What's included in this trip
Serengeti & Kilimanjaro SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Once a swamp but now called the 'green city in the sun', Nairobi is a relatively multicultural city with a range of cuisines, museums and cultural centres to enjoy.
Kisii is a large town set in a fertile, hilly part of Kenya and grows an abundance of bananas, pineapple, sugarcane and coffee beans.
Finding itself part of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, Lake Victoria is Africa's largest lake and home to a big population on both its shores and within its waters.
Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies.
Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.
Situated around halfway between Arusha and Ngorongoro, Mto Wa Mbu is a tiny town located near three rivers which is known for its curios and red-skinned bananas. Home to a bar covered in money and paraphernalia, a rotating community of Overlanders and a number of venomous snakes, of course, Meserani Snake Park is a true Tanzanian legend.
Nestled at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, Marangu is a small village surrounded by stunning vistas and lush forest.
Walk through picturesque fields of heather to get to the huts at Mandara (2,725 m), built in an A-frame style and housing 6-8 bunks.
Changing vegetation and diverse landscapes pave the way to Horombo Huts (3,780 m), a gathering of A-frames sitting on a rocky plateau.
Hike through spartan landscapes to reach Kibo Hut (4,740 m), a communal stone house with bunk beds and a small camp office.
Perhaps see snow on the challenging climb to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m) and feel the exhilaration while witnessing never-to-be-forgotten views of the crater, ice fields and lands below.
Marangu's hotel offers a lush garden, hot showers, a pool and a bar/restaurant - all watched over by the stunning peaks of Kilimanjaro.
