Tour Details

This Trip features one of the popular Northern Circuit game parks.  The Tarangire and climbing of Mount Kilimanjaro via Rongai Route. With the Best of Tanzania travel in custom designed 4×4 safari vehicles with open roofs for game viewing.  This is a small group seat-in-vehicle safari with a maximum of 6 travelers per vehicle, all with window seats. Traveling for 10- days, the safari includes meals, accommodation, park entry fees and visit to Tarangire National Park & Mount Kilimanjaro. 

The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. Though gaining popularity amongst climbers, this route still experiences low crowds. Rongai has a more gradual slope than the mountain’s other routes. It is the preferred route for those looking for an alternative to the popular Marangu route, for those who would like a more remote hike, and for those who are climbing during the rainy season (the north side receives less precipitation). Rongai is a moderately difficult route, and is highly recommended, especially for those with less backpacking experience.
