Mountain Trekking

Overview.


Mountain Trekking categorized under adventure sports, is a fun activity to do especially in a lovely warm weather. It’s similar to hiking, but it’s just comparatively more challenging and takes longer to complete. The trips can vary from two or more days, while hiking is usually over within few hours of walk through the terrain. In terms of trekking, Tanzania is considered as a paradise because of its vastness and variety in offerings and there’s just so much to discover.

Here Are Some Of The Most Popular Trekking Sites In Tanzania:

  • Mount Kilimanjaro. Tanzania’s snow-capped mountain is something that every trekking enthusiast wishes to trek on. And why not, natural forests covering 1,000 square kilometers and rare animals and birds are located in here. Along with that, expect to see glaciers, five distinct climate zones, and alpine deserts. There are not one but seven different routes to choose from.

  • Mount Meru After Kilimanjaro, it is the second preferred trekking option. Centerpiece of Arusha National Park, the fertile grassy slopes make it an ideal trekking destination with lesser risks is compared to Mt. Kilimanjaro.

  • Mount Ol’doinyo Lengai. Nicknamed as the Mountain of God, it is an active volcano site. The animals found in here include monitor lizard, leopards, zebras, baboons etc. With Gregory rift, Lake Natron and picturesque landscapes of Arusha around, the trekking experience will definitely leave a mark in your life. Lake Natron at the base of Ol’doinyo Lengai is the breeding site for the lesser flamingos and a good spot to visit the Maasai tribe.

  •   Did a one day trek to the Mandara hut on Mt Kilimanjaro with Diamond Glacier Adventures. Demi was my guide for the day. I had such a great time. Demi is a great motivator to get you up the hardest parts. No rush and the scenery is spectacular. Lots of opportunity to stop and take pictures. Lunch was very good, You stop about half way up in a picnic area. Also we stopped on the side of the road on the way home so I could get some great shots of Kilimanjaro once the cloud lifted off the mountain. I would highly recommend going with DGA if you are interested in any sort of trek long or short. They are excellent to deal with. More

  •   Shorter review: AMAZING ONE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE, HIGHLY RECOMMEND, Demi and his Diamond Glacier Adventures are professionals, great guides and made us feel very welcome! MANY THANKS, DEMI AND THE TEAM! Do not hesitate and support the smaller business by choosing Diamond Glaciar Adventures instead of larger and more commercialized providers. Longer review: Based on my colleague's recommendation we booked (a group of 4, two couples from Germany/Russia/Poland) a 7 day Machame trip with Demi and his team in July 2019. The price was very reasonable, the communication was great and there were no issues with transferring the money via a bank transfer which was a strongly preferable option for us. We arrived at Kilimanjaro airport and were transferred to Pepe Hotel the same night without any delays. Pepe Hotel is a basic but very nice hotel with all the necessary amenities. Demi had a brief debriefing with us which made us feel in good hands; overall very professional and we were very pleased with the trip planning. We went through our equipment and apparel and Demi provided us with warmer apparel if necessary. The service of Demi and his team on the mountain was top-notch; we felt very welcome, the food was great and the climbing pacing was tailored to us. Demi recommended that we shorten our 7 days trip to 6 days one because of our good shape, which we did and did not regret afterwards; however, this was a...

    The service of Demi and his team on the mountain was top-notch; we felt very welcome, the food was great and the climbing pacing was tailored to us. Demi recommended that we shorten our 7 days trip to 6 days one because of our good shape, which we did and did not regret afterwards; however, this was a risky move on our part because it implies quicker ascend and a higher risk of altitude sickness.

    We made it to the summit on the fifth day - even though it was physically straining, we didn't have any health issues and were super happy to make in such a (relatively) short time. Nature is something out of this world, the views are breathtaking, the whole experience is something we will not ever forget in our lifetime! It is totally worth the price and the long flight and the strenuous ascend!

    As a little after-Kilimanjaro present Demi and his brother Connie invited us for a great barbecue in Arusha which was definitely a nice touch.

    Overall I was an amazing experience and we would definitely recommend Demi and his team as your guides and helpers! Many thanks for making it happen, guys!

    P.S. The Demi's team consisted of 19 people in total. I would highly recommend asking beforehand how large the group would be because it is crucial for tips at the end of the trip. Overall please refer to the tip calculation scheme at Demi's website beforehand; we referred to different resources which state 200-250 dollars per person, the actual amount is around 400+ per person for a group of four which is something you should definitely consider when comparing the prices.

    P.P.S. If you have any questions about our experience, feel free to contact me directly through TripAdvisor. More
