A Walk in the Wild

A Journey through the Highlands of Tanzania

A Walk in the Wild

We’re still in the process of finalizing all the details (costs, exact itinerary, etc) for this epic safari.  As of now (early Sept 2018), we’re planning a 10- or 11-day safari scheduled for late Sept or Oct 2019.  Once everything is in place, we'll update this page and the itinerary will be announced in our Dec 2018 newsletter (to join our mailing list, complete the form at the bottom of this page).  Here's what we're working on:

Join Dan Hopkins, owner of GrassTrack Safaris, for this exciting (and active) journey through the volcanic highlands of Tanzania.  We’ll begin at the Ngorongoro Crater and enjoy a game drive in this Eden of wildlife. From here we’ll drive to Empakai Crater to begin our 3-day, fully supported trek down the Great Rift Escarpment to Lake Natron. Our Maasai guides and their donkeys will carry all supplies, cook delicious meals, and set up each night's camp. Following the trek, we’ll have the chance to summit Ol Doinyo Lengai, the sacred mountain of the Maasai towering over 10,000 ft. This is one of the most dramatic hikes in east Africa. As well as spectacular scenery, we’ll also witness the changing world of the Maasai pastoralists. We’ll then spend a few days at a tented camp in the Serengeti and enjoy walking safaris and game drives.
