For many travelers the“Authentic African Experience” means going on a safari game drive, watching the great migration, maybe taking pictures with the Maasai and returning home. Other travelers may add visits to museums, archeological ruins and national monuments as well.
We are here to tell you that those sites are only the beginning. It is everyday life — rural, urban, modern, cultural, celebratory musical and culinary experiences – that peak the interest of many travelers.
WHY EXPLORE AUTHENTICALLY WITH A LOCAL?
As we always say: home is home, and who knows more exciting experiences than a local? Yes, we can make recommendations of where to go and what to do, but the experience is even better when you ask us to take you there and show you around. It’s our pride and joy to take you on a guided tour.
Your experience can include spending time with a new friend who tells great jokes, to having an out-of-this-world meal, to dancing the night away, and on and on. So how can you experience all of that and more?
Here are three ways to get started:
1. PLAN YOUR TRIP AROUND EVENTS AND FESTIVITIES
With a festival in town bringing locals out to celebrate, we promise you will connect with locals and fellow travelers, get immersed in local culture, dance your nights away, explore beautiful beaches, find yourself in glorious settings, and even journey back in time. The next big event in Tanzania is the Zanzibar International Film Festival in July 2017.
2. PLAN A HOMESTAY
With a homestay, you can more easily plan an extended vacation, bring your work with you and meet other creative minds in the bustling port city of Dar es Salaam. By staying in a more local setting, you will have the freedom to explore authentically and even have the opportunity to share your skills with locals. Ask how?
