Firelight Expeditions Offers 40 Percent Savings


Available only in April and May, Firelight Expeditions is offering 40 percent discounts on vacations staying at the Lupita Island resort in Tanzania. Additionally, the Green Season package extends the 40 percent savings with a safari into Serengeti national park. And for a true never-to-be-forgotten adventure, optional tours can take guests to visit Jane Goodall’s Gombe Stream Chimpanzee Preserve, located nearby the resort.

Located on a 130-acre private island in Tanzania, Lupita Island resort sits lakefront, overlooking Lake Tanganyika—the longest lake in the world. With 11 thatched-roof cottages and two family cottages, the property offers amenities such as scuba diving and sailing, private outdoor spa treatments, and locally flavored dining.

Additional excursions are also available to take guests into the surrounding area with helicopter rides through waterfall-filled landscapes and private trips into the tiny surrounding villages.

Standard room rates start at $1,290 per night for a luxury suite, and include government taxes and community fees; roundtrip transfers from Lupita airstrip; selected excursions and activities; house wines and spirits, and laundry services. For more information, visit
