Why Choose A Tanzania Walking Safari?
Here at Life of Riley, we love the idea of kicking off our boots and getting back to our roots. A National Geographic Walking Safari in Tanzania would be amazing enough on its own, but what if we said that you’d be walking alongside Africa's oldest tribes people - The Maasai and the Hazda?
This eleven day holiday has to be one of our best yet. It also offers so much more than I can mention here, so here are just a few of the many highlights:
On the shores of Lake Eyasi, a stunning salt lake in the Great Rift Valley, you’ll spend a full day living among the Hadza tribe (who number less than a thousand) They grow no food or keep no livestock, only hunting and gathering - a nation unchanged in 10,000 years.
What Else Makes This Adventure So Incredible?
Then settle into Maasai country, getting to know the culture and hiking the Highlands and Ngorongoro Crater - a 100 square mile caldera framed by steep green walls and teeming with some 30,000 creatures. You’ll also see the majesty of the Serengeti Plain with our Maasai hosts as they herd their livestock amongst lions, elephant, cheetah, leopard, giraffe, buffalo and vervet monkeys.
**Depending on the time of year, you may also be lucky enough to witness the great wildebeest migration.
At a Maasai village, you’ll be greeted with a traditional foot-stomping, high-jumping welcome dance and you’ll get as close to our roots as possible at Olduvai Gorge, where the Leakey family made groundbreaking discoveries of early human origins.
