KEY FEATURES:

Tanzania, Zanzibar

Best season: June - October, December - March



Восхождение на высочайшую вершину Африки – вулкан Килиманджаро (пик Ухуру, 5895 м). Помимо того, что Килиманджаро является одним из высочайших вулканов в мире, он же носит звание самой высокой отдельно стоящей горы на планете

7-дневный трекинг, который начинается в экваториальных джунглях, а завершается на «крыше Африки», на высоте облаков, где еще лежит ледяная шапка Кили, которая, как считают ученые, через 20 лет исчезнет. Восхождение не требует специальной подготовки, ночевки на лоне природы в горных приютах и палатках

Сафари в национальном парке Серенгети – самом большом национальном парке, представляющим собой уникальную экосистему, где миллионные стада антилоп гну, зебр и газелей мигрируют из года в год в след за дождями в поисках сочной травы. Апогеем Великой миграции является переход травоядными рек Мара и Грумети, где их поджидают крокодилы и другие изголодавшиеся хищники.

Расположенный на земле масаев уникальный национальный парк в кратере древнего вулкана Нгоронгоро – природное чудо света, место обитания всей «Большой африканской пятерки»

(если указано в программе) Исчезающее (менее 800 человек) племя бушменов хадзабе, застрявших в каменном веке. Поражающая воображение первобытная утренняя охота с луками и стрелами
