Tour Tips
  • Tanzania enjoys a mostly tropical climate, but pack extra-warm clothing if trekking Mount Kilimanjaro. The highest point in Africa gets cold in any season.
  • Choose a Mount Kilimanjaro tour suitable to your conditioning.
  • There are seven main ways to the top of the peak -- Lemosho Route, Machame Route, Marangu Route, Mweka Route, Rongai Route, Shira Route and Umbwe Route -- and they vary significantly in length and difficulty.
  • Many tours of Mount Kilimanjaro offer add-on trips to view wildlife at Serengeti National Park. When choosing any Tanzania tour, look for one with the amount of cultural immersion that matches your comfort level – there’s something for everyone.
  • Want to spend some time at an Indian Ocean beach? Consider a tour offering the island of Zanzibar (the “Zan” in Tanzania), just off the coast of the mainland but a world apart from the rest of the country.
  • Interested in tours experiencing Victoria Falls, the largest sheet of falling water on the planet? Many Tanzania tours also include this nearby natural wonder, situated between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
  • Accommodations vary on Tanzania vacation packages, so find a tour that offers lodgings that meet your standards.
  • Like a bit of urban adventure? Tanzania’s largest city, Dar es Salaam, was founded in 1862 and today offers a kaleidoscope of sites.

Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route and Safari

Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route & Safari

5.0 August 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes Great trek to the 'Roof of Africa' followed by a enthralling safari taking in
the Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge and the Serengeti.
Standing on the summit of Kilimanjaro was amazing and Summit day was the
hardest piece of trekking I have ever done - quite literally breaktaking! But
there were great views and experiences along the way too - a stunning view
from Shira Cathedral of Kilimanjaro, Mt Meru and the Shira plateau and I
loved climbing the Barranco Wall and then discovering an absolutely
delightful valley a little later the same day - it was my favourite day of
trekking - I loved it! The view of the Ngorongoro crater from the view point
on the crater's edge was astounding and the Olduvai Gorge - the cradle of
mankind - was incredible. And on Safari the sights and sounds both day and
night were magical at times. We saw so many different animals and birds that
I lost count.


Meke our group leader was fantastic. So cheerful and encouraging and showing
real concern for all of us. I would not have made it to the summit without
him and the other guides in our group (Wilfried and Said), they were great.


Some physical preparation before the trip will pay off and make the whole
trek more enjoyable. Listen to your guides - they are experts and know what
they are talking about.
You don't need to change your currency to Shillings, US dollars are accepted
everywhere that you go on this trip, just make sure they are newish.
The drive across the Serengeti was very, very bumpy - just be prepared for
it, after all it is a Safari in Africa.
Be prepared to come home dirty and dusty but very happy!


I have just had the time of my life! Everything was well organised, trouble
free and I always felt safe and looked after - without being molly-coddled. I
can't wait to do another trip and would definitely book with Exodus again.

Kilimanjaro by lemosho and safari

Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route & Safari

5.0 August 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes The climb and safari exceeded our expectations. Yes Africa worked it's magic
but the local Exodus staff did a brilliant job to make experiencing it easy!
Dawn on the rim of the crater.


Charles on Kilimanjaro was excellent. Knew his stuff and organised his team
with quiet efficiency. Also supportive of all his customers, and helped us
achieve our goals. 100 per cent to the roof of Africa was not a surprise.


A bit of fitness before hand helps. Know your kit. Listen to your guides,
there knowledge is vast and they want to share it!


Exodus flight arrangements could be better. Why were we given a 7 hour
changeover at Heathrow on the way back when there was an earlier flight with
a still generous 3 hour transfer which others were offered? When we found
this out we could not change with BA.
Outbound through Addis there was no food or drinks in transit. This should
be flagged in advance.

Great guide!

6 Days Kilimanjaro Climb – Lemosho Route

5.0 July 2017 Eastland Adventures Recommend: Yes Great guide. Very knowledgeable. Took a day hike in Kilimanjaro, waterfalls, and coffee tour.

