Tanzania’s Non- Profit Tour Co.!

Testimonial! Keri-Lyn, Canada, 2018

I stayed with Leesha and Lau and family on a 6 week trip through Tanzania. I’ve known Leesha for many years and it was wonderful to reunite with her in Mto Wa Mbu. They showed me around the village, introduced me to their community and I got to witness the passion and inspiration that lives in their entrepreneurial projects. I had such an incredible time in the village. The people are kind and welcoming, the scenery of the Rift Valley walls and Lake Mayanara stunning. I shared some art classes, visited the market regularly, enjoyed the local food and hit the dance floor for a little nightlife! I highly receommend connecting with Boma Africa. Mto Wa Mbu is the perfect place to set out for safari or take some time to relax and settle in and make some friends after travelling around. I hope to make it back one day!! Thank you for being such amazing hosts! xoxo

Tanzania Featured in National Geographic’s “Best Trips of 2018”

Of course Tanzania is featured, it’s so amazing!  They highlight the serene Ruaha National Park- it’s Tanzania’s largest park and is found on the Southern Safari circuit so is relatively quiet when it comes to tourist volume.

Ruaha National Park

This is Tanzania’s second largest park, and deemed also the second wildest park in Tanzania. Game routes follow the Ruaha River, where wildlife of all kinds migrates to catch a drink of life nourishing water. Leopards and lions wait in the grasses while antelope shyly make their way to the water’s edge, quickly sipping before escaping to safety! Ruaha has the distinction of housing a great diversity of antelope, affecting this park’s ecosystem to be unique, abundant, and magnificent.

The LK Kindergarten playground

Every time I go running up the wall of the rift valley here in Mto wa Mbu I pass the school and the community centre. In addition to the AMAZING view and the great workout , what makes me really happy is that there are children playing on the Sue and Martin Parnell playground! The playground is locally built and is the only public playground around. In addition there are new homes popping up around the area.

It has been 4 years since it was built and it is in need of some TLC.  Such a gift for the students at the school, and the children living in the area that have a place to play! Repairs and upgrades that we would love to get done include;

  • creating a shade area for the hot days/ afternoons
  • putting sand/ soft ground down
  • repairing the merry go round that had an arm fall off
  • replace the wooden slide with a rolling PCV pipe slide
  • replace the wooden seats in the teeter- totter
  • install new additions
    • we already acquired about 20 old tires that we can use to build some cool climbing/ agility structures
    •  

      WANT TO HELP?

    • We are accepting donations for playground upgrades!

Join Boma Africa for the Kilimanjaro Marathon- March 4, 2018

The annual Kilimanjaro marathon is coming up in just over 2 months!  Not sure I can train up to a half marathon that quickly, but might sign up as a 21 km run/ walk for myself.

The marathon was founded in 2002 and attracts almost 9000 runners including locals and athletes from around the world. The route heads up the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, passing through forest, plantations, villages, and the town of Moshi.  Winners claim prizes up to 4 million TSH.

Our most memorable Kilimanjaro Marathon was Kili Quest 95.2 in 2013.  Lawrence and Martin Parnell of Canada planned to run the marathon, then attempt to climb Kilimanjaro in just 24h!  It was amazing- they summited Kilimanjaro- but not quite in the 24 hours they had hoped!  This was a successful fundraiser for the organization Right to Play.

The only marathon I’ve ever done was the Kilimanjaro Marathon- and I only did half!  It was hard, but such a fun day!  Everyone is in such high spirits and the locals of the sleepy villages come out to cheer you on or join up with you for a few kilometres.  Many folks from around the world, and from Tanzania are there for a fun day- mixed with elite athletes training for the Olympics!

If you are looking for a race to add to your itinerary and a chance to go on a world class safari, or to climb Kilimanjaro, get in touch!
