Eco — Adventure – Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro
Eco- Adventure – Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro
(Trek In/Trek Out)
All year - Best December & January
(Possible combination with Zanzibar or a safari)
Rising from the endless savannah, Mt. Kilimanjaro, offers the visitor a unique opportunity to combine the highlights of the wildlife safari with an ascent to the Roof of Africa.
While camping options are available, we have elected the Morangu route and built our option around “hut” type accommodation for the convenience of the visitor. With prior notice, the itinerary can also be extended an extra day in the case of the necessity of the visitor to acclimatize due to the altitude.
