This comprehensive journey through one of East Africa's most diverse countries and gives us the opportunity to experience the best of its many highlights. We travel from the snow-capped heights of mighty Kilimanjaro, through to the rich game lands of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro and on to the tranquil shores of Zanzibar's Spice Islands. Starting from the north side of the mountain close to the Kenyan border, the Rongai route is considered to be the easiest camping route up Kilimanjaro with gentle gradients and short daily stages. Affording spectacular views of the broad, flat Maasai plains during the ascent, the summit is reached via the east side of Kibo. Followed by a safari to arguably the two most famous gamelands in East Africa and time spent relaxing on the spice island of Zanzibar this is indeed the ultimate Tanzanian experience.