This was my third trip to Africa (second with G Adventures), and it pretty much topped the list

Safari in Kenya & Tanzania

5.0 April 2017 G Adventures Recommend: Yes This was my third trip to Africa (second with G Adventures), and it pretty much topped the list. I went to see animals, and boy did I ever see animals!!! Kenya and Tanzania outdo South Africa by a long shot as far as wildlife goes. The Masai Mara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater were teeming with practically every African animal you can think of .... and were they ever active! And the hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti was a once-in-a-lifetime experience --- worth every penny!! Congratulations to G for not only coming up with a fascinating itinerary, excellent accommodations, and knowledgeable CEOs and drivers, but for their support of local projects in most of the countries they work in. Lead with Service, Embrace the Bizarre (can you say 'ostrich courtship'--), and Do the Right Thing .... that's my memory of Kenya and Tanzania. Read more

Classic Tanzania Safari

5.0 April 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes This was not only our first trip with Exodus but our first safari and we were not disappointed. We were well looked after and our leader and drivers were extremely knowledgable which made for a very enjoyable and interesting trip. It was a busy schedule visiting four different areas, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and finally Tarangire Safari Park, each one slightly different. Our group were in two Land Cruisers on Game Drives every day, we could sit and enjoy the scenery and stop to watch an amazing amount of wildlife. It was a privilege to see the wildebeest migrating it was amazing to see them across the plains on the Serengeti as far as the eye could see; a photograph just couldn't capture the image, you had to just spend time looking at the view. I would certainly go on a safari again.
Seeing all the large animals elephants, giraffes and the big cats in such close proximity for the first time was amazing. If I had to say which of those was the most amazing I think it would be looking at a leopard in a tree, he was beautiful.

Jackson our group leader was very helpful and friendly, he did his job wll.

When travelling on a safari or any other holiday where you are packing and unpacking frequently it's quite useful to buy some packing cubes for some of your clothes. To my husband and I they were a godsend, they kept things well organised.

Tanzania Trips & Tour Advice

A popular Tanzanian saying suggests that “a patient person eats ripe fruit.” Well, stop being patient -- it’s time to taste the plum by embarking on the Tanzania vacation package of your dreams. This nation’s idyllic location, fronting the placid waters of the Indian Ocean, combines all the best of East Africa. Are you game to visit some of the top wildlife reserves on the entire continent, lounge on white-sand beaches ripe for catching rays, or explore that mountain of lore, Kilimanjaro -- its trio of snow-capped volcanic cones etching the sky as the highest point in Africa? You’ve undoubtedly heard of Serengeti, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro; now it’s time to see these magical places on the best Tanzania tours imaginable.

Landscapes and Wildlife

Tanzania’s borders harbor a diverse landscape and abundant wildlife. Consider Lake Manyara, where in the wet season more than 300 species of migratory birds hang out, and in-the-pink flamingos number in the thousands. In the dry season, mud flats offer ideal opportunities to view elephants, hippos, wildebeest and giraffes. Many Tanzania package tours feature stays in Lake Manyara wildlife lodges. And be sure to look up: among the main local attractions are tree-climbing lions.

The island of Zanzibar, once an integral part of the British Empire, is now a veritable melting pot of African, Arabian and Indian influences. This semi-autonomous region of Tanzania sports beach resorts perfect for a romantic Africa getaway, while its charming Stone Town -- a maze of cobblestone alleyways and vibrant bazaars -- offers an authentic taste of the Swahili Coast.

A Volcano and a Crater

Mount Kilimanjaro may now be an inactive volcano, but activities abound for trekkers taking to its slopes. Its snow-capped peak gracefully sets the backdrop for the savannah and its spectacular wildlife far below. In his story “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” Ernest Hemingway wrote: “There, ahead, all he could see, as wide as all the world, great, high, and unbelievably white in the sun, was the square top of Kilimanjaro. And then he knew that there was where he was going.” That could be you!

Tough to pronounce, but worth the effort to visit, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is another volcanic wonder. Think of this UNESCO World Heritage Site as a reverse Kilimanjaro: Ngorongoro’s volcano blew up, collapsed and formed an immense crater. This region is now home to abundant wildlife – and you may even see local Maasai, dressed in their signature orange robes, grazing their cattle at the crater.

The Serengeti

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, is renowned for the annual migration of wildebeest and zebras amid its grassland plains and savannah, offering up countless National Geographic moments. Cameras are mandatory here – keep them primed for that perfect photo op.

These are just some of the highlights of a Tanzania tour, which will show you sights and offer you experiences you could have only imagined. Isn’t it time to book one on Stride now?
