Lying just three degrees south of the equator in Tanzania, Kilimanjaro (19,340ft., 5895m) is not only the highest point in Africa,
but the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. We use the small, friendly town of Moshi as our base instead of the more tourist
oriented Arusha, providing you a more relaxed atmosphere and a better experience with the local culture. Our very small groups take
six days, instead of the usual five days, for this non-technical climb, to allow you proper acclimatization and a more comfortable
and successful summit day. The Machame Route is one of the most beautiful routes on Kilimanjaro and will take you from lush
with its exotic plants, to the primordial snow and ice, and steaming fumaroles of the summit crater. In the cold wee hours of morning
you will begin the steepest and most demanding part of the climb. Slowly you'll climb. Higher, still higher. You'll reach the crater
rim about sunrise, where, depending on weather, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view, as Africa awakens to a new day. Continuing
on for a short distance around the rim, you can ascend a little higher to the top of Uhuru Peak, the true summit of Kilimanjaro and
the highest point in Africa. On this route, you'll spend the nights in tents, and porters carry your gear during your ascent to the
legendary "snows of Kilimanjaro". No previous mountaineering experience needed for these expeditions.
Some of the most famous and
unique wildlife parks in Africa are found in Tanzania, so join us on a seven-day safari and we will take you to some of our favorites.
Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, and Serengeti. Their very names fire the imagination. Wild, yet fragile.
You'll stay at comfortable, selected safari lodges at each of the parks, taking day trips in search of the very best wildlife viewing.
From flamingos and secretary birds, to elephant, giraffe, lions, hippos, zebra and impala, You will have the opportunity to see these
and many more in their natural habitat.
