Description of Kilimanjaro Climb and Tanzania Safari

A fantastic trip combining climbing Kilimanjaro with the chance to witness The Great Migration where annually over 2 million herbivores journey across the plains of Tanzania. You will also visit some of Tanzania's most stunning safari parks including the world famous Ngorongoro Crater.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is one of the world's greatest mountain adventures and unlike other peaks it can be climbed without technical skills by anyone who is fit and has loads of determination. The route and proposed itinerary below are an open group package. However, you can also tailor-make every aspect of your climb and safari, with private safari programs available from 2 to 7 days.

On this trip we use the Lemosho route to climb Kilimanjaro from the South West. This route has a great success rate and offers wonderfully varied and spectacular scenery. Trekking up through six successive climate zones this route to climb Kilimanjaro provides excellent acclimatisation and the easiest final night's climb.

After descending from Kilimanjaro you transfer to Arusha for the second part of your trip visiting all the great safari parks in Tanzania's northern circuit, including a visit to the Serengeti to see the wildebeest migration. All our safaris are small group trips with your own guide and 4x4 Toyota Landcruiser.

Our prices include airport transfers, hotel accommodation before and after you climb Kilimanjaro, all the park fees, your guides and porters and all your food on the climb. Accommodation on safari is full board in a mixture of safari lodges and tented camps.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
This trip combines a fantastic climb up Kilimanjaro with the chance to witness the spectacular wildebeest migration. Both parts of this trip are run in line with the guidelines of the Leave No Trace Organisation.

The key things that are important are:
• We are committed to the enjoyment, health and protection of Kilimanjaro and the safari parks
• We believe that education is the best means to protect Kilimanjaro and Tanzania’s safari parks and we ensure all our guides understand how important this is and what they need to do to protect the environment
• We believe that practicing the Leave No Trace principles is the most relevant and effective long-term solution to maintaining the beauty, health of, and access to these natural lands

In practise this is what we do:
• We operate in small groups to minimise the impact of large trekking groups
• All trash is packed out for recycling or disposal
• All cooking is done on kerosene stoves
• All drinking water is treated and given to clients in refillable bottles
• We provide private tented toilets to ensure all waste is controlled and disposed of safely
• No washing is allowed in stream - clients are provided with water for washing that is disposed of well away from any water source
• Water use is minimised at all camp sites
• We use only lodges that operate to high standards of environmental care
• All our vehicles are properly maintained to ensure minimal pollution

The Lemosho route is fantastic for wildlife as the ascent takes you on a climatic journey from the tropics to the arctic. All our guides are highly knowledgeable about the wildlife on Kilimanjaro and are able to explain all the changes you will see. The safari route allows the very best opportunities to witness the wildebeest migration close up and to see the wildlife in the best safari parks. For anyone interested in nature this is the perfect trip.

The Impacts of this Trip

All aspects of this trip are organised to benefit the local economy and people of Tanzania.
The most important thing we do on the climb is to pay all our crew well. We are members of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project http://www.kiliporters.org/ and the International Porter Projection Project http://ippg.net/ and we maintain very high standards of welfare for all our guides and porters covering wages, clothing, accommodation, food and tips. KPAP have recommended tip levels for all climbs which we recommend to all our clients.

All of the staff we employ in Tanzania are local: we do not employ any non local guides or administrative staff so that more of the money you pay goes back into the local economy. Overall we employ some 40 climbing guides, 6 safari guides, 17 cooks and 400 porters. We use and support local hotels such as Bristol Cottages and Parkview Inn and local transport providers again ensuring the maximum benefit to the local people. All of the lodges we use are locally owned, such as Country Lodge. We pay park fees of $50 per park for each guest and these fees are the main source of income for helping maintain the environment within the parks.

As well as helping clients summit Kilimanjaro we encourage them to visit locally run community projects such as Mulala Village and the Stella Maris Primary School.

Mulala village is a traditional Maasai village where the people are working collaboratively to use tourism to fund improvements in health and education for all the village people. Stella Maris primary school is supported by the Mailisita Foundation and provides schooling for orphans and vulnerable children.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


12 out of 12 of the climbers reached the Summit of Uhuru Peak. Wonderful teamwork and support from our Guides & Porters.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Prepare by doing a lot of incline hiking along rock terrain, Kili will not be a "walk through", it is challenging.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, our guides & porters were all local people and they cared about their job -- this was demonstrated in the way they treated us: always helping and caring
about our needs.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


The best! So happy with the operator!
