Description

5 Days Kilimanjaro and Serengeti Safari

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a challenging but rewarding experience. The trek to the summit typically takes 5 to 7 days and offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano and is composed of three distinct volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. Hikers will pass through various terrains, from dense rainforests to moorlands, and will experience drastic changes in temperature and altitude. The hike to the summit is not technical, but it does require physical fitness and mental determination. Those who reach the summit will be rewarded with an incredible sense of achievement and awe-inspiring views of the sunrise over the African continent.

The Serengeti National Park is home to some of the world’s most iconic wildlife, including the big five: elephants, lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, and Cape buffalos. The park is also famous for its annual wildebeest migration, where millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles migrate across the park’s vast plains in search of food and water. A safari through the Serengeti offers the opportunity to see these incredible animals in their natural habitat, as well as other species such as cheetahs, hyenas, giraffes, and various species of antelope.

A Kilimanjaro and Serengeti safari is a unique and unforgettable experience that offers the chance to witness some of Africa’s most stunning natural wonders. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a first-time adventurer, climbing Kilimanjaro and exploring the Serengeti is an adventure that will stay with you for a lifetime.

    The safari + Zanzibar tour my family took in Tanzania in late August 2023 was one of the most memorable vacations we have had in many years. Thank you Amin for your thoughtful arrangements and care throughout before and during and after the trip. The local guide is experienced and made genuine efforts to fill our trip with many exciting sightings. Seeing the cheetah hunting and kill, the wildebeest crossing were the absolute highlights, so good that we can even ignore the underwhelming rhinos visit…
    Highly recommend Amin and this group to anyone who wants to go on a safari tour.
