Trek Longido to Sunken Crater

Tour Overview:

Lets explore the beauty of Tanzania – The home to the amazing Maasai culture! We trek for approximately 100km through wild African country, along a route where Maasai villages and majestic volcanoes rise out of the acacia and savannah bush – this makes the most dramatic but beautiful backdrop imaginable. Starting in the foothills of Mt Longido (8,625 ft) to Oldoinyo Lengai – a sacred Maasai mountain, we trek across the floor of the Great Rift Valley with the Maasai as our guides.  In addition we end our challenge in Lake Manyara Park, where we can see wildlife such as lion, zebra, giraffe and elephant.  You’ll always remember this trek!
