I have read post on visa here, it looks rather good, so provided that you have a hotel reservation -

Thanks in advance

Hello,
This might be a silly question but...
If you organize your trekking to the Simiens directly in the entrance to the National Park, I know they can provide you a cook but what happens with the food?? Should you buy the food?? Cook does it for you and the you pay it to the cook?? You go together with him to buy it??
We are a group of 6 and we are seeing that organizing it in advance is more expensive but I don't know if it will be possible to just arrive to the entrance to the N.P. and…

Hi,
I will visit Tanzania (Tarangire, Ngorogoro, Serengeti) in early to mid September. I heard that visiting the Massai villages can be a little disappointing because it is too touristy and commercialized. Does anyone have any information on that? If I was interested in visiting one, is there a particular one that you would recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Let's quickly introduce ourselves first. We are a Belgian couple who drove an old Land Rover Defender all around Africa, passing 35 countries in 15 months and 69.181kms. That was in 2012-2013. Three years later, we have two kids (actually 1 son of 2 years old and another one who was just born last week) and ever since we left the African continent, we have been dreaming of going back. So now we have 3 months of maternity leave, it seems to be the perfect time to go back where we left Africa and…

Hello travelers.

On a whim, I bought a ticket to Morocco, knowing very little about it.
I'll be arriving and departing from Casa Oct 25-Nov9.
I'm an experienced solo traveler on a tight budget.
Not really interested in cities that much, but of course will have to visit Fez and Marrakesh.
Interested in food, nature, and meeting the locals.

Got any ideas for out of the way / quirky places I should make the effort to see?

Are you going to be in Morocco in the same time, and looking for a travel…

We are renting a car and plan on driving from Durban to East London and Port Elizabeth along the Garden Route and ending up in Cape Town.

However, a friend recently told me that parts of that road are not safe and should not be driven Can anyone shed light on this advice?

Which parts are unsafe and is there another way we can go? We want to drive the Garden Route and need to end up in Cape Town ( and are not attached to being in PE or EL).

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

Hello all! I've now finished my safari (sad face) and am in Moshi. Here is a review I wrote of my week with AAA Express Adventure. I hope you will find it useful. I had a wonderful week and saw as many elephants as I had been hoping for (a LOT)!

Review of AAA Express Adventure Ltd, August 2016

I booked my safari with AAA Express Adventure Ltd after spending many confused hours here in the Thorn Tree and on TripAdvisor trying to decipher real travellers from online touts or the “my friend has a…
