Routes and restaurants to enjoy your trip more than ever

Maasai Mara, area where the main Maasai tribes live.

Amboseli, Kenya

We never learn. Whenever we use Lonelyplanet to make a decision about our trip we regret it. We’re in Kenya, on our last safari, and we’ve entrusted the safeguarding of our asses to Safe & Ride, one of the recommended companies by the most famous and most sold tourist guides in the world. All things considered, we were lucky because at least this is a real company. The rest of the ones mentioned by Lonelyplanet ended up being nothing more than intermediaries between operators and tourists with the aim of raising prices and making sure the jeeps are packed.

Elephants, Serengeti, Tanzania

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania:

One of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. It is like an illusion with 600 metres walls forming a natural fence in which thousands of animals live as if it were a dream. It is the main reason to go there. We could also see there a black rhinoceros, not usual at all.

Etosha Park, Namibia

Kruger Park, South Africa:

It is the easiest to visit but the least authentic. It is a “do it yourself” safari, driving through set tracks but you cannot even open the windows. At night, you will sleep in modest bungalows with the grill on the backyard as if they were semidetached houses. It is easy to see all kinds of animals except for lions and cheetahs. There are not many. Before going photo-hunting, you can look at he camp map where you can see where the animals where seen the day before, but many times it’s the same.

Amboseli, Kenya

Buffalos:
Buffalo, Masai Mara, Kenya
Bulls with a wig. In spite of the western movies, when they are with their herd, they are not violent at all, even though they look like beasts. However, when they are on their own and they get in trouble, they run away devastating everything on their way. Actually, with the elephants, they are the animals that cause more accidents with humans. When they attack they pretend to be still, getting closer to the enemy so stealthily, that they seem to be walking with socks on.

Lions, Amboseli, Kenya

Lions:
Lion, Serengeti, Tanzania
There is no doubt that they are the kings of the savannah. All day laying down, doing nothing while their females go hunting. And if that wasn’t enough, when he feels the “need of company” and the female is not into it, because she already has a litter from another king, he eats her cubs to be able to impregnate her with his genes. However, not all of them live like kings. When a male has to leave a group to form his own, since they are not good hunters, he might die of starvation. What an end for a sovereign!
