Unforgettable trip
5 - Excellent
  • Innocent Colman
“"From the moment I contacted the agency, the tour agency's staff demonstrated a high level of professionalism and attentiveness. They promptly responded to my inquiries, providing detailed information and addressing any concerns I had. Throughout the Kilimanjaro trek, their support staff, including porters and cooks, was incredibly hardworking, ensuring that our needs were met and that we had comfortable accommodations and nourishing meals. The level of teamwork and dedication displayed by the entire staff was truly remarkable. The agency's commitment to providing top-notch equipment and logistics was evident throughout the trek. From quality camping gear to delicious meals prepared at high altitudes, they left no stone unturned in ensuring our comfort and well-being. The campsite setups were well-organized, and the availability of essential amenities, such as clean water and sanitary facilities, added to the overall positive experience. "”

“The guide Eric and the porters were all incredibly kind and helpful throughout the trek. This ensured I was in the best possible frame of mind and body for summit night. The route itself is scenic and offers gradual acclimatization.”
Incredible tour - especially thanks to the great team
5 - Excellent
  • Stephan Gnther Helmut Dengler
“We did the Lemosho route over the turn of the year, accompanied by our guides Raymond and Gilibert and their strong Porter-Team. At first, we weren't quite sure whether four "lowland-Indians" like us Germans would be able to conquer the almost 6,000 meter-high Kilimanjaro, but we decided to do on this adventure. Thanks to the incredibly warm and friendly nature of our team (I'll never forget Raymond looking in my eyes saying "My brother from another mother" ?), who always gave us their full support and stood by us physically and mentally, we managed it. I can only wish all interested parties an incredibly strong and supportive guide-duo like we had, then "Kill the Kili" is no longer just a saying but reality. Thank you very much — we will never forget that journey ❤”

Tanzania Solo Travel

Solo travel in Tanzania can be an incredibly rewarding and memorable experience. Here are some of the best solo trips to consider:

  • Solo trip to Mount Kilimanjaro: Climbing Kilimanjaro is a popular activity for solo travelers seeking adventure in Tanzania. Join a professional mountain crew who will help you accomplish your climbing goal. Besides breathtaking views, Kilimanjaro climbing presents various challenges, terrains, and weather conditions, so it is a good idea to have an experienced team with you. The journey to the summit usually takes five to nine days, depending on the route you take, and it is alright even if you do not have prior climbing experience.
  • Fully guided private solo expedition to Mount Meru: Join experienced guides to explore the beauty of Mount Meru on a trek through lush forests and scenic moorlands. Mount Meru is the second-highest peak in Tanzania and the perfect place for a peaceful trekking experience. As most travelers in Tanzania choose to trek Kilimanjaro, you will find Meru trek less crowded. The mountain is located within Arusha National Park, where you can also spot wildlife inhabiting the area.
  • Solo travel to the North Circuit Safari: A North Circuit Safari in Tanzania allows solo travelers to tour the Serengeti National Park. Follow the Great Wildebeest Migration, where millions of wildebeest and zebras move across the savanna plains. Take a trip to the Ngorongoro Crater, a natural wonder and home to a diverse range of wildlife. With breathtaking landscapes and unforgettable animal encounters, this safari is ideal for adventurous solo travelers. Enjoy an exclusive tour of the national parks at your own pace and intimate wildlife encounters, which are not possible in large group tours.

Solo tour in Tanzania based on budget

Luxury Solo Travel in Tanzania: Solo travelers seeking luxury tours in Tanzania can combine world-class accommodation with exclusive tours and activities.

Tanzania luxury solo tours offer unforgettable insight into the country’s rich culture and wildlife.

Budget Solo Travel in Tanzania: Due to the private nature of solo travel, it is generally more expensive than group tours.
