On Day 5 of your excursion, you will travel to Tanzania for your Mount Kilimanjaro trek to the “Roof of Africa". Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and also the highest free-standing mountain in the world. It has many trails, however Lemosho Route is our preferred route. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful routes on Kilimanjaro with spectacular scenery and an abundance of wildlife. We begin from the west, trekking in the fertile rain forest until we reach the wildflowers of the Heath Ecosystem. We then cross the stunning Shira Plateau before traversing the mountain along the southern circuit. Each of the 7 nights on Mount Kilimanjaro will be spent in our high quality four season expedition tents. The Good Earth Expedition team is excited to guide you up Mount Kilimanjaro to make sure you safely experience the time of your life!

The cost for a Gorilla or Chimpanzee tracking permit each is USD $1500 per person. Both species are endangered and highly protected by the local governments. Only a limited number of tour groups are allowed per day to ensure that the animals are not negatively impacted by tourists. 10% of permit revenue go towards local communities, schools, health centers, and roads. There is also a compensation fund for local farmers in case of gorilla damage to their crops. This ensures peaceful co-existence between farmers and wildlife.
