Bicycle Tour

BICYCLE TOUR

Biking does not get better than what is available in Tanzania. One of the best ways to explore Arusha and its surrounding villages is by bicycle. This gives you the freedom to explore quiet village roads and trails. In some areas like Manyara, cycling is a popular form of local transport.

Hot air balloon safari

HOT AIR BALLOON TOUR

Serengeti Balloon Safaris brings guests on unforgettable hot air balloon rides, and it is one of the best ways to view the wildlife unobtrusively. Thanks to its gentle winds and predictable weather patterns, the Serengeti offers perfect hot air balloon conditions nearly every day of the year, so it’s an option for almost any trip.

Ngiresi Cultural Tour

NGIRESI CULTURAL TOUR

Ng’iresi Village is situated 7km out of Arusha on the steep, green slopes of Mount Meru. The inhabitants of the village are all farmers of the Wa-arusha tribe. The Wa-arusha are family of the Maasai, but have gradually shifted from pastoralism to agriculture.

Lake Duluti

LAKE DULUTI

Lake Duluti is a small crater lake east of Arusha just 10 minutes drive along the Moshi road. A nature trail around the lake is a sanctuary for over 130 different bird species including kingfishers, osprey, buzzards, eagles, doves, storks and babets.

Kilimanjaro day hike

KILIMANJARO DAY HIKE

Marangu is the coolest route on Kilimanjaro. The elevation is very slow and steady, allowing for effortless hiking for most of the way. The hike will take you to Mandara Hut (1 970m – 2 770m) which will take you 6 to 7 hours.

Coffee and Cheese Tour

COFFEE & CHEESE TOUR

A perfect day out to discover the local culture of the Arusha region. The Mulala village is a typical rural setting on the southern slopes of Mount Meru, surrounded by spectacular views. It lies at about 1 700m above sea level and you wind your way up to the mountain through a maze of lush, green vegetation dotted with small farms.
