Also known as the ‘White Mountain’, a safari in Kilimanjaro is full of surprises. If you decide to go trekking to its peak, expect contrasting scenes at every step. From mountainous deserts, swamps, lush tropical forests, and even to a freezing glacier at the top; on every corner, a new scenic view will await on your Kilimanjaro safari tour. Wildlife is present especially in the forested areas, yet in less numbers than in the nearby national parks. Even so, you are likely to encounter a variety of spectacular monkeys and an even wider range of birds.
February is a great month to travel if you want to go on a safari or on a wildlife tour. While you probably want to avoid the bone-chilling Northern Hemisphere, there are plenty of options around the world.
The end of the year is a time for reflection. But, with all the negative hype about the current state of our planet in the media, it’s easy to think that this year was… well… terrible.
