When it comes to booking your summer holiday, of course you could opt for the usual suspects of a beach or city break in Europe or America, but why not consider something a little different with your partner, friends or family this summer?
Step out of your holiday comfort zone and choose a holiday with a difference.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
How about a summer holiday with adventure in the breathtaking land of Tanzania?
If you book your summer holiday now, there’s still plenty of time for you to get in fantastic shape for scaling the great Mount Kilimanjaro or its little sister marvelous Mount Meru. We recommend a minimum of 3 months mountain trekking training to ensure you’re fit enough to reach the summit of either mountain. So if you booked your trip now for June onwards then you’d be in perfect time for enjoying some of the best months of trekking in Tanzania.
September and October are the very best months to trek but June, July and August also offer ideal conditions which is perfect timing for the summer holidays if you want to take your kids on a holiday of a lifetime.
Imagine the stories they’d be sharing when they arrived back at school! Not everyone can say they’ve summited Mt Kibo or Mt Meru, seen lions in the wild, met a Masai tribe, swam in a natural hot spring in the African wilderness or trekked across the Serengeti. These are the sorts of experiences that stay with a person a lifetime and are ideal experiences for young and impressionable minds because lessons can be learnt on an african adventure such as this.
You could choose a Serengeti Safari taking in all the sites of the African wilderness such as Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Shifting Sands and the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. Taking a safari trip will enable you to see tree climbing lions, elephants, giraffes, black rhinos, flamingos, hippos and no end of incredible plant and birdlife.
The Serengeti and Kilimanjaro regions are filled with history so visiting Tanzania is also a chance to understand more about the evolution of the human race, the geology and ecology of our planet, and the traditions of the local tribes people.
Choosing an adventure expedition will fill you with excitement. Every step you take will lead to somewhere new, every way you turn will show you something incredible. Adventure feeds the spirit and builds character. You will return a different person to the one that arrived.
If you choose to summit Mt Killi or Mt Meru then there will inevitably be struggle and toil in your journey but there will also be smiles, leaps and laughs along your trek to the top. There are very few holidays in the world that can cause you to feel such a wide spectrum of emotions in one trip.
There is something unexplainable about any journey you take in Tanzania. It is one of the most incredible countries in the world and one which has the ability to alter a person, for the better.
“The best journeys in life are those that answer questions you never thought to ask.” ~ Rich Ridgeway
If you’re interested in a summer holiday destination with adventure in mind then look no further than booking an eco trek up Mount Kilimanjaro or a Safari trip in the Serengeti. Very little else compares, but you can find that out for yourself when you get here.
