The extraordinary physical geography of the country ranges from dazzling coastline (Indian Ocean) through to the central highland plateau (much of which is over 1,500m), to the rugged Great Rift Valley, to vast lakes, mountains, volcanoes and sweeping savannahs. You can also experience the wonders of Tanzania's many safari parks, just make sure you have your cameras ready!
Trekking and Adventure - To challenge yourself why not trek up Mount Meru (4,566m) or Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895m). The legendary Mount Kilimanjaro is visible for miles around, looming large in the clouds. It sets many records – the world’s highest free standing mountain, highest volcano, shortest distance on the planet from a tropical region (savannah) to a polar region (the icecap) and the highest point in Africa. It is a popular goal with our expedition teams and we give you the best chance of reaching the summit (5,895m) – a long and slow ascent allowing sufficient time for acclimatisation and rest. Its sister mountain, Mount Meru, is less severe but remains a challenging and beautiful mountain.
Culture and Community - We have a number of sustainable projects in northern Tanzania featuring school refurbishment, teaching and working within the community. You can plan your work, purchase materials locally and employ local tradesman to assist where necessary. Even with the limited resources available, your efforts will make a real difference to the lives of your local hosts who are colourful, friendly, inquisitive and always smiling.
Rest and Relaxation - You will get to enjoy Tanzania's famous safari parks - Sergenti, Lake Manyara or Ngorongoro Crater where you can look out for the big five - lions, buffalo, leopard, rhino or elephants. An added option available is going to Zanzibar to relax on the peaceful white sandy beaches or learn to dive in the beautiful turqoise sea.
