Altitude Acclimatisation Safari

Explore the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands and Lake Manyara National Park on this 3-day safari and walking itinerary, which serves as a perfect precursor to one of our Kilimanjaro climbs

Altitude Acclimatisation Safari

This short, 3-day altitude acclimatisation safari visits Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara, and includes a climb of Mt Lemagurut in the Ngorongoro Highlands. Taking you to over 3,000ms, it provides good acclimatisation and is ideal for those attempting a fast Kilimanjaro ascent.
