Located in Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, with a summit of 19,341 feet (5.895 meters). It is a top destination for adventure travelers and is a hike that requires no specific mountain climbing skills other than perseverance and endurance. While attaining the summit of Kilimanjaro can in and of itself be an incredible trip, an optional pairing with a wildlife safari or relaxation on the beaches of Zanzibar to follow is ideal. Let us plan your trek up Kilimanjaro and host your extended travels beyond the mountain.


Serengeti National Park is the largest national park in the northern circuit of Tanzania, with a landmass of 14,750 square km (5700 sq miles). The fact that it was awarded Africa’s top national park in 2019 comes as no surprise, as its endless plains set the scene for some of the most incredible sunrises, sunsets and daytime viewing of wildlife. The Serengeti plays host to one of the 7th Wonders of Africa – the Great Wildebeest Migration, wherein massive herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle can be seen traversing long distances in search of green pastures for grazing. A nature lover and photographers dream – including the Serengeti in your African safari is a cannot miss experience.


The Masai Mara Game Reserve, a 1,510 km2 (580 sq mi) reserve located in south-western Kenya, forms the northern border of the Sergengeti-Mara ecosystem and as such is a fantastic place to witness the Great Wildebeest migration. With breathtaking views of the treacherous Mara River crossing in the fall, the Masai Mara Game Reserve is an ideal location to view a wide variety of wildlife in a smaller geographic footprint.


Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, located in Uganda, is renowned for gorilla tracking. In fact around 400 gorillas, an estimated half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas, reside within this park. In addition to gorilla trekking, there is excellent birding, hiking, cultural experiences and wildlife viewing with the forest.


The pristine white sand beaches and clear blue waters of the Zanzibar Islands provide the ideal locale for rest and relaxation, whether it is a trip unto itself or the end to an amazing adventure in Africa.
