This trip is perfect before or after your Kilimanjaro trek.

Your accommodation will be in a tented camp for the evening, and all food is provided.

The animals were amazing. We saw everything you could hope to see! Our driver was kind and accommodating but was far from a safari guide. We were fortunate to have a very knowledgeable guest with us, but it would have been nice to have more of a guide than just someone to drive us through the park.

Fantastic Safari Experience! Our experience was truly outstanding! Ian, our driver, was exceptional, providing valuable insights about the area and animals while skillfully navigating every terrain. The safari was well organized, taking us to beautiful locations along the way. We felt safe and had complete trust in our guide. Highly recommended for an unforgettable adventure!

Great Safari Experience. Highly Recommend! The whole experience was amazing. My second time with them doing the Tarangine and Ngorongoro national parks Safaris. Picked up at Kili Airport and we drove to the first National Park. Spend the night at a beautiful resort with a great diner and the next morning went to Ngorongoro National park, which really is an extraordinary once in a lifetime experience. The tour company is very professional, plan according to your wishes and take good care of you throughout your stay with them. They go the extra mile to show you all the beautiful animals and share their knowledge with you. Even the lunchboxes were great! We had a wonderful time. Many thanks to our driver, Alan, and the whole Nyange Adventures team. I highly recommend.

The trip was INCREDIBLE! Alan was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Because of his expertise, we saw the "big five" and a lot of other amazing animals. Our overnight was comfortable and the food was excellent. The trip was all that I could have hoped for and more!


Before you go

Please see 'Inclusions' section above for a full list of inclusions and exclusions.

All of the Skyhook Kilimanjaro trips have a final day as a 'departure day'. Unless you want a free day between Kilimanjaro and safari (in which case you will need to book an extra night accommodation at an extra expense) you can start your safari on the final day of your Kilimanjaro trip. Eg. You have booked a 7-Day Machame Trek. You will start your safari on the same date as 'Day 9' of your Kilimanjaro trip. You can send us a message before booking to help you with planning. This means you will be picked up from Weru Weru River Lodge first thing in the morning the day after you finish hiking. If it is very early, you can usually ask the lodge to pack you a box-breakfast.

We recommend you check with your travel doctor, and you can find more advice at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx.

The safari is family-friendly, with a minimum age of 6 years.

Absolutely - just let us know which dates you want to go, and a member of our team will make all the arrangements for you.

On your trip

Start: You will be collected from your hotel in Moshi at 7:00 AM on day 1 of your itinerary. End: You will be dropped off in Moshi or Kilimanjaro Airport at 7:00 PM on day 2 of your itinerary. 

The average temperature is 25C in the day and 15C in the morning/evenings. We recommend bringing a fleece and waterproof jacket, although you'll spend most of the safari within the 4x4s.

It can be generally hot during the day, so sunhats, suncream, and sunglasses are recommended. In the morning and evenings, it can be a little cooler, so pack a sweater, fleece or jacket.

Yes, just make sure you put your dietary requirements on your registration form which can be found at 'My Dashboard' on your Skyhook account.

The food is prepared by the accommodation provider during the safari. You can usually expect several choices for dinner and breakfast as well as a packed lunch (chicken, chips, wraps, cookies, juice, fruit etc.) to take with and eat in the park during the day. If you have dietary restrictions, please advise us beforehand by filling out the Trip Form. There are snack trucks at some of the picnic stops from which you can purchase ice cream, extra snacks and even coffee!

Many of the animals are completely habituated to vehicles and often walk right beside or between the Land Cruisers. Guides also communicate by radio to share interesting sightings. You are sure to get plenty of opportunities for good sightings and pictures! Note that in Tanzanian National Parks, safari vehicles may not leave the designated tracks or off-road to get closer to wildlife. This is an important law to protect the fauna and flora. Please always respect the rules of the park and listen to your guide's instructions.

Other FAQs

You may want to bring a small amount of money for tips and any souvenirs.

You will be travelling with experienced and qualified guides, and this safari is very safe. However, it is important to abide by the rules set by the National Park and always follow the advice of your guides.

All trips on Skyhook are run by small, hand-picked local guiding companies. For this trip your guides run Nyange Adventures, based in Moshi Town.

By booking through Skyhook you'll be joining a small-group trip. This can make it nice and sociable (you'll be added to a group chat after booking), and guarantees great value for money!
