At 19,336 feet, snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is Africa’s highest peak. It is also the world’s tallest mountain you can hike up without any prior experience, nicknamed “Everyones Everest” and what a walk it is. You go through 5 different climatic zones to reach the summit.
Kilimanjaro inspired the African continent to freedom. Kilimanjaro belongs to the people of Tanzania, the first nation in Africa to win independence from colonial powers (it was then called Tanganyika). Before gaining independence in 1959, soon-to-be President Julius Nyerere said: “We, the people of Tanganyika, would like to light a candle and put it on the top of Mount Kilimanjaro which would shine beyond our borders giving hope where there was despair, love where there was hate, and dignity where before there was only humiliation.” Today, the summit is called Uhuru Peak – Uhuru is the Swahili word for “Freedom.”
Kilimanjaro inspires transformation. When you climb Kilimanjaro and stand on the roof of Africa, you see the world in a very different way. What seemed impossible in your life might just be doable. Uhuru peak is a place for vision, inspiration, and a new beginning.
Big Game Safari
After you Kilimanjaro climb relax on a wildlife safari that is beyond incredible. Tanzania is a country with epic topography and is a mecca for wilderness and wildlife. This vast and sparsely-populated country boasts some of the greatest wildlife experiences on Earth. From the grasslands of the Serengeti, to the game-rich Ngorongoro Crater, from the endless flats of the Lake Manyara to the baobabs trees and elephants of the Tarangire National Park, Tanzania is the place to go on safari. Boasting 14 national parks and numerous game reserves, this is home to the largest wildlife herds on the African continent, as well as the palm-fringed island of Zanzibar, ideal for post-safari relaxation.
Our Safari Itinerary changes with the migration of wildebeest and is designed for optimum game viewing. You’ll be sure to see Africa’s Big 5: lions, rhinos, elephants, cape buffaloes and the elusive leopards. You’ll also see thousands of wildebeests, gazelles, baboons, cheetahs and heaps more.
