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

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

Tanzania Visa Requirements to Visit the Serengeti National Park

February 6th, 2011
You've probably seen this week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site in numerous nature shows. The Serengeti National Park is one of the most famous national parks not only in Tanzania, but in all of Africa. You know all of those "Trials of Life" type specials that show wildebeests, antelopes and zebras as they migrate in search of water? Yup, that happens here. The "Great Migration" happens twice a year, in October and then again in April. More than 2 million animals participate, and herds of wildebeests, eland, gazelles and zebra literally fill the horizon. Naturally, lions and other predators fallow the herds, looking for stragglers. It's an amazing, unforgettable event. Of course, even if you aren't there for the Great Migration, there's still plenty of wildlife to see in the Ser
