About Kenya , Tanzania

Serengeti & Kilimanjaro Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Nairobi

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.

Day 2 Kisii

Kisii is a large town set in a fertile, hilly part of Kenya and grows an abundance of bananas, pineapple, sugarcane and coffee beans.

Day 3 Lake Victoria

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.

Days 4-5 Serengeti National Park

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.

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater

Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.

Day 7 Meserani

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.

Day 8 Marangu

Nestled at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, Marangu is a small village surrounded by stunning vistas and lush forest.

Day 9 Mandara Hut

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.

Day 10 Horombo Hut

Changing vegetation and diverse landscapes pave the way to Horombo Huts (3,780 m), a gathering of A-frames sitting on a rocky plateau.

Day 11 Kibo Hut

Hike through spartan landscapes to reach Kibo Hut (4,740 m), a communal stone house with bunk beds and a small camp office.

Day 12 Summit

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.

Days 13-14 Marangu

Marangu's hotel offers a lush garden, hot showers, a pool and a bar/restaurant - all watched over by the stunning peaks of Kilimanjaro.
