Itinerary

Day 1 Nairobi
Once a swamp but now called the 'green city in the sun', Nairobi is a relatively multicultural city with a range of cuisines, museums and cultural centres to enjoy.
Day 2 Kisii
Kisii is a large town set in a fertile, hilly part of Kenya and grows an abundance of bananas, pineapple, sugarcane and coffee beans.
Day 3 Lake Victoria
Finding itself part of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, Lake Victoria is Africa's largest lake and home to a big population on both its shores and within its waters.
Days 4-5 Serengeti National Park
Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies.
Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater
Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.
Day 7 Meserani
Home to a bar covered in money and paraphernalia, a rotating community of Overlanders and a number of venomous snakes, of course, Meserani Snake Park is a true Tanzanian legend.
Day 8 Marangu
Nestled at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, Marangu is a small village surrounded by stunning vistas and lush forest.
Day 9 Mandara Hut
Walk through picturesque fields of heather to get to the huts at Mandara (2,725 m), built in an A-frame style and housing 6-8 bunks.
Day 10 Horombo Hut
Changing vegetation and diverse landscapes pave the way to Horombo Huts (3,780 m), a gathering of A-frames sitting on a rocky plateau.
Day 11 Kibo Hut
Hike through spartan landscapes to reach Kibo Hut (4,740 m), a communal stone house with bunk beds and a small camp office.
Day 12 Uhuru Peak/Summit
Perhaps see snow on the challenging climb to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m) and feel the exhilaration while witnessing never-to-be-forgotten views of the crater, ice fields and lands below.
Days 13-14 Marangu
Marangu's hotel offers a lush garden, hot showers, a pool and a bar/restaurant - all watched over by the stunning peaks of Kilimanjaro.
