Hotels We Love: Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge

•••
Have you ever been to Heaven on Earth? I have: Well, actually this is of course a much more tangible place than Heaven. This is the Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge in northern Tanzania. After trying and failing to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro last June my dad and I treated ourselves to a luxurious getaway close to Ngorongoro Crater nature reserve and Serengeti Na[...]

Experience Zanzibar like a Local with Red Monkey Lodge

Located just north of the Serengeti National Park it lies close to the border of Kenya and offers its guests a unique experi[...]

The Rock Restaurant

•••
Ladies, this post is not going to be about Rock'n'Roll. There's Rock bars, Rock restaurants, Rock Hotels, Rock Museums and a boat that rocked. But have you ever heard of a restaurant on a rock? Well, I at least know of one. The Rock Restaurant was built on a tiny rock in the ocean in Zanzibar, Tanzania. This lovely place is situated near the shore of the Mic[...]
