One of the most rewarding ways to experience authentic Africa is by trekking through the wilderness. Learn tracks and signs whilst on a hiking safari with our expert guides.
There are several superb treks in the ecologically diverse Eastern Arc Mountains. These mountains are all that remain of the once great forest that covered the majority of Tanzania. They have been dubbed the Galapagos of Africa because of the high degree of endemism.
We provide a range of routes of varying difficulty , specially selected for their spectacular views and ecological diversity. Locations range from the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, Ngorongoro Crater Highlands, the Usambara Mountains , to the Rondo and the Mkonde plateaux. Walk types can be lodge-based guided walks, suitable for all ages and fitness levels, or adventure trekking itineraries only possible for physically fit clients prepared to camp in the bush. Porters are provided, but to keep environmental impact to a minimum we travel light.

Hiking classifies as a sport, as it involves walking certain distances either up or down a gradient of some sort.
Hiking is a very physically active sport, but is also able to be enjoyed by the whole family, as on most hikes, you get to set your own pace.
When Hiking, make sure you take enough water, and maybe a snack or two should you feel the need for something to eat along the way. Remember also to wear comfortable shoes, hiking shoes preferably, as the walk can take quite a toll on you feet.
Hiking is a good way to get closer to the natural surroundings.
