When in Tanzania, the Kilimanjaro region is the place to be. Not only is it astoundingly beautiful, but there are a host of activities to look forward to. Best of all, fastjet can take you there. Here are our top five activities to look forward to in Kilimanjaro.
1. Test your ability to endure and summit Mount Kilimanjaro
No trip to Kilimanjaro is complete without attempted the great climb. Kili is a beast so we wouldn’t advise hiking the mountain unless you’ve done some training. Having said this, it is an experience you will never forget. You’ll literally be at the highest point in Africa, and the views are spectacular.
2. Take a dip in the Kikuletwa Hotsprings
Fly into Kilimanjaro Airport, hire a vehicle and take a drive to the beautiful Kikuletwa Hotsprings. Located about 25 km from the airport, this natural spring is surrounded by fig tree roots and local wildlife. After cooling off in the pristine waters stop off at Rundugai Village and grab a bite to eat. The food is delicious and the hospitality impeccable.
3. Explore Olpopangi Maasai Cultural Village and Museum
Discover what life in an authentic Maasai village is really like. Meet the people, learn about their culture and history, explore the museum, and so much more at Olpopangi Maasai Cultural Village and Museum. All proceeds go towards improving the livelihoods of the local people, so it’s a worthwhile adventure.
4. Experience Materuni Waterfalls and learn how to make coffee.
Located near the town of Moshi is the magical Materuni Waterfalls. It takes about 30 minutes to hike to the Falls, and you can arrange a guide to get you there without getting lost. After a morning spent swimming, head over to one of the local coffee farms and learn how to make the perfect cup using Arabica coffee beans. Simply delicious!
5. Book a game drive and discover the wonder of Ngorongoro Crater
Experience the great migration first hand. Pack your camera and take a game drive through Ngorongoro Crater. Witness buck, wildebeest, buffalo, springbok, and zebra grazing side by side. See cheetah hunt and lion laze about. And soak in the knowledge of your expert guide.
