ABOUT MOUNT KILIMANJARO:

  • Located in Moshi, Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania that has quickly become one of the most popular mountain climbs in the world. In addition to being the highest mountain in Africa, it is also the highest single free-standing mountain in the world at 9,341 feet above sea level and about 16,100 feet above its plateau base. Unfortunately, because of its shrinking glaciers and icefields, Mount Kilimanjaro is also the focus of many scientific studies. 

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS:

  • Whether it be a Half-Day Photographic Tour, a Full-Day Base Camp Climb, or a 6+ Day Trek, Mount Kilimanjaro has options for people of all ages and physical capabilities. We can take care of everything from all accommodations and meals to make sure that you are able to see and experience this famous mountain that so many, including Brooks, have climbed before!

ngorongoro crater

ABOUT THE NGORONGORO CRATER:

  • The Ngorongoro Crater, which was created when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself, is the largest intact caldera in the world. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978 measuring 16-19 km in diameter with walls of 400-610m in height. It is renowned both for its geological splendor and for being a natural reserve which is home to some of the densest large mammal populations found anywhere in Africa. Due to the enclosed nature of the Crater, it has virtually formed its own ecosystem in which the animals interact differently than anywhere else in the wild.

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS:

  • After spending 1 night in Arusha, TAASA Lodge & Roane Travel Design will help you plan a safari that includes Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park and The Ngorongoro Crater before making your way to TAASA. This trip extension is typically 2  extra days and includes 2 nights in the Ngorongoro Crater. Please let us know in your submission if you are interested in pricing & potentially adding this on.
