Itinerary

Discover Kenya's bustling capital Nairobi.
Travel across the breathtaking Great Rift Valley into Kenya's fertile highlands.
Mingle with the locals in Musoma's lively marketplace and stay overnight on a quiet stretch of shoreline beside Lake Victoria.
Watch the famous grasslands and river valleys of Tanzania's Serengeti unfold on game-viewing safaris. Look out for lions, gazelles, cheetahs, wildebeest, giraffes and elusive spotted leopards.
Enjoy a game drive out of the Park and head to Ngorongoro Conservation area where we set up camp on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater - one of the most spectacular camping spots in the world.
Jump in a 4x4 and descend to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater. Visit the town of Mto Wa Mbu and browse the colourful marketplace.
Admire the cloud-covered summit of the upcoming challenge - Mt Kilimanjaro.
Hike through lush rainforest and spot monkeys in the overhead canopy
Rainforest gives way to rolling alpine meadows and the path crosses several ravines on a trek to Horombo Hut. Spend the night in the shadow of Kibo and Mawenzi.
Take a slower pace as the air begins to thin closer to the peak of Kilimanjaro.
Rise in the middle of the night, zigzag up a scree slope by lamplight and arrive at Gilman's Point in time to watch the sun rise. Continue the final trek upwards to reach the highest point in Africa, the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro.
Descend through alpine meadows and lush rainforests to Marangu and relax tired muscles with a hot shower.
