THE CHALLENGE - WHAT TO DO FIRST

...making a decision about what to do first, what to do in the middle and then how to end up - because time overruns always get in the way

THE SOLUTION

...you face a bewildering variety of options and no doubt your friends and family have their ideas about what should happen on a first trip to Africa. In response Tony has sketched a few options or modules - the elements of which are flexible. He would like you to spend time reviewing each itinerary along with the highlights in the slide show at the top of the page and then talk to him. Or Barbara, or both.
Tanzania
African wildlife in the tens of thousands must make this country the wildlife capital of the world. It is here Tony works with top notch, registered safari operators, many of whom have become personal friends over the years. Safari opportunities abound and a short list includes the Serengeti National Park, famed for the October and November annual migrations of zebra and wildebeest. The 40km long column must withstand an orgy of killing, river crossings, forced marches and mating while predators work away at its flanks. Cheetah watch the open plains, leopards hunt the river bank acacia’s while the lions follow the mass, slaying at will. All three jackal species hunt here along with hyenas. Beyond this annual spectacle Serengeti remains the greatest wildlife refuge and national park in central Africa. It hosts elephant and giraffe in numbers, great herds of buffalo, thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. For a unique uncrowded experience this is the place to safari with your camera. Tarangire National Park during the dry season has, with its baobab studded landscape and many dry river beds one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Tanzania. Great for watching elephants, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and Cape buffalo Ngorongoro Conservation area borders the Serengeti and includes the world’s largest crater, serving as a natural barrier to every species in East Africa. With some of the densest wildlife populations in the world its a veritable wildlife paradise, bring every camera you have. The Masai also live in the area and parts of the Olduvai Gorge can be seen marking the site where some of man’s earliest remains have been found. The fabulous old world port of Zanzibar. Famous for its spices, it was once an important slave trading post under its Arab rulers. Stone Town, the capital, is a World Heritage site with historic traditional houses and narrow alleyways and the Sultans Palace. The adventurous climb Africa’s highest mountain - Mt Kilimanjaro and at 19,336 ft it is walkable but requires good gear, sensible preparation and 7 to 10 days including ‘the walk’ up to Uhuru peak.
