- ENGLISH VERSION AT THE BOTTOM -


In un mondo nel quale una borsa può costare più di un viaggio a/r negli Stati Uniti, con tanto di hotel e colazione inclusa, viaggiare ed andare in vacanza sono diventate due cose diverse. Così come lo sono diventati, sempre di più, il viaggiatore ed il turista. Li distingui subito, già all'aeroporto: il primo, per far fronte ad un ritardo o ad un inconveniente, tira fuori un libro ed inizia a leggere, o assume comunque un atteggiamento rilassato; il secondo, normalmente, ne approfitta per andare in escandescenza e dare sfogo a tutta l'aggressività repressa che possiede.
Questa distinzione l'ho imparata solo nell'ultimo periodo della mia vita, essendo sempre stata, purtroppo, una fiera rappresentante della seconda categoria, sempre pronta a lamentarsi. Basti pensare che poco tempo fa, dopo aver scientemente deciso, una volta al gate, di rinunciare al volo (in forte ritardo) perché avrei perso la successiva connessione a Francoforte, sono riuscita a farmi rimborsare l'intero ammontare dei voli, ottenere 5000 miglia a titolo di scuse da parte del vettore – anche se non era colpa della compagnia - e andarmene a casa.
Comunque, cercando di rompere sempre meno ed adattarmi sempre di più, durante le ultime vacanze di Natale sono partita per la Tanzania: 6 giorni, 1 fuoristrada con problemi al motore, tanti pranzi al sacco chiusi in macchina, un po' di tende per dormire, zanzare e, fortunatamente, i tanto rinomati Big Five (animali della Savana). E' stata un'esperienza bellissima ma consiglio di stare almeno 10 giorni ed eventualmente programmare qualche giorno aggiuntivo di relax a Zanzibar o altrove.
Arrivati al Kilimanjaro dopo due giorni di viaggio, siamo saliti su quella che sarebbe stata la nostra casa per i successivi giorni: il fuoristrada color senape.

Partiti immediatamente alla volta di Arusha, scopriamo che il nostro hotel ha fatto overbooking. Poco male, ci trasferiscono in un albergo di categoria superiore nel quale passiamo la prima notte. Una volta svegli, ci mettiamo subito in strada per andare al cratere di Ngorongoro, un posto magnifico, con un ecosistema unico al mondo. Sembra di essere veramente in una dimensione parallela, dove regna una pace fantastica. Già il primo giorno riusciamo a vedere quasi tutti i big five.
La cosa positiva di Ngorongoro è il clima: essendo ad altitudini elevate fa molto fresco.
Dopo Ngorongoro ci dirigiamo verso il fantastico Serengeti, dove abbiamo avuto la fortuna di fare anche un volo in mongolfiera.
Trovarsi a dormire in tenda nel bel mezzo della grande migrazione è qualcosa di surreale, che consiglio a chiunque. Molti campi tendati cambiano posizione ogni pochi mesi in maniera tale da seguire lo spostamento degli animali.
Dopo il Serengeti è stata la volta di Lake Manyara, dove ci siamo fermati solamente una notte, dopo una giornata intera di macchina.
Ultima tappa: Tarangire, dove abbiamo dormito su delle stanze costruite su alberi di Baobab!
Ex post consiglierei quindi di organizzare il giro come segue, per evitare inutili giri in auto: Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Mayara e… un po' di giorni di relax a Zanzibar!
Se poi potete permettervi di fare i vari spostamenti in volo…. Ancora meglio!

In a world in which a bag can cost more than a trip in the United States, complete with hotel and breakfast included, travel and go on vacation have become two different things. The same for the traveler and the tourist. You can distinguish them right away, already at the airport: the first, dealing with a delay or at a disadvantage, he pulls out a book and start reading, or a relaxed attitude; the second one, normally get very aggressive!
I learned only in the last period of my life I am always been, unfortunately, a proud representative of the second category, always ready to complain.
However, trying to break less and less and fit more and more, during the last Christmas holidays I went to Tanzania: 6 days, 1 SUVs with engine problems, many packed lunches closed raptors, some tents to sleep and tons of mosquitoes.
It 'was a wonderful experience but I would recommend to stay at least 10 days and possibly schedule some extra days to relax in Zanzibar or elsewhere.
Arrived at Kilimanjaro after two days of travel, we got on what would be our home for the next few days: the off-road mustard.
Parties immediately at a time of Arusha, we discovered that our hotel has overbooked. Never mind, we move to a higher category hotel where we spend the first night. Once awake, we start immediately in the street to go to the Ngorongoro Crater, a magnificent place, with a unique ecosystem. It seems to be really in a parallel dimension, where reigns a great peace. Already the first day our guide shows us, by far, a black rihno.
The good thing about Ngorongoro is the climate: being at high altitudes is very cool.
After Ngorongoro we head towards the great Serengeti, where we were lucky enough to make even a balloon flight.
Be sleeping in a tent in the middle of the great migration is something surreal, which I recommend to anyone. Many tented fields change position every few months so as to follow the movement of the animals.
After the Serengeti was the turn of Lake Manyara, where we stopped only one night, after a full day's drive. Beautiful ... but I would recommend to visit it before the Serengeti to not get a minimum disappointed!
Last stop: Tarangire, where we slept on the rooms built on Baobab trees!
Ex post then I recommend to arrange the tour as follows, to avoid unnecessary laps in the car: Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Mayara ... and a bit 'of relaxing days in Zanzibar!
If you can afford to do various movements in the air .... Even better!
