Itinerary

  • Arrive in Arusha

    We will pick you up from the airport upon arrival. Transfer for overnight stay at Grand Melia Hotel. We will gather in the evening at 5:30 pm for a pre-climb briefing and an equipment check. We will also confirm you have the appropriate mandatory medical coverage and travel insurance. Dinner and overnight at the Green Mountain Hotel on half board arrangements.

    • Grand Melia Hotel
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Machame Gate to Machame Hut

    After completing the necessary registration formalities at Machame gate, we begin to trek through the beautiful and lush forest. We will have a picnic lunch en route. The walk takes between five to six hours and we will set up camp at Machame Camp (9,800 ft).

    • Machame Hut
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Machame Camp to Shira Camp

    After breakfast, we leave the glades of the rain forest and continue on an ascending path, crossing the little valley walking along a steep rocky ridge, covered with heather, until the ridge ends. The route now turns west onto a river gorge. You will end the day with time for rest, dinner, and overnight at the Shira Campsite. Today's trek will be 5 km and takes 4-6 hours. We are ascending from 9,400ft to 12,500ft.

    • Shira Camp
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Shira Camp to Barranco Camp

    Today's journey will take you 10 km and 6-8 hours. We will ascend from 12,500ft to 13,000 ft. From the Shira Plateau, we continue to the east up a ridge, passing the junction towards the peak of Kibo. As we continue, our direction changes to the South East towards the Lava Tower, called the "Shark's Tooth." Shortly after the tower, we come to the second junction which brings us up to the Arrow Glacier at an altitude of 16,000ft. We now continue down to the Barranco Hut at an altitude of 13,000ft. Here we rest, enjoy dinner, and overnight. Although you end the day at the same elevation as when you started, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.

    • Barranco Camp
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Barranco Camp – Barafu Camp

    After breakfast, we leave Barranco and continue on a steep ridge passing the Barranco Wall, to the Karanga Valley campsite. Then, we leave Karanga and hit the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail. We continue up to the Barafu Hut. At this point, you have completed the South Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Here we make camp, rest, enjoy dinner, and prepare for the summit day. The two peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo can be seen from this position. This journey will take 8-10 hours and is 9km long, ascending from 13,000ft to 15,000 ft.

    • Barafu Camp
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Barafu Camp to Summit down Mweka Camp

    Very early in the morning (midnight to 2am), we continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers. You head in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. At Stella Point (18,600 ft), you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see (weather permitting). From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1-hour ascent to the summit. At Uhuru Peak, you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa. Faster hikers will see the sunrise from the summit. From the summit, we now make our descent continuing straight down to the Mweka Hut camp site, stopping at Barafu for lunch. Later in the evening, we enjoy our last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.

    • Mweka Camp
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Mweka Camp – Gate Out

    A sustained descent on a well-constructed path takes us through a lovely tropical forest lively with birdsong and boasting lush undergrowth with considerable botanical interest. Our route winds down to the Kilimanjaro National Park gate at Mweka (5,400 ft); and on through coffee and banana farms to Mweka village, where we are transferred to our lodging in Arusha. [4-6 hours walking].

    • Gran Melia Hotel
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Arusha - Lake Manyara

    Pick up from your hotel in Arusha. Go for a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park which lies at the base of the East African Great Rift Valley. The northern part of the park is home to dense forest but the further south you drive the drier the landscape becomes. In this park you are most likely to see elephant, buffalo, giraffe, and large troops of baboons, impala, and sometimes even lions which have developed the habit of resting in trees to escape the annoying flies. Many flamingos find their food on the banks of the shallow soda lake while pods of hippos try to protect themselves in the water against the heat of the sun. The game drive ends shortly before sunset after which your driver takes you via steep serpentine roads up to the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands with some breathtaking views back down to the lake and across the park.

