    At 5,895 m (19,340 ft), Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak and this adventure along the Marangu Route will get you to the top safely, quickly, and with your budget in mind. Overnight in mountain huts and awake ready to conquer the slopes. As a leader in Kili treks, we’ll take you to new heights in adventure on your way to the roof of Africa. Affectionately known as the “Coca-Cola Route” due to its popularity, Marangu covers forests, moorlands, and “the Saddle” (a high-altitude desert), on its way to Kibo Hut. This is the easiest route to summit – with a catch. The trail is well maintained but because of the quick ascent, the success rate is not as high as other routes. Local guides, cooks, and porters will provide support during your trek and at campsites along the way.

    The Great Migration Package Highlights

     

    This package gives you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience The Great Migration!

    Our Great Migration packages have been designed by our travel specialists to deliver matchless experiences while catering to your every need. This travel experience combines flights, airport transfers, accommodation in select Hotels and Resorts and hand-picked activities and experiences in select World’s Ultimate destinations.

    The Great Migration
    The Great Migration is a natural phenomenon determined by the availability of grazing for Wildebeest and Zebras. As the rains end in May in the south eastern part of the Serengeti, the animals start moving northwest into the areas around the Grumeti River, where they typically remain until late June. Their big obstacle, the crossings of the crocodile infested Grumeti and Mara rivers into the Maasai Mara begins in July. At this time tens of thousands of Wildebeest and Zebras can be seen in large herds. Watching the animals cross these waters can be very spectacular with regular occurrences of panic and confusion. In October the herds start migrating south once again, returning to the short grass plains of the Serengeti in November. The precise timing of the wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year.

    Nairobi, Kenya
    Nairobi is Kenya’s bustling capital city, often used as a jumping-off point for safari trips. Nairobi, the vibrant, modern Safari capital of Africa boasting with cultural and natural diversity ranging from an elephant orphanage to the Karen Blixen museum. A short scenic drive to the north of Nairobi lies the sweeping wilderness of Laikipia, a paradise for walkers, birders and luxury safari enthusiasts.

    The Maasai Mara, Kenya and The Serengeti, Tanzania
    The Maasai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania are two of the world’s most famous National Parks and are home to the Great Migration. These parks in Kenya and Tanzania are known for their open short grass plains with abundant wildlife. The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment.

    Ngorongoro Crater
    Choose to extend your trip with a few nights at the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. It is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest un-flooded and unbroken caldera in the world. It is about 20 kilometres across, 600 meters deep and 300 square kilometres in area and is a truly a breath-taking natural wonder.

    World’s Ultimate Activities
    Our hand-picked activities allow you to discover the essence and heartbeat of each World’s Ultimate destination and can be organised on a shared or private basis. Below are a few activities that can be added to your itinerary:
    – Game Drives: Daily game drives with professional guides and trackers provide the perfect opportunity to get up close to Africa’s incredible animals, while spot lit night time drives reveal the elusive magic of nocturnal Africa. The game drives are all conducted in state-of-the-art Land Cruisers, each accommodating a maximum of six guests.
    – Horseback Riding: Horseback outrides on the plains of the Serengeti are an enchanting way to explore this spectacular landscape.
    – Hot Air Balloon Safari: With a panorama that is unique to this part of the world, guests looking for something out-of-the ordinary need look no further than hot-air ballooning over the Serengeti plains. Game viewing is taken to extraordinary new heights, aerial photography offers a different angle, the freedom of flight is yours and the silent whispers of the breeze entice you on an unforgettable adventure. You will depart from your lodge or tented camp to the balloon launch site. Your pilot will welcome you, give you a full briefing and you will watch the inflation of the hot-air balloon. Climb aboard and rise as the sun rises to view Africa aloft. The balloon floats in whichever direction the winds guide while your pilot precisely controls the altitude of the balloon – sometimes at treetop height, at other times ascending to 1 000 feet to see the enormity of the reserve.

    Gorilla Trekking Package Highlights

     

    This package brings you face-to-face with Rwanda’s majestic mountain gorillas.

    Our Gorilla Trekking packages have been designed by our travel specialists to deliver matchless experiences while catering to your every need. This travel experience combines flights, airport transfers, accommodation in select Hotels and Resorts and hand-picked activities and experiences in select World’s Ultimate destinations.

    Kigali, Rwanda
    Lying at the heart of Africa, Rwanda is one of the most dynamic travel destinations. Experience vibrant cities, pristine wilderness and an exceptionally hospitable people during your holiday in Rwanda. A unique and largely undiscovered venue, Rwanda also offers unrivalled biodiversity, beautiful mountains, some of the oldest and most precious rain forests on earth, five volcanoes, 23 lakes, numerous waterfalls, and three stunning national parks. As to wildlife, Rwanda boasts 13 species of primates (25% of the total number in Africa), and 670 species of birds, many of which are globally endangered. Kigali is the capital and largest city of Rwanda. It is situated near the geographic centre of the nation. The city has been the economic, cultural, and transport hub of Rwanda since it became capital at independence in 1962.

    Musanze
    For most travellers, Musanze (Ruhengeri) is the preferred staging post on their way to the magnificent Volcanoes National Park, one of the best places in East Africa to track the mountain gorilla. Since permit holders are required to check in at the park headquarters in nearby Kinigi at 7am on the day of tracking, staying in Musanze is a much safer option than leaving from Kigali at the crack of dawn. Musanze is a pleasant enough town to explore on foot, and it’s situated near a number of interesting natural sights, with the massive Virunga volcanoes looming to the north and west.

    Gorilla Trekking
    Expert local guides will bring you face to face with silverback gorillas in the Parc National des Volcans. You will spend between 3-10 hours tracking one of the official gorilla family groups through hillside paths, sometimes crawling through dense vegetation which can at times be challenging. Only limited visitor permits are available daily in order to conserve the habitat that the mountains live in, which makes early booking essential to avoid disappointment. Under guidance from the best, most highly trained people for the job, you find yourself face-to-face with something that seems so unequivocally human, it takes your breath away. An early start and a trek through dense rainforest is totally worth it for the privilege of spending an hour with these fascinating mammals. Youngsters may show off and huge silverbacks may beat their chests, but nothing beats just witnessing a gorilla family as they go about their daily business, chomp on bamboo, and watch you in return. It is no wonder that a gorilla trekking safari is often referred to as ‘the most memorable in the world’.

    World’s Ultimate Activities
    Our hand-picked activities allow you to discover the essence and heartbeat of each World’s Ultimate destination and can be organised on a shared or private basis. This includes a Kigali City Tour which showcases the beauty and diversity of the capital city and provides you an opportunity to visit the Genocide Memorial and the eco-friendly philanthropic organization, ‘Cards from Africa.’

    World’s Ultimate Accommodation
    World’s Ultimate Experiences offers accommodation that will ensure that you experience the best of your chosen destination. Below are the hotels that we offer – Other hotels or resorts of your choice not featured on our website can be quoted on, should you wish.
