World Peace Tours:
Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
It has been classified as an experience, memory, a story, but we at Asante Safaris have accepted that is the beginning of a love affair with something truly exotic and fulfilling. The tour will personally be handled by Renny Hunt, a native of Tanzania who is the co-founder of Asante Safaris. She diligently worked with the Tanzania National Parks for over 15 years before sharing her passion for Tanzania with the enthusiastic audience of the USA.
You will discover why this is truly every traveler’s paradise. With a huge and most importantly diverse country, both in attractions and culture, Tanzania offers travelers everything from wildlife parks to challenging isolated mountain ranges, and picturesque villages to small Bomas filled with friendly and curious people. In only a short space of time you can easily find yourself scaling the highest mountain in Africa, followed by an engaging safari on the sun coated plains of the Serengeti; home to some of the largest concentrations of animals anywhere on the planet!
For 10 days/11 nights
World Peace Tours:
The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway
With this grueling challenge not only are your efforts rewarded through the success of reaching the peak of the world’s tallest freestanding mountain, but your energy and dedication also helps the students of a local school situated in Tanzania’s Pare Mountains. The climb is a wonderful feat to check off the list of lifetime goals, but more importantly the aid the students receive provides them the true chance to change their entire lives. Funds raised will go directly to providing some of the most basic educational resources, specifically building and establishing a working library, provision of adequate teaching quarters, as well as providing much needed and updated teaching materials (computers, books, and other supplies).
