Chemka / Kikuletwa Hot spring Day Tour

This is probably the best place to swim in Moshi. Emanating from within the earth, the geo-thermally warmed water is constantly renewed and is therefore very fresh and clear and clean. It’s a very pleasant place to spend a couple of hours with family and friends, or to relax before or after a climb or safari. Many of our clients have had at least 5 hours for this excursion after some tremendous tiresome days in the wilderness and they all enjoyed it.

The Chemka / Kikuletwa Hot Spring is an oasis in the hinterland of the Kilimanjaro region, 1-2 hours drive from Moshi town. At these restful underground springs with the crystal-clear water, you can enjoy the perfect breather after a strenuous Kilimanjaro climb or adventurous wilderness safari. But also for day trippers, they are an ideal destination for a total peaceful mind rest. For both old and young, the Chemka Hot Springs invite you to linger, swim and explore its amazing natural waters. The pond is very deep, in some places up to 10 meters, but the water is so clear that you can see the bottom well all the time. On the shore under lush trees you can camp, enjoy your snacks or soak up the sun while enjoying this wonderful weather.

Maasai Cultural Experience Day Tour

The culture is a distinctive character of this fascinating ancestry group of noble people (Maasai) with beautiful and interesting stories every visitor would never want to miss.

Unlike many other tribes in Tanzania, the Maasai are semi-nomadic pastoralists inhabiting northern Tanzania. They live by herding cattle and goats and still exist on a diet of milk, blood, and meat. Nowadays, it is becoming very common in places for the Maasai to supplement their diet with grain.

The Maasai Cultural Villages are a good stop for anyone wanting to spend a day/ night in an authentically constructed Maasai boma or learn about Maasai traditions. You should know that the Maasai have not fared well in modern Africa. They still make their homes in circular enclosures protected by thorny makeshift fences keeping their cattle at the center of the ‘BOMA’ (home).

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. However, as one of the world’s most astonishing and renowned natural wonders, the Ngorongoro Crater does get busy, and at times very busy. Due to the crowds we recommend a two-night stay only here, then moving on to the Serengeti for a quieter, more private safari experience.

Day 1: Arusha/Moshi – Ngorongoro

At 0600 hrs in the morning, be ready for a pick up from your hotel or from your stay in Arusha town, your driver guide will collect your picnic lunches, drive 190 km on tarmac road to Ngorongoro Conservation entry gate. From the gate, drive to the Crater Rim and spend few minutes for awesome view of the Crater from the top, descend into the crater floor for a day game drives. Ngorongoro Crater is one the largest intact caldera in the world and one of the most spectacular sights in the whole of Africa.

All the BIG FIVE Rhino, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo and Elephant live in this wonderful caldera, others are Zebra, Hippo, Wildebeest, Hyena and more… Birds includes flamingos on the Soda lake, Geese, Storks, Vultures and more other bird families.

Your picnic lunch will be served in the Crater picnic site at Ngoitokok swamp, a Hippo pool, after lunch proceeds with afternoon game viewing. At 1500 hrs ascend the Crater and drive back to Arusha.

Lake Manyara National Park

An isolated lake subject to intense evaporation during the dry season, Lake Manyara is a slightly salty lake that is home to hippopotamus, flamingoes, and a large variety of aquatic life. Despite its salt content, it is safe for animals to drink and is a popular watering hole for the park’s animal population. During the wet season, Lake Manyara swells to a sizable body of water perfect for guided canoe safaris. During the dry season, it can shrink to such a small size that it is almost possible to walk across it.

When water is present, it is possible to see klipspringer, rock hyrax, and porcupines by the lake’s edge, and a wide variety of birds including Ruppel’s Griffon, Verreaux’s Eagle, the Augur Buzzard, the Peregrine Falcon, and an abundance of flamingoes call the lake home during the year.

Day Tour: Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park

In the early morning, you will be picked from your hotel in Arusha and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. The park embraces the northwest bank and part of the alkaline Lake Manyara which itself rests in the Great Rift Valley. The park is best known for its flamingos, pelicans and cormorants but it is also the home for a hundred-other migratory and none-migratory bird species; it is therefore a paradise for ornithologists. Next to a great variety of birds, the “Big Game” can also be seen. With a bit of luck, you might see elephants in the wooded regions and with even more fortune the tree-climbing lions. Undeniably, it was thought for a long time that the Lake Manyara National Park is the only place where lions can be found with this peculiar behaviour of climbing trees. Baboons and vervet monkeys are also found amongst the forested areas and in the more open spaces, giraffes snack at the fresh leaves while the various types of antelopes common to the region browse for tasty shoots. After a picnic lunch, there will be more time for further game and wildlife watching before it is time to return to Arusha.

Arusha National Park Safari

Arusha National Park (ANAPA) is a treasure of varied ecosystems and spectacular views of Mt. Meru, the crater that gives the region its name It is a popular destination for day trip visitors who are about to embark from the town of Arusha on longer northern circuit safaris and Kilimanjaro Climbs. The small national park includes the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush highland forests that blanket its lower slopes. Game viewing around the Momela Lakes is at a laid-back and quiet pace, and while passing through the forest many visitors stop to search for troupes of rare colobus monkeys playing in the canopy.

Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel, often unnoticed by safari goers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours. It’s the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey can easily be seen. There are shallows sometimes tinged pink with thousands of flamingos dwelling around the Momela Lakes which support a rich selection of resident and migrant waterfowl, and also shaggy waterbucks that display their large lyre-shaped horns on the watery fringes.

Day Tour: (Arusha/ Moshi) – Arusha National Park

In the morning, we shall pick you from your hotel in Moshi/ Arusha and take you to the Arusha National Park. The park has an incredible variety of flora and fauna, which cannot fail to impress.

Only a few other national parks in Tanzania give you such an opportunity and it is something that should not be missed.
