The 9 days Lemosho Route is one of the lengthiest, most picturesque routes on Kilimanjaro and it is our ‘secret favourite’. You will travel through tranquil trails that feature scenic grandeur. In the rainforest the exquisiteness of dawn’s light pierces the lush, emerald sward. Mist embraces the lichen coated bark and the melodic piping of a songbird splits the silence whilst the distinctive blue monkeys swing above. This leads to the smooth surfaces of the stunning Shira Plateau and the magnificent sight of the looming Lava Tower. Barranco Valley provides beautiful sights of the azure glaciers. Vast plains of Savannah are decorated with splotches of wildlife and there is a possibility of encountering elephants or buffalo.

The Complete Northern Circuit Safari captures the magic of Africa by combining brilliant landscapes with spectacular wildlife. Giant is the word that best represents the Tarangire National Park from the numerous herds of African elephants to the colossal termite mounds and the ancient baobab trees. The Lake Manyara National Park was blessed with phenomenal biodiversity of habitat and wildlife and Arusha National Park is home to the infamous Mount Meru. We have two of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders – the lush caldera that contains the Ngorongoro Crater and the ultimate safari destination, the Serengeti National Park. The national parks and conservation areas of the Northern Circuit Safari will surpass every expectation that you have set for this trip.

The 8 days Marangu Route is favoured by many due to the obvious nature of the path and its gradual incline increase. Are you willing to sacrifice the comfort of sleeping in a bed? Don’t fret, the Marangu Route is the only route that offers accommodation. The sleeping huts resemble dormitories and each bunk bed is equipped with a sponge mattress and pillow. Bathrooms and running water are available at the lower huts. Kibo uses a basic latrine system and buckets of water are available. The 8 days Marangu Route is highly recommended by experts due to the extra acclimatisation day. All hikers eat their breakfast and evening meals in a dining hut and this creates an enjoyable, social atmosphere.
