Fun with Geocaching!

Geocaching is a treasure hunt for travelers and GPS users. People have set up caches all over the world, and you get to find them!

Sometimes they can be found at famous tourist sites, but sometimes they are located in a travelers favorite off-the-beaten-track spot. When you find the cache, there may be a token reward inside, and you can add your name to the list of people who have found the cache. It may be possible to find a geocache without a GPS, but it’s much easier and more fun with the GPS.

Adventures Within Reach has it’s own geocache located at Saddle Hut on Mt. Meru. Other geocaches in Tanzania include Uhuru Peak of Kilimanjaro, Serengeti Visitor’s Center, Olduvai Gorge, and Jozani Forest on Zanzibar.

In Peru, you can find geocaches at Machu Picchu, in Lima, and at Lake Titicaca. In Nepal, there are geocaches at Kala Pattar, Annapurna Base Camp, and Kathmandu.

Tibet and Bhutan can definitely use some more and better geocaches. AWR can help maintain them in country.

If you have a GPS, you may want to bring it with you on your travels and have fun with geocaching!
