A Diary in Tanzania

Destination Tanzania

I had the most diverse experiences in Tanzania. One day I was standing at the Uhuru Summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro at 5895m and the next I was in the Serengeti watching the lions and the leopards.

Stayed at On Kilimanjaro it was all in a tent. No hotels up there but the stay was spectacular nonetheless. In the Serengeti I stayed at Ikoma tented camp. On the Ngorngoro crater I stayed at the Serena Safari Lounge.  The hotels were amazing. All of them were exactly what they claim to be and much more. All of them are in the national park so there are always animals around to see. The Masaai tribes protect the hotels and give a great cultural infusion to the whole experience. The dining experience at all the accommodations was a combination of local dishes and international cuisine. 

Diary Climbing Kilimanjaro is pretty straight forward. Wake up. Walk. Sleep. Repeat. But all the while taking in the incredible experience that is the worlds tallest free standing mountain. It is really an epic experience that requires volumes to describe. On Safari my diary, if i kept one, would be filled with thoughts on how we as human beings don’t fit in this perfect natural equation that we were witnessing every day.

What To Pack Shorts, T shirts, waterproof pants, waterproof shorts, waterproof poncho, hat, scarf, gloves, high altitude waterproof mountain wear, hiking shoes, gaiters, flipflops, sunscreen (and lots of it), back pack, 3 water bottles, sunglasses, hiking poles. 

Where to Eat The restaurant at the Serena Lodge Hotel in Ngorongoro had the best local cuisine at dinner and probably the best breakfast spread I have seen.

Where to Shop  Shopping is limited in the area unless you are looking to buy tourist trinkets. If you are its best to buy it directly from Massai villages to support the local community.

What Month September

Traveling Tip If you are climbing Kilimanjaro,

don’t be fooled by those who call it easy.It is not easy. It is an extremely challenging hike and the mountain deserves the utmost respect.

In terms of things not to do I would avoid staying out late at night without a local if you are venturing into the towns of Arusha or Moshi. Its not dangerous but its better to have someone to help you find your way around. If you are on Safari do not walk around without an escort at night. The hotels and tented accommodations are in the open safari and animals have been known to linger around the sites.

How to get there I flew through Doha on Qatar airways. Qatar Airways flies to Kilimanjaro International Airport via Dar Es Salam. Its reasonably comfortable depending on the plane you get.

  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:

  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