    Lake Manyara - Serengeti National Park

    The scenic road to Serengeti National Park winds through impressive montane forest along the rim of Ngorongoro Crater before descending onto the short-grass plains of the Serengeti. Along the way you can enjoy fantastic views of the caldera of Ngorongoro, some mighty extinct volcanoes, and the vast plains. Two days will be spent exploring the vast plains of the Serengeti National Park. Serengeti is a paradise for grazers. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and other animals such as zebra and Thompson gazelle are roaming through this unique eco-system on their annual migration, always followed by lions and hyenas hunting for prey. Whilst on a game drive in Serengeti National Park, you are most likely to spot elephant, buffalo, giraffe, ostrich, and many other animal and bird species. If you're lucky, you might come across cheetah hunting or leopard resting in a tree.

    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Serengeti - Ngorongoro Crater

    Today after an early breakfast, you will drive to Ngorongoro and then descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater, which is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls, the Ngorongoro Crater has the highest wild animal density worldwide. Among the species are lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. You might expect to see the ‘Big Five’ in one day. Dinner and overnight, Farms of Dream lodge.

    Ngorongoro - Arusha - Zanzibar

    After early breakfast, we leave for Arusha town. You have mid-morning flight to Zanzibar. Upon arrival in Zanzibar, you will be met by our local representative. Transfer to your hotel and after check in, you will proceed on stone town tour. Your Stone Town tour of Zanzibar will be marked by many moments of wonder as you view the charms of this old metropolis that has retained its essence, but also has favorably, albeit cautiously embraced the elements of modernization. Every nuance of its vibrant history is evident in the beautiful buildings, some that whisper about the Omani advent in Zanzibar and others that speak about the origins of Swahili architecture fused with a Persian Shirazi influence. The narrow streets are lined with many residential houses that preserve their original Swahili-Omani themes. Overnight Melia Zanzibar.

    Beach at leisure Kendwa rocks

    This beach hotel offers something for every need and budget. The relaxed Zanzibar atmosphere will mellow you down in no time. Kendwa Rocks is one hour drive from Zanzibar Town towards the northern tip of the island. The road descends to one of the most fantastic beaches of East Africa. Sunbathing may be enough but you can also do snorkeling, diving or fishing and enjoy small boat trips on the turquoise waters. Beautiful sunsets are everyday thrill and moonlighted nights on the white coral and seashell beach make an unforgettable experience. The choice of accommodation is ample. Choose a wooden bungalow with Jacuzzi, a spacious suite or family room or coral stone bungalow. The rooms are surrounded by coconut trees and lush tropical gardens.

How 2 Book Your Safari

• You make an inquiry.

• We contact you to set up an initial phone consultation (one person or whole group).

• We develop a first draft itinerary.

• Several variations are made until the perfect itinerary is reached.

• Prior to going to contract we have our office in Arusha run a comprehensive availability check on all accommodations and request provisional bookings.

• If all accommodations are available, you are sent a final contract/itinerary for signing and your deposit is due (see Terms & Conditions). If availability is not possible at some of your desired locations, we seek out alternate options prior to going to contract.

• Once you sign and return your contract, our office in Arusha submits booking vouchers and makes necessary deposits to all the accommodations to finalize the bookings.

• Signed and stamped booking vouchers are scanned and emailed to you as confirmation of your bookings.

Late Bookings

When booked well in advance (6 months or more), there is usually no problem in securing all the desired accommodations. However, when we encounter full locations, we place immediate bookings at alternate locations and then, time permitting, present these options to you for a final decision. Typically, we have been very good at getting excellent locations, even last minute. While it is true that many lodges do indeed fill up quickly, we find that rooms usually open up as the date gets closer due to the release of rooms from block bookings.

What are block bookings?

It is common for large tour operators who organize group tours to book a block of rooms in anticipation that their pre-­planned itineraries will operate at full capacity. Many lodges allow block bookings without deposit, but force the tour operators to pay for these rooms or release them as the actual dates get near (between 45 and 60 days in advance). What does this mean for a private tour? It means that sometimes it can be difficult to secure certain accommodations that cater to group tours.
