Are you wondering to see lions, or leopards, or cheetahs? Maybe you've been dreaming for long to experience the legendary wildebeest migration, or you want to photograph elephants at sunrise. Maybe your favorite animal is the giraffe or zebra, or... more you just can’t wait to see the rare black rhino in its natural habitat. Maybe you are more interested in viewing different species of birds. Here you have the chance to achieve all this! We offer an unique excursion to the Mount Kilimanjaro! We are Tanzania specialists, and we can drive you around the country and to the Mount Kilimanjaro like no other.  Tanzania hosts some of the last untouched places left on this planet. It is a place of vast horizons and untamed wilderness; a place of breathtaking beauty and humbling majesty. You can easily lose yourself its sweeping vistas, endless blue skies, and timeless rhythms. Tranquil yet raw, primitive yet serene – there is hardly any other place like it left on earth. The sights, smells and sounds of this place are completely unique, and may be totally different from anything you’ve ever experienced before. All the stale routines or nagging worries back home will undoubtedly begin to fade to distant memory, and quintessential Africa will captivate your senses with new vibrancy. You will lose all track of time as the sun rises and sets over the Serengeti plains. You will listen without words to the deafening chorus of grunts and the pounding of hooves as thousands of migratory wildebeest and zebra thunder past your vehicle. You will get chills as you gaze into the luminous eyes of a wild lion in his natural habitat (from the safety of your vehicle of course!) The seclusion is magical and the solitude is an inspiration to the soul. Sharing the authentic richness of Tanzania with a spouse, friends or family can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your lifetime. Why choose Tanzania? Unparalleled concentrations of wildlife – there is no African country that can compete with the sheer number and density of wild animals in Tanzania; these include lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, rhino, hippo, impala, hartebeest, eland, Thompson gazelle, baboon, vervet and blue monkeys, as well as many birds and other smaller animals Home to the Great Migration – over a million wildebeest and zebra sweep through the Serengeti plains in search of food and water in a timeless cycle More National Parks than any other African country – including two of the most renowned wildlife parks in the entire world - the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater Undiscovered and untamed wilderness, with relatively few tourists, offers a truly unique and authentic safari experience that other African countries just can’t offer – not anymore Politically stable and safe with gracious people and little crime The sunny climate and high elevation of north Tanzania ensures that you have comfortable, spring-like temperatures for wildlife viewing year round, as opposed to many lower lying areas in Africa that can get very hot and muggy Spectacular and varied scenery - imagine sweeping grasslands teeming with animals and granite kopjes baking in the sunshine; imagine glittering soda lakes covered in pink flamingos and collapsed volcanoes that look like a set from Jurassic Park; imagine towering mountains and endless blue skies - it is hard to believe that one country hosts such an incredible variety of habitats We have chosen to specialize in Tanzania, which makes us experts in the local wildlife and regions, and allows us to create a special and unique experience for our clients (as opposed to other “generalist” companies offering standard tours to many different African countries). It is our passion and honor to share this magical place with our clients. Our ongoing efforts in Tanzania include:  Developing optimal safari itineraries  Monitoring weather and wildlife movements  Training and retaining the top driver-guides  Perfecting logistics  Inspecting lodge and camp quality  Maintaining rigorous vehicle standards  Working with various wildlife conservation and research projects  Creating new and unique game drive circuits  Tracking the great wildebeest migration

Visit Tanzania and hike Mount Kilimanjaro for 6 days 5 nights Day 1: Arrival We will pick you bat the airport and transfer you to the hotel for dinner and overnight, you will meet your guide who will give the... more briefing about the next day and will check your climbing equipments. Day 2 We will drive you to Marangu Gate in the early morning and introduce you to your guides, the cook and the porters. After crossing a small river the tropical rain forest is welcoming you in all its beauty! After six km through the rainforest you reach a small wooden bridge. From there it's still two hours to go. There's time for stunning and taking photos. Leaving the tropical forest more and more giant trees are covered with mosses and lichen - we've entered the moorland and heather-zone. When you can see larger spots of green grassland between the trees you will know that Mandara-Hut is not too far. Another one and a half hour wolk and we'll be there. Dinner will be ready and served on the spot. We will have walked for about 4 hours and up to 2700m that day. Day 3 After breakfast our trail leads along the Maundi-Crater, an extinct side crater of Kili. If you'd like to climb it, go ahead. It just takes thirty minutes. We proceed to Ona-Hill, also known as 'Check Point'. From Masheo point, the peak of Ona Hill, we'll descend and ascend again to Kambi-ya-Taabu. You have made the steepest part of the day. We walk on through erikazea-heather and somehow swampy aereas to Horombo Hut. On our way we pass by the Zebra Rocks, 20m-high stony walls in black and white and a beautiful view. Enjoy the hot meal the chef prepared for you! We will have walked for about 6 hours and up to 3720m that day. Day 4 It's mainly a day for acclimatization. After breakfast you have the option to visit Zebra Rock or Saddle View. The walk to the Saddle is quite steep and takes about three and a half hours, the Zebra Rocks are not as far. You'll be back for a hot lunch to Horombo Hut Take the rest of the day to rest and listen to the stories of people returning from the Summit:) We will have walked for about 4 hours and up to 3720m that day. Day 5 Having trekked Maua moorland you can see senecio cottonii and lobelias. From Horombo-Hut we follow the trail through eroded land up to the Saddle, a stony desert on rocky ground. Walking towards the Saddle is one of the highlights of Marangu Trail. The Kibo, our goal, is direct in front of us. We will have a delicious dinner and try to rest as much as possible in the evening because we will get up in a few hours already. We will have climbed for 5-6 hours and up to 4700m that day. we rest ready for Summit. Day 6 We will rise at midnight and after a light breakfast we are ready to go. This day's climb will be quite difficult. At this height very few of us will not be suffering from altitude sickness in some form or another. We reach Gilman's Point and have a look down the crater from there. Next we pass the Hans Meyer Cave. Along the crater it's another two hours walk to the summit - you are very close to your goal and about to make an experience that will be with you for the rest of your life. after reaching Uhuru Peak, at 5895m. enjoy and take some photos before starting the decent to Horombo Hut. We will have trekked a total of 12-13 hours and be back at 3720m at the end of the day.  Day 7 The trail down through the rainforest seems familiar because we came up that way. We'll have our last farewell-lunch together on the mountain before coming back to the gate. There you will be rewarded with a certificate attesting your success at climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. There will be our car waiting for you and we'll bring you back to the comforts of your hotel in Arusha. Day 8 Departure We will transfer you to the aiport to connect your flight back home, We welcome you again in Tanzania.
