Featuring mobile camps and opulent lodges, this 9-day expedition is for intermediate or experienced riders and is available from June to November.
Arusha – Bushbabies Welcome You to Tanzania
Intriguing calls fill the evening on the outskirts of Arusha, where your lodge is engulfed by a wild forest. The shouts are from bushbabies, endearing tree climbers that create a soundtrack that keeps you guessing about their exact whereabouts. Witness Tanzania's charm as a postcard-worthy view of the country's beauty comes into perspective, with both Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro visible from the lodge in the afternoon. Located between Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha, Rivertrees Country Inn provides a comfortable base after the intercontinental flight. You'll be greeted at the airport, and it's just a 20-minute drive to your accommodation. Dinner is included, and there's time to wander tropical gardens that are filled with bougainvillea, hibiscus, and banana trees.
