Join us as we ascend Mount Kilimanjaro via the Modified Shira Route, a route specially chosen by Bio Bio Expeditions that combines the best of the Shira Route with the most scenic section of the Machame route. We consider this the best route up the mountain!
We allow seven days for our climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro to ensure everyone can acclimatize to the altitude. Our approach to the Kilimanjaro trek is just as much about getting to know the mountain’s many sides and moods as getting to the top. Everyone will reach a summit – whether it be the Uhuru Peak, one’s own personal highest point, or just the satisfaction of spending seven days on one of the most spectacular mountains of the world.
We then move on to explore some of the world’s most scenic and remarkable wildlife paradises: an african safari to the famed Serengeti, the incomparable Ngorongoro Crater, and wildlife-rich Tarangire National Park in Africa.
Some of the incredible wildlife species that we commonly see on this trip are prides of lions, leopard, cheetah, elephants, hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, wildebeest, cape buffalo, gazelle, impalas, wild dogs, warthogs, baboons, incredible birdlife, and dozens of other species! Our local guides are experts at finding the wildlife and teaching natural history.
The indigenous people in this region — the Maasai — are colorful, warm, friendly, noble people who live in close harmony with the land. We will enjoy opportunities for genuine cultural interactions local Maasai people!
Experiencing the rush of standing on the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro, towering 19,324 feet above the African plains and exploring the wildlife, sounds and special magic that defines Africa is an unforgettable lifetime adventure.
Along the way, Dr. Mary Gardner will provide a practical discussion on the management of the geriatric patient.
