Primates can be seen while cycling through the forest zone and larger game animals can be seen on the heath and moorland zone. On a clear day, you will witness breathtaking views of Kibo peak as you cycle towards the helipad.


At 0700hrs you will be transferred from your hotel in Moshi to the Londorossi Gate on the western side of Mt. Kilimanjaro where your tour begins.
