Nature Discovery’s Signature Trekking Safaris

Trekking and exploring  outside the national parks affords unique opportunities get out and discover the bush on foot (or on mountain bike), encountering animals and learning about the African wilderness in way that is impossible to do from inside a safari vehicle.

Nature Discovery offers a number of unique trekking safaris, including our signature Maasailand trek in Longido, which is situated 75km north of Arusha, in the western shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Here you can lose yourself in a time ruled by pastoral rhythms of the ageless and graceful Maasai, far from tourist’s haunts.

This trip is brought to life by Sambeke, our dedicated Maasai guide, who leads you on a journey of discovery and wonder, through a time before machines, reconnecting to nature and satisfying the spirit of the nomad within all of us.

We outfit and operate our own private and exclusive seasonal camp at Longido; a place where we have built strong bonds with the Maasai, which is evident as we travel on foot/bicycle throughout the area, not as voyeurs but as warmly welcomed friends. Along the way, Sambeke invites you into the lives of his people. The encounters are genuine, and so is the experience.

In addition to our signature Longido trek, there are a number of other magical walks, treks and mountain bike adventures we offer around the Rift Valley escarpment, including the spectaculary scenic trek from Empakai Crater to Lake Natron. Geological wonders are found at every turn, and of course there’s always a great chance to view wildlife, especially birds and smaller creatures which are often missed from inside a safari vehicle.

We had a fantastic safari with Japhet (we did three safaris with him). He is a perfect guide with an excellent eye to spot animals and who takes all the time to wait for something special. In 12 days in Serengeti and Ngorongoro we saw one female cheetah with her cub trying to chase two times a gazelle; one female leopard playing with her cub, one lionness catching a zebra; more leopards in the trees with their kill…..We recommend strongly this agency for the safaris.

Une fois de plus je viens de collaborer ce début Août 2018 avec mes amis de Nature Discovery à Arusha pour organiser un séjour de 15 jours en Tanzanie.
Trek de Ngorongoro au Lac Natron puis ascension du Mont Meru à 4566 m. Et au passage visite des parcs nationaux de Manyara, Ngorongoro et Tarengire.
Comme d’habitude l’organisation et les services de Nature Discovery ont été absolument parfaits. Super drivers sympas et très compétents, guides locaux, porteurs, cuisiniers extraordinaires.
Et un choix de lodges dans les parcs tout à fait remarquable !
Cette agence, que je recommande vivement à tous ceux qui voudraient organiser un safari ou un trek en Tanzanie, est vraiment au “Top” dans cette région.

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
