Featured DestinationsMount Kilimanjaro Climb & Serengeti Safari Extension
July 5 - 19, 2014
10-day Kilimanjaro Trek (July 5-15) with optional 5-day Safari Tour (July 15-19)
Kilimanjaro’s mystique beckons adventure seekers from around the world. The 19,341-foot high summit is a serious altitude challenge, yet a non-technical trail to the top presents one of the most attainable of the “seven summits”—Africa’s highest point. Our route is the longest and most scenic to the summit, the Lemosho Glades route. This not only lets us take in more of the mountain’s ecology and geology, we also have a better opportunity to acclimatize for the final push to the summit.
The trek is complemented by the optional five day safari extension visiting some of the most renowned wild areas in the world, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
Serengeti Safari and Kilimanjaro Culture Tour
July 14 - 26, 2014
Ultimate Serengeti Wildlife and Kilimanjaro Culture Tour
This is the trip of a lifetime to some of the most breathtaking natural environments on Earth. The heart of our trip is a visit to the legendary Serengeti National Park, a vast preserve of plains and thorn-tree savanna in the heart of Africa, home to hundreds of thousands of large grazers including wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. But we’re not just about viewing the amazing wildlife; we also engage in cultural exchanges with several of the Tanzanian tribes, including the Maasai pastoralists of the Crater Highlands and Rift Valley system and the Chagga people of Kilimanjaro.
