Activities

Safaris to the National Parks

Visitors to Tanzania’s National Parks are rewarded with scenes of extraordinary wilderness. In the Serengeti, observe the daily life and death cycle where lions and cheetahs stalk enormous herds of wildebeest and buffalo. In Tarangire National Park, a spectacular panoramic is presented as herds of huge elephants walk past enormous Baobab trees.


Mountain climbing – Kilimanjaro (5895 m)

Tackling the highest mountain in Africa is a once in a life time adventure. Choose the trail that suits you best; each route has different characteristics and features. We recommend the Rongai or Lemosho Routes – these are slightly more adventurous trails with incredible scenery and unspoiled wilderness.


Mountain climbing – Mt. Meru (4566 m)

Mt Meru is one of Africa's most beautiful, dormant volcanic cones. Standing at 4566 m, it is the second highest mountain in Tanzania and also the fifth highest mountain in Africa. The rewarding climb to the summit takes you through grassland and lush forest, where you’re likely to spot wildlife, and onto the knife-edge crater rim. Stunning sights into the crater, and breathtaking views across to the majestic Kilimanjaro make this an incredible climbing experience! The entire trek, with accommodation in huts, takes 3 to 4 days and is an excellent way to acclimatize before taking on its big brother, Kilimanjaro!


Bushwalks in the National Parks

Bush walking in Tanzania’s National Parks is a great way to get up close and personal with the stunning wilderness that surrounds you. An example Bushwalk in Arusha National Park: The road from the Ngongongare Gate leads through the densely wooded forests, home to the beautiful black and white Colobus monkey, which surround the lower slopes of Mt Meru to the Momella Gate. At the Momella Gate you will meet an armed ranger who will accompany you on the tour. The path winds its way past fascinating scenery whose habitat encompasses savannah, montane rainforest and alpine moorland. Along the way, if one is quiet and looking, numerous wildlife observations are possible. From a safe distance, buffalo herds can be seen and it is also possible to get quite close to some of the many giraffes (Tanzania’s national emblem). On the way back down to the Momella Gate a slight detour is possible to see the Tulusia Waterfalls.
