Mkuru Camel Safari | Arusha Safari
This is Mkuru Camel Safari, a day tour from Arusha:
Mkuru Camel Safari is a community-based cultural tourism initiative, directly managed by local people, under the umbrella of the Tanzania Tourist Board and supported by Oikos East Africa a local NGO which manages development projects which focus on environmental conservation, improvement of water supply, education and awareness on environmental issues and other initiatives of poverty alleviation.
Mkuru Camel Safari includes camel and walking safaris, as well as a wide variety of cultural events, with the objective of spreading the knowledge of natural and cultural resources of Mkuru/Mount Meru area, and distributing the benefits of tourism to rural communities.
The income of Mkuru Camel Safari remains 100% locally, to pay salaries, guide fees, village contribution, running cost of the camp, trainings and transportation costs. The Mkuru community receives benefits from two different incomes: from the development fee that the community manages by itself, to pay for school improvements, scholarships for secondary education and other costs to improve the life conditions of Mkuru community.
The second way MCS is distributing benefits is through the Boma visit fee, each tourist entering in a Boma, is paying a fee that goes direct to the family of that Boma.
