The FREEDOM to TRAVEL in AFRICA | S02/E03
Just a stone’s throw from Serekunda, there are other must-see sights that can be done in a couple of hours. The Abuko Nature Reserve is a rectangle of unspoiled nature a few kilometers from the city – or rather surrounded – where you can see monkeys, hyenas, crocodiles and the fearsome Green Bambas, one of the most venomous snake species in the world. The visit usually ends at Lamin Lodge, a stilt house converted into a restaurant in the middle of the mangroves. From here you can take boat excursions that allow you to explore the enormous mangrove forests that cover this area of the mouth of the Gambia. Another classic is to go to Tanji Beach at sunset, just when the fishing boats begin to return to the coast loaded with the catch of the day. The whole area is buzzing with activity.

For example, malaria is endemic and there are also cases of cholera, diphtheria and dengue fever. On the other hand, he indicates that “Quality medical services are scarce. For any serious problem, it is advisable to leave the country. Traveling with good insurance in Tanzania is, of course, essential.
In the big cities it is true that you have to be careful, especially at night and in isolated areas. However, you can walk through the center of places like Arusha and Dar es Salaam without feeling insecure. As in any place, try not to be ostentatious and be aware of your valuables. There are people who will approach you to sell you souvenirs, tours or guide you, perhaps in some cases too insistently. However, with a little right-handedness, nothing is bound to go wrong.

Kenya SafarisInmense, rich and ethnic. Kenya is one of the favorite destinations for safari lovers. And it is easy to explain it, imagine an infinite landscape of wild savannah, its animal nature sometimes hidden by the great shadow of Kilimanjaro; keep imagining a world where pink flamingos float across its lakes, that place that shelters endangered species, proud peoples who never tire of telling their ancestral stories and fight against the modern world not to lose their authenticity Do you want to keep imagining? Better come to Kenya.
