9 Day Adventure
9 Day Guided Tour - Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Experience a range of climatic zones as you explore the Roof of Africa – a world class Adventure. As the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano with 3 cones and a snow-capped peak. Also known as Uhuru (meaning freedom in Swahili), Kili has a number of trekking routes and towers over the east African countryside at 5895 metres.
The spectacular landscape of Tanzania – from the islands and coastal areas, to the inland plateau, to the highlands and Great Rift Valley that transects the centre of the country, allows for a large concentration and variety of wildlife. There are iconic game reserves and national parks to explore in Tanzania, and adding a post-trek trip to relax in Zanzibar, or a few days on wildlife safari at the Ngorongoro Crater, or in Lake Manyara, Tangire, or Arusha National Parks is highly recommended!

Information and Facts
Tanzania’s climate is mostly of a subtropical climate, especially in the coastal regions. The country has two distinct seasons; a wet season, also known as the summer (November to February), characterized by heavy rain falls and humidity and from May to August is the country’s winter season where the weather includes cooler, drier conditions and very little rainfall.
Canadians can enjoy safe travels year-round in Tanzania. We recommend that all our travellers purchase travel insurance to cover theft, loss, cancellations/travel interruptions, accidents and non-pre-existing medical problems.
The (UV) sunrays can be very strong and can cause a burn, even on a cloudy day, and therefore it is important to bring, and regularly apply, sun block as well as wearing sunglasses and comfortable, long-sleeved clothing. Stay hydrated and cool off in shaded areas as much as possible.
As well, make well-informed decisions, take necessary precautions as you would with travel anywhere else, have copies on-hand of your important documents (ie: passport, excursion confirmations, event tickets, etc.), while keeping them stored separately (and safely) from the originals.
Some vaccines may be recommended, and should be up to date when travelling to Tanzania. These recommended vaccines include: Tetanus, Diphtheria, Hepatitis A & Hepatitis B, typhoid, yellow fever, measles, meningitis and the influenza shot among others. It is best to seek advice from a medical professional prior to travel.
Currency & Customs
The currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian Shilling. There are ATMs in major towns throughout the country and Visa and MasterCard is often widely accepted.
Your Canadian passport must be valid, or should not expire, for at least 6 months past the date of your return. Canadian passport holders require an entry visa to enter Tanzania.
There are restrictions on the amounts of alcohol and tobacco products brought into the country. Plants and animals, and products made from such, will be subject to restrictions and quarantine. All Food Products should be declared on arrival.
The electrical current for Tanzania is 230 volts; it is recommended for certain appliances such as hair dryers and straighteners to bring both a plug adapter and converter. For newer electronics such as tablets or smartphones, a plug adapter may only be needed as the voltage could automatically adjust (best to seek advice from an electronic or gadget specialist).
The main spoken languages in Tanzania are English and Bantu Swahili. There are also a variety of indigenous languages spoken throughout the country.
