7 Day TK Rongai Climb & 3 Day Safari to Serengeti & Ngorongoro
Recommend arriving on 5th or 6th June. Awaiting decision on this.
Monday 7th June 2021: Arrive at Kilimanjaro International (JRO) airport at 2100.
Once you have completed customs formalities and collected your luggage, please exit the airport building and then look out for TK's driver who will be waiting under a shelter for you at the meeting point outside and should be carrying a placard with your name on it. Our driver will transfer you to your standard grade hotel in Arusha for your overnight stay in a twin room on a bed & breakfast basis.
For climbers arriving earlier in the day, the mountain guide will normally come to your hotel for your pre-climb briefing at approximately 1800, during which he will introduce himself, brief you on everything that will be happening throughout the duration of the climb, check any kit that you may have concerns over, issue any kit hire items that have been requested (if you hire any kit from us for your climb) and he will also deal with any final pre-climb administration and answer any questions you may have. However, if your flight arrives in the evening, your guide will briefly go discuss arrangements with you and check your gear after breakfast. If he perceives that you have any deficiencies in your personal gear beyond what you've already hired, this will incur a very short delay while he sends for some supplies from our office.
Tuesday 8th June 2021: Your mountain guide and supporting crew will collect you from your hotel at approximately 0730 to transfer you to Mount Kilimanjaro to start your open 7 day TK Rongai ‘Advantage Series’ climb, finishing on 14th June 2021, when you'll be collected at Marangu Gate and transferred to Green Mountain Hotel after lunch in Moshi.
Monday 14th June 2021: Your safari guide will come to your hotel at approximately 1800 to introduce himself, answer any questions you have, and complete your pre-safari briefing.
Tuesday 15th June 2021: Our driver will collect you from your hotel at 0600 to transfer you to Arusha (ARK) airport for your flight to Seronera Airstrip, departing at 0745 and arriving at 0855.
TK safari guide will meet you when you land. Game drives in Serengeti. Transfer to Serengeti Serena Lodge for overnight.
Wednesday 16th June 2021: A driver from Serengeti Balloon Safaris will collect you from your safari lodge at approximately 0500 (TBC) to ensure that you arrive at the launching site by 0600, ready for take off at 0630. You will then watch the balloon inflation before boarding the hot air balloon. Your flight will last for approximately 1 hour, floating over the world’s most spectacular National Park.
After your flight you will celebrate in the traditional way with a champagne toast (well, an excellent sparkling wine) before heading off to a special ‘Out of Africa’ breakfast. Game drives in Serengeti and in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area en-route to Ngorongoro Serena Lodge for overnight.
