Come and see the best of Tanzania!
Climb 19,340’ Mt. Kilimanjaro; go on safari in Tarangire, Ngorongoro, and Serengeti National Parks; and tour, dive, or just hang at the beach on the paradise island of Zanzibar. The full trip with all three segments is 24 days, but you can leave after the climb or the safari, or join us in Moshi for the safari and Zanzibar after we return from the climb.

Our Tanzanian guides and porters will fully support our group, while we trek carrying daypacks. Our experienced Rare Earth Adventures group leader will ensure that the trip goes smoothly.
