Tanzania Trekking Tours
Tanzania is a land of wildlife sanctuaries, lush rainforests and the best hiking and trekking trails of Africa. The country is crowned by the world’s tallest free-standing volcano with thousands of hikers taking the challenge to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro each year. But beyond climbing the renowned “Roof of Africa”, Tanzania stands out with much more incredible and less-known hiking and trekking possibilities off-the-beaten-path.
The best way to experience the wonders of Tanzania’s stunning mountain ranges is through a hiking or trekking journey. Whether you are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or one of the lesser-known alternatives, Tanzania will fascinate you with its stunning scenery! The Rift Valley and volcanoes; mountain ranges and plateaus; craters and lakes – all offer superb possibilities to immerse in Tanzania’s nature. And even hikers without summit ambitions will find a suitable trek.
Trekking in Tanzania can be done throughout the year. However, the dry season from late June to October, and late December to February, are generally most favorable. Many areas of the country become extremely muddy during the long rains from March to May, so hiking during this time is not really advisable.

Without a doubt, the iconic snow-capped dormant volcano Mount Kilimanjaro is Tanzania’s best-known mountain with its peak at 5,895 m. The trek will take you through five different climatic zones – from tropical rainforest at the base to arctic conditions near the summit.
Mount Meru is less known but just as striking as its big brother Mount Kilimanjaro. It is Tanzania’s second highest peak at 4,566 m. Located inside Arusha National Park you might even catch a glimpse of wildlife plus dramatic views of Mount Kilimanjaro nearby.
Although most famous for its wildlife heaven, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area provides a scenic trekking terrain. Take a multi-day trek through the Ngorongoro Highlands and follow an ancient Maasai path towards Lake Natron with the holy mountain „Ol Donyo Lengai“.
