is a 55,000 acre private game reserve run by &Beyond, the leading safari/wilderness outfitter in Africa. Phinda features several lodges, each of them exquisite and luxurious in their own right. I spent two nights at Rock Lodge, a...

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Kruger National Park, Hazyview, 1242, South Africa

Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, has been experiencing internal conflict since 1991. Most of the city's building have been hit or destroyed by the on-going warfare and suicide attacks, yet the location of the city among the Indian ocean pristine...
403 Rue de La Kasbah، Marrakech 40000, Morocco
The tiny coastal village of Oualidia’s low-key vibe makes it a popular retreat from Marrakech as well as the go-to spot for surfers—novice or otherwise. La Sultana, set against the flamingo-dotted Oualidia lagoon, has 11 rooms and suites that...
Djema el Fna، 40 Rue des Banques, مراكش 40000, Morocco
The thing that struck me the most on our travels through the Kasbah were the façades of the old city were all the same, be it new or old, rich or poor. Unlike the American culture of showing their wealth for all to see and to envy, the...
Lake Manyara, Tanzania
I am a tireless traveler--don't like to miss a thing. So when we bumped our way into the Lake Manyara Lodge in Tanzania one hot and dusty afternoon, I denied that I was feeling ill and decided to buck up for the afternoon game ride. Then our Masai...
