Meet and greet from Karanga Adventure Tours staffs, from JRO airport you will be taken to the lodge for a refreshing, in the evening you will meet the bikes for personal adjustment and trial. If flying with Qatar Airways the plan will be well blended. In the evening we will take you to Arusha famous street for a dinner BBQ (vegetarian meals also available). On this evening we will give a briefing for the next day activities. After dinner, we will take you around for a drink if interested but if much tired we will return you to the lodge for a rest of the night.
The safari starts in Arusha and your introduction African trail riding begins in the Maasai village of Longido. Here in the shade of a large thorn tree, we have a briefing, check the bikes, set up our gear and set off. The trail begins on a well-maintained dirt road, so you have a chance to get familiar with the machine and the terrain. Loose gravel and a little sand will ensure you have some fun and build your skills and speed. We ride through rolling country with scrub and scattered thorn trees and we will see colourful Maasai herding their cows and goats. We may also see antelope and zebra, and if we are lucky perhaps a predator
After a night under the incomparable star-filled African sky, you will wake up refreshed. First, enjoy a hearty breakfast, and then we set off to explore the gorge that houses our campsite. A trail leads over boulders, and through narrow chasms. In some places, we cross the torrent and scramble up rocky walls. In some spots, we find strange cactuses clinging to the hot rock, in others we see lush ferns and palms in the damp shady gorge bottom. We duck under waterfalls and pass bubbling Jacuzzi-like pools and chutes where the brave can ride the natural water slide. Eventually, we arrive at the head of the valley, a huge natural amphitheatre cut into the imposing cliff. Here we find the source of the waters where many springs gush from the cliff walls and form pools and streams. We can play in the pools, shower in the waterfalls and enjoy our packed lunch. We can also have a chance to ride to the hot springs, footprints and around the Lakeshores for a closer view of the flamingos. We return to camp for an early BBQ and then off to bed.
We pack up camp and follow trails which wind along the base of the rift valley to the Maasai trading post of Mto Wa Mbu. Along the way we will see Maasai in traditional dress tending their herds. There is a good chance of seeing game animals close to the track. Zebra and antelope are often in this area, perhaps we will even see a giraffe or if we are a very lucky elephant. We stop for a break at a huge crater, and then push on to Engaruka for lunch. After lunch, we will head back to Arusha, where a cold drink will be waiting for us, and we can tell stories from our safari.
