Travel: 5 Reasons to visit Ruaha National Park, Tanzania

You would be forgiven if you have never heard of Ruaha National Park, it seems to be one of the best kept secrets in the safari world. But those that know it and have been fortunate enough to visit it, return again and again to this truly unique and diverse wilderness. Here are a few reasons why you might want to investigate this amazing place and put it to the top of your 2018 safari wishlist.

Spectacular sighting: White baboon spotted in Arusha

I was driving my three-door RAV4 on the road leading to the part of the national park called ‘small Serengeti’ with Mount Meru standing majestically in front of me while I watched the nearby giraffes, zebras, baboons and buffaloes, when a brilliant flash of white caught my eye!

Video: Maasai coming of age ceremony

For the Maasai, the Emuratare is one of their most important ceremonies, and a life-changing milestone for the boys and girls who celebrate their transition into adulthood.

Can carbon measuring save Tanzania’s forests?

Up until now I have never been involved in projects that mitigate climate change, however during my last expedition, I had the opportunity to spend some time exploring the greater Mahale ecosystem and Carbon Tanzania’s newest project site.

Paragliding Kili

For the more adventurous (or crazy – subject on how you look at it), climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is only the first step, before you throw yourself off it… I mean paraglide off it.

Video: Protecting Maasai cattle

The importance of the Maasai’s livestock is mirrored in the way their homestead is constructed, with the cattle enclosure positioned in the centre of it.

Opinion: Are Maasai cattle to blame for overgrazing in Tanzania?

Living with the Maasai has taught me that conservation is not only about animals but is just as much about us humans; that to preserve any one place we have to be mindful of the local communities that live within it and try to understand the way they view the world to be able to work alongside them to protect mother nature.

The advantages of choosing a shorter safari

Video: Maasai warriors water their cattle – their wealth

For the Maasai, cattle is considered extremely valuable and form an intrinsic part of their daily lives. Their cattle are at the centre of everything, providing food and materials, as well as playing an important role in their rituals and representing their wealth and status

A love story made in Tanzania

I dreamt of him, and of what would await me at his home, his boma, where he lived with his entire family. Nerve-wracking enough to visit your boyfriend’s home for the first time, never mind meeting his parents, grandmother, brothers, sisters, cousins and whoever else lived at the place.

Marine flatworms: The butterflies of the sea

Labelled the butterflies of the sea, we often ask ourselves why are marine flatworms so vibrantly coloured? Is it simply that they can be, therefore they are? Or is there a deeper significance?

The wonderful world of nudibranchs

Nudibranchs (the naked gills) are molluscs, the flamboyant snails of the ocean. Their colours and shapes are stunning, and their multiple forms elegant and striking.

Restless nomads and the walking safari

A myriad of African adventures awaits the fervent traveller: tented camps, off-the-beaten-track destinations, luxury lodges, camps and mobile camps that follow the natural migration route of the wildebeest throughout the year.
