Other highlights while on safari include huge herds of elephants in Tarangire National Park and abundant birdlife at Lake Manyara. You will then be excited and ready for the challenge ahead. The sight of the permanent snow-capped peak of Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m) provides a constant source of inspiration when viewed from the vast plains below. While the ascent does not require any technical climbing, the trails are demanding and a sound level of fitness and an ability to acclimatise are essential pre-requisites before attempting the summit.

This route retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north east. From the alluring summit of Uhuru Peak (5895m) we will have amazing 360° views of the surrounding plains.
