Welcome   

Better-World.dk is owned by Jan Kjær; a Danish journalist, travel consultant, photographer and development specialist. 

Before returning to Europe I lived in Africa for six years and have done journalistic work involving the continent for more than 20 years.  

Now in Denmark, my experience and expertise have led to communication work and consulting for A.O., the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and NGOs like MS/ActionAid Denmark, Danish Peoples Aid, Save the Children Denmark, IRCT and Danish Red Cross. 

As well as leading a communications team for EU- humanitarian operations in Tanzania, in 2015; carrying out capacity assessments of International Media Support for Danida in 2012. 

From June 2007 to November 2018, I served as the chairman of Globalnyt,, the Danish news site that focuses on developing countries. 

Prior to “Globalnyt”, between 2009-2016, I acted as chairman of The Nairobi Club, the Danish network group of media professionals with development countries as their scope. 

In 2010 my expertise as travel consultant gave me the opportunity of writing the leading Danish travel guidebook on Budapest and Hungary. 

Traversing the globe as a consultant has taught me the following languages: English, German, French, quite a lot of Swahili and of course Danish, my mother tongue.

Jan var guide på 14-dages tur til Kenya og Tanzania fra 30. september 2017. Tre nationalparker, vandring i Usambara-bjergene, strand og masser af besøg hos kenyanere og tanzaniere. Spørg om muligheder for at tage Jan med som guide

Det siger gæsterne!

”Family Farm er jo en prægtig oase inde midt i en rigtig afrikansk forstad. Turen på gå-ben ned til hovedvejen var jo en oplevelse til alle sanser.

Også Peters tur op ad Meru-bjerget gennem landsbyen var rigtig god og lærerig – ikke mindst for min datter som aldrig har været i Tanzania. Jeg selv fik genopfrisket den smule swahili jeg kan.Safarien levede fuldt ud op til vore forventninger, og Dismas, vores chauffør, var rigtig god. Vi fik dog ikke set en hanløve ,så vi må nok hellere sige: Tutaonana – vi ses!” Sådan lyder en tilbagemelding fra en dansk familie på tre.

“Glæder os til endnu en nat i Family Farm i Arusha, hvor vi efterhånden føler os næsten som hjemme. Tak for tippet om at bo her. Det har helt sikkert gjort vores tur endnu bedre,” skriver to yngre danske kvinder.

“Vi havde nogle fantastiske oplevelser i Tanzania og nød safariturene meget. Dietmass er en rigtig god chauffør og guide, men også et dejligt menneske. Vi vender gerne tilbage til Nice stay,” fortæller et dansk ægtepar.

“Tanzania og turen var heilt fantastisk bra ! Me var veldig fornøgde med opplegget, Family Farm og guide/sjåfør,” siger Tone fra Norge.

“Vi ankom til Family Farm en sen ettermiddag, og ble mottatt som gode venner! Fine rom med gode senger, vennlig vertsskap som ikke visste hva godt de kunne gjøre for oss – og ikke minst en fantastisk kokk, Bora. Vi bodde tre netter på Family Farm, seks voksne og to barn. Barna hadde plass til å leke og utfolde seg i trygge omgivelser, og vi voksne kunne nyte tilværelsen i fulle drag. Et bosted som dette, i spaseravstand til bykjernen og samtidig skjermet fra byens mas og støy, med utsyn til Mt. Meru – helt fantastisk! Dessuten var det fint for oss alle å kunne møte lokalbefolkning i omgivelsene, stikke ut til den lokale shop når vi trengte noe – og i tillegg oppleve å bli tatt vare på på beste måte. Jo, Family Farm anbefales varmt. Har dessuten lyst til å berette at vi brukte dem til vår reise rundt i Nord-Tanzania, både for å besøke venner og for å dra på safari. Og også det kan varmt anbefales – hyggelige sjåfører og gode game-spotters!!” Vennlig hilsen Sissel, Norge.

“Everything is perfect. Thank you for your advice and all your arrangement. Wish you a good New Year’s Eve party and Happy New Year. Greetings from Stonetown, Zanzibar.” Polsk par.

“On behalf of my husband and I would like to express our appreciation for the great service, schedule and activities of our tour….thanks to you again’. At the end, I can say that, our only regret was that our visit went to so fast, I wish that we had been able to spend more time in each place, particulary in Tanzania. We will be recommending to others the company, specially you.” Tyrkisk par.

“The trip to Mikumi and Uluguru Mountains was great; except the mosquitos 🙂 The hotel was clean, and the meals were delicious. We saw 8 different lions on our safari, and our guide was very helpful. The trekking was also great, we ate African food in the village. And our driver was very friendly. A Turkish couple.

“Thank you very much for everything. The trip was perfect. Really, i can‘t find even 1 minus. Big BRAVO”. Six Lithuanians.

“I’m safely back at home in Warsaw after wonderful holidays in Tanzania.
Thank you for all the arrangement you made. It was great and we experienced something really special in Tanzania that will remain in our memory for years.

If anybody of my friends, colleagues is going to visit Tanzania I will recommend to contact you. Once again, thank you.” Polish couple.

“Tanzania and the trip was amazingly good! We were very satisfied with the arrangement, Family Farm and guide / driver,” says Tone from Norway.

“On behalf of my husband and I would like to express our appreciation for the great service, schedule and activities of our tour….thanks to you again’.

“The trip was great. especially Serengeti and Tarangire. Tom and Dismas were very hospitable. Thank you for everything. Look forward to catching up with you again!!” An Indian in August.

“Family Farm is indeed a superb oasis in the middle of a real African suburb. The journey on foot down to the main road was an experience for all senses. Also Peter’s trip up Mount Meru through the villages was really good and rewarding – not least for my daughter who has never been in Tanzania. I even refreshed the little Swahili I know. The safari lived fully up to our expectations, and Dismas, our driver was really good. However, we did not see a male lion, so we’d better say Tutaonana – see you! ” feedback from a Danish family of three.

“We are looking forward to another night in Family Farm in Arusha where we almost feel like home. Thanks for the recommendation. For sure this has made our trip even better.” Two young Danish women.
