6 Ideas to Embark on a Life Changing Journey

Witness the Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara – Kenya

It’s a once in a lifetime experience that you will be very lucky to witness live. This animal migration happens every year; this is when the weather gets dry in Masai Mara in Kenya, which is time for the animals to seek water & grass. They cross in thousands in the direction of the Serengeti in Tanzania (it’s more impressive to see it in Kenya), so make sure to check the migration calendar before you proceed with all the bookings. If you are in for a true African experience, one that will teach you a lot about simplicity, get ready for some mingling with Masai people (ethnic group of semi-nomadic people inhabiting southern Kenya and northern Tanzania) famous for maintaining their culture, customs and traditions & known by being dressed in special made red blankets sold across the country.

This journey will be so incomplete if you do not hike the upper Amazon basin to enjoy its flora and fauna. Flight tickets are expensive, however accommodation, food and everything else is very cheap.

Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania

It’s basically a trek that goes on on several days, it doesn’t require any technical skills, however it requires an average level of fitness, strong legs, endurance and perseverance. Nothing beats the feeling of reaching the top of a mountain, believe me once you reach the peak your life will never be the same again. “Those who never made it, will never understand” ~ Hussein Fakih – One of our group of summiteers.

Train hard to join a Marathon, Cycling Race, Duathlon or a Triathlon

There is nothing in this world that beats the feeling of achieving something big.

The good thing is that you don’t have to travel abroad as there are so many now happening in Egypt and the prizes are big, worth the time and effort required to get prepared for the challenge.
