Trip Report North & South Tanzania: Arusha, N. Serengeti, Mahale, Katavi, Tarangire

Jump to last reply

My quandary: How to go to Mahale for 3 chimp visits as a solo traveler without breaking the bank.

The solution: One of Flycatcher’s several flying itineraries that utilize scheduled Air Excel flights. http://www.flycat.com/en/itineraries.html

Eben of Kiliwarriors /Eben Schoeman Safaris was enlisted as the liaison to book Flycatchers, a Swiss company that has been operating in Tanzania about a quarter century. I used Eben’s Tanzanian partners for Arusha and Tarangire. You can also book direct with Flycatchers. Since the price was the same and Eben knew them, I went through him.

The verdict: In Swiss German vernacular, “Wunderbar!”

QUOTE OF THE TRIP
It’s another Swiss German expression: “En Guete.” (En Gwetay) Literally it translates to, “Have a good.” It is always said before a meal and means, “Have a good meal,” even though the word meal is just implied. Sangeeta, who traveled with Flycatchers, also mentioned "En Guete."
