Africa. There's a sense of vastness and romance in the very name. It is a land of incredible wildlife, amazing geography and rich traditions. Our adventure takes you to to a remote part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. You will wander far off the tourist trails. Where we take you, there are no roads, no electricity and no villages. This is the home of the legendary Maasai warriors. And you will live their life for one glorious, adventure-filled week. Join them as they lead their cattle deep into the savannah. Trek through one of the wildest places on the planet. Camp under a million stars every night. See wildlife up close and in a way that the tourists on safari will never see. Witness the wonders of the Ngorongoro Crater, one of the natural wonders of the world, a UNESCO International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site. 

While you rough it out in the wilderness, you will learn the ways of the Maasai. You will herd cattle, go bushwalking, learn about their traditional medicine, the rich traditions and the ancient wisdom of the Maasai tribe.
