Ngorongoro Crater Safari Guide

Without any doubt, the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited.  Nowhere else in this world can you find such an abundance of wildlife, all within a relatively small location, to view all year round.  Beyond the sheer beauty of the crater itself, that is what makes the Ngorongoro Crater so special.  More than anywhere else, you are almost guaranteed to see the wildlife you came to see when you visit Ngorongoro.

20 Tips for Those Visiting Africa for the First Time

It was almost midnight when we touched down at Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania, so there wasn’t much we could see out of the window of the plane.  As our plane taxied up to the main airport building, the anticipation and anxiety of what this experience would be like started to build inside of me.  I was visiting Africa for the first time, and I couldn’t have felt more alive.

If you are planning your first trip to Africa, I am so insanely jealous of you right now.  I wish that I could go back to the stages when I was first planning my trip to Africa for the first time.  There is so much mystery and wonder associated with the continent of Africa.  I remember being both thrilled and terrified to be finally visiting.  I fell in love with Africa almost immediately, and will always love Africa, but there is something magical about that first visit.
