TESTIMONIALS OF OUR CLIENTS
FROM PREVIOUS EXPEDITIONS TO TANZANIA:

KEY FEATURES:

Tanzania, Zanzibar

Best season: June - October, December - March


Climbing the highest peak of the mountain - Mount Kilimanjaro (peak Uhuru, 5895 m). In addition to being one of the highest volcanoes in the world, Kilimanjaro also holds the title of the most exceptional standing mountain on the planet.

A 7-day trek that starts in the equatorial jungle and ends at the "roof of the clouds", at the height of the clouds, where the Kili ice cap still lies, which is believed to disappear in 20 years. Climbing does not require special training, spending the night in lonely nature in mountain shelters and tents

Safari in the Serengeti National Park - the largest national park, which is a unique ecosystem, where millions of herds of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles migrate from year to year in the wake of the rains in search of succulent grass. The apogee of the Great Migration is the crossing of the Mara and Grumeti rivers by the herbivores, where crocodiles and other hungry predators await them.

Located on the land of the Maasai, a unique national park in the crater of the ancient volcano Ngorongoro is a natural wonder of the world, the habitat of the entire "Big African Five"

Acquaintance with the culture and life of the Maasai tribe
