Tanzania Trek & Safari

14 Day Active Adventure - Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire

Trek to The Roof of Africa, Kilimanjaro, followed by a Tanzania Wildlife Safari - The ultimate Combo!

An unforgettable Tanzania adventure including trekking the worlds largest freestanding mountain and a wildlife safari. Experience a range of climatic zones as you explore Kilimanjaro, ‘the Roof of Africa ‘ is a dormant volcano with 3 cones and a snow-capped peak.  Also known as Uhuru (meaning freedom in Swahili), Kili has seven established trekking routes.

You join the Marangu Route for the summit climb and descent down the southeast side.

The second part of your journey is a safari to see more of the spectacular landscapes and wildlife of Tanzania.  Explore iconic game reserves and national parks in Tanzania including Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park.

Depart early after breakfast and a briefing. Travel by vehicle through many villages and coffee plantations to the wooden village of Nale Muru (1,950 m/6,398 ft).  After signing in and preparing the porters, you begin your hike on a path through fields into the pine forest. Your climb begins gently but consistently through forest that is home to a variety of wildlife including the Kilimanjaro Colobus monkey.

Day 5: Kilimanjaro Trek

A short but steep climb up grassy slopes is rewarded by superb panoramic views.

Day 7: Kilimanjaro to Moshi

Wake at midnight to prepare for your Kilimanjaro summit ascent! Start the final, and by far the steepest and most demanding part of the climb by torchlight around 1 a.m. The goal is to reach Uhuru Peak just after sunrise. The beginning of this climb is darkness on a switchback trail with headlamps or flashlights through loose volcanic scree to reach the crater rim at Gillman’s PointRest there for a short time to enjoy the spectacular sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the 3-hour round trip to the summit of Kilimanjaro (Uhuru Peak,) passing spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that occupy most of the summit area.
