Overview

This custom-made expedition is a must for bikers and nature lovers. The Tour will take us along a loop across all of Northern Tanzania. First, circling the world-famous Kilimanjaro. Then heading towards lake Chala where we can swim to confirm crocodiles were indeed eradicated from it! Then the gorgeous Lushoto highlands await is – this is where Pumba lives! Those interested will get a chance to even join a hunt with tribesmen! Our well-deserved rest day will be on the beach relaxing in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean – and getting massages. We’ll then cross several national parks, including the world-famous Ngorongoro crater conservation area, home of the lion king, the last remaining black rhinos and of course the other “big 3”. We’ll close our expedition after seeing not only one of the largest African flamingo colonies – but also petrified animals, frozen in salt for eternity!
