The Kilimanjaro Safari Circuit (with PDF)

Hatari Lodge is located in the midst of the lush and green environment of the Meru Ecosystem, in which mosses grow on trees in the mountain rain forest and Colobus Monkeys playfully swing themselves from branch to branch, whereas Shu’mata Camp sits right on top of a hill in the midst of the steppe that belongs to the dry and dusty Amboseli Ecosystem with its shrubs, Acacia trees and old Amboseli tuskers, facing the “Seven Sisters” and Mount Kilimanjaro.

Realizing how close to each other these two ecosystems lie – only a one and a half hour drive from each other! – we understood how amazing it would be to combine the two locations into one single safari circuit with three to seven nights at Hatari Lodge and Shu’mata Camp. And while doing so, we also became aware that many visitors never even get a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro, whereas on our circuit, it is impossible not to see this old giant volcano, and the traveler even gets different views of it. So, we called our circuit the KILIMANJARO Safari Circuit!
