We are holding the ASGS in Arusha, Tanzania because East Africa is the epicentre of savings group activity. The conference venue–the Arusha International Conference Centre (AICC)–is located in the heart of Arusha city, which is the safari base of the world renowned “Northern tourist circuit” that includes Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, Serengeti National park, Lake Manyara National park, the Ngorongoro crater (commonly known as the eighth wonder of the world), Tarangire National park, and Arusha National park to mention just a few.
Easily accessible within three hours of Arusha, the parks of Tarangire and Lake Manyara are definitely worth seeing with the world famous tree climbing lions sitting in the trees overlooking the lake in the Lake Manyara National Park. A little bit further on is the Ngorongoro Crater, one of the wonders of the world and a true sight to be hold and then the world famous Serengeti, with its vast open plains full with thousands of animals of all different species that all come together to make an outstanding safari experience.
In the South of Tanzania, there are two of the most unspoilt national parks in Africa; the Ruaha and the Selous National Parks. These parks are so untouched that you feel truly at one with nature and with the ability to see all of the big five roaming free, Ruaha and the Selous are also worth visiting.
There is, of course, Zanzibar, the island of dreams that is just waiting to show you its rich history and culture. Stone Town has winding back streets with shops tucked away for you to explore. The beaches to the south and to the north are gorgeous and also unspoilt. Don’t miss out on a chance to learn about the history of spice trade and also take a trip to Jozani Forest, a truly remarkable place.
Back up north is a treat for mountain climbers. Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro play host to hundreds and thousands of climbers every year and with a variety of ways to climb depending on your levels of expertise, these mountains could tempt you to try and climb them.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Tanzania with more off the beaten track tours and excursions to choose from like climbing Mt Hanang, scuba diving with whale sharks to learning how to hunt with the Hadzabe Tribe near Lake Eyasi. Then also don’t forget that within easy reach is the Masai Mara in Kenya, gorilla trekking in Rwanda and white water rafting in Uganda.
