Opportunities for hiking in Tanzania are endless and exhilarating. If you have read our introduction to Safaris and our About Us pages, you will have a good impression of the diversity of Tanzania and our passion in sharing it with you.
Trekking opportunities are best divided into 2 categories:
- MOUNTAIN HIKING OPPORTUNITIES:
These include Kilimanjaro, ‘The Rooftop of Africa,’ Mt. Meru and Ol Doinyo Lengai. All 3 are famous volcanoes within Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit. Ol Doinyo Lengai however is the only active volcano. All 3 provide exhilarating contrasts in landscape and tell their own story about their surrounding topography, formed millions of years ago. Kilimanjaro has been attracting climbers and adventurers alike since the turn of the last century.
- NATURE WALKS & HIKING:
These include itineraries to unique areas that thrive in diverse flora and fauna and are largely uninterrupted by vehicles. Forest covered mountains alive with primates, colourful birds, butterflies and shy woodland antelope such as Udzungwa Mountains, are in complete contrast to the flatlands of Sadaani (where the bush meets the beach where elephants and lions leave footprints in the sand). Other exciting opportunities include trekking to see Chimpanzee in the Mahale Mountains or Gombe Stream.
