Since I love discussing all things travel related I’m looking to meet and have conversations with people that share the same passion. This month, I caught up with Musharaf Dhanji - Director of Karibu World (@karibuworldtz), a leading safari and travel specialist company that operates on the ground in Tanzania. *
Q. What are the current trends impacting the travel industry?
A. As a family business that has been in travel for over 50 years, I can tell you we are now witnessing a global phenomenon. The traveller is changing - the millennials are coming! This year (2019) the millennials will be 38 years old, many of them the decision makers in their family. We’re talking about a generation of kids that have been raised in the most digitally interactive environment in the history of civilization.
Q. What does luxury travel mean to the millenial?
A. Today, we see a lot of emphasis on the travel experience. Travellers want to feel an emotional connection with their destination, especially when it comes to Africa. Buzzwords like “off the beaten path” and “immersive.” are no longer just backpacker phrases. It’s no longer enough to meet or exceed standards, the expectations now are to create new experiences tailored to their needs.
Q. Why would the new luxury traveller consider Africa?
A. Why not? Africa and Tanzania in particular is considered a rare commodity and has the extravagant experiences luxury travellers crave in terms of a meaningful and interactive experience. If you read about Tanzania online you’ll often find authors mention their trip as life changing or emotional experience.
Q. Finally, where is your favourite holiday destination in Africa?
A. Personally, I like a bit of adventure, camping and swimming in lakes so my favourite destination is a camping holiday in Lushoto, Tanzania. It’s awe inspiring to see mother nature at work in her most undisturbed environment.

What an experience these past few weeks have been! From the worksite to the people and the group that I came with Id do it all again in a heartbeat. Words cannot describe what an honor it was to have the opportunity to give back to someone who did not have anything to give. To make a difference in someone’s life by building them a home from start to finish is an experience I hope one day everyone can encounter.

Sometimes your goals can be so big that they overwhelm you and you find yourself wondering if you're capable of realizing them. In these moments, it's important to think back to the times when you wanted the things you have right now. When they too seemed impossible, yet somehow you made it happen.
And if you still feel uncertain, try anyway and you may just surprise yourself💫
