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


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

To help lure tourists in 2011, Tanzania is designating a new national park on tiny Saa-Nane Island. The island, located in Lake Victoria near the town of Mwanza, is already a wildlife sanctuary and will soon become Tanzania's 16th National Park.

Tanzanian Visa Requirements to Visit the Ngorongoro Crater

October 23rd, 2010
Two to three million years ago in Tanzania, a massive volcano collapsed, scarring the land with a huge crater. Today, this ancient crater, called Ngorongoro Crater, is home to one of the densest wildlife populations in Africa. All of the famous "big five" African animals live here: lions, leopards, rhinos, African buffalo and elephants. There are also cheetahs, zebras, hippos, flamingos, ostrich, hyena and many more rare and beautiful animals. Inside Ngorongoro Crater, there are forests, swamps, great salt lakes and grasslands. The diversity of habitat is one reason that there are so many different animals here. The plentiful wildlife attracts around 450,000 visitors each year, and there are many companies offering tours inside the crater. Just do your research ahead of time and make sur


Tanzanian Visa Requirements for a Kilimanjaro Charity Climb

October 15th, 2010
Is Mt. Kilimanjaro on your bucket list? What if you could climb to the top of it, stand on the summit, and know that in addition to conquering Africa's highest mountain, you were also raising money f0r a good cause? If you climb with the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, you can do just that. (H/t Gadling).  As they do every year, the group is holding a number of charity climbs to help raise money for African children affected by the AIDS epidemic.  The group provides much-needed medical supplies and medications that can help children with HIV live longer, fuller lives. There is no cure for the HIV virus or for AIDS, but modern medicine can keep it from being a swift death sentence-but most infected children in Africa don't have access to it.  In addition to pro
