Based on feedback from other climbers, we recommend the extra day on the mountain, for acclimatization purposes and to increase your chance of a successful summit -- regardless of the route! This is advisable if your schedule allows.

Zanzibar is situated in the Indian Ocean, 36 km off the coastline of mainland Tanzania lies Zanzibar. Zanzibar officially refers to the archipelago that include Unguja and Pemba, surrounded by about 50 smaller ones. Zanzibar is an island state within the United Republic of Tanzania, and has its own semi-autonomous government made up of a Revolutionary Council and House of Representatives.Once the trading centre of the whole of East Africa, Zanzibar attracted Sumerians, Assyrians, Phoenicians, Arabs, Chinese and Malays. The great explorers, Burton, Speke, Livingstone and Krapf continued their journeys from these shores. It is characterised by beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, warm clear blue waters, idyllic islands, excellent reefs for snorkelling and diving, fantastic deep sea fishing and water sports activities. The historic Stone Town with its narrow winding streets, vivid markets and colourful bazaars makes for an interesting cultural visit. Commonly known as the "Spice Island"; famous for spices such as cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom, peper and others).
The Great Wildebeest Migration Tracking-Calendar, The annual wildebeest migration of herds in Northern Tanzania and Kenya is one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife events. Often referred to as the ‘Greatest wildlife Show on Earth’, The Great Wildebeest Migration is a movement of approximately 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra throughout the Serengeti and Masai Mara ecosystems.
December to March the Wildebeest migration congregates around Ndutu area, in the far south of the Serengeti. April to May, the Wildebeest migration moves north into the plains of the central Serengeti. Between June and July the Wildebeest migration splits in two; one group goes West into the Western Corridor before crossing the Grumeti River, the other heads directly to the North of the Serengeti. August to October the herd has reformed, and meanders on the Kenya and Tanzania border, along the banks of the mighty Mara River. Returning south from the-beginning of November. Unpredictable Nature The path of The Wildebeest migration is dependent on rain.
We all strongly agree that tourism can be used as a vehicle to eradicate poverty if well planned, for example in Tanzania, most of the tourist attractions are located in remote areas where the poorest people live. These people are the ones that bare costs of protecting the attractions.
In the communities of Northern Tanzania particularly ngorongoro districts in arusha region, there has been insufficient education efforts and institutional development for the Maasai to understand and benefit from educational achievement. Typically, Maasai children enter First Grade at age seven without prior exposure to classroom-based teaching, without basic skills, such as counting and writing, typical among other Tanzanian children, and without an understanding of Swahili, which is the only legally permitted language, other than English, in schools. They are set up for failure from the beginning; not surprisingly, many drop-out before the end of Primary School, and almost half do not pass the Grade 7 exams, which are critical to entering Secondary School. Consequently, as compared to other communities throughout Tanzania, the Maasai have far less children succeeding at all levels in school.
