Begin your Tanzanian journey on a jeep trek to Lake Manyara National Park known for its abundant wildlife and breath-taking scenery. Travel there through low altitude villages where you will provide life-giving aid to people in need of malaria nets and life straws. The route will also take you along the bottom of the epic Rift Valley escarpment with multiple river crossings.
Drive the length of Manyara National Park, climbing the Ngorongoro Crater and through the sensational Masai land far off the beaten track when cattle, zebra and wildebeest all mingle together. Find your camp situated in a 350,000-hectare private concession in the heart of the wilderness. Here, spend a night in an intimate mobile camp which follows you as you move across the vast Serengeti plains, offering prime locations for seeing the extraordinarily diverse wildlife that this park has to offer, including: lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, hyena and hippo, as well as more than 300 bird species.
Crafted for those with a desire to do more than just scratch the surface, here animals are not the only star of the show. Head out of the camp and meet the fascinating Masai people. PELORUS will offer you the chance to fully engage with the tribe and gain a unique understanding of their lives. Enjoy a bush lunch under the acacia trees before delighting in the rare opportunity to involve yourself in crucial conservation work. Guided by experts you will be given the chance become part of a team collaring a lion, wild dog or elephant. Or spend the day tracking the fascinating patterns of the wild dog, all the while witnessing the spectacular wildlife, including the immense numbers of wildebeest, surrounding you.
Travel towards Hadzabe where you will learn from a knowledgeable guide about the phenomenal relationship between active volcanoes and the mineral needs of lactating mother wildebeests. Experience the park on foot as you head into the bush to trek up a rocky escarpment to your stargazer tents in the heart of the wilderness. Enjoy sunsets, stars and the calls of the wild in themost visceral of ways in this unique setting. Meet the Hadza people with whom you will forage and hunt. Walk with them in the veld harvesting berries, nuts, wild honey and possibly a small bird or mammal for the fire.
