Somewhere in Usambara Mountains

I really don’t regret time and effort needed to arrive in the heart of Tanzanian   Usambara Mountains. If you happen to be in Tanzania, dont skip this place, because its amazing. Little or almost zero muzungu tourists, beautiful mountain views surrounded by forests and the most friendly people I met so far.

Making Coffee on the Slopes of Kilimanjaro

The best coffee i had ever in my life:D

About 20 minutes drive out of Moshi, walk through banana forest and voila, we visited a locals home where they kindly showed us how to make a coffee from a scratch. This was of course paid tour, but since this money goes directly to locals i was happy to participate and visit lovely humble home in stunning hilly area on the slopes of Kilimanjaro.

Serengeti Landscape

In two days i have probably saw only a pixel of mega big 14,763 sq km Serengeti. Definitely worth a bumpy ride!

Along with wildlife i just fell in love with the endless skies  that looked awesome  just in every part of the day. Hypnotic!

Lions of Serengeti

Just came back from safari in Serengeti. There are so many pictures  so i decided to break safari in Tanzania to multiple posts. We had a wonderful chance to observe this amusing lion couple just about 4 meters from the safari car. Lioness was not in the mood for love right a way, but lion was persistent, so finally…. Love is in the air.

This was my second time safari with Shadows of Africa. www.shadowsofafrica.com

Trip To Crater Lake Chala

Another weekend, another trip. This time to Lake Chala which is located on the border Kenya. Magical place, a bit remote but this is what makes it so tranquil. Nirvana for 7 USD per night.

I Am Going To Serengeti!

Travel plans for this Christmas are special, my wish to see mighty Serengeti will come true finally. Last year I already saw Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Lake Eyasi and Lake Manyara. This year I am ready to witness wildebeest migration in full swing in Serengeti! YAY!

Safari in Tanzania sponsored by Safari Junkie. Thanks!

Day Trip To Kilimanjaro National Park

I wanted to do this trip to Kilimanjaro National Park last year but there was not enough time.  One day, 24 kilometers of walking, great guide, 150 USD and here i was, Mandara hut 2720 m. There is another 350 m to Maundi Crater, so  I can say i was on 3000 meters for the first time of my life. If the entrance wasn’t so expensive I would do a two day trip up to Horombo hut…Now i have a reason come back next time, fitter of course:-)

Kids in Arusha

I live out of Arusha in a suburb where children are barefoot playing around with improvised toys. In the back you can see Mt. Meru volcano mountain.

Would Love To Have This in My Garden

Sorry fellow bloggers for not following your posts as much as I would like to! Here is Internet connection really slow so I am not posting as much as i  planned from home. I have now already all settled in Arusha, in a nice quiet neighborhood under the slopes of volcano mountain Meru. As I have to work daily i haven’t manage to utilize my camera yet, just few snapshots with iphone, but since i am gonna stay here for two months i have time to catch up with photography.

I fell in love with this ornamental garden banana tree!
