                A very challenging climb with an arduous night spent at 5,729 metres, just 166 metres below the highest point in Africa - but with great acclimatisation en route followed by a safari that's perfect when the migration is in the north. Straight from the safari we head to Zanzibar for a couple of days in busy Stone Town, and end with four incredibly serene nights in an eco-lodge of a private island.
