Pick up from your hotel in Arusha by our guide in a 4×4 safari vehicle and head South out of Arusha for a few miles before turning off onto a rough track that winds its way though a couple of of small hills before arriving at the base of a small extinct volcano crater.
Here we will meet our Massai escort and head off up the slopes of the crater at the low point. There are several options for the walk …. The longer walk all the way around the rim takes about one and a half hours and involves a couple of hundred foot of climbing but rewards this with spectacular views. For those with less time or inclination we can hike down onto the grassy wooded floor of the crater and visit the scared rock – there is just one ‘room sized’ rock laid on the crater floor and the Massai have all sorts of stories about its origin.
After the hike hop back in the cars for a 5-minute drive to a private farm. There will be chance to meet some members of the local community and watch (or join in!) some dancing and a traditional beading demonstration – perhaps have a go at making something. Walk a little further onto the farm where a sumptuous lunch will be served under a shady acacia tree. Time to relax and enjoy time in the bush and chat to your guide about life in Africa. Lunch includes soft drinks, wine and beer.
After lunch drive back to Arusha and drop off at your hotel.
