The best 7 days Tanzania safari


The best 7 days Tanzania safari. Mount Kilimanjaro offers multiple paths to the summit, but the Lemosho route is the only one situated in the mountain’s northwestern corner. You will be able to complete excellent acclimatization on the fourth day before reaching the base camp if you choose this route (Barafu). The Lemosho path is the only one that allows you to submit Shira Peak.

As a climber/traveler, you have the chance to add value to your trip by contributing a portion of your climbing fee to a kid living in a vulnerable/poor area. Godson Charity is not a shelter for orphans. Instead, we identify children living in poor/vulnerable environments, assess their needs from where they are, and then seek immediate assistance.
