Tanzania

Possibly the most diverse country Kenya is considered to be the centre of East Africa. It has numerous game reserves, huge numbers of animals and birds, mountains, rivers and beaches. The jewel in Kenya’s crown is the stunning Masai Mara which has been voted as one of the ‘Seven Natural Wonders of the World’. With around 50 tribes it is culturally diverse and promises to win a place in your heart. There are loads of fun activities to do and things to keep you busy, or you can just relax on one of Kenya’s beautiful white sandy beaches.

Mt Kilimanjaro

Highlights: High altitude trek, spectacular scenery, highland flora & fauna


Standing at 5895m, Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. It is one of the world’s most famous landmarks and is a magnificent site with her white, ice-capped rim. Sitting on the border of Tanzania and Kenya, and only 340km south of the equator, the peak is covered year-round my snow, ice and glaciers. Although scientists are predicting that the glaciers will have disappeared by 2020 due to solar radiation.

Climbing this mountain is no small task and climbers need to be adequately prepared with the right equipment and adequate fitness. Although it is not a technical climb, altitude can affect people (usually once higher than 3000m) so we recommend a six day trek to allow for acclimatisation. Taking it ‘pole pole’ (slowly) will maximise your chances of reaching the top!
