Destination



1 ) Ngorongoro
Popular - Safari     Location - Ngorongoro, -Arusha, -Tanzania

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is in northern Tanzania. It’s home to the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Crater and “big 5” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino). Huge herds of wildebeests and zebras traverse its plains during their annual migration. Livestock belonging to the semi-nomadic Maasai tribe graze alongside wild animals. Hominin fossils found in the Olduvai Gorge date back millions of years.

The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Authority is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera. The Maasai have given Ngorongoro Crater its name, meaning “the black hole”. The Ngorongoro Crater is often called the “Eden of Africa”.

5 ) Machame Kusini
Popular - Mountains     Location - Machame Kusini, -Kilimanjaro, -Tanzania

 Machame is an area on the south-western slope of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Historically, she was in 1889 referred by Hans Meyer as a great African giant, also the largest and most populous of all the Chagga states in Kilimanjaro, whose ruler as early as 1849 was reckoned as a giant African king with influence extending throughout all Chagga states except Rombo. By the 1860s, a German explorer Von der Decken, presented Machame as a confederation of western Chagga states comprising Narumu, Kindi, Kombo, to as far as the Western end of Kibongoto, each with their own chiefs under the king of Machame. 'Baroni' observed that by that time only two of the Chagga states had some autonomy from the king of Machame, namely, Lambongo and Kilema. The rapid and certain disintegration of its influence over other Chagga states after an atrocious attack and her subsequent subjugation by Sina of Kibosho in the mid-1889, led to a highly confined influence constrained between Machame itself and a neighbouring ward, Masama, where a frail sultan of Machame seemed to alternate in abode.

6 ) Marang
Popular - Mountains     Location - Marang, -Kilimanjaro, -Tanzania

Marangu is a town located in Kilimanjaro Region. Nestled on the lower slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro, 40km northeast of Moshi amid dense stands of banana and coffee plants, is the lively, leafy market town of Marangu. It has an agreeable highland ambience, a cool climate and a good selection of hotels, all of which organise treks. While you’ll sometimes get slightly better budget deals in Moshi, Marangu makes a convenient launch pad for Kili climbs using the Marangu or Rongai routes, and it’s an enjoyable stop in its own right. Apart from anything else, there's a real sense of being up in the foothills here, which adds to the pre-Kili excitement and aids psychological preparation.
