Active Tanzania Safari

Active Tanzania in a nutshell

Route / Safari / Trip Name Active Tanzania
Overview This itinerary starts with game driving in Tarangire National Park. The next stage is a mountain biking section from Tarangire to South Manyara and then from there to a forest reserve. The next stage is a hiking stage following ancient elephant trails up the rift valley scarp followed by a final mountain biking section following the top of the rift scarp in Mbulu land. The final stage of the route is traditional game drives in Ngorongoro and Serengeti with stops to see the Maasai and Olduvai gorge. This itinerary flies back from Serengeti, avoiding unnecessary driving time.
Pros For active types this itinerary is an ideal way of enjoying Tanzania without going stir crazy in a car for days on end. For mixed groups there are always options to either extend the riding sections or simply take it easy as there is full vehicle support. Far more engaging than traditional game drive itineraries and yet you still see the world famous sites as well.
Cons Not for purely game driving types - however for mixed family groups where some people want to be active and others want to take it easy this still represents and excellent option.
