Kilimanjaro

Tanzanian Walking Safari

 

 

A combined driving and walking safari in Tanzania!

Back by popular demand: we have created 2 new safari combinations where a regular safari in the Lake Manyara park and the NgoroNgoro Crater (and Serengeti for the longer variation) will be combined with a walking safari through the NgoroNgoro highland, including a climb of the active Lengai volcano as well as a visit to Lake natron.

 

You can choose for a shorter variation or a longer variation that also includes the Serengeti. For the walking part you will be accompanied by local Maasai guides and the luggage will be transported by donkeys. You might not see the Big Five here, but you will meet plenty of gazelle, wildebeest, zebra and sometimes even cheetahs and other predators. An incredible experience and different from the other safaris.
