Experiential Ecotourism & Cultural Experience
AfricanMecca believes that ecotourism changes the way visitors interact with the wilderness and local communities whilst on an ethnic holiday in Tanzania. Guests are encouraged to experience Tanzania cultural tours of local villages, farms, and sustainable projects such as Swala Camp’s beekeeping in Tarangire. They join in Maasai marriage rituals and celebrations, as at Gibb’s farm near Ngorongoro. They work together at schools like St Jude in Arusha and orphanages like that supported by Rhotia Lodge. Accommodation is often on tribal Maasai land, like Shu’mata Camp in western Kilimanjaro, hosted by the friendly and dignified Maasai tribe. They give a truly authentic Tanzanian experiential safari experience.
