Lovejoy has been invited by the governor of Arusha, a city in northern Tanzania in East Africa, to visit the State for a conference on sustainable gardening and farming. The conference is sponsored by the Prime Minister of Tanzania.
“Before and after the conference, I’ll be exploring the diverse cultural richness of this beautiful country with you, meeting the local people and seeing how they live. Tanzania’s astonishing fauna and flora awaits us as well, so bring your camera, you’ll take dozens of once-in-a-lifetime shots!”
Lovejoy’s tour will include a photo-safari and visits to some of the most beautiful national parks in Tanzania, from Lake Manyara National Park, where you are likely to see hippos and pink flamingos, to Tarangire National Park, home to lions, zebras, giraffes and bounding Waterbucks. The photo-safari concludes at the visually stunning Arusha National Park, with its magnificent views of towering Mount Kilimanjaro and her majestic sister peak, Mount Meru.
At a mountaintop village kindergarten, tour goers will sing Swahili songs with children, hear local choirs, and join in on the chorus, visit with Maasai bead makers, learn how African cheese is made in small villages, and visit a working coffee plantation. Visitors on Lovejoy’s unique tour can choose to participate in the country’s first-ever sustainability conference, an historic event that could produce the model for Tanzania growing organic farming program, or engage in a wide range of alternative activities from exploring to shopping.
The tour’s nine-day itinerary is packed with opportunities to explore this exotic land, as well as add-ons, such as a breath-taking balloon ride over the Serengeti and the famous Ngorongoro Crater, as well as flying over Mount Kilimanjaro.
The climate this time of year is very comfortable, with daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s and nighttime temperatures in the 60s. “Come with me and discover this vital, fascinating country, at once exotic and friendly, peaceful and majestic,” Lovejoy says. “I promise, you’ll remember this trip for the rest of your life.”
