Hike the Lower Slope of Mount Kilimanjaro

No trip to Tanzania is complete without a trip to Mount Kilimanjaro. You’ll find this looming beauty just over 300 kilometres south of the equator on the northern Tanzanian boundary. At a staggering 5,895 metres high, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and one of the continent’s most popular and mesmerising sights. The formation is so vast, it influences the climate and in turn, the area’s vegetation and wildlife.

On this trip, you’ll get to see the highest free-standing mountain in the world for yourself and hike the lower slopes. You’ll be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, where you’ll make your way to the base of the mountain. Once you’ve been briefed, you’ll spend the next two hours hiking up the lower slopes of the mountain where you’ll eventually reach a scenic viewpoint. You’ll stop here for a picnic lunch while you take in the tremendous views, before making your way back down the mountain.

When people think of Tanzania, they think of the Serengeti National Park, they think of David Attenborough narrating over a stalking cheetah. Tanzania simply embodies safari. You can also visit the vibrant 'safari city', known as Arusha. I bought some beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand-made glasses here, which were crafted by people with learning disabilities. This great social enterprise is known as Shanga, and you can visit here during your stay and learn how everything is made.
