Detour, The Adventure Travel Marketplace is pleased to announce its newest travel destination: Tanzania, including climbs of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and walking and driving safaris in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, with cultural visits with the Maasai and other local indigenous groups. Although an amazing destination, Detour had no plans to list any trips in Africa this year until Africa VIP Travel was brought to our attention by some of their previous clients. We checked the company out and liked what we found; we think you will too!
Africa VIP Travel has created an almost cult-like dedication from their previous passengers, many of whom claim that company owner and lead guide Kambona Ole Tirra Mollel is the best and safest guide in the region. Kambona cut his teeth leading trips for some of the biggest name international adventure travel companies based in the US, and his personal touch is evident in every trip offered by the company. He has climbed Kilimanjaro over 86 times, and his philosophy of treating everyone as a VIP has gained him great success in getting climbers to the summit of Kilimanjaro safely. Over the last decade Kambona has taken advanced training in expedition leadership from NOLS and others, as well as wilderness emergency medicine and natural history. Being a native Maasai, Kambona was born in Maasailand and is trilingual, speaking fluent Maasai, Swahili and English.
Africa VIP Travel offers Mt. Kilimanjaro climbs on the Machame Route, shorter and easier Mt. Meru climbs, and wildlife safaris in Tarangire, Ngoronogo Crater, Lake Manyara, and Serengeti National Parks. They also offer an unusual wildlife and cultural experience on their walking safari from the Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Eyasi, combining vehicle safaris in the incomparable Ngorongoro Crater with numerous opportunities to interact with local tribes, including the Maasai and Wahadzabe (bushmen).
