Take the adventure of a lifetime and spend 7 days on the Machame Trail for your chance to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro.  Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest African peak and considered the easiest of the 7 summits of the world rising 6,000 meters above sea level.

After the hike, explore the majestic beauty of the Serengeti on a 3-day camping safari. Bear witness to the epic wonders of mother nature.  See all the glory and wonder of Africa over 11 days on this once in a lifetime bucket list journey.
