ABA – Backpackers Safaris and Accommodation in Arusha has gave us a best memorable days during our visit to Arusha Tanzania, Although time were too short due to our safari plan but was very interesting…
This was the first time for I and My boyfriend to visit Africa and get to know Aba through friends, Trip Advisor and Google.
We booked our safari and given free Accommodation at Aba Hotels for the First night of our Safari!.
Below is the Interview from the Travel Agency Office in Arusha.
1. Tell us including other Backpackers Travelers a little bit about your trip. How many days and to what national parks?
We did a really short trip, for three days. Arrived to Aba Hotel From Kilimanjaro Airport at late Evening, Reception were given us a very nice room with satellite TV,Hot water,Free Internet, Telephone and wardrobes.
The room was big enough and was told that it may cost only $15 per person BB although we were given free.
Next day we picked my Mohamed the Speaking English professional Guide and we left from the Hotel after the early Breakfast, left with picnic to Tarangire National Parks.
it was a full day game drive in Tarangire where were able to experience Family of birds,Giants Animals and trees like Elephants in big groups,pythons in Silalei and many groups of Baboons.
2. What was your favorite park? Why?
Both parks were really beautiful for different reasons.Tarangire had giant Animals and trees like Elephants,Baobabs,Ostriches and Pythons my Boyfriends used to call them Zillar,i.e Snake zillar, Elephant Zillar and Tree Zillar, Bedzillar etc, Lake Manyara had amazing vegetation and the surrounding valley was stunning. To suddenly come out of the trees and see the lake with all the wildlife around it and the valley walls behind it was an amazing thing to see. Ngorongoro crater was just a crazy place to be! Looking around you and realising that you’re in what used to be a mountain bigger than Kili is pretty exhilirating. The wildlife in the crater was also more varied than Manyara and Tarangire The only drawback though, and the reason why Manyara just pipped it for me, is that because the crater is so flat you can see ALL the other safari vehicles racing around, and often you get into a little queue of them, which can make it feel like a bit of an amusement park. Still, both parks were fantastic and I’d recommend both of them to anyone thinking of going.
3. What was the most amazing experience on safari?
The most amazing experience was how cold it got on the rim of the crater where we camped!! Joking aside though I think seeing a cheetah stake out a warthog was pretty cool, as was getting up real close to a hyena protecting its young.
I saw every kind of animal imaginable, and our guide was full of information about them. Without him we hardly would have known what to look out for and where. The best moment was when he spotted four cheetahs in the distance that to the naked eye were no bigger than pin heads!
Our cook was great too – he put a huge effort into cooking our meals and making sure that everything was ok for us. We were just expecting some basic meals but he really cooked up a feast at every meal – we didn’t eat better our whole time away!!
4. Did you see any interesting animals?
Loads! They were all interesting – I’m from Sweden the only interesting animals we have here are usually served with chips and salad.
5. Any recommendations for other travelers?
Make sure you get a zoom for your camera, otherwise you’ll be constantly annoyed at how small things look through your lens! And also, if you book before like we did it is better,
6.Tell us about Accommodation in Arusha
