THE TANZANIAN DIARY….

Day 20: Early start this morning, we departed at 4.30am en route back to Kigale where we said goodbye to some of the crew who had only joined us for the Gorilla Trek. We then had a full day driving and crossed the border and by late afternoon we were in Tanzania. Overnight was spent in Sayari Guest House. We have no idea where we got the energy from but even after such an early start, the crew were up for a few drinks and then someone started us off with Karaoke… Singing The Gambler. Many others were keen to take the microphone after that…

Overland Safari 1 – departs from Kenya

We initially chose Absolute Africa because this route. They were the only truck that drove through below Lake Victoria through Tanzania.

Our first Overland Safari was a 32 day tour through Eastern Africa. We travelled from Kenya through to Uganda, onto Rwanda and finished with a week in Tanzania – our last stop being the beautiful Zanzibar. We averaged about a week in each country and although there were some long drive days, our itinerary was jam packed with game drives, nature walks, adrenaline junkie activities, relaxation and many funny moments with our fellow travellers.
