An ‘Active’ Safari through Northern Tanzania

Dec 19 2013 Written by:Richard Field

In July this year, I accompanied a wonderful family from the US on an active safari through northern Tanzania. This included a mix of mountain biking and walking through community wildlife conservancies and rural areas, hiking in the Ngorongoro highlands as well as more traditional safari and game viewing through Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

This safari offering is unique. Being on bikes and on foot it allows for plenty of wonderful, spontaneous and absolutely authentic cultural interaction. There were times when we would ride through a small village and all the villagers would line the road to cheer us through – it felt like the Tour de Tanzania! It is a simple, feet on the ground experience, which makes you feel as though you are truly a part of Africa. At the same time, the experience is of exceptional quality – great guides, your own private mobile camp, excellent vehicles and bikes as well as plenty of flexibility in the schedule to allow for spontaneous exploration. This is a really wonderful experience for anybody, but particularly families with children.
