My Travel Recommendations

I'd love to inspire you with my travel recommendations. From authentic safari camps in the heart of the iconic Masai Mara to private, family-friendly Kenya safaris, here are my favourites.


  • Romantic Kenya & Tanzania

    Honeymoon Mara, Crater & North Serengeti

    Location: Kenya - Nairobi, Kenya - Masai Mara, Tanzania - Serengeti, Tanzania - Ngorongoro Crater

    "A safari jam packed with unique experiences, from hot air balloon rides to bush meals and romantic candle lit evenings. This blend of adventure, luxury and great locations is perfect in our opinion, tailor made for romantics!"

  • Tanzania's Private 4x4 Northern Circuit

    Tanzania's Private 4x4 Northern Circuit

    Location: Tanzania - Serengeti, Tanzania - Lake Manyara, Tanzania - Arusha, Tanzania - Ngorongoro Crater

    "A great value standard tour that covers the absolute must-see areas of the northern circuit in Tanzania. Time your safari just right and you will find yourself in the midst of the wildebeest migration on the Serengeti plains."

  • Mkombe's House Lamai

    Mkombe's House Lamai

    Location: Tanzania - Serengeti

    "The ultimate choice for families or friends travelling together. Mkombe’s is great for year round resident wildlife and naturally one of our first picks for peak migration season. Plan each day as you wish and at leisure, set your own pace – a place in Africa where one can relax and forget the hustle and bustle of normal daily life. As far as locations go in the Serengeti – this is a secret gem."

  • Family Kenya's Ol Donyo & Masai Mara

    Family Kenya's Bush Houses

    Location: Kenya - Tsavo, Kenya - Nairobi, Kenya - Chyulu Hills, Kenya - Amboseli National Park

    "A private safari that seamlessly blends wildlife, culture and luxury to form the ideal holiday. The experience which is so personalised leaves you feeling as if you tasted the real Africa and that is what makes this tour so unique"

  • Sirikoi


    Location: Kenya - Mount Kenya

    "Sirikoi is a little paradise, a rare lodge that works perfectly for family’s travelling together or honeymoon couples. The wildlife here is exceptional as are the staff, managers and guides. Book a stay of 3 nights or more, this is going to be one of your safari highlights!"

Africa Safari Expert

Africa is undoubtedly the most magnetic place to visit - the question will always be: when will I return?

Our family just got back from Tanzania and thanks to Lauren Johansson of Go2Africa we had the most incredible experience. Lauren was very knowledgable and put together an outstanding itinerary for us. She arranged for local tour operator Tanzania DMC to take us on tours of Tarangire National Park; Lake Manyara; Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

Lauren also picked the most beautiful locations for us to stay at - Maramboi Tented Lodge in Tarangire; Kati Kati Tented Camp in the Serengeti; and the Serena Hotel in Ngorongoro. Best of all was the African Amini Maasai Lodge on Mombella Rd, near Moshi. We are very grateful to her for making such great arrangements for us. Lauren made sure that everything when smoothly, and all we had left to do was enjoy our trip. You can really trust her recommendations, you won't be disappointed.

Lauren also demonstrated superb professionalism - when we wanted to change one of the activities at the very last minute, she was flexible and incredibly responsive. She will respond to your emails very promptly. We highly recommend using Go2Africa and Lauren Johansson as tour agents.
