EXCLUSIVE TREK SAFARI
We invite you to join one of our exclusive GowayAdventures to East Africa.
Trek Mt. Kilimanjaro, view wildlife and visit exotic Zanzibar for 18 days - Air and land inclusive from North America - escorted by a Goway Staff adventurer.
Just south of the equator, Kilimanjaro (19, 340 ft/5, 895 m) - the highest mountain in Africa and one of the highest volcanos in the world - rises some 15, 000 ft above the surrounding plains and savannahs.
Kilimanjaro National Park was officially opened by President Nyerere in June, 1977. It has been established to preserve and protect Kilimanjaro and the surrounding nature and wildlife for future generations, and to improve huts, tracks and other facilities for visitors.
"As wide as all the world, great, high, and unbelievable white in the sun, was the square top of Kilimanjaro."
The Snows of Kilimanjaro
Kilimanjaro can be climbed at any time of the year but the best time is considered to be from August to October and January to March. It is wet in the rainforest during the rains in April, May, June and November. December through to February are the warmest months.
Tanzania Independent Travel Ideas
Zanzibar, Victoria Falls and Kruger
Day 1 - 4. Zanzibar.
From the port city of Dar es Salaam we catch a ferry to Zanzibar - the ‘Spice Island’. This was once one of the most important centres on the East African coast – a centre of slaving and spices, and the base for many of the great 19th century explorers – avid Livingstone, John Hanning Speke, Richard Burton and others. Time here is yours to enjoy at leisure. ‘Stone Town’ is the capital and entry point into the island and most people choose to spend at least one night here to explore the alleys, markets and architecture of the town – but then to venture a little farther afield to the north (or the east) to palm-fringed beaches and the warm blue ocean for some ‘serious’ relaxation.
Day 5 -12. Mikumi National Park - Lake Malawi - Lusaka.
Returning to the African mainland, we have time to browse the curio markets before driving via Mikumi National Park right across Tanzania to Malawi. This is one of the friendliest countries on tour and home to Africa’s third largest lake. We travel along the shore of Lake Malawi stopping at one of the beaches to enjoy the hospitality of the local people. Try scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing or horse riding, as well as a local village walk. Leaving the lake, we cross into Zambia and on to Lusaka for a night near the country’s capital.
Day 13 - 16. Livingstone - Victoria Falls.
We arrive at Livingstone close to Africa’s Victoria Falls. As well as being one of Africa’s greatest spectacles this is also Africa’s ‘adrenaline’ capital. Try white water rafting, bungy jumping or scenic flights to name but a few! For something more relaxing why not take an elephant back safari, horse-riding safari, or sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River? We visit the ‘Falls’ themselves – depending on season gaze into the 100 metre deep Batoka gorge, or admire the spray as it plumes up from the awesome power of the river as it flows into the narrow canyon below.
Day 11 - 13. Swakopmund - Namib Naukluft Park.
We reach the Atlantic coast and Namibia’s premier coastal getaway, Swakopmund. Relax and enjoy the local cafe culture or try some adrenaline pumping optional activities such as quad-biking, sand-boarding and skydiving! We continue south and reach the world’s oldest desert. Rising early we enter the Namib Naukluft Park before dawn, and (energy permitting) climb one of the massive sand dunes to watch sunrise over the vast sand sea.
Day 14 - 19. Fish River Canyon - Gariep River - Cape Town.
Further south we visit another natural wonder of Africa – the Fish River Canyon, second-largest in the world. Finally we cross into South Africa and after a night at camp on the banks of the Gariep (Orange) River we drive into cosmopolitan Cape Town, one of the world’s most attractive cities. We take a cultural visit to a local township and enjoy a traditional lunch before our South West Safari ends.
