AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN NGORONGORO WITH AFRICANMECCA
Many of the Ngorongoro lodgings afford close proximity to surrounding wildlife. Secretary birds stalk about coiffured lawns while nocturnal bush babies clamber in trees overhanging near the guest verandahs. Lions thunder in the expanse and hyenas laugh. Cicadas thrum. Crickets chirp. Tinker birds beat a rhythmic cadence. Night scented blossoms weight the air with swooning fragrance.
You are part of a past time when campfires flicker, Maasai warriors chant, drum, leap and dance. Colonial standards of comfort, luxury, and service are available, as are authentic safari camping experiences, yet the modern world is not too far away (read more on where to stay in Ngorongoro Crater).
Comfortable and convenient custom-built game-spotting vehicles have sturdy four-wheel drive and are manned by knowledgeable, native AfricanMecca guides, versed in the lore of their people and reverently enthused by their animal neighbors. If dining outdoors, the on-board cold-boxes hold culinary delights and an international selection of drinks.
Two-way radio contact ensures safety and up-to-the-minute reports on dynamic wildlife action. Pop-up roofs afford a platform to record your adventures on DSLR or bridge cameras and video recorders. Excursions to sites of historic and cultural interest could enrich every day of your authentic vacation in Tanzania.
Closest to the present are every-day social activities on farms and in towns and villages, such as tours of gardens and plantations, partaking in baking, harvesting, tree-planting, coffee roasting, pot and furniture making, grain pounding and sampling local beers. You may visit schools, co-operative projects, rural businesses and craft centers or learn about and Maasai culture of Ngorongoro and Serengeti, joining in their celebrations, dancing and local ritual ceremonies.
More active walking safaris can encompass bird-watching, visits to waterfalls and elephant caves, botanic tours, and even an energetic hike to the crater rim, when you may meet families of baboon ambling along the track, tails arched in greeting. But don’t get too close. They are formidable in defense of their families.
Cycling Safaris are available to explore country lanes, or tackle a full-day mountain bike outing through the highlands to the glorious Rhotia Valley or around Gibbs Farm. You could take a day trip to Laetoli, where hominid footprints, over three million years old, can be seen in its sedimentary rocks, or visit Olduvai Gorge, site of the evolution of mankind, with its rustic museum where you can see the earliest tools, hardly credible as forerunners of today’s technology.
If you prefer to relax, you can take a massage or a spa treatment, enjoy high tea in a beautiful garden, picnic at a site of outstanding verdant loveliness, enjoy sundowners overlooking forests and farms to distant volcanic escarpments and floors, tinted gold in the dying day, or yarn around a campfire under a glittering canopy of stars. These are superlative, discerning Ngorongoro experiences available with AfricanMecca!

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.
