After the Will Smith booking, BBC cast discovers Onsea House in Arusha

The Arusha Times reported this week on the frontpage on the visit of highly rated actors, performing under the auspices of the BBC to spearhead the success of a Sitcom recorderd in Arusha, to be broadcast worldwide under the name of “Taking the Flak“.

The crew and what they intend to do in Arusha became talk of town only after Will Smith, the American actor who was recently described by Newsweek as the most powerfull actor on the planet. He was in Tanzania as UNICEF goodwill ambassador, visited some health projects and made a booking at the Onsea House restaurant!

After Will Smith, the cast of BBC now has discovered Onsea House. This weekend, we had several seperate room bookings from the BBC, including “Smack the Pony” star Doon Mackichan. Rumours have spread that Onsea House in Arusha is a nice and intimate place to relax, eat and overnight.

Safari approved by Carmen Roberts, BBC World News’ Fast Track reporter

What a co-incidence: just after posting the news on female Wildlife presenters, starring Charlotte Uhlenbroek, we got a request from Carmen Roberts, also from the BBC, to organize a safari in Tanzania, after her trip in Kenya.

We put together a last-minute 3 day safari to Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire, in co-operation with one of our partner tour operators, taking into account the budget indications.

After returning from an “excellent safari”, enjoying a sundowner at the the terrace of Onsea House in Arusha, Carmen told us she is a journalist for Fast:Track, a travel programme on BBC World News for the business and leisure traveller. She was in Kenya to shoot a snake safari. 

To watch Carmen Robert’s snake safari, treat yourself soon on Fast:Track.
Do not hesitate to contact info@onseahouse.com for any safari enquiry and/or plans to stay at Onsea House.
