This could be the ultimate Bucket List trip for some people. The idea of this trip is to embrace Tanzania and everything it has to offer.

We are going to go and work in a local school in Machame. We are going to paint class rooms, play with the children and get involved.

Next, we are going to to trek for 4 days to the summit of Mount Meru. For the whole trek you will be accompanied by a Park Ranger because of the wildlife!

Once we have finished the trek, summited the mountain and returned back to Moshi we are then going to head out on Safari. We are going to spend 2 days visiting both the Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.

If you would like ot visit Tanzania but dont want to climb Kilimanjaro just yet then this could be the perfect trip for you.
