Logistical note for groups larger than 6:
We can accommodate 6 guests at a time on the quad bikes, thus when there are between 7-12 people, the entire group will complete a 1 hour training session at the 4 Wheeling Tanzania Recreation Centre from 8:30-9:30 am, then the group will split with half the group being transported by your driver & vehicle to the waterfall hike and half the group starting their 2 hour quad bike ride from the 4 Wheeling Tanzania Recreation Centre. Then, the group will meet for lunch at Gibbs Farm, switching activities for the afternoon. The afternoon hikers will need to be collected by your driver at the gate to the hike.
