Get a Tanzanian Visa to Watch Wildlife in Luxury

July 3rd, 2011
If you've always wanted to go on safari but were a little bit put off by the idea of "roughing it" in the wilds of Africa, you'll be pleased to note that a new, luxury camp has opened in the Serengeti. (via Gadling.) Lamai Serengeti Camp, run by Nomad Tanzania, is situated in an isolated part of the park, close to the Mara River. It's the perfect place to view the creatures of the African savanna without having to give up your own creature comforts. The camp's location also gives you front-row seats to the Great Migration- specifically, that "Trials of Life" moment when the wildebeest cross the river. The camp is subdivided into two smaller camps, each with its own facilities, including a bar, a swimming hole, a dining hall and a library. The tents have indoor plumbing and flushable toi

Places to Go With Your Tanzanian Visa: Tarangire National Park

April 30th, 2011
The Serengeti gets all the glory, but if you're visiting Tanzania, make sure you carve some time out for Tarangire National Park as well. Frommer's, who recently named Tarangire one of the best parks in Tanzania, says that "While the focus for most travelers to Tanzania is nearby Serengeti, many come away claiming lesser-known Tarangire as the real highlight of their trip." What makes Tarangire so special? At only 2,850 square kilometers, it may not be the largest park in Africa, but it has one of the densest wildlife populations - proof that sometimes good things do come in small packages. Here, you'll see elephants, zebra, wildebeest and scores of antelope, including the fabled oryx, often thought to have inspired the legend of the unicorn. Look up in the ancient baobab trees, an

Get a Kenyan Visa for a Safari in Masai Mara

April 22nd, 2011
If you're in Kenya looking for wildlife, you have a lot of national parks and reserves to choose from.  However, Masai Mara National Park is quite possibly the best place to go. The reserve is huge in and of itself, with 938 square miles of protected area. It's also contiguous with the Serengeti Reserve in Tanzania, giving the animals even more space and allowing for a diverse population of wildlife. The "Big Five "-- lions, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos and elephants -- get top billing, but you can also see a staggering number of smaller but equally interesting creatures, including wildebeest, baboons, giraffe, zebra, hyena and many different types of antelopes.  Plus, there are multitudes of birds including ostriches, cranes and hornbills. The park is well-developed for tourism, with

Travel Visas for the Tour d’Afrique

February 9th, 2011
The Tour de France? That's nothing! Try riding across the entire African continent on a bicycle! Since 2003, a hardy bunch of cyclists has been doing just that, as part of the Tour d'Afrique. The Tour d'Afrique crosses the entire African continent, from Egypt to South Africa, approximately 7,500 miles. While some participants are there to race, many others are just there for the experience and travel at their own pace, so people of all ages are welcome as long as you are in good shape and like to ride. The Tour d'Afrique takes a good four months to complete, and like most epic-level travel experiences, it's not cheap. The full tour will set you back €8,900, not including your bike, supplies for your bike, food on rest days, flights or visas. Fortunately, you can also sign on to just

Get an Ethiopian Visa to Get Up-Close-and-Personal with a Volcano

January 15th, 2011
Last week, I highlighted Ethiopia for its amazing adventure travel potential. This week, I found an awesome (if expensive) vacation package that proves the point: Volcano Discovery's Ethiopian volcano tours. Their "Desert, Salt and Volcanoes" tour takes you into the Danakil Desert, a place that National Geographic once referred to as "the Cruelest Place on Earth." In the desert, you'll visit salt mines, including an active volcano buried under a thick layer of salt. You'll also climb to the top of the active Erta Ale volcano and spend three days and nights observing the volcano and the fiery lakes of lava in its crater. This 14-day expedition costs a mighty 3,760 Euro, but you'll be rewarded with the trip of a lifetime and the ability to forever boast that you stood in front of a vol
