The highlight of this tour is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. The distinctive, snow-capped dome which rises almost 5000m above the plains can be climbed without ropes or technical climbing experience.
Nevertheless, this is a demanding trek at extreme altitude. Summit day is particularly tough; however to reach the peak and view the African sunrise is an immense achievement and worthy of the effort!
We will give you plenty of support and advice as you prepare for your adventure. We also include an acclimatisation day to give you the best chance of reaching the summit.
We spend 7 days on the mountain; hiking via the Machame route through rainforest, open forest, mooreland and alpine desert before finally tackling the spectacular glacial summit. Our experienced crew of local porters and guides will carry all equipment and set up camp each evening.
The climb is followed by a safari in the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Parks. Spot the big five; lion, rhino, elephant, cape buffalo and leopard in East Africa’s premier wild life reserves. While on safari we camp in comfortable campgrounds with full amenities including swimming pool and bar.
To complete our trip we visit The School of St Jude. Established and run by inspirational Australian, Gemma Sisia, the school provides education for the poorest children of the Arusha area.
