Day 1: Kigali - Nyungwe National Park
You’ll depart from Kigali after breakfast for the long but beautiful drive south to Nyungwe National Park. Along the way you’ll come to understand why they call Rwanda ‘The Land of 1000 Hills’.

The trip will be broken up with a number of stops, including a visit to the Butare National Museum. You’ll also pay a visit to Nyanza, where you can visit the former palace of the last Rwandan king as well as the local Arts Museum.

After lunch, you’ll proceed to Nyungwe, passing through the forest along the way. You’ll have the chance to see playful primates playing by the road as you travel.

You’ll arrive at your Nyungwe accommodation in time for dinner and a good night’s rest.

Embarking on an early rise, your day begins with breakfast, and you’ll prepare a packed lunch to accompany you. Set off on a quest to uncover Rwanda’s enigmatic and vulnerable chimpanzee population. Bearing in mind that the country harbors a mere four hundred chimpanzees, the sighting of these creatures during your day’s trek remains uncertain. However, your dedicated guide will exert every effort to provide you with a glimpse of our closest relatives within the animal kingdom.

Upon concluding your chimpanzee trekking experience, your journey will lead you to the picturesque lakeside town of Korongi. Here, you’ll settle in for the night, enjoying the serene ambiance while gazing upon Rwanda’s largest lake.

Following a hearty breakfast, your adventure will commence as you journey towards Volcanoes National Park. This route promises a drive through some of the most breathtaking landscapes found on Earth.

Upon reaching the city of Musanze, a delectable lunch will be awaiting you. Subsequently, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the neighboring Iby Iwacu Cultural Village, immersing yourself in the rich tapestry of Rwandan traditions, encompassing food, dance, and history.

Commencing the day with an early breakfast at your hotel, your journey will promptly lead you to the headquarters of Volcanoes National Park, where you’ll rendezvous with your knowledgeable guides. Following a comprehensive briefing, you’ll embark on an unparalleled adventure – the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to track the elusive mountain gorillas.

The duration and complexity of your tracking endeavor are variables, contingent on the gorilla family’s location and weather conditions. This quest could span anywhere from two to six hours, involving trekking through mountainous forests at considerable altitudes. For those eager to partake in this endeavor, a reasonable level of fitness is undoubtedly recommended.

Undoubtedly one of the most remarkable experiences you will ever encounter, your efforts will grant you a precious hour in close proximity to the gorillas upon locating them. Mere meters will separate you from these extraordinary, rare creatures, enabling you to observe their familial interactions and gain insights into the distinct personalities of each gorilla in a tranquil atmosphere.

Upon concluding your enriching time with the gorillas, your journey will guide you back to Kigali, marking the transition to your onward travels.

Kilimanjaro Lemosho route TTC were amazing throughout my trek to the Kilimanjaro summit in October 2022. Everything was organised so well but the really exceptional aspect was the team of local support staff and guide. AJ, Paul, Isaya, Joseph, Pascal, Renata and the 30 other fantastic people that carried, cooked, camped and cared for us. Absolutely loved every second, a trip of a lifetime, thank you 🙏

Once in a lifetime experience I climbed Kilimanjaro with the Tanzanian Travel Company (booked through Charity Challenge UK) in October 2022. Everything was superbly coordinated by TTC, who arranged everything from porters, transport, food, tents- pretty much everything we needed to get to the summit! All of the staff from the guides and porters were very friendly and their knowledge was unrivalled. Special mentions to our lead guide, Richard, who's advice was invaluable and the other guides and porters David, Eric and Joseph (there are too many to mention). Would definitely book again with TTC in the future.

Excellent experience I just got back from climbing My Kilimanjaro on a trip organised by Charity Challenge in the UK. All the ground arrangements in Tanzania were done through Tanzania Travel Company and I would highly recommend. Staff were all excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great trip and I’m considering organising a holiday for the family with TTC in the future.

An adventure you won't forget! The whole experience from start to finish was awesome and I most certainly won't forget it. From the hotel to the staff and porters who made our trek possible, the food was tasty and plentiful, we all felt like part of the team and very well looked after.I definitely recommend doing the Lemosho Route for a greater chance of acclimatisation. The summit night was by far the hardest part but well worth the effort (even I got emotional). I would urge everybody looking to climb Kilimanjaro to definitely train for a good 4-5 months before attempting this challenge, it will only enhance the mammoth achievement.

Fantastic time climbing Kilimanjaro thanks to TTC! I recently completed a climb of Kilimanjaro with a small group of 7, managed on behalf of Charity Challenge by Tanzania Travel Company. We had a fantastic (if gruelling) experience, and I cannot praise TTC highly enough. From the MD Sam and our chief guide Richard, through to every guide and porter who accompanied us (not forgetting Pius, our doctor), everyone combined the highest standards of professionalism with warmth and friendliness, and a genuine concern for both our well-being and our success in getting to the summit. Highly recommended.

Amazing family experience Excellent safari! Incredibly friendly and accommodating! I was having some difficulty finding a well priced thorough safari and was given a number by a family friend who highly recommended this safari company. As Tanzanians it’s rare for us to be able to see a safari but Samuel helped guide us through a plan for a truly unforgettable experience. We hide an amazingly well educated guide and driver Kamau who went out of his way to get us some truly amazing shots. At one point we were literally 2-3 meters away from 3 young male lions, I was in shock at what Kamau could point out. Food provided was excellent Tanzanian cuisine. My little brothers(8 yr)first safari and he had a fantastic time Highly recommend as a Tanzanian.

Excellent experience with TTC! Setting out to climb Mt Kilimanjaro was quite a challenge and the team at TTC made it a safe and enjoyable trip! They did an excellent job guiding us through each day of the climb. I also had the opportunity to go on a safari afterwards with a guide named Livingston and he did an absolutely fantastic job getting us close to the animals and knowing the best spots in the game drives. Highly recommend this incredible travel group!
