Follow the path less travelled up Mt Kilimanjaro's longer — but arguably more scenic — Lemosho route, with time afterwards to explore another side of Tanzania. This 14-day tour takes you along incredible landscapes and up challenging terrain to the continent's highest peak with experienced guides and porters cheering you on. But there's plenty more that awaits closer to the Earth's surface, like Zanzibar's spice plantations and postcard-perfect beaches to rest sore muscles.
