How to choose your trip to Tanzania
One of Africa's top destinations, Tanzania offers a wealth of options for adventure travellers. The most popular safari tours focus on the famous attractions in the north of the country (including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater) while southern Tanzania offers vast, unspoilt reserves far from the tourist crowds. The country's other main attraction lies in conquering Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, with various routes available below. Many trips to Tanzania will finish in the paradise island of Zanzibar. Tanzania is also one of the key stops on overland journeys through Africa - either combining the safaris of the east of the continent or along the epic Great African Journey.
Tours of Kili - Shira Route
With over 200 holidays to choose from, KE Adventure Travel has one of the very best collections of trekking and walking holidays worldwide. Graded on a scale from 1 to 12, we have holidays to suit everyone. Our tougher treks are likely to involve multi-day hikes through wilderness regions, with porter support and tented accommodation. Whilst at the other end of the scale, our softer walking holidays are more likely to be hotel or lodge-based with a day-walk format and an emphasis on uncovering the area's history, culture and cuisine. From our earliest days we've developed a range of treks that include celebrated classics such as Peru's Inca Trail trek, the ascent of Tanzania's Kilimanjaro and the ever popular Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal. Alongside these, we have always made it a priority to seek out distinctive and unique itineraries in less familiar areas such as Armenia, Cameroon, Madagascar and Burma. Whichever of our trekking or walking holidays you choose to undertake, you can be sure you'll enjoy breaking out of your day-to-day routine and exploring exotic landscapes on foot, with the chance to experience different cultures.
Trekking to Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro
11 days from £2845 excl. flights*
On this double peak holiday we acclimatise with a trek to the summit of Mount Meru before moving on to climb Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. As well as being a worthy objective in its own right, the ascent of Mount Meru prior to tackling Kilimanjaro means that you will be well acclimatised and this will ensure that your experience in Tanzania is remembered as a holiday rather than a feat of endurance. Flying in to Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania, gives us speedy access to Mount Meru (4566m). Our ascent of this dormant volcano involves a wonderful 4-day trek, leading through pleasant game-filled parkland and then bamboo forest and moorland, to the dramatic crater rim. Here, we can look across with a sense of anticipation to snow-capped Kilimanjaro, 70 kilometres away to the east. Before transferring to Kilimanjaro, we enjoy a game drive in the Arusha National Park, an outstandingly beautiful nature reserve where we can expect to see elephant, buffalo, giraffe, antelope and numerous bird species. Having acclimatised on Meru, we will be in good shape to enjoy the ascent of Kilimanjaro, following the picturesque Machame route to the Shira Plateau from where we make our final ascent directly to the 'Roof of Africa'.
