Climbing & Trekking

Majestic Peaks and Pristine Trails

East Africa offers some of the most exhilarating climbing and trekking experiences in the world, with a diverse range of landscapes that cater to both novice and experienced adventurers. The region is home to Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the highest peak in Africa, attracting trekkers from around the globe. Kilimanjaro’s various routes, such as the Marangu, Machame, and Lemosho, provide different levels of challenge and scenic diversity. The climb takes trekkers through lush rainforests, alpine meadows, and barren lunar landscapes before reaching the snow-capped summit. Besides Kilimanjaro, Tanzania also boasts Mount Meru, which, while less famous, offers a challenging ascent with breathtaking views of the nearby Arusha National Park and Kilimanjaro itself. Mount Meru serves as an excellent acclimatization trek for those preparing to tackle Kilimanjaro, providing a rewarding climb in its own right.

In neighboring Kenya, Mount Kenya presents another iconic climbing destination. This extinct volcano offers routes such as the Sirimon, Chogoria, and Naro Moru, each with unique landscapes and ecosystems, from bamboo forests to high-altitude glaciers. Climbers can experience a variety of environments, including dense forests, moorlands, and glacial valleys. The technical climbing required to reach Mount Kenya’s highest peaks, Batian and Nelion, appeals to more experienced climbers, while Point Lenana provides a less technical but still rewarding ascent. The diverse flora and fauna, including giant lobelias and hyraxes, add to the mountain’s allure, making it a must-visit for nature enthusiasts and adventurers alike.

East Africa’s varied terrains and natural beauty make it a prime destination for those seeking adventure and the opportunity to experience some of the continent’s most majestic environments. Beyond the major peaks, the region offers numerous other trekking opportunities in its national parks and reserves. The Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, for example, provides a unique trekking experience through its diverse wildlife and stunning landscapes. In Rwanda, the Volcanoes National Park offers the chance to trek through lush forests to see endangered mountain gorillas. Whether scaling towering mountains or exploring verdant valleys, trekkers and climbers in East Africa are rewarded with breathtaking vistas, rich biodiversity, and unforgettable experiences.

Unforgettable trip to Serengeti with African Diurnal Safari It was a fantastic trip especially with my escort driver. He’s very patient and makes sure I see what I want. It interesting see these wild animals in their own habitat. I was able to see big 3 out of the big 3; Elephants, lion and buffalo. I saw cheetah too so that will replace my leopard, unfortunately I couldn’t see Rhino. There were numerous animals at Serengati aside the big 5.

The fabulous African Safari Tour in Northern Tanzania it was an African safari that included my wife and I and another couple (our friends). We started in Arusha city, went to Seronera, Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, Serengeti, and then ended in Mwanza city. It was a very wonderful experience. My wife and I and our two grown sons did almost a very similar safari tour in June 2019 by the same company and we also experienced the same excellent/superior service. From hotel choices, services in the tour vehicle, meals, etc., it was fabulous

Remarkable Lifetime Safari Experience! I had an unforgettable safari with Lameck's team. The tailored made itinerary for me as solo woman traveller, quick and easy communication and well controlled within my budget with quality accommodations! My driver Samson was a great guide and he knows everything about wildlife and parks, within five days I was lucky to see all the big five up close. I would definitely recommend African Diurnal Safaris to anyone looking for remarkable lifetime safari experience.

Amazing! Wonderful experience! My tour guide taught me so much about the Serengeti and the animals that live inside. We had an amazing picnic lunch under a tree in the Serengeti while watching animals graze in front of us. This was one of the best experiences of my life and I highly recommend!

A great experience. I only had one day to do a safari. This company did a great job in providing a wonderful Serengeti experience. Lameck, the guide was very good at finding most of the big five animals including getting about 6 meters (20 feet) away from three lionesses feeding on a recent kill.

Amazing 7days luxury Safari with great Safari Company Me and my husband had the best times and best organised safari from the beginning when arranging the trip as well as payments. Everything was great and our guide Lameck was the best ever, he is very skilled and well informed. He showed us the most incredible places and gave us great information about every animal, birds and plant we saw. He knew the roads very well and took very good care of us. When it came to lunch he knew how to set a wonderful table and pampered us well enough. We had a very exciting adventure with Lameck. Wonderful trip that I recommend to all who love to see the fascinating wildlife in Tanzania. Thank you African Diurnal Safaris and thank you so much Lameck for this great wonderful experience. Will definitely recommend this trip to my friends.

Sensational safari We enjoyed a great 4 day Safari. Our friendly drivers were knowledgeable and helpful. Starting from the western side meant that our first day was extra special as we did not see any other vehicles but very many animals.
