The breathtaking landscapes of Ngorongoro Crater Highlands, the loving glance of a giraffe, walking for hours through infinite space and silence, meditating between impalas and zebras, a delicious dish prepared by your magician cook, the smell of burning wood, a lovely African sunset or the sound of a roaring lion in the middle of the night in the Serengeti. All these ingredients of this unique safari are super seducers. They surprise your eyes, let your ears spires, your skin tingle and they juggle with smells and tastes.
Life seduces you tirelessly for no other reason then to open and surprise you. It invites you to see that all the locks on your doors are unnecessary. It lures you with all its forms and colors to soften your walls. And life shines unmistakably, every day again. This unique Ngorongoro and Serengeti safari plays Casanova and the meditations give you space to enjoy even more for all those radiant splendor around you.
You will stay in Oasis Meserani in Arusha; Ilboru Safari Lodge in Arusha and bush camps in Ngorongoro and Serengeti.
The aim of this package is to offer you a special safari in Tanzania but also to help you experience what happens when you shift from your thoughts and feelings to your senses. This shift is like waking up from a deep sleep. The world is even more beautiful and safe then you were able to see, drawn deeply in your own mind.
With a diversity of active and passive meditations, profound breath work, dance meditation, exercises, heart meditations and more you will see that relaxation cannot be found in your own mind but in your connection with reality. Your greatest gift to yourself and others will be your presence in the here and now. The wild nature of Tanzania is a wonderful support in this profound process.
Adventure means to leave your safe well known world behind and to enter a new and unknown world. When you step in, you will never know what you will meet on the way. The Ngorongoro Crater highlands is positioned in the top 10 of most spectacular landscapes in the world. The heart of this safari is shaped by an old Masai trail which you will follow in four days from the village Endonyowas to the famous Lake Natron. During this hike you will be guided by Mindful Adventure's Masai friends. Every day you will walk about 12 to 15 kilometers. And every day you will take in a different kind of landscape; savanna, tropical rain forest, mountains, craters, and desert. You will end up in famous Lake Natron to enjoy its extraordinary landscape, flamingos and romantic waterfall. From there you will chase for lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, and more in Serengeti.
Mindful Adventure will support the travelers to connect with wild life and the local people of East Africa in a more profound way. They would like to see the guests touched and enjoy pure adventure. Pure means that they offer a tour that shows highlights, as well as exploring the uniqueness of the locals, tribes, flora and fauna, villages, towns, restaurants and accommodations. To do so you will be tempted to leave the jeeps and luxurious resorts behind. Mindful means that your special attention is focused to provide for you an active (walking / biking) and also peaceful and relaxing tour to reach a sincere experience of your safari.
You will arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania where you will be met by the guide and taken to L'Oasis Meserani just outside Arusha to spend the night. L'Oasis Meserani is a spiritual place. It has been built up during the past 17 years by a Tanzanian lady called Margaret.
You can see she did this in a loving and caring way. What makes it extra special is that she also has her own vegetable garden and takes care of her animals in a eco-friendly way.
Alternatively you can arrive one day earlier at Nairobi Airport and take a taxi to Wildebeest Ecocamp just outside Nairobi. This campsite is spacious, quiet with good showers and has a nice shop and good restaurant. There's a variety of choices in tents to stay overnight, from basic to luxurious.
The next morning you will be taken to the bus station by taxi to catch the bus to Arusha which will take five to six hours. In Arusha you will be picked up by the guide to be brought to L'Oasis Meserani.
You will be picked up for a game drive in Tarangire National Park. Tarangire is well-known for its many elephants and baobabs. In the evening you will stay at a favorite campsite Mto Wa Mbu. You will be dining under the beautiful acacia trees being observed by the mongoose, monkeys, and tropical birds.
Today you will leave to Ngorongoro and visit some Masai friends in Endonyowas. You will be heartily welcomed into their ceremony and have a chance to get in touch with them. Meanwhile the donkeys will be packed to join you in the afternoon for your first walk to Bulati. There you will spend the night on the edge of Embulbul depression in your own tents.
From Bulati you will walk a sturdier walk to the Empakai Crater. Following a special path, you can even enter the crater to enjoy silence, atmosphere, smells, and if you're lucky even a group of flamingos. That's where you will stop and spend the night listening to the sounds of the bush.
From Empakai you will walk to Akesha Campsite. You will visit the village of Nayobi to have lunch and get extra water for your trip. You will camp in the wild at the edge of Great Rift Valley.
From Akesha campsite you will do a breathtaking trip alongside Great Rift Valley to Lake Natron. There you will spend three nights at Lake Natron Tented Camp to relax and enjoy the trip to an amazing, crazy waterfall where you can go for a lovely swim. You will also visit the special lake where the biggest colony of flamingos in the world resides.
At Lake Natron you will be picked up by the driver to spend three days in Serengeti and look for lions, leopards, elephants, hippos, and other wild animals who can be found in the park. At night you will sleep at campsites among the wild, listening to the wonders of the night. On day 11 you will return to Mto Mbu and Migunga campsite.
After a short visit to the favorite, flourishing town Mto Wa Mbu the group will return to Arusha where you will be dropped off in the luxurious Safari Lodge on the slope of Mount Meru. Safari Lodge is run by a brave Dutch lady called Annelies. The lodge has a very good restaurant, a swimming pool, and a nice shop. It's the perfect place to enjoy peace and quiet after the impressive tour you've just accomplished.
You will be free to do whatever you want. You can explore daily life with Msfari and visit markets, shops, and other places of interest. It's up to you.
Today you will fly home. If you fly through Nairobi, it is better to book a night flight which gives you the opportunity to travel by bus from Arusha during the day.
After working for years as meditation teacher and therapist in the Netherlands (naturopath, bodywork, breathwork, hypno-and regression therapy, Clarity Proces and counselor/coach), I ended up unexpectedly in Tanzania. After an inspiring search on the spiritual and therapeutic market between 1985 and 2004, I came in touch with the Clarity Proces of Jeru Kabbal. I practiced his teachings on a daily basis for six years. This changed my way of looking at life radically. Our mind follows a script which is programmed in early years and endlessly repeats itself, even if reality is totally different.
This safari will take place around the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands and Serengeti in Tanzania.
Daily meals are included in the price during the days with activity. During the free days spend in Arusha and Mto Wa Mbu meals are not included. Your food will be provided by a safari cook. You can choose a vegetarian or meat based diet
