Day 1: Kigali - Volcanoes National Park

Whether you’re arriving from your hotel or the airport, your adventure will kick off with a pickup. From there, you’ll set out on a journey to Musanze, the second-largest city in Rwanda.

Nestled against the stunning panorama of the five Virunga volcanoes, Musanze will serve as your hub for venturing into the wonders of Volcanoes National Park.

With an early breakfast at your hotel under your belt, you’ll proceed directly to the headquarters of Volcanoes National Park to rendezvous with your guides. After a comprehensive briefing, you’ll embark on the extraordinary adventure of tracking the elusive mountain gorillas.

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

Undoubtedly one of the most memorable experiences you’ll ever encounter, your efforts will grant you an invaluable hour of close proximity with the gorillas once they’ve been located. You’ll be bestowed the privilege of coming within a few meters of these extraordinary, rare creatures, allowing you to observe their familial interactions and gain insights into the distinct personalities of each gorilla in a tranquil atmosphere.

Upon concluding your remarkable time with the gorillas, you’ll return to your hotel for a satisfying lunch.

Should your schedule permit, the afternoon presents the option to visit the nearby Twin Lakes or the Iby Iwacu Cultural Village. Alternatively, you may choose to simply unwind and relax at your lodge.

Commencing once more with an early breakfast, your day will commence with a drive to the National Park, marking your second day in the company of the gorillas. As you gaze upon these majestic beings within their natural realm, take a moment to contemplate the incredible fortune that has granted you this privilege. With mountain gorillas unable to thrive in captivity, you stand among the select few who have the opportunity to witness these magnificent creatures and their strikingly human-like behaviors.

As the hour spent with the gorillas gracefully slips away, the time will come to bid them farewell and make your way back to your Kigali hotel, cherishing the profound memories you’ve gathered during these unique encounters.

Following breakfast, an enriching city tour awaits you, courtesy of our arrangements. This exploration may encompass visits to the craft markets, the Kigali Museum, and the poignant Genocide Memorial.

Furthermore, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in some final souvenir shopping, ensuring you carry cherished mementos of your journey. Ultimately, you’ll be chauffeured to the airport, marking the conclusion of your expedition.

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!
