Cultural Tourism

With Kilimanjaro, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, Northern Tanzania is endowed with some of Africa’s most wonderful tourist attractions. Visitors to Tanzania certainly want to see these places, but often don’t realize that the country has much more to offer. With the variety of cultures and as attractive scenery everywhere, tourists could easily spend a few more days in the country and enjoy a visit to friendly farmers in the beautiful countryside. Through the Cultural Tourism Programme, tourists can now choose for various cultural tours organized by our company

Lushoto, the major town and district center, albeit small, in the Usambara Mountains, half way between the coast and the parks. It was founded by the German administration after the people of the area had been ‘pacifi ed’ about one hundred years ago. It offers magnificent opportunities for hiking, bird watching in the mountains, partly covered by afromontane forest. It is a great place and a get away from the heat of the coast.

This small Game Reserve in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro plays a vital role in the Tsavo ecosystem, attracting much of the wildlife onto the lush carpet of perfect savannah during the Green Season. Foot safaris, mobile bush camps and important conservation projects are further reasons as to why this area represents the future of safaris tourism
