Overview Itinerary Pricing


This itinerary combines a group Kilimanjaro trek, a group safari, and the Kilimanjaro Marathon in one fantastic package!

The next Kilimanjaro Marathon is scheduled for March 4, 2018. There is a full marathon, a half-marathon, and 5k fun run, so there is something for everyone.

The course starts and ends in the town of Moshi and goes uphill towards Mt. Kilimanjaro (from 2600 feet / 800 meters up to about 3700 feet / 1120 meters). Racers have amazing views as they run through local villages, farms, banana and coffee plantations, and forests with lots of local villagers to cheer you on. The race is fully supported with water/aid stations and medical support. The finish is the Moshi Stadium with bands, spectators, and lots of prizes to welcome you back.

February/March is a fantastic time to visit Tanzania. The migration is typically in the southern Serengeti or northern Ngorongoro area, so it is easy to get to, and the weather is usually warm and sunny.
