Ngorongoro highland treks: This is organised in cooperation with the members of a local Maasai village at the foot of Mount Makarot.

Chole Mjini was built by local people and these stunning tree houses were born and launched not only as a place to escape to, but also as an agent of positive change for the island's community. The success of Chole Mjini has allowed classrooms, teachers' housing, a hospital, library, market, and a women's centre to be built. Through their Chole Mjini scholarships there are now secondary school and university students and many people in permanent employment.
