4 Days Cultural Tourism to Engaruka

ITINERARY

Day 1: Safari to Visit Local Irrigation Methods

Drive from Arusha to to Engaruka. You can see the remnants of the ruined city of Engaruka. The guide will help you to identify old graves, house walls, irrigation canals and terraces, and explain the various theories about the rise and fall of the farming community. Enjoy the colorful birds and butterflies, remnants of the German era, and also visit an “orpul” or Masai slaughter-house. From the ruins, we walk to the village of Engaruka, visit several farms and learn about various farming and irrigation methods. The guide will throw light on the tribal background of the village. On the way back, visit the market area located in the shade of African tulip tree and a huge mkuyu tree. Dinner and overnight stay at camp site in Engaruka

Day 2: Safari to Rift Valley and Kerimasi Mountain Climb

From the ruined city, narrow footpaths wind up the Rift Valley escarpment. Climb the escarpment guided by a Maasai warrior, who will help you spot many colourful birds and show you trees and plants that the Maasai use for making food and medicines. North of Engaruka is the green mountain of Kerimasi. The climb takes three to four hours from the foot to the summit. From the top, you see impressive views of Oldoinyo Lengai, Lake Natron, the Ngorongoro highlands and the mountains of Kitumbeine and Gelai. The descent takes about two hours. Dinner and over the night stay will be at camp site in the area.

Day: 3 A Climb to Kerimasi and head to the foot of Oldoinyo Lengai

Conquer Oldoinyo Lengai or “the mountain of God” in Masai parlance. On the first day, you climb Kerimasi mountain and descend on the north side to camp at the foot of Oldoinyo Lengai, the only active volcano in Tanzania. Dinner and overnight stay will be at camp site in the area.

Day: 4 A Climb to Oldoinyo Lengai and later transfer to Arusha

In the morning of this day, start the 4-5 hour climb to the top, where you can even enter the crater to watch the volcanic activity. The descent takes about 2 ½ hours. Have lunch enroute and have a transfer to Arusha town in the evening. Have dinner and overnight stay at your booked hotel/lodge.
