Trekking with Nature Discovery

Mountain trekking opportunities abound in northern Tanzania where the Great Rift Valley has spawned some of Africa’s greatest mountains. We look forward to taking you trekking in our very special corner of the world, including:

  • Mount Kilimanjaro – This iconic snow-capped dormant volcano is Africa’s highest peak at 5,895 meters (19,341 feet) above sea level. Trekking on Kilimanjaro takes you through five different climatic zones, from tropical rainforest at the base to arctic conditions with permanent glaciers near the summit.
  • Mount Meru – Another dormant classical cone-shaped volcano, Mount Meru, rising only 70 kilometres (43 miles) west of  Kilimanjaro, stands 4,565 meters (14,968 feet) above sea level, making it Africa’s seventh highest mountain. Trekking on Mount Meru, inside Arusha National Park, gives you superb wildlife spotting opportunities, with dramatic views of Kilimanjaro at every turn.
  • Oldony’o Lengai – Known by the Maasai at the ‘Mountain of God’, Oldony’o Lengai is an active volcano and the world’s only carbonatite cool-lava stratovolcano. Described by Wired Magazine as the most unique volcano on the earth, its carbonatite lava contains calcium, sodium and carbon dioxide creating silvery black magma eruptions which glow dark red at night!
  • Mount Longido – The wild forested slopes on Mount Longido are the backdrop to our private bush campsite and the bespoke Maasailand treks we offer in this area. Trekking in the bush on animal trails, where no other tourists go, gives us the chance of seeing wild game species which are not seen in the national parks, and meeting true pastoralist Maasai along the way…. An authentic experience not unlike going back in time.

TrekkingIt’s hard to believe these diverse and unique landscapes coexist within such a relatively small area. Moreover, these geographical phenomena and the biodiversity they shelter exist only here in the north of Tanzania.

Trekking allows you to become part of the landscape and get up close and personal with the wildlife and nature. It’s a privilege to visit these wilderness areas, a grounding and humbling experience that creates the memories of a lifetime.

Nature Discovery are simply phenomenal. Without their superb planning, attention to detail, and the expertise of the guides we wouldn’t have been able to even attempt the World Record. (World’s Highest Football Match ) We cannot recommend the team highly enough and you can trust Ailsa, Thomas, MC and the team completely for your amazing adventures.

Thank you for the most amazing trip with the best bunch of guides and porters you could wish for…

The pictures are now doing the rounds and we are having a big get together at a local pub tomorrow evening to show all the pictures and videos taken and that will be a great evening and you and all of our guides etc will be very much in our thoughts. Our group had Honest, Nastoria, Edward and Laizer as our guides and they were absolutely fantastic. Please, please pass on our huge thanks to them all for their expert advice and encouragement that managed to get us all to the top and this was solely due to their magnificent help. The food was absolutely top class (better than the Lodge!!) and Good Luck a delight as our waiter.

I can’t thank you enough for the experience, something I know that will stay with me forever
