Adventure and Yoga in Tanzania
From 21 October to 03 November 2023
Have you long dreamed of going on a safari in Africa and finding yourself in the middle of the savannah to observe lions, giraffes, and elephants? Or venture up
Mount Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa? Do you also dream, when you work non-stop, to treat yourself to a few days on a paradise island with white sand beaches and turquoise water, and to practice yoga in this ideal setting?
It is possible to combine these dream trips… in one stay in Tanzania!
The travel agency Twende Africa Tours in collaboration with myself organizes 2019 an unforgettable stay in Tanzania-Zanzibar during the All Saints holidays. Very complete and flexible, it will allow you to see the most beautiful places of Tanzanian nature aboard a private jeep with your guide. This year, we are launching an alternative to the Safari: that of climbing the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 m).
And then, to rest, you will fly to Zanzibar where you will spend the end of your stay in an idyllic setting and
practice yoga (all levels). Want to go to Zanzibar only? It will also be possible this year 2023!
