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.

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.
