MALAWI – THE WARM HEART OF AFRICA

Published on Marzec 17, 2012 By admin

With Tanzania’s and Zambia’s famous national parks and Mozambique’s glorious beaches, Malawi has so far been left unexplored by tourists. What we only hear about this small strip of land is its huge Lake Malawi (Nyasa) slicing through the whole country, its grim poverty and some serious corruption. But we’ve decided to give it a […]

Once you got lost in a maze of narrow alleyways of Stone Town, haggled in bazaars and gorged on fresh fish it’s time to move on to some of the most beautiful beaches of nothern Zanzibar.

The moment you arrive in central Dar-es-Salaam you’re totally overwhelmed by frantic crowds spilling from everywhere, noise and hawkers tugging at your clothes and offering their wares. Our oriental adventure starts here at the harbour when we board a “Kilimanjaro” ferry destined for a tantalising island of Zanzibar. After two hours of cruising the Indian […]

I loved Daisy, Elisa, Helen and Kellie but especially their graceful manner of picking each pellet with long and extremely sticky tongues.

Driving along the rim of Ngorongoro Crater in the morning mist I did not expect a big herd of buffaloes to materialise just in front of our Landrover.I’m about two metres from the nearest mighty horns but, fortunately, they seem more interested in the road than us. One by one, they pass in the long […]
