At Stella Point you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see. Faster hikers may view the sunrise from the summit. From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1- hour ascent to the summit. Once at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa!

Day 10: Pick Up from hotel | Pre-Safari Briefing
Before embarking on your Tarangire safari adventure, it is important to be well- informed and prepared for what awaits you. In this pre-safari briefing, Your Safari driver Guide will provide you with all the essential information you need to make the most out of your trip to Tarangire National Park.

Your Full day tour begins with your hotel pickup in the morning and heading south to stunning Tarangire National Park. Arrive at the Tarangire National Park for game viewing. In the afternoon you will stop for a picnic lunch. Your afternoon game-drive will reveal all the wonders of Tarangire, a National Park often referred to as the 'Elephant Playground'. Herds of up to 300 of these mighty mammals are sometimes seen in the park.
Serengeti may be better known, but Tarangire in the dry season easily rivals it for animal densities. As well as the herds of elephant Tarangire is home to buffalo, lion, wildebeest, zebra and gazelle while gerenuk and fringe-eared Oryx are 'local specialties'. Lake Burungi's marshy shores are the lure for these mammals and the waters attract many beautiful bird species, too. Look out for giant kingfishers, hoopoes and the delightfully named white-bellied go-away bird. Tarangire is noted for its splendid baobab trees, rolling savannah and acacia woodland. At the end of an inspiring afternoon amongst the wildlife, drive back to your hotel in Moshi for overnight.

Day 11: Check-out hotel | Goodbye Kilimanjaro

You will leave moshi for your onward transfer to Kilimanjaro airport. You will need to book a flight that departs during this day. Otherwise, we can arrange an additional night at a hotel in Moshi. If you would like to travel to another destination, we can give you some of our own recommendations.
