This challenge takes place in the wild African bush, home to
several Maasai communities. Perhaps the most revered of the great
African nomadic tribes, the Maasai originated in the Nile basin and
migrated south through Ethiopia to Kenya and Tanzania in the seventeenth
and eighteenth centuries. They were then known as the fiercest of
warriors. Now they struggle to retain their modest lifestyle.
Starting in the foothills of 2,590m tall Mt. Longdio, a sacred
Maasai mountain, you will trek across the floor of the Great Rift Valley
right to the foothills of the visually stunning Crater Highlands with
the Maasai as your guides.
En route, you will also have the chance to visit Mt Kitumbeine; on whose higher slopes are hidden remote Maasai settlements.
Once the challenge is complete, you have the option of a 4WD game
drive into one of the Natural Wonders of the World, the Ngorongoro
Crater or carry on to your hotel to relax.
