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.

  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
  • It was an exciting day at the ATM travel market yesterday in Dubai being interviewed on @instagramforbusiness on how I turned my passion into a successful career and on how my business works. I’ll be writing an article on the Q&A of the sessions too! I couldn’t take photos inside the hall but here is a throwback of the time I spent my week Cambodia 🇰🇭 and I’ve also written couple of articles and info on my time there on my site! Happy Monday! 😊
  • It’s the possibility of having all my dreams come true that makes my life so beautiful - Yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t get to miss some certain moments like this one. In the middle of Laikipia - I left my heart ♥️
  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.
