Mount Kilimanjaro Route
This is what Tanzania has to offer
Tanzania is a fascinating country with diverse landscapes – majestic summits, clear lakes and mighty streams, lush rainforest and open savannahs. These often unspoiled areas form unique habitats for a large variety of animals as well as over 1000 bird species. Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m) is the highest mountain in Africa and Mt Meru the ninth highest. The Serengeti National Park with its endless savannah and Ngorongoro Crater (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) both offer unbelievable game viewing while the islands of Pemba and Zanzibar are perfect for relaxing, swimming and diving after a bush safari.
Almost as multifaceted as the Tanzanian landscape, are the people and their culture. Over 120 tribes with their own traditional languages and rites live together harmoniously in Tanzania.
If you are looking for a challenge, Mt Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa, is here for you to conquer. Explore the Tarangire in search of its huge elephant herds, gaze upon the pink glow of flamingos on the shore of Lake Manyara or be astounded by the abundance of wildlife inside the Ngorongoro Crater, a collapsed volcano. The famous endless plains of the Serengeti will take your breath away and you will doze off listening to the deep roar of the lions roaming past your campsite.
Prefer to travel off the beaten track? Consider the less visited parks in southern Tanzania – Mikumi National Park, Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park or Udzungwa Mountains National Park or book a trekking trip in the Ngorongoro Highlands.
