There are more ways to experience Tanzania’s most famous mountain than summiting it! Trek through the foothills of Kilimanjaro for an incredibly authentic cultural and wilderness experience, propelled by your own feet through this incredible region. This 4-day hike through the Chagga villages and forest on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro explores the stunning natural beauty and local culture of Kilimanjaro. As you walk you will be amazed by the beauty of the surrounding landscape, from Uhuru Peak – the Roof of Africa – above, to the encircling mountain rainforest, the waterfalls and rivers lining the valleys, farm plots full of coffee and banana trees, maize fields, pastures, wildflowers, and the magnificent views of the sweeping plains below.
The path passes through the land of the Chagga people, who for centuries have cultivated this fertile mountain paradise. Walking on local footpaths used to access farm fields, forests, and to cross from one ridge to another, you discover a part of Tanzania few tourists ever see. Your qualified Chagga mountain guide acts also as cultural interpreter, ready to answer your questions while pointing out sights of interest along the way. Tent camp under the stars overnight, eating locally inspired meals from your expert mountain chef.
Top your off-the-beaten-path hiking adventure with three days on safari in the world famous Serengeti, seeking out big cats, the Great Migration and dozens of iconic safari species and astounding bird life. You will have the special experience of being guided by a local wildlife biologist at your authentic tented camp.
