Tanzania

Tanzania

From the high snows of Kilimanjaro, to the wide open Serengeti plains – Tanzania offers a world of wonders for walkers and trekkers alike.

Standing on the snow-covered summit of Kilimanjaro, nearly 20,000ft above the dusty plains of Tanzania, is a dream of mountain lovers the world over. And witnessing an African sunrise from here is a truly extraordinary experience.

The Lemosho route to the top, offers the best acclimatisation – critical for making a successful summit bid. It’s also one of the most scenic routes gradually ascending over the course of seven days, from lush forest, through moorland to an increasingly stark rock-strewn landscape, until finally crossing a glacier field to reach the snow-capped summit at first light. We follow this route on our Kilimanjaro Summit, Lemosho Route trek

Alternatively, our Summits of Meru & Kilimanjaro trekking holiday gives a pre-ascent of nearby Mount Meru. Not only does this provide an excellent acclimatisation trek but it is also an interesting contrast to Kili. Situated in the Arusha National Park, Meru is home to leopards, giraffe, zebra and buffalo to name but a few of the animals that may be encountered on the trek up Meru’s lower slopes

Read an account of reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro in our blog article - An interview with Harry - Mountain Kingdoms' Operation Assistant.

Away from Kilimanjaro, Tanzania has some of the best safari parks in all of Africa including the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Park. Here you can see numerous creatures, both great and small, as well as a myriad exotic birds. Take a look at our Tailor Made Tanzania options to find out where you can enjoy amazing wildlife encounters.

And at the end of an exciting trek or safari the sumptuous white sands of Zanzibar offer the chance to extend your holiday in Tanzania, relax in style and reflect on a truly unforgettable experience.
