Blog - Safari

Our blogs are another way to find out more of the destinations and experiences you might want to consider when you're travelling.

This library of stories, articles and observations are written by our travellers, consultants, people we work with in destinations, and travel journalists.
Have a look at our 'Interviews' to meet a few of our travellers -- and if you're a Tribes traveller and want to either write a blog or take part in a 'Face to Face with ...' interview, we'd love to hear from you.
Enjoy!

My first night on a ‘posh’ safari

My last safari experience in Tanzania was 10 years ago, when I was that bit younger and a bit more gung ho! We stayed in dome tents in sleeping bags in public campsites, and loved the experience of hearing zebra munching grass outside as we slept (or at least tried to!).

Never in my ‘safari life’ have I found myself driving past a lion sighting and barely stopping for more than a few minutes - that’s how frequently we saw them!
