Tanzip Zipline Adventures offers you the unique opportunity to fly across the African sky while taking in the stunning views of the surrounding lakes, the Maasai steppe and the Rift Valley.
The zipline is connected to six platforms which are built around ancient baobab trees. You can enjoy a refreshing drink at the end of your ride at the legendary tree house bar. The majority of the staff are locals from the area and have been trained by international industry leaders in safety regulations, first aid, height safety training, local ecology and culture and customer service.
The zipline is located on the Northern safari circuit of Tanzania, just outside the village of Mto wa Mbu, and can be easily added to your safari itinerary or booked as a day trip from Arusha or Karatu. The treetop course includes over 1 km of zipline, four separate ziplines, and a suspension bridge.
Ecological & Social Footprint
Since Tanzip Zipline Adventures intends to keep their footprint as light as possible, the course has been integrated into the forest, and guests don’t access the forest grounds. Branch pruning is done according to established forestry practices while the cable is attached specifically to avoid any direct contact with the bark or trunk of the trees. The location was chosen in order to fulfill the wish of the nearby Maasai; as they wish to create additional employment opportunities for their community. Furthermore, Tanzip funded the construction of a local school in the community.
