At INSPIRED JOURNEYS we believe in Africa. Not just the parts everyone knows, but especially what we like to call UNCONVENTIONAL AFRICA. The blurry spots on the tourism maps that were either never accessible or forgotten after troubled times. Like Virunga National Park in the Congo (DRC), or Dzanga Sangha National Park in Central African Republic (CAR). These are the places that still offer true authentic EXPERIENCES, and where as a traveler you can make a REAL IMPACT.

We ASPIRE TO INSPIRE our guests to experience something AUTHENTIC and EXCITING and whenever possible in a way that contributes to the COMMUNITIES and CONSERVATION of the areas they visit, by using service providers, hotels and lodges that reinvest their earnings in conservation and community support. Read more about this on our Be Inspired page.

We organize customized and personalized travel experiences from arrival in Africa to departure, including all transport, lodging and activities. We feel that adventure does not have to mean discomfort, we have the experience and know how to visit these areas in a comfortable way. Of course some activities are intrinsically tougher and rougher, making a return to the comfort of your lodge afterwards even better!

Have a browse around our website and drop us a line if you have any questions, we are looking forward to hearing from you, and to find out WHERE YOUR INSPIRATION WILL TAKE YOU!

A safari featuring the highlights of East Africa as well as some of its more elusive treasures

As of June 2017 a new flight schedule will open a connection between Congo/Rwanda and some of the Southern Tanzania National Parks, via the Serengeti. At Inspired Journeys we love all these places, so what would be more exciting than to offer a combination of all in one trip!

So grab your calendar and block a 2-3 week period and book the safari of a lifetime. Combine the gorillas and volcanoes of Virunga National Park, with the chimps of Rubondo Island, the Great Migration of the Serengeti, the Boabab studded landscape of Ruaha and the legendary rivers of Selous. Can it get more exciting than this?

Spring time offers great opportunities to visit the Serengeti and Ngorngoro

At Inspired Journeys we LOVE the green season in Tanzania, yes it is a bit muddy and vegetation can limit visibility, BUT areas otherwise “swamped” by tourists from July to Feb turn tranquil and void from March to May. Even the Ngongoro Crater, known for its lines of tourists can be almost empty on a good day in May and what is better it is full of flowers!

An added benefit is that prices drop (almost 50% in some cases) compared to high season, so otherwise unaffordable safaris become within budget range. Great camps to visit during this time are: The Highlands in Ngorngoro; Dunia Camp in central Serengeti and Namiri Camp in eastern Serengeti. Which can easily be combined into a week long safari.

Join the Rubondo Rangers in their efforts to Habituate the Chimpanzees

Rubondo Island Camp currently offers the rare and temporary opportunity to join the Rangers while they trek and habituate the Islands Chimpanzees.

You will be able to spend a night “fly camping” in the jungle as well as stay in the high end and very comfortable Rubondo Island Camp. The camp is currently offering a 3 nights for 2 deal, which is great value.

Rubondo is a perfect stop on your way between Serengeti and Virunga National Park, making it possible to combine some of the most impressive African highlights in one trip (Great Migration, Great Apes, Big 5 and the Nyiragongo Volcano)
