SEATTLE, WA, Dec. 5, 2017 – As safari specialists in the Serengeti region, Wildland Adventures has shared its love of the people, wildlife and landscape of Tanzania. To bring in the new year the company is announcing new enhancements to its safaris plus a trip giveaway for two.
“What better way to celebrate 25 years of Wildland Adventures’ African safaris than to offer an online giveaway with a grand prize, a 12-Day Serengeti Wilderness Safari for two!” says Kurt Kutay, Wildland Co-Founder and President. The giveaway, wildtripgiveaway.com, runs Dec. 4 through Dec. 24, 2017. In addition to the safari valued at nearly $12,000 for two, the winner and companion also receive three sets of clothing from Toad&Co, two Adventure Camera Kits from Mountainsmith and two Grayl Water Purifier Bottles. International air is the responsibility of the winner and not included.
The runner-up prize is one Adventure Pack from Mountainsmith, one piece of Debug Clothing with Insect Shield Technology from Toad&Co and one Grayl Water Purifier Bottle. Plus, one daily winner will receive a Grayl Water Purifier Bottle.
New for this year on its Serengeti Family Safari are visits to a Wa Irakw tribal family in the Karatu area enroute to the Ngorongoro Crater and coffee-growing areas. The Wa Irakw are genetically linked to Afro-Asiatic tribes who migrated south from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers over 500 years ago, stopping enroute in Ethiopia and Somalia. Children and adults alike will learn how to make a traditional Wa Irakw hand drum, engage in Swahili language lessons and try out their haggling and business skills in a local market.
Also new are expanded family accommodations (two with interconnecting rooms) at the southern Serengeti’s Lake Masek Tented Camp. This camp is ideally located for viewing the Great Migration from December through March when the wildebeests are calving. Guests will also appreciate the new vehicle upgrades with the addition to the fleet of five new Land Cruisers with pop-up roofs, camera-charging plugs and a fridge for cold drinks.
For every night on a Wildland itinerary, a donation per guest goes to the Emusoi Project in Arusha which educates indigenous women and girls who lack the support or funding on their own. Guests have the option to visit the project during their stay and see firsthand the difference this program makes. Also the new Mara River Tented Lodge (12 spacious ensuite tents, 4 family tents, swimming pool, solar power and Wifi) will open in May 2018 in North Serengeti National Park. Ideally situated in the Kogatende (with airstrip) near the Mara River, guests can observe northbound herds crossing the river as well as the proliferation of African wildlife throughout the area.
The per person double rate for a 12-day Serengeti Wilderness Safari is $5,685. Experiences include game drives in Tarangire National Park, visits to markets and a beading co-op, hunting or foraging with Hadzabe Bushmen, hiking with Maasai in the highlands at Ngorongoro Crater, and four nights safari in Serengeti National Park.
The per person double adult rate for a 10-day Serengeti Family Safari starts at $4,550. There are discounts offered for children under 14 years of age.
Both programs include guided tours and excursions, English-speaking naturalist guides, airport-hotel transfers, local air transportation (family program only), accommodation (hotel, tented camps, local farmhouse), safari transport on specially outfitted 4 WD safari vehicle, three meals daily, bottled water and beverages, park entrance and camping fees, Wildland Adventures travel consultation and pre-departure services.
