The gateway to Masaailand is the beautiful town of Arusha in Northern Tanzania. Various plains game and some larger game and predators can be hunted from beginning of July to end of December. Two beautiful areas provide excellent hunting of particularly Thompsons and Grants Gazelle, Fringe eared Oryx and Southern Gerenuk and I have never seen such large Impala rams as here.
Mto wa Mbu Game Controlled Area of about 2 000 square kilometres near the township of Mto wa Mbu, adjoins Lake Manyara National Park and the beautiful Rift Valley with two camps. The block meanders northwards along the escarpment stretching about 29 kms eastward from the escarpment. It is mainly flat land with alluvial sandy soils with scattered acacia patches of bushland. It is an area for hunting Southern Gerenuk, Lesser Kudu, Thompson and Grant Gazelle, Fringe –eared Oryx, Buffalo and Leopard ( although they are scarce), Steinbuck, East African Impala, Masai Bushbuck, Cokes and white bearded Wildebeest, Klipspringer, Bohor Reedbuck, Ostrich, Kirks Dik - Dik, East African Eland, Hyena, Zebra, Warthog etc.. Other concession areas are also available.
Combi hunts can be offered for hunting Buffalo and the Northern Burchells Zebra in the Selous and then Thompsons, Grants Gazelles and East African Impalas in Masaailand on a 10 or 16 days hunt. From here its not a long drive to visit the famous Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater from the camp. Transport for this journey will be in addition.

A successful hunt in the Selous and Masaailand can never be completed withoutafterwards visiting the spice island of Zansibar and Stone Town at little extra cost. In fact, the flight from Arusha to Dar es Salaam stops en route in Zansibar.
