Discover The Best of Tanzania: Arusha - Tarangire National Park - Ngorongoro Crater - Serengeti National Park Circuit


Mt. Kilimanjaro is a mystery adorned in clouds and its magnificent snowy peaks stand imperious, overseeing the entire content. Not only is this the highest peak in Africa, but also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, and those who conquer it rightfully earn their climbing certificates - and their incredible memories.

The Lemosho Route is considered the most scenic trail on Kilimanjaro, granting visitors panoramic vistas and walks through pristine rainforest, with a good chance of seeing wildlife. Some come to conquer this winter wonderland of ice and snow, and stand on the roof of Africa.

Day 1: Arusha

Upon arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be welcomed and transferred to Arusha.

Day 3: Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, you’ll spend the entire day exploring the hilly landscapes of Tarangire, weaving in and out of dense bush, iconic Baobab trees, and high grasses as you go in search of the park’s astounding range of wildlife.

Drive along the banks of the meandering Tarangire River, where elephants, giraffe, and other animals congregate in the golden light of late afternoon, reminding you why this park is arguably one of East Africa’s last discovered jewels. Return to your lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.

At dusk, your exploration of this paradise ends and you’ll return to your camp for sundowners, dinner, and another overnight stay.
