Tembo Mlevi wraps Kili and hits Safari.

Hi everyone

I am a couple of days behind here – apologies!
We wrapped up a fantastic trip in the mountain Monday, cleaned up in Arusha and headed out on Safari Tuesday morning.
We are currently in Tarangire National Park on the Northern park circuit. Yesterday we saw 2 lions, tons of birds, elephants and giraffes, monkeys, mongoose and more. A stellar day which wrapped up with drinks and the sunset. It is very quiet here at the lodge.
We are off the NgoroNgoro Conservation Area today, one of the worlds largest calderas. It offers superb wildlife life viewing and our lodge is perched on the rim of the caldera overlooking the whole scene.

Thanks for following along!

  • Hunger Relief Fundraiser Raises Over $30K for Kilimanjaro Crew

    We have not been able to operate Kilimanjaro expeditions since February 2020, and during that time our friends over in Tanzania have not been far from our mind. COVID-19 has decimated the Kilimanjaro tourism industry and the income that the local people rely on to house and feed their families. In a typical year, travel […]
