Memorable & personalized luxury holidays.
Tanzania, a country four times bigger than France, is home to the Serengeti plains, eight times the size of Masai Mara. Not only does it have a phenomenal diversity of wildlife and eco-systems, it is also the gateway to Africa’s highest peak Kilimanjaro and Africa’s only live volcano the Ol Doinyo Lengai. It doesn’t get more majestic than this.
Lake Manyara, North Tanzania – Ringed by volcanic peaks, dotted with searing hot springs, the Manyara region is a haven for bird lovers. Over 400 species have been sighted here. The wildlife ranges from Baboons, tree climbing Lions, Dik-Diks, Banded Mongoose to curious Klipspringers.
Lake Natron, North Tanzania – The lake that turns animals to stone? Not quite, but its salty waters mixed with natrocarbonatites from the nearby Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano calcifies most animals. However, it is the largest breeding ground in Africa for lesser Flamingos and the place for phantasmagorical photo opps.
Katavi National Park, West Tanzania – Off the tourist map, you won’t be going bumper to bumper with other 4x4s here. The Katavi Plains have knee high golden grass and thousands of Zebra, Topi, Impala, Hartebeest, Giraffe and Defassa Waterbucks. Huge Buffalo herds and prides of Lions ensure frequent predator-prey contests.
Mount Kilimanjaro Trek – It’s one for the books. A geographical conundrum, this snow topped, free standing mountain close to the equator, is the poster child of the African enigma. You will pass through rain forests, heather moors, lava formations, and glaciers. 5 different climatic zones frame the way to reach the ‘Roof of Africa’. It’s a do-able journey but only if you take it ‘pole-pole’ (Swahili for slowly)!
Meet the Maasai, Serengeti National Park – Meet the tall, proud, warrior race with their iconic red robes and spears. Learn their songs, their rituals and their age old wisdom. Go for a bush walk, feast on the local food and stay overnight in a village, with lions and other animals just outside the thorny fence! Buy beautiful Maasai beadwork and come home with a new cultural perspective.
First humans, Olduvai Gorge, Ngorongoro – Just 35 minutes from Ngorongoro is a 48 km ravine where the legendary Louis and Mary Leakey excavated evidence of the evolution of mankind. The different layers helped scientists trace the development of the human race from primitive tree dwellers to tool making hunters, millions of years ago. Apart from the museum, guided treks across the valley make this a one-of-its-kind anthropological experience.
The world's largest unbroken caldera complete with resident prides of tree climbing lions, flamingo filled lakes and ancient elephants.
