Itinerary

Visit Tanzania's lively Arusha, under the watchful eye of Mt Meru. Lie by the pool and adjust to 'Africa time'.
Cycle through the Monduli Mountains and see the black cotton earth rolling by. Weave through Maasai villages and camp at Snake Park.
Watch for giraffes, ostrich and gazelles on a ride across rambling Masai plains towards the Great Rift Valley. Camp overnight at the edge of Mto Wa Mbu.
Saddle up early and head for the colourful playground of Lake Manyara, teeming with pink flamingos, zebras and wildebeest. Cycle through a dense banana plantation, meet friendly locals in a Maasai village and perhaps climb the Rift Valley escarpment for breathtaking views. At night, fall asleep to the night sounds of monkeys and baboons.
Descend to floor of the Ngorongoro Crater to see lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and maybe even a leopard. Camp on the crater's rim.
Marvel at the ancient Olduvai Gorge where the remains of some of man's earliest ancestors have been found. Try to spot the Big Five on safari in the Serengeti.
See bright-orange clad Songo tribesmen tending their herds and enjoy a thrilling descent to Lake Natron. Camp by the lake, spot birdlife and perhaps cool off in a nearby waterfall.
See the foothills and open plains roll by on the way back to Arusha. Pick up some souvenirs or relax poolside while reliving stories from this amazing African adventure.
