Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro Climb Kilimanjaro Climb

Your Kilimanjaro Climb on the Superior option will be a truly unspoilt wilderness experience. During the first and second day you will steadily be climbing up the through the lower foothills of the mountain in exciting terrain ranging from rain forests, heather and moorland landscapes. On the third day you'll start to enter what is known as the alpine zone where the air is dry, but the views are spectacular at this height. By "walking high" and "sleeping low" throughout your trek and going at a slow and steady pace with your experienced mountain guides you'll be acclimatizing very well before your summit bid. The final push for the summit begins at midnight and you'll reach the crater rim as the sun rises. You will be standing on the Roof of Africa in the dawn light realizing a dream. Having summitted and taken some incredible photographs you'll descend the mountain with one more night in the lower foothills before collecting your certificate the following morning from the National Parks Authority.

Four days exploring the North Serengeti Four days exploring the North Serengeti

Spend your days mostly exploring the northern section of the Serengeti on safari tracking the great array of game and wildlife that this vast area offers. If you're there at the right time for the great migration (depending on the season), this is the region where the herds are at their most concentrated because the North Serengeti forms the border with the Famous Maasai Mara of Kenya, and it’s where (if you’re lucky) you’ll see the infamous river crossings. It’s also an area of untamed natural beauty, of rolling hills, rivers, forests and open plains. We can suggest the best camp for you, based on your preference s and what you’re looking to get out of your experience here.

Game drives in the Serengeti Game drives in the Serengeti

You'll have the assistance of expert guides who will bring you on thrilling wildlife activities including walking safaris, off-road experiences and game drives so you can witness the huge herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle - as well as the predators that follow them - as you explore the diverse and spectacular landscape of this magnificent ecosystem.

Hot air balloon safari over the Serengeti Hot air balloon safari over the Serengeti

As an optional extra, you can enjoy a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti. In the early morning, you'll take off, rising with the sun and float in whichever direction the winds take you. Your pilot will control the altitude of your balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At times you may ascend to 1000 ft or more to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti.
