As Kilimanjaro is situated near the popular Northern Tanzanian Safari Circuit, many climbers take the opportunity to combine their trip with a wildlife safari. Safari prices vary predominantly based on the type of accommodation - from basic camping to luxury tented camps and 5* lodges. A 3-day sample itinerary can be as follows. It usually includes the Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater (featuring one of the highest concentrations of game in Africa) & Tarangire National Parks for a short but intense Tanzanian Northern Circuit safari experience. Safaris can usually be tailored by the operators to suit your needs and requirements.

Most high altitude medical experts recommend against using the ALTOX Personal Oxygen System. Please consult your physician prior to considering this product that is sold at an additional expense by some agents.
