The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

On arrival in Tanzania, teams will spend some time adjusting to African life in the town of Dar-es-Salaam before travelling to Moshi. From here teams can do short treks in and around Arusha or Moshi area at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro.

Phase 2: Trek

Teams can choose to summit Mount Kilimanjaro (5896m) or Mount Meru (4566m). Whilst Mt Meru is smaller than ‘Kili’ it is often considered more challenging and a more rewarding climb with stunning views – the mountaineers choice!

Phase 3: Project

In this valuable and rewarding phase teams can volunteer and take part in a variety of environmental or community based projects. Projects are usually carried out in schools where teams can help with maintenance work, fixing buildings or general jobs with plenty of opportunity for interaction with local villagers and children. In the North teams can work with the charity Better Lives. All projects are chosen in consultation with the community to ensure their needs are met.

Phase 4: Culture and Review

Tarangire National Park is one of the few places in Africa where elephants can be seen in herds of 300 or more and lions are common. Lake Manyara National Park is famous for its elephants and tree-climbing lions as well as flamingos. Teams can also spend time relaxing on the white beaches of the Kigamboni peninsular.

Expedition Grade

Our Tanzania expedition is graded on average as a moderate to hard. Treks to Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru are challenging. The fitter you are the more you will enjoy your expedition!
