5 Things to know before you go to Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

on Oct 19, 18

Blog Image

 5 Things to know before you go to Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania. The Ngorongoro crater in the greater Serengeti National Park area is a natural cage. Pardon my use of words here, seems harsh in light of describing a wildlife wonder. But the animals here are literally trapped and have nowhere to go. But it is not bad at all, really! From the animals perspective, they have 2,000 feet high walls of the caldera protecting them while they enjoy a rich savannah ecosystem on the crater’s floor covering more than 260 sqkm. From our perspective, first, the view is simply mind-boggling. To top that up, the crater offers the highest density of mammalian predators in Africa.

Best of Kenya Safari- 8 Day Itinerary

Welcome to Kenya, the greatest wildlife watching destination on earth. Best of Kenya Safari- An 8 Day Itinerary.  It is hard to choose my favourite wildlife encounter in Kenya. Most of the time, I zero down on the Wildebeest Migration in Maasai Mara I witnessed the greatest natural spectacle on earth. Then suddenly, my mind sways to picture perfect view at Amboseli National Park; herds of African Elephants (easily in 100s) with a spectacular backdrop of the snowy peak of Africa’s highest Mt. Kilimanjaro. At that moment, I remember how sailing in a wooden boat right next to mighty hippos in Lake Naivasha sent shivers down my spine. You know what? I give up. I loved every single bit of Kenya!

Surprising Egypt: A Classic 7 days Itinerary to the Land of the Pyramids

on Aug 15, 18

Blog Image

Egypt needs 7 Days • Spend 2 nights in Cairo admiring the pyramids and getting lost in the National Museum. • Take a short flight to Aswan and directly get onboard on your Nile cruise (3 nights). Do not take either the night or the day train from Cairo; the journey is arduous and extremely tiring. • As your Nile cruise leisurely sails its way up to Luxor, it will give you enough time to explore the Edfu and Kombo Ombo temples that come along the way. • Once in Luxor, take a private transfer to Hurghada. Enjoy the best snorkeling, diving and just the tranquil red sea for 2 nights before heading back to Cairo. • This sums to around 7 nights – 8 days, perfect for a Saturday to Sunday break!
