Not quite what you’d expect from a YPT tour but all our neighboring interests have led us to Tanzania. Join us on our tour as we begin in the town of Arusha, most famous in Africa for Mt. Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest mountain and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 meters.
We’ll board our 4x4s with our local expert guides in both knowledge and weaponry (for protection) and head through the Arusha National Park popular for spotting inquisitive blue monkeys and acrobatic black and white Colobus monkeys. We’ll then make our way to Ngurdoto Crater where we’ll encounter elephants, buffalos, zebras, and giraffes roaming in the wild.
One of the major highlights of our tour will be exploring Serengeti National Park – simply known as Africa’s greatest national park with the amount of different wildlife and species concentrated in this area. We’ll have the chance to meet the traditional Maasai community and camp overnight.
We’ll then continue our way to Ngorongoro Crater – the world’s largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera, and one of the last remaining homes of the illusive and highly endangered Black Rhino.
A trip to Tanzania is not complete without visiting Mt. Kilimanjaro where we’ll make our way up to the first leg of the route offering spectacular views. The tour will end in Dar es Salaam – meaning House of Peace in Arabic which is the largest city and former capital of Tanzania.
