In this sustainable and immersive travel, we will enjoy 10 days in the north of Tanzania. It is ideal for couples who want to celebrate their honeymoon in Tanzania, but if you have not married, do not worry, it is a trip open to everyone.
We do not apply revolutionary rates for honeymooners, it is the same price whether you are on your honeymoon or not.
Through the NGO with which Trip to Help collaborates, we will be able to see how children receive a free education in English thanks to the efforts of this solidarity project to offer a quality educational program. We will also see how the locals can go to the medical center, where they are visited and cared for by Cornelia and her team, or how the orphanage serves as a home for underprivileged children. These three projects are perhaps the most important, but not the only ones we will be able to see during the first two days.
An incredible 5 days of safari will be our next plan for the next few days. Now, that you know where your travel money is going, it’s time to enjoy one of the most breathtaking experiences in the world. We will visit the most important parks in the country, such as the Serengeti or the
Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
During these 5 days, we will have a Maasai or a local guide who will guide us and explain everything he knows about the animals living in freedom in these parks. We will be able to ask and ask questions, and in addition, we will learn about their vision of nature, living beings and how they live in connection with them. During the safari, we will camp in the middle of the parks to be in maximum contact with nature, in areas set up for camping.
Once the 5-day safari is over, we will spend a few days with the Masai community. It will be a few days of experiential and immersive tourism in its purest state that will remain forever in our memories. We will live with and like them and learn more about their culture, traditions and beliefs.
10 dream days to enjoy immersive and sustainable travel in the Tanzanian Masai community, to make a 5-day safari full of adventure, learning and the most incredible scenes, and also knowing that our trip has a positive impact. The 10-day immersive sustainable travel in Tanzania will be unforgettable.

We will be picked up from Kilimanjaro Airport and drive through rural Tanzania to Momella, where we will spend the first night at Hillside Retreat. Hillside Retreat is a beautiful lodge owned by the NGO. Very well looked after and with sustainable policies. We will take advantage of the day to rest and gather strength for the rest of the trip.
After breakfast, we will visit the NGO 7 minutes away by car. There we will be able to see the whole project: the medical centre, the primary school and the social projects that are carried out, such as the sewing workshop with typical Tanzanian fabrics. After lunch we will go to the orphanage and spend time with the children. In the afternoon, we will return to Hillside Retreat, with time to rest and get ready for dinner!
After breakfast: off to Tarangire National Park! Tarangire is one of the places with the largest elephant population in Tanzania. So we will start seeing these big mammals in the wild from the very first moment - time to get your camera ready! At sunset, we will drive to our accommodation: the Tarangire National Park camping area. Our guides will set up the tent for us on arrival and prepare dinner for us to enjoy nature and relax.
We will get up for breakfast and drive about 4.5 hours to the Serengeti National Park. We will enter the park in the afternoon. This is the place to see the Big Five and if lucky, enjoy the natural spectacle of the Great Migration. We will go to the Serengeti Campground for an unforgettable bush experience.
After breakfast, we will go to a unique place in the world: the Ngorongoro Crater Protected Area. We will spend the whole day there, in the crater, enjoying a colourful spectacle where we will be able to appreciate how all the animals live in complete harmony. Later we will go to the viewpoint, where we will be able to see the dimensions of this wonderful place. In the afternoon, we will go to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area campsite to enjoy the calm and toast with a Tanzanian beer while the sun goes down!
We visit Lake Manyara, a smaller, protected area, which allows us to be closer to the animals when we come across them - giraffes and elephants will accompany us all the way! We arrive at our next destination: Original Maasai Lodge - the Maasai cultural immersion begins! A delicious dinner awaits us, and a room in a modernised boma at Maasai Lodge, with all the comforts and yet 100% sustainable. You won't be able to take your eyes off the thousands of stars!
After breakfast, we go on a nature walk with our Maasai guide. He will show us different types of plants and their healing qualities, talk to us about how insects and different trees interact, and we can ask him anything we can think of about his language, culture or beliefs. We will have lunch at the lodge to enjoy another typical recipe and go to visit the projects in the Maasai area. In the afternoon, we will be taught how to throw the spear for hunting, learn about their dance rituals, dance with them as the sun goes down, and have dinner around the fire, where we can talk and learn more about their culture. We will sleep at the Maasai Lodge.
Today we will be Maasai. We will wake up at dawn, dress in their clothes, and go to milk the milk from the cows and goats of our community. After lunch, it is time to separate. The men will go to collect medicinal plants, and sacrifice a goat or sheep and then prepare dinner on the fire. Meanwhile, the women are busy collecting firewood, and tidying up the houses, inside and out. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, and understand how they live and what they feel doing each of their tasks. The day will end with a ritual dance around the fire, and with a succulent dinner to which we have all contributed. This day will not be forgotten. In the evening, the Maasai experience continues. We will sleep in an original Boma, like any Maasai family, and the next day we will probably need paper, pen, and a little time to express what we have felt and learned.
Last day in this corner of the planet - let's make the most of it! We are going to have breakfast in the middle of the African steppe, what is known here as a "bush breakfast". This image, eating in the middle of nowhere, with our guide who has accompanied us every day, will stay with us forever. We will return in plenty of time to pack our bags. We will say goodbye, and we will be driven to the airport (1h 30 min). Asante sana, Tanzania!
