On this trip, which includes an 8-day solidarity safari with Maasai in northern Tanzania, we will have time to go on safari in the most important national parks and have a real and immersive experience with the Maasai community.
The trip starts at Kilimanjaro Airport, where our guide will be waiting for us, to take us to one of the most rural and disadvantaged areas of Tanzania. Thanks to the NGO we work closely with, Africa Amini Alama, which has been working for decades to improve the lives of the poorest families in the area, with health and education projects.
We will visit the schools, the medical center, the orphanage and other projects managed by the NGO. They will explain the daily routine and we will feel very welcome.
Thanks to donations and travelers like us, the NGO receives the necessary funding to be able to educate children in good facilities and with quality training programs. In addition, for those children who either do not have parents or who cannot take care of them, they have an orphanage that also gives them a home when they leave school.
After seeing firsthand how your trip with Trip to Help impacts this area of Tanzania, We will start the 4-day solidarity safari visiting Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This solidarity safari in northern Tanzania is entirely managed by the NGO, so they are the ones who keep the benefits of the safari.
Once we finish the solidarity safari, we will spend a few days in an eco-lodge managed by the Maasai community . This lodge is located in the Maasai area, overlooking Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, the two most famous mountains in Tanzania. It is a lodge owned by the NGO and built by Masai women. We will take the opportunity to Rest and learn about the Masai culture through the different activities that we will be able to do with real Masai, who are part of the NGO project.
So, if you are looking to do the most famous safari in the world, want to meet the Maasai community up close, but at the same time want to be supportive and contribute to your trip, this is the experience for you.
Undoubtedly, this 8-day solidarity safari with Maasai in Tanzania will not leave you indifferent, and you will return with a vital experience for life.
On the first day of the trip we will be picked up at the airport or at a pre-arranged place, and we will head to Momella, where we will visit the projects of the NGO Africa Amini Alama. We will see from the first minute the impact of travelling with Trip to help as the money invested in the trip goes directly to the different social projects that the NGO has: schools, medical centres, orphanage and vocational training. With a bit of luck we will meet Cornelia, doctor and daughter of the founder, who spends long periods of time there running the day to day running of the NGO. We will stay at Hillside Retreat, a charming little hotel in the middle of nature that belongs to the NGO.
