first_imgEvents/FamilsTanzaniaTravellers Choice Eight Travellers Choice agents recently explored some of Tanzania’s game reserves and luxury safari lodges, including the recently opened Asilia The Highlands, which sits on the edge of mountain forest north of Ngorongoro Crater, near a Maasai village. They were hosted by The Africa Safari Co. and South African Airlines.Tullie Seneca from Travel and Cruise Ceduna said it was here that the group were given the opportunity to visit the settlement, and speak to Maasai women and children still unaccustomed to meeting international guests.“It was fascinating to see how they live and their perspective on things such as marriage, which in their culture allows a man to have more than one wife,” said Seneca. “It was also interesting to see the way they are interacting with western culture. For instance the hut we entered had a solar panel on top to provide power for one little light, and they now have mobile phones. So some things from western culture they are choosing to bring in, but other things they are not.”The itinerary included a night at &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, and three nights in the Singita Grumeti Reserve, adjacent to Serengeti National Park.For Kathy Granger from Burnie Travelcentre, the game drives in Ngorongoro were outstanding but the Serengeti was the highlight.“We were able to see the animals migrating across the plains. The sheer vastness of it all was extraordinary – you can see forever,” said Granger.The group also experienced the luxury of a bygone era at the Singita Sabora Tented Camp, which is set up as a 1920s-style explorer’s base.last_img
