Tanzania safaris guides right now? Africa is a fascinating destination if you are looking for raw wildlife exploration. Some lodges don’t allow children under six on game drives, others have a “no children under 12” policy. But there are plenty of family-friendly safari operators, many lodges have swimming pools and babysitting services, and going on safari as a family is one of the most rewarding experiences for children and their parents, an educational adventure that can instil in travellers of all ages a deeper respect for the natural world and our place in it. There’s a reason it’s called “wildlife”. The animals you’ll see on safari, even in reserves and national parks, are wild and many of them are dangerous predators. That said, safari operators take every precaution to keep you safe by giving you a few rules for game drives (such as: don’t stand up in the vehicle) and providing guards who patrol camps and lodges and can even escort you back to your room after dark in case of an unexpected close encounter with a leopard or baboon. Self-drive safaris occasionally make the news, but are safe if you obey a few simple but essential guidelines such as: keep the windows up and the doors locked, never leave your vehicle and don’t harass the animals.
Local gastronomy: It will definitely be a unique experience, but do not expect to be prepared. Given the low living standards of African countries, their traditional foods are simplistic, based on meat and vegetables. In Tanzania and Kenya you will find Ugali – a kind of white lobster (made from maize, maize or sorghum) served with fish, meat or vegetables. In Cape Verde, if you are a fan of fish and seafood, be prepared for good experiences: it is only in the middle of the Atlantic. In Madagascar you will eat a lot of rice with vegetables and you should not avoid the “rice cake” – their bread based on rice. If you are more conservative, do not worry, because you will find many restaurants with European specificity: many people from the old continent have retired to Tanzania and have opened a restaurant.

Kenya safari tip : Seaside area – tens and hundreds of resorts stretch along the white beaches and the green sea and permanently warm to the north and south of Mombassa. Diani Beach is generally considered to be the best beach in the area, but do not expect an experience typical of large seaside resorts – there are not many areas with bars, discos, restaurants, all concentrated within the resort. The city on the coast of Mombassa is quite dangerous and it is best to visit the group. Mount Kenya – Did you climb Kilimanjaro and did you like it? Try the younger brother, Mount Kenya. The landscapes will make you not regret the few hours of cardio. Nairobi – the combination of modern and traditional you will probably like. It is not an impressive city, but it is an experience in itself. You should not miss the Giraffe Center, where you can get closer to the giraffes and, if you give them a little food, you will feel their tongue extremely dry on your fingers.
