Featured Destinations

Nairobi

Nairobi

Nairobi is Kenya's capital and one of Africa's most modern and fastest growing major cities. The original center retains Asian influence in its older buildings with glassy modern buildings. Visit City Market with local produce and handicrafts. Other attractions are: National Museum, displaying ethnographic, paleontological and ornithological exhibits; the Arboretum, with an excellent collection of East African flora; the University, known for its unique architecture; the excellent Kenya Railway Museum; and Nairobi's landmark, the extraordinary Kenyatta Conference Center, the country's most monumental building, visible from miles outside the city. There are casinos at Safari Park Hotel and Inter-Continental, and there's Sunday-afternoon horse-racing. Visit Karen Blixen Museum, where some action of the book and film Out of Africa took place. The beautiful forested Ngong Hills is a spiritual place for the Maasai and an excellent area for hiking and enjoying views of Nairobi and the Rift Valley. Nairobi National Park is a wildlife game reserve.
Destination Guide
Serengeti

Serengeti

Today, the Serengeti National Park helps protect the greatest and most varied collection of terrestrial wildlife on earth, and one of the last great migratory systems still intact. The Serengeti is the jewel in the crown of Tanzania's protected areas and has come to symbolize paradise. The region encompasses Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Maswa Game Reserve, the Loliondo, Grumeti and Ikorongo Controlled Areas and Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established within the region. It's unique ecosystem has inspired writers and filmakers as well as numerous photographers and scientists. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.
Destination Guide
Bagamoyo
Stone Town

Stone Town

Stone Town is located in the charming island of Zanzibar, just off the coast of Tanzania,Africa. The city is the most popular and important in the island, its capital. When visiting Stone Town you will find some of the most prominent historical and artistic influences in eastern Africa. Enjoy a day wandering through the town and enjoy speaking to some of the friendliest people in Zanzibar. There are plenty of resorts and spas in the area for travelers who need some down time.Stone Town was announced a historical UNESCO World Heritage site. 
Destination Guide
Zanzibar

Zanzibar

For many centuries, traders from Europe, India, the Orient and Arabia were lured to these shores. It was from here explorer David Livingstone set off on his last expedition into the heart of the continent. Today, as you walk along the winding streets of the old Stone Town, lined with whitewashed coral rag houses, you can see reminders of this rich history all around you. Visit the Palace museum, former residence of the Omani Sultans, and the cathedral that now stands on the site of the notorious slave market.
Destination Guide
Chitimba
Kande Beach
Chipata

Chipata

Formerly called Fort Jameson, Chipata is the capital of the Eastern Province of Zambia and is a popular pit stop before heading to Malawi. This commercial urban district is filled with outdoor markets, and boasts of a 4-star hotel, a golf course, and a mosque
South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa National Park

One of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries lies in South Luangwa National Park with all year round access to open game viewing, walking safaris, and night game drives. This park was founded in 1938 and became a wildlife sanctuary in 1972. 60 different species of mammal species and 400 different species of birds roam freely in the vast desert. Exotic vegetation and wildflowers adds discovery to this sanctuary.
Destination Guide
Ngorongoro

Ngorongoro

An ancient hole in northern Tanzania, Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa's best wildlife-viewing spots since it acts like a natural cage; the crater's depth makes for a difficult escape for some animals, but most have no need to leave, finding plenty of resources inside. For the traveler, it means not only awesome wildlife viewing, but incredible views from accommodations on the crater's rim. Descend to the crater floor in a four-wheel drive; and once there just cruise around slowly and take in the scene — on any given day see lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, Thomson's gazelle, zebra, and reedbuck. The small soda lake inside the crater is also the seasonal home of thousands of flamingos.
Destination Guide
Arusha

Arusha

Arusha is the safari capital of East Africa, a bustling, vibrant town with the streets filled with 4X4 game viewing vehicles criss-crossing the potholed roads. Maasai warriors in full regalia stroll the streets, mingling with tourists in crisp khaki, fresh off the plane from Europe or the United States.
Destination Guide
Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam in east Tanzania is located on an arm of the Indian Ocean. It is the country's largest city and former capital, chief seaport, and principal commercial, manufacturing, and educational centre. Rail links extend inland to Arusha in the north, to Lakes Tanganyika and Victoria, and to Zambia. Dar es Salaam's exports include coffee, sisal, cotton, and copper (from landlocked Zambia). Places of interest include Kariakoo market, the Botanical Gardens, National Central Library and the National Museum of Tanzania which has notable collections dealing with east African ethnography, archaeology, and history.
Destination Guide
Iringa

Iringa

This town in Tanzania overlooks the Ruaha River and borders the dry belt of central Tanzania. However the cool breeze of the Southern Highlands seeds its already abundant agriculture. With its beautiful scenery and game parks, Iringa is the perfect destination for travelers who are looking for both wild and tame.
Lusaka

Lusaka

The main reason to visit Lusaka is to change planes or begin a trip to Livingstone or one of the game parks. The capital and largest city, Lusaka is not particularly attractive and has few sights to see: Plan to spend no more than a day there. The central city is compact. Built for colonial administrators in the 1940s, today it is woefully inadequate to serve its present population. (Services and facilities can't keep up with demand—there are occasional water and electricity shortages—and unemployment and crime rates are increasing.)

Spend your time in Lusaka at Lumburma Market and the outdoor Cultural Center, where about a dozen artisans carve wooden souvenirs and sell them. If time permits, see the National Assembly building, drive through the university area, visit the Anglican cathedral (patterned after the one in Coventry, England), the State House and the Munda Wanga Botanic and Zoological Gardens (plants, birds and a few wild animals). 220 mi/350 km northeast of Livingstone.

Destination Guide
Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls

The town of Victoria Falls is a pleasant place, created for visitors. There are hiking routes and rental bicycles. There are also trinket shops, selling everything from cheap T-shirts to antique African musical instruments. Carvings of masks and animals are a tradition around the area (as is the bargaining required to purchase them for a reasonable price). The Victoria Falls Hotel, a short walk from the falls, still operates in full colonial splendor and should be seen even by those not staying there. Visit Crocodile Ranch and Craft Village - a fascinating glimpse into Zimbabwean culture. Visit Livingstone, just across the border in Zambia— more than just a tourist town and more character than Victoria Falls. Another appealing side trip is to Chobe National Park, in neighboring Botswana. Chobe is one of the finest game parks in the world.
