17 Days Serengeti Migration ( Mara River Crossing Experience) & Kilimanjaro Climb, 2019

This trip offers incomparable game viewing with a chance to witness the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration crossing the Mara River, game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater, with evening relaxation at excellent quality authentic tented camps in the African bush 

Kilimanjaro Climb

Lemosho is our favourite route up Mt Kilimanjaro. It is not crowded, offers stunning scenery and has a very high summit success rate. Unlike the popular Machame route which crosses at the Shira Plateau, Lemosho route traverses the whole plain from west to east through a gentle hike, it also rewards you with better views.

Duration: 8 Days trekking; 6 and a half days ascending, 1 and a half days descending. 70 km/44 mi total; 48 km/30 mi to summit; 22 km/14 mi descend from summit, Elevation:  4,4505 m/14,780 ft net gain; 3,915 m/12,845 ft descend
