Introduction

The two highest summits in Tanzania have immense appeal among nature and mountain enthusiasts from all over the world. We begin with the fantastic four-day climb to Mount Meru (4.563 m) which is an optimal acclimatization and preparation for the expedition to the roof of Africa, the majestic Kilimanjaro. This ascent will take us through different climatic & vegetation areas, therefore we will experience great natural diversity. It will all start at the Arusha National Park where, if we are lucky, will be able to see giraffes, monkeys, buffaloes and elephants in their natural habitat. At Mount Meru, we will spend the nights in spacious refuges that will offer us good shelter. Its impressive rocky summit, at an altitude of 4.563 m.a.s.l., will give us fascinating and unforgettable views over the savannah of Tanzania until we reach our next destination, Mount Kilimanjaro. Between both mountain ascents, we will make a brief visit to the land of the Maasai. Today, these once feared warriors, shape the country with a culture that remains as alive as it was hundreds of years ago. Then, we will continue with the 7-day expedition to the top of the highest mountain in Africa. We will climb Kilimanjaro by the most beautiful route of all: the Lemosho route. The ascent is not technically difficult, and it will offer the participants the opportunity to experience the incomparable emotion of reaching the roof of Africa, even without having great experience in mountain climbing. A 3-day safari will complete this unique journey. SPONDYLUS invites you to live a wonderful adventure. Between heaven and earth we will have a unique encounter with the history, the culture & the soul of Africa.
