Mt Meru – this is a wonderful four day climb up and is a great method of acclimatising for a climb of her higher neighbour, or as a stand-alone climb. Mt Meru stands at 4’566m high and is located 44 miles west of Kilimanjaro. The five day itinerary includes 2 nights in our hotel in Moshi.
Ngorongoro Crater and Lakes Safari - We offer an exciting 4 day, 3 night all-inclusive Tanzanian Safari Holiday to Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire as an addition to your climb of Kilimanjaro. The safari is a great way to relax after your climb and there is a choice of either 3* accommodation in Twiga Resort, or a 4* Lodge option in Lake Manyara. You can add this easily onto your trip when you get to the Booking Section.
Generally people finish Kilimanjaro at 2pm on the last day and go to the hotel for an overnight, and then depart the next morning for their safari. You can leave your trekking gear in the hotel. The first day is a drive from Moshi to Arusha and then to Mto wa Mbu, which is right next to Lake Manyara. Here we offer either the 4* Lake Manyara Lodge on the escarpment overlooking the Lake, or a 3* hotel in the town called Twiga Lodge. The safari takes in three Parks - Lake Manyara, Lake Tarangire and a whole day in the Ngorongoro Crater.
On the way back on day 4 of the safari, you can either be dropped at the airport (which is on the way), in which case you will need to bring all your luggage with you, or go back to the hotel in Moshi for a last night in the town.
The safari is fully catered and once again we use our own vehicles and staff under the management of Castro Kapela.
