DAYS 2/3 - SINYA 
After breakfast you will be met by your guide and depart for a remote area in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro called Sinya, a private wildlife reserve on Maasai land. Flood plains, hills, acacia woodland and a memorable landscape of Mt. Meru and Longido Peaks give life to one of the most beautiful, pristine, wild areas of Northern Tanzania. This is the arid land of Sinya, one of the few areas in Africa where huge Elephant Bulls, more than 50 years old, carrying tusks of considerable size, are regularly seen. These bulls, some of them living permanently in the zone, together with herds of mothers and calves, migrate from Amboseli National Park to Sinya in search of water and food. Because of their familiarity with safari vehicles in Amboseli (Kenya) , they allow you to approach them at very short distances, allowing for excellent photographic opportunities. Most of them have been monitored by Cynthia Moss in Amboseli for more than 25 years and form one of the healthiest and most balanced Elephant populations of the whole African continent. The Maasai in Sinya still live in the traditional way and are spectacularly dressed and follow all the traditional ceremonies. They are very friendly and unexposed to the commercial relationship with tourists that is common in other more visited areas. You will have opportunities to be led on wildlife walks, visit the Maasai villages and market, and participate in ceremonies if the occasion arises. While in Sinya you will spend two nights at Kambi ya Tembo, a small luxury tented camp that looks directly at Mt Kilimanjaro and is the only facility in the reserve. Activities while at Kambi ya Tembo include game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, bird watching and walking safaris escorted by Maasai warriors. Also, during free times the Askaris (watchmen) will patrol day and night for animals, and the area will be cleared by our head watchman well before children are allowed to walk or play.

Today after you arrive and eat lunch you will depart in the late afternoon on an evening game drive returning in time for drinks and story telling around the camp fire with the enormous African sky overhead. Excellent meals are served under the trees or in the dining tent. Overnight - Kambi ya Tembo (all meals & activities)

The parks contains a series of shimmering alkaline lakes, which attract large flocks of flamingo’s and a variety of birds, along with elephant, buffalo, zebra, gazelle, wart hog, hippo and an amazing number of giraffe. The rare black rhino is also found here. 
One of the highlights of today’s game drive is a short walk to a viewing area overlooking the miniature Ngurdoto Crater, which is completely reserved for the animals, so no one is allowed to go down into it.
