Your Tanzania adventure kicks off with a Kilimanjaro climb via the Machame Route. The itinerary has been prepared to allow more time for acclimatization and rest, thereby raising the success rate for making it to the summit. Bring your gear, your enthusiasm, and your smile – we’ve got the rest! The hike takes you through the heather and moorland zone of the Shira Plateau and up the Barranco Wall. Spend six days in the mountain before heading back to Moshi.

The safari starts on Day 8 with a trip to Lake Manyara. Then travel to the famous Serengeti via the Olduvai Gorge. It was in this gorge that some of the earliest human fossils and footprints were first discovered. Next on the itinerary is the stunning Ngorongoro Crater followed by Tarangire National Park. We will drive you back to Moshi on Day 12.

Included in the tour price is one night's accommodation before Day 1 as well as a stay in Moshi on Day 12. For more details, please scroll down to the itinerary section.

Excellent Sights of both Mountain & Plains!
“I booked the 12 day combo package; first a climb up kilimanjaro (tent camping) and then a truck tour of the serengeti national park. PROS:- Our Mountain Guide, Jafari ("Rafiki" was his nickname), had GREAT english. Very fun to chat with.- My wife and I got to see a lion take down an antelope, very exciting!- Food on the mountain was 3.5/5, food in safari hotels was 5/5.CONS:- Airport pickup was confusing. We arrived at night, and it was difficult at first to find our Kopa Tours pickup lady.- Some hotels only had single pillows. I prefer to sleep with two.”

Trip of a lifetime!
“I went to climb Kilimanjaro with a decent amount of worry - worried that I might not make it to the top, worried about the strenuous hiking, just all of it. I climbed with Kopa Tours again not really knowing what to expect. However, an employee named Kellie kept in touch with me every step of the way and called me before my flight and we talked through my concerns. I summited the mountain successfully. Along the way, the staff was incredible. Everyone I have met has been extremely professional and kind. A trip to remember forever!”

Other Practical InformationTanzania has two wet seasons, from March to May and November to December. The March to May season is often called the 'long rains' while November and December fall within the 'short rains' period. Dry seasons last from June to October and January to February. However, once in the mountain, you will face a multitude of climate conditions regardless of the season. This is due to the five distinct climate zones on Mount Kilimanjaro. No time is a bad time for a Tanzanian safari adventure! Every season has something unique to offer. The dry season from June and October is generally considered to be the best time for wildlife viewing, with the famous wildebeest migration being considered the absolute pinnacle of dry season wildlife viewing. But wet seasons have much to offer as well, since this is when you have the best chances of seeing newborn animals! The calving season for wildebeests is from February to March, when over 8,000 calves are born each day.
