End of Tour
A country that boasts Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar, to say nothing of Mikumi Reserve, the Usambara Mountains and Mt Meru, is a country to be recognised both in terms of wildlife and beauty. For many it is the ultimate safari destination.
The Serengeti is home to the extraordinary migration and to be there in the early months of the year is always rewarding. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world. To stand astride Uhuru peak watching the dawn is a remarkable achievement. The climb is tough but not technical and we use the Lemosho and Rongai, the least trekked trails on the mountain. As a contrast to the exciting game areas and the mountain, Zanzibar is a beautiful jewel in the Indian Ocean. With a fascinating spice and slaving legacy, the crumbling Stonetown has streets full of character, and the beaches on the north and east coast are stunning. Whether it is diving, snorkelling, fishing, swimming with dolphins or just relaxing Zanzibar has few if any equals.
