Authors of Guide Books to Tanzania have a hard time

We have just been informed by the Ngorongoro Conservation Area of the following change effective for anyone travelling to Ngorongoro or via from 1 July 2007:
Park fees increased from USD 30 to USD 50 per person per 24 hours
Crater fee: increased from USD 100 to USD 200 per entry per car
Transit fee : anytime passing via NCA will be USD 50 per person
Authors Jens Finke from Rough Guide, Mary Fitzpatrick from Lonely Planet and Philip Briggs from Bradt Guides must have a hard time to update their guide books but at the same time they can include Onsea House as recommended accomodation in Arusha :-)

First Arusha hotel on Google Maps via MapMyName

Twee Portugese studenten, João Ribeiro en Sérgio Veiga, die de opleiding “Computer Engineering & Telematica” volgen aan de Universiteit van Aveiro zijn sinds Earth Day (22 april) een ambitieus project gestart, genaamd MapMyName. Hun missie: het in kaart brengen (realtime) van alle internetters op deze wereld, middels een Google Maps mashup. Ondanks het feit dat dit een onmogelijke taak lijkt, beweren de 2 studenten dat het theoretisch mogelijk is binnen een maand!
Onsea House in Arusha is wellicht 1 van de eerste hotels of guesthouses ter wereld en de allereerste naam in Tanzania die geregistreerd is op de MapMyName site.

Via ons profiel als Hospitality/Travel adres, hopen we binnenkort onze eerste gasten op safari in Tanzania te mogen verwelkomen die ons via MapMyName ontdekt hebben.
Onsea House is via MapMyName zichtbaar op de Google DigitalGlobe satelliet kaart midden in het groen op Namasi Hill tussen het dicht bebouwde Arusha en Lake Duluti in.

On safari in Arusha with vintage Land Rover 88

The antique Onsea House branded Land Rover 88 which has been completely restaured since this week will be driven by our Chef-Manager Axel Janssens. Occasionally we will offer the possibility to our customers to join a nostalgic shopping trip to Arusha town centre or a safari to the nearby National Park. A must for every oldtimer freak.
