Eat and Enjoy nature in Namibia

Eat in Nambia

Eat in Namibia 2

A close friend of mine, Shauntay White recently travelled to Namibia.  Shauntay was nice enough to share one of her most special places she used to eat at in Namibia, ” it is a restaurant at the Okapuka Game Drive.  At the Drive, you can eat at a restaurant that overlooks the grounds.  It is not unusual to see animals out in the fields carelessly eating while you do the same. It is a very relaxing environment where you can truly appreciate nature and all of its wonders while enjoying a meal of your own.”

Where can you learn to make coffee, and swim in a remote oasis?!

coffee making

Moshi, Tanzania!!  I have experienced both of these tours, and I’d be lying to you if I had a favorite.  They were both unique and amazing experiences in their own way.

Coffee tour:  You pick the berries, crush, peel, and roast them.  Not only are you educated on the coffee making process and history, but you can experience actually MAKING THE COFFEE.  (Rather than just being lectured on the process.)  At the end you are offered some of the fresh home grown coffee.  (It is delicious!)

**Bonus: After you’ve made the coffee there’s an option to hike down to a beautiful waterfall, I’d highly suggest it!!

Maji moto

Maji Moto: A natural hot spring amongst the Tanzanian desert.  The crystal clear, warm water, and beautiful trees surrounding this oasis is appealing in itself.

**Bonus: If you are not afraid of heights, you can climb up some of these trees and jump in!!

How can you experience these excursions?

There are A LOT of touring companies in Moshi, Tanzania.  Below I’ve listed the two companies I used for most of my excursions, and the third was referred by a friend.  (Both were VERY accommodating, I have nothing but excellent reviews!!!  If you have any further questions feel free to ask!!  Side note: I also hiked Mt. Meru, and Mt. Kilimanjaro while I was in Tanzania with these companies.)

Where can you climb, and see a giraffe?!

Tanzania

Mt. Meru, Tanzania, Africa.  Experience hiking a beautiful mountain filled with lush plant life and various animals!

Side note:  I’ve had the opportunity to climb both sister mountains Mt. Meru, and Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.  They both offered different scenery, and challenges, while also both being unique and beautiful in their own way.  One thing to note is that Mt. Meru was LESS CROWDED, and the greenery was more present in comparison to Mt. Kilimanjaro.  Also, I saw a ton of different animals, one being a giraffe.  On my last day of hiking Mt. Meru a giraffe decided to cross the hiking path about 50 feet in front of my group!
