Combine a climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, with a safari on the vast plains of the Serengeti for the trip of a lifetime.

Afterwards, explore the hidden corners of the Eastern Serengeti and watch as the big cats roam the plains, or head to the idyllic island of Zanzibar for some true (and well-earned!) rest and relaxation.
