Notes on the trips

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
Probably the world's most famous natural park. Inside  "this endless plain" (that  means Serengeti in Maasai language), dotted with rocks (kopje ), acacia trees, forests and small seasonal torrents  more than 3 million large mammals live completely free
The park can be visited throughout the year. The period from late October to mid-April is great to spot animals. At that  time it is possible also to see  great herds of gnu and zebras gathering  themselves in and nearby  the Serengeti just to give birth to the their calves.
The Serengeti is the perfect place for whoever loves nature, wide open spaces and mighty animals. It is a unique opportunity if you are keen on photography as well. In a few places in the world you will be able to admire  both spectacular and ever-changing landscapes and majestic animals like that. Basically, a trip recommended for all those who want a unique experience .Obviously participants are asked for a minimum of adaptability. It is important to live according to the rhythms of nature that means waking up very often at dawn and going to sleep right after the sunset. Minor  problems can still occur along these dirty roads and tire punctures can always happen! Accommodations are provided in excellent lodges. The journey in itself is not particularly strenuous and roads, although unpaved, are all in good condition. Our drivers and guides are also very well prepared and attentive to tourists ‘ needs.


NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA
It is the largest crater in the world. It is a natural amphitheater with a diameter of about 16 miles surrounded by walls that rise up to 610 mt. height. The game drive takes place on the bottom of the crater in 4X4 vehicles, encountering thousands of animals including predators such as cheetah, hyena and black-maned lions. You are likely to see ostriches, crowned cranes, red-billed woodpeckers and countless pink flamingos that color the salty waters of the lake.


LAKE MANYARA
Located at the foot of the Rift Valley, is one of the most beautiful places in whole Africa. You’ll be amazed by the lush vegetation of the forest, home of  herds of baboons and vervet monkeys. Further down the forest gives way to forests and marshy grasslands to finally get to the lake itself. Here are sighted many species of birds, including flamingos, pelicans and storks. Climbing lions are the guest star of the park. They usually climb trees and spend most of the day there, at 6 or 7 feet tall.


The journey to discover the most hidden and wild side of Tanzania continues to the Island of Pemba. A slice of heaven without computers and TV, but with all the necessary facilities to make your stay nice and comfortable and where you can still enjoy the pleasure of solitude on a real desert beach! It’s the perfect place for those who aim the contact with nature, without the chaos of the big resorts, and a sea of extraordinary beauty.


ZANZIBAR
The Island of Zanzibar is located in the tropics and so the weather is hot and wet. The sea is very calm and warm with an average temperature of 20° C. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and you can walk along the reef in several places, at low tide. Please find below few tips to choose the best time to go to :


From July to October: good time. Rains are scarce and the average temperature is 25 º C with low humidity. The breeze that blows with the approach of the night provides a pleasant relief to the heat of the day. There are not many tourists, so if someone likes to have a little privacy, it is the perfect time (obviously not in August).

From November to March : best months. It is the height of summer; rains are short but it is very hot and humid. From December through February the number of tourists is very high.

From April to June : it is the period of the Great Rains that lower temperatures. Nature explodes, literally, and everything gets green. It 's the best time for  a cheap holiday, in fact, many resorts are closed and therefore the number of tourists is significantly lower.


VILLA KIVA
Villa Kiva results from the desire to escape, to get away from the cold and bustle of big cities, and find peace and comfort in  one of the most beautiful and unspoilt spot of Zanzibar.
Villa Kiva has a central body, where a bar, lounge and living area are located and 11 double rooms, located in bungalows on either side of the villa. All rooms and halls are equipped with fans and air conditioning.
There is also satellite television and internet.
