On this 12 day trip, you will visit the best of Tanzanian and Kenyan National Parks. All meals and accommodation are included. Rise early and climb steeply through the heathland of savannah, and trees such as Giant Heather and Erica. You will reach a gentler ascent through the lower alpine moorland, which is notable for beautiful wild alpine flowers and the unique giant lobelia and giant groundsel (Senecio Kilimanjaro) plants. If it’s a clear day, you will have direct views of Kibo, the peak and ultimate goal of your adventure. After a short lunch and rest, traverse across the Shira plateau west towards a river gorge, and finally, you will reach the Shira campsite. The night at this exposed camp will even be colder than the previous night, with temperatures dropping to well below freezing.
