The journey also presents opportunities to spot larger game such as elephants, buffalos, and antelopes in the surrounding national parks.
6. Cultural Immersion: Tanzania is home to a rich cultural heritage, and our Kilimanjaro expedition provides a chance to engage with local communities and gain insight into their way of life. Experience warm hospitality, interact with the Maasai people, learn about their traditions, and appreciate the vibrant music, dance, and cuisine that make Tanzania so enchanting.

●Hike to Materuni Waterfall and swim in its pool ,Materuni Waterfall is a spectacular 90 m waterfall in the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro. A short but taxing hike along a forested footpath brings you to the base of the waterfall, where the water collects in a beautifully clear little pool that’s safe to swim.
●Kilimanjaro coffee plantation tour The lower slopes of Kilimanjaro are a fertile farming area thanks to meltwater from its arctic summit. The coffee farmers here are famous for their 100% arabica coffee, which has a fresh flavour and smooth texture. Tours of the coffee farms are a popular post-Kilimanjaro activity – understandably, as having an expertly brewed cappuccino or americano after a week of roughing it on the mountain is just perfection!
●Meet the Chagga At some farms employees accompany the coffee roasting process with traditional singing and dancing. It’s a wonderful experience to be exposed to the traditions of the Chagga people, a distinct and thriving people group who have lived for centuries along the southern and eastern slopes of Kilimanjaro, among other areas.
●Take a dip in Kikuletwa Hot Springs , Location: Chemka Hot Springs Campsite, 1 hr drive southwest of Moshi
Duration: Full day Cost: $95 per person (includes private guide, entrance fee, packed lunch and bottled water) Swimming in the Kikuletwa Hot Spring is definitely one of the best things to do in Kilimanjaro region – and certainly the most relaxing! The hot spring (also known as Chemka Hot Springs for the nearby campsite) is encircled by trees, giving you a sense of being tucked away from the world and its demands.
●Trek to the top of Mt Meru :Mt Meru 4,566 m (14,980 ft) is a beautiful volcanic mountain on the western edge of Arusha National Park, just north of the city of Arusha. It’s the second highest mountain in Tanzania, and the fifth highest in Africa. It was once taller than Kilimanjaro, but an eruption blew off its top.
●Animals of Ngurdoto Crater :Some of the animals that call the crater home are giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, warthogs, baboons and black-and-white colobus monkeys. Occasionally you can spot elephants, leopards, rhinos and spotted hyenas. You have a better chance of spotting the rare black-and-white colobus monkey within Arusha National Park than anywhere else in Tanzania. One reason for this is that it’s a quieter park, as most visitors race west out of Arusha towards the famous reserves of the Northern Circuit like Serengeti National Park.
●luxurious stay, there are a number of five-star hotels located in the area, such as
○Kilimanjaro Marriott Hotel
○the Kilimanjaro Serena Lodge.
●Buget travellers, there are plenty
