The essence of a guided nature walk

Set off on a guided nature walk amidst the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This late afternoon adventure takes you through diverse habitats that range from grasslands to swamplands, which are home to an abundance of wildlife. This is a fantastic opportunity to get closer to nature and offers exceptional photographic opportunities along the way. Your Maasai guide will introduce to the region’s fantastic biodiversity and will allow you to get within safe distance of plains game.

Throughout your journey you will be stunned by the immense beauty of the surrounding landscape. Cast your eye from Uhuru Peak – the Roof of Africa – to the nearby mountains, the lush rain forest, the cascading waterfalls and the gushing rivers lining the valleys. Marvel at the exquisite expanse of farms filled with deliciously fragrant coffee and banana trees, golden maize fields, picturesque pastures and dazzling wildflowers, and at the extraordinary sightings of the panoramic plains below. As you meander through the foothills, you will crisscross the lands of the local people.

This wonderful cultural experience offers great insight into the inhabitants of the mighty mountain and offers an intimate glimpse into the spectacularly simple lives that they lead in this breathtaking setting.
