We spend time game viewing in the Serengeti where we hope to view the migration of the wildebeest (subject to season). At the Ngorongoro Crater we prepare for unsurpassed game viewing as within the crater are most species of East Africa's wildlife including the rare Black Rhino and large prides of lion. High above the crater rim our Masai guides lead us on a series of wildlife walks including a walk up Mt Lemagrut, a good training run for our ascent of Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m). In the company of our guides and crew we follow the relatively remote Rongai Route, displaying spectacular sunrise views from the summit.
