Itinerary

Day 1: A Gentle Start

Arrive at Arusha Airport & transfer to Rivertrees Country Inn for 1 night on a bed & breakfast basis.

You’ll start your hike tomorrow; today is a time to relax and rejuvenate after your long journey here. You’ll be met at Arusha Airport and transferred to Rivertrees Country Inn where you can unwind in the leafy garden and – if it is clear weather – gaze over Mount Kilimanjaro itself. Relax with a massage at the spa or spice it up with a mountain bike ride to shake off the last of the travel aches.

Days 2 – 5: To the Roof of Africa

Depart for your Kilimanjaro trek & 4 nights inclusive of all meals, tented accommodation, porters & guiding.

At nearly 6 000 metres or 20 000 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak and its slopes will be your home for the next four nights. With expert guides leading the way and cheerful porters carrying most of the luggage and food, you’ll see the mountain’s ecology unfolding before you as you hike uphill. You’ll need all the right hiking clothing but you only need carry a day bag with your personal belongings and can look forward to hot meals and a fascinating introduction to the mountain’s various vegetation zones before the chilly pre-dawn summit attempt.

Day 6: Return to Rivertrees

Return to Rivertrees Country Inn for 1 night on a bed & breakfast basis.

Comfortable cottages and en suite bathrooms await weary hikers back at Rivertrees Country Inn. The swimming pool and its sun deck is a popular post-hike hangout in warm weather but you may also want to curl up in front of a roaring log fire. This is the time to book a massage – the perfect way to end a Kilimanjaro hike.

Days 7 – 10: A Savannah Safari

Fly to the Serengeti & Namiri Camp for 4 nights on safari on a full board basis. Morning & afternoon game drives.

From the snowy peaks of Kilimanjaro to the hot, burnished savannah – today you’ll fly to the eastern Serengeti plains, until recently closed to the public and now open and with a mighty reputation for big cats, especially cheetah. Not for nothing does your camp’s name – Namiri – translate as big cat in Swahili! The famous wildebeest migration rolls into the area from November to January and provides dramatic game viewing but the area is great for wildlife all year round. Morning and afternoon drives provide the action, and don’t be surprised if your breakfast turns out to be served out in the bush.

Day 11: The Journey Ends

Transfer to the local airstrip for a flight to your final destination & your onward arrangements.

Although you’ll be leaving for the local airstrip and a flight to your next destination, there may be time for a final morning game drive depending on your travel arrangements. If you’d like to add on a beach holiday in Zanzibar, simply let us know – the tropical retreat sits just a short flight away and offers the perfect place to wind down after a ‘snow’ and ‘safari’ experience.

Reviews

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Very helpful good suggestions for holiday ideas always available for questions good organising

Excellent service and they supplied good suggestions for our holiday they also organised all internal flights and arranged check in for us so we had no worries while on holiday. We have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari Online. Would recommend Safari Online to organise your holiday.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.
