A New Adventure With A Kilimanjaro Safari’s
Hiking up the utterly beautiful peak of Kilimanjaro is not for everyone. Besides the physical challenge, the simplest route up the mountain takes at least five days to complete. But Tanzania has something even better up its sleeve which people of all ages can really enjoy: Kilimanjaro Safari’s.
A lot of people think that the tour involves just driving around the wild, hoping to see some of the most unique, the rarely seen and the mightiest species in the animal kingdom. But it so much more than that! Read on to see what the Kilimanjaro experience really is like.
People in Tanzania understand tourists’ need for good accommodation even when they are in the middle of the wild. This is the reason a lot of Kilimanjaro Safari entrepreneurs have thought of offering lodge safaris. Here, people can go drive around the savannah in search of adventure and rest right at the heart of it all.
Aside from ensuring your safety, lodge safaris offer so many services in addition to the actual accommodation. Just let them know what you’d like and they will gladly arrange it for you.
If you’re the more adventurous type and think that lodge safaris are a tad too decadent for your taste, camping safaris might suit you best. You will be putting up your own tents, resting in sleeping bags and building your own fire while the animals freely roam around you.
But there is no need to fret that a lion will wander in your camp in this kind of Kilimanjaro Safari tour. Experienced guides will accompany and protect you. If requested, they could even make you authentic Tanzanian dishes!
You could always choose the basic Kilimanjaro Safari tour. A skilled guide will drive you around on maintained and extremely safe four wheel trucks if you’re too anxious about staying in the savannah overnight. This is also perfect for families who are on a tight budget.
Wait… There’s So Much More!
The beauty of Tanzania, especially of the Kilimanjaro, is not just in the scenic savannah or the animals freely roving around. You should thank the different tribes who have protected and preserved their environment. You could do this by learning more about them and their culture.
If you like, ask your guide if you could stay with the Masai, Shagga, and Meru tribes for a night or so and see how they live and love Kilimanjaro.
You could even include Zanzibar to your Kilimanjaro tour. Here, you will love the clear, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean – perfect for a romantic getaway. You could also explore the historic Stone Town, a World Heritage Site.
Due to the popularity of the Kilimanjaro Safaris, Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida has recreated the whole thing. Apart from the picturesque sights of the wild, Disney has imported several African animals like impalas, mandrills, zebras, rhinoceros, cheetahs and lions, just to name a few. Of course, nothing beats the experience of being in Tanzania. Book your safari now at www.PeakPlanet.com.
