GUIDE ON NDARAKWAI RANCH CAMP IN WEST KILIMANJARO
Ndarakwai offers a unique opportunity to visit an increasingly popular type of Tanzanian ranch vacations. It is primarily a wildlife conservation project, partly funded by the profits of the fantastic African safari hybrid camp situated in acacia woodland overlooked by the surreal sky island that is the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the shining mountain, as it appears to float over the southern Amboseli Plains in Northeast Tanzania, part of the Kilimanjaro Conservancy NGO project. Ndarakwai is a private ranch over more than 11,000 acres, rescued in 1995 by Peter Jones from poaching and overgrazing which had decimated its wildlife, and since developed as an experimental eco-friendly and self-sustaining base for western tours of Kilimanjaro and the seasonal elephant migration routes. It is now an emergent wildlife haven where you can observe more than 70 mammals, and a bird-lovers’ paradise, where over 350 bird species have been recorded. As a private concession area, it offers guided walks and night drives which permit greater intimacy than is possible in a national park across the Kenyan border in Amboseli National Park – all part of the same ecosystem. Amongst its non-profit community projects, it operates an anti-poaching team and a school meals program and welcomes volunteer workers and researchers. Accessed by air to Arusha or Kilimanjaro Airports, and an overland drive through Maasai homelands, it is an ideal place for AfricanMecca guests to relax and acclimatize before and after attempting to trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, or simply to drink in the marvelous ambience of an incredible and much-loved landscape. You can also fly from Arusha to West Kilimanjaro, and connect to/from Serengeti and Zanzibar if you prefer point to point air convenience and ease of accessibility.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
