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.
Africa is not all arid deserts and vast savannas teeming with large mammals and predators. Its barely touched jungles, narrow valleys, dramatic cliffs, snow-capped peaks, and crystal-clear seas are just aching to be explored.
By the time we got to Amboseli, passing colorful Maasai men and women, who rightfully called this area, too, home, I had gone through many states of tiredness, boredom, indignation, seen the slums of Nairobi and then let them all go down with a teasing French fry.
Going on a safari in Africa is inspiring and exciting. It is also wild. And while wild animal encounters make the experience that much more memorable, they are the biggest reason why we should discuss safety.
