Marion: “I was born in the Netherlands in 1981. Since 2006 I have made several trips to Tanzania to do voluntary work and research. Because I fell in love with this country and its people, I decided to go to Tanzania for good in 2010. During that time I have been in safari a lot. The beautiful landscapes and the variety of animals in the national parks of Tanzania amaze me every time. I love driving through the endless plains of the Serengeti NP and seeing the animals up close. I think everyone should see the amazing nature of Tanzania. Besides my work as a researcher in the local hospital, I love to organize trips for tourists so that they have an unforgettable experience in Tanzania. I also think the environment and fair management is important so that tourists can continue to visit the national parks in the future.”
Martha: “I’m a Tanzanian female journalist who was born in the Northern part of Tanzania. I have more than ten years experience writing on environmental issues, human rights as well as other cross-cutting issues. Apart from my journalism career, I’m also interested in wildlife issues which are also part and parcel of environmental issues. I obtained my diploma in journalism from Arusha School of Journalism and later on I pursued my degree in law from Moshi Cooperative University. In Caracal Safaris, I’m th logistics manager and responsible for bookings, payments, and other activities related to tourist travel. I also make arrangements on the cars to be used on travel, drivers, lodges/hotels, local flights, balloon safaris, among other things. Moreover, I’m also responsible in case of emergencies such as car breakdowns, injuries during the travel, changes of time table, etc. Welcome to Tanzania, the Home of Kilimanjaro and Serengeti. Welcome Caracal Tours & Safaris Tanzania for Memorable Safaris!”
The caracal is one of the unique little cats on the savanna. It eats birds, but also small mammals. This cat has long hind legs that help it leap in the air to catch birds as they take off from the ground and large mobile ears so it can hear prey in the grass. Finding the caracal in the savanna is very difficult, however, we will do our best to try to show you a caracal.
