Description of Kilimanjaro summit trek and safari holiday, Tanzania

This Kilimanjaro summit trekking holiday not only allows you to ascend the world’s highest free standing mountain, but also visit three of Tanzania’s highly thought of wildlife locations, also world renowned.

Starting with the challenging aspect of the trip, with the help of porters and a support team, you will undertake your six day ascent and descent of Kilimanjaro following the Marangu Route. Because not only is it the most straight forward but it also has mountain huts along the way, meaning that you don’t have to camp en route to the iconic Uhuru peak, at 5,895m. Where, with the crater on one side and a glacier on the other, this is really worth the effort.

You then have three days to enjoy Tanzania’s extraordinary wildlife visiting three wonderful, protected areas. First, Tarangire National Park, which is one of Tanzania’s lesser known natural heritage wonders, and where you have a game drive to see its elephant herds, antelope, giraffes and lions if you are lucky. Staying at a campsite that night, you travel to Ngorongoro Crater the next day, just an hour away to this extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you will have all day to take in the crater itself, as well as its resident flamingos, hippos and elephants to name but a few.

The finale of this Kilimanjaro odyssey is at Lake Manyara National Park for another game drive, although each game drive has its unexpected joys of course. At Lake Manyara you will have a final chance to see wildebeest, baboons, zebra, elephants and, hopefully, the park’s famous tree climbing lions.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Kilimanjaro summit trek and safari holiday, Tanzania

Environment

WASTE: In Tanzania, we practice and encourage the important Leave No Trace principle. This is important in preserving the areas around the Kilimanjaro region. Reducing waste and reducing the environmental impact of tourism in this area is a big priority of our company in all the place we operate. In Tanzania we incentivize environmental stewardship in the Kilimanjaro regions by assessing all of our partner lodges based on local ownership, energy-sourcing, and waste disposal. Our lodges and partners in Tanzania go to great measures to reduce impact in this remote area. The Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania is an amazing resource and we must help to protect it so other in the future can experience this amazing mountain and region. All meals are provided with food that is sourced locally to minimize packaging and waste. Our local Tanzanian guides serve as environmental and waste reduction educators on the trail talking about the importance and dangers of not practicing waste reduction. They talk about the environmental issues that are challenging the Kilimanjaro region especially on the trails to the summit. They demonstrate and educate best practices for responsible travel to our travelers.

WATER: In Tanzania, we encourage the use of reusable bottles instead of purchasing wasteful plastic bottled water. We actively educate clients on the impact of plastic products on the remote environments of the Kilimanjaro region and the areas of the Serengeti. In the areas of Tanzania where water must be treated, we utilize ultraviolet (UV) purification systems on the trail and on the Safari areas to avoid boiling water over flame or propane when possible. Having to build a fire to boil water, or carry propane into the mountains or into the Savanna regions creates waste pollution. This ultraviolet (UV) purification systems practice eliminates tens of thousands of wasteful water bottles being purchased and discarded and that could potentially pollute the land, animals, mountains of Tanzania.

Community

FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS: With our company, we are committed to doing travel right on a Safari or trekking up Kilimanjaro. We see travel in Tanzania as one of the most effective means of investing in amazing people and places. We hire experienced local Tanzania guides from the local communities in which we operate. We follow the porter protection standards of the Kilimanjaro Porter's Assistance Project and are certified as a partner agency with KPAP (in progress). This is not only the responsible thing to do but provides a better and more authentic travel experience. We invest 10% of our total revenue in the form of microcredit to small-scale entrepreneurs in the communities of around the Kilimanjaro region. We partner with microfinance institutions that provide low-interest capital to small businesses in the regions where we operate. This is our mission, our passion, and what makes our company very unique in the travel industry.

A FAIR DEAL: In Tanzania, our company partners up with local lodge owners in Moshi, Arusha, on the trail up Kilimanjaro and on safari. We partner with Tanzanian local drivers and transport companies that employ local Tanzanian residents. We focus on partnering with other local businesses in the areas and communities we operate, to maximize the local benefit from tourism. We practice a Leave No Trace principle on all our expeditions and we incentivize environmental best practices among our partners. Our teams are locally hired within the country of Tanzania. We travel with respect and preservation of local Tanzanian customs and with that perspective in mind, we educate those who travel with us in the importance of preserving Tanzania for the Tanzanians as well as for future visitors to this unique and amazing area.
