Our preferred way up Kilimanjaro, the Machame route, has provided us with an extremely high success rate. The route begins from the south, then heads east, traversing underneath Kilimanjaro’s southern ice field before summiting. The Machame route is scenically beautiful and varied. As we traverse the flanks of Kilimanjaro, we will walk through six different Eco-zones. The beautiful foliage and stunning scenery add to the mystique of this great mountain. Your efforts will be rewarded with an incredible sense of accomplishment upon reaching the “Roof of Africa”. Our Serengeti Safari of the Great Rift Valley is a journey steeped both in cultural exploration and wildlife immersion. This luxurious adventure takes us through several National Parks, including: Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Diverse animal and plant life can be seen throughout the journey. You will also have an opportunity to experience varied cultures in these precious areas.
