Stella in Tanzania – Part I

March 15, 2013  By: Gretchen

Onsea exteriorStella has arrived in Tanzania for an educational trip. She will visit a number of our favorite lodges throughout the Serengeti and will likely witness the wildebeest migration, as well as see lots of other animals.  We’re excited for her – and a little jealous!  Her is first feedback from her arrival.  We wish her safari njema!

How excited I am to finally be in Tanzania for the first time. After flying on South African Airways from JFK to Jo’burg then connecting to Dar es Salaam, we met our Tanganyika Flying Company pilot and continued to Arusha Airport. After a quick transfer through Arusha at rush hour, I arrived at Onsea House, Onsea foodoverlooking the imposing outline of Mt. Meru. What a great backdrop for dinner, which was incredible! I had a lobster tail appetizer, grouper from the Indian Ocean for dinner, and a fresh raspberry puree with coconut ice cream for desert. But the real highlight at dinner was sharing my first night in Tanzania with all the new people I have met and will get to travel with over the next week. I am looking forward to sharing my travels through the Serengeti with you!

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
