Adventure season is finally here for the Asilia camps in East Africa. Each year from November to May it is THE official season to embark on those epic adventures you have been waiting to do. If you would like some inspiration on what adventures you can embark on, then look no further than The Luxury Safari Company, we are at the forefront to tell exactly where to go and what to do within Eastern Africa throughout this time and to see a completely different and wonderful side to this part of Africa.
Would you like to put on your walking boots and hike through stunning landscapes, getting closer to the land, flora and fauna – and perhaps a lion! Or spend a few days alongside the sensational Masai people instead of a couple of hours? We definitely know which options we would want to enjoy!
Within these months, the Asilia camps will promise to fulfil all your expectations, if not beat them with a series of completely immersive, adventurous, totally off-the-beaten-track-once-in-a-lifetime-mini-adventures all the way across Tanzania, Kenya as well as Zanzibar.
Walk across the vast expanse of the Serengeti, gallop alongside giraffe and zebra on the back of a horse, visit the Ngorongoro highlands and make the trek up, around and possibly through (!) the beautiful Lake Natron where you will come face to face with pink flamingos. Embark on a three-day walking adventure across true Masai land, passing through remote and rural lands east of Tarangire’s National Park. For the true ‘twitcher’s’, or passionate birders amongst you, there is even an adventure which focuses entirely on the magnificent birdlife endemic to the specific environments within Northern Tanzania. You will be accompanied by an expert birding guide who will make sure the focus is firmly on the ornithological splendours found within Tanzania.
Perhaps you’re more into adrenaline fuelled sports such as activities on the water. Within Zanzibar throughout Asilia’s Adventure Season, you can take up your passion and make the most of the ocean playground. This is the ideal package for those who tend to kick their heels abit when staying on the beach, perfect for those akin to being active and definitely not keen on relaxing! Spend days in the water kitesurfing, spend days above the water on stand-up paddle boards (SUP) or kayaking and if that doesn’t tempt you, you can even spend your days below the water, snorkelling and diving taking in the breath-taking view of vibrant coral life.
One of the final options is, of course, for sheer relaxation. Enrich your stay within Zanzibar with the ultimate focus on your wellbeing and health. This package ranges from fitness activities to pure relaxation and a proper pampering with spa treatments galore, yoga and mindfulness practice. All based at Matemwe Lodge, you will make the most of the resident yoga instructor, spa as well as other serene activities on the water, on land and around the island.
The possibilities are endless within Adventure Season! For more information please send us through and email or give us a call, you will not regret it!
