Description

Among the best ways to explore the diverse landscapes and see the iconic animals of East Africa is by heading out on a Kilimanjaro and safari package.

Over the course of 10 days, we will hike to the top of the highest summit in Africa (5,895 meters/19,341 feet) and visit some of Tanzania’s iconic national parks and nature reserves afterwards.

The fun begins after we pick you up from the airport in Moshi and transfer to the hotel. The following day, we will make our way to Kilimanjaro National Park and begin hiking.

Over the course of the next three days, we will hike through dense tropical rainforests, across  high-altitude moorlands and through an arid and rugged “lunar” desert, all en route to the summit.

Starting from a hut in this surreal rocky desert, we will hike up to Uhuru Peak, the highest on the Kilimanjaro summit, passing Africa’s only glacier en route.

From the base of the summit plateau, we will enjoy a phenomenal sunrise over the plains of East Africa before continuing on to the true summit and congratulating ourselves for climbing one of the world’s Seven Summits.

After coming back down from Kilimanjaro, the fun continues as we transfer to the next portion of our trip: the wildlife safari.

Over the course of the following three days, we will explore Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater – the eighth natural wonder of the world – and finish off the trip with a visit to Lake Manyara National Park.

Each of these locations will give us the chance to see just about all of East Africa’s iconic wildlife, including the incredibly rare black rhino in Ngorongoro crater and the tree climbing lion in Lake Manyara National Park.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 10-day Kilimanjaro and safari package in terrific Tanzania!

If you like the look of this trip, but only have one week to spare, then we think you may also enjoy our 7-day ascent of Kilimanjaro via the Machame Route!
