Thomson’s Kilimanjaro Trek & Safari Awarded by Outside Magazine

Written by Thomson Safaris

We are honored to earn a place in Outside Magazine’s 2012 Travel Awards Hall of Fame. The trek and safari package included on Outside’s “All-Time Favorite Trip List” begins with our Grand Traverse Route, a 10-day trek virtually circumnavigating Mt. Kilimanjaro. Not only does this lesser-traveled route offer stunning views, extra acclimatization days and a daytime summit bid, it also gives trekkers access to explore ancient glaciers while providing the best opportunity for summit success. Our 12-day Explorer’s Safari rounds out the itinerary by combining a mix of traditional wildlife viewing with a special Maasai-led hiking adventure across the Great Rift Valley. From the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the plains of the Serengeti, this trip has it all!

“We are honored and thrilled to be recognized by Outside,” says Judi Wineland, Thomson Safaris’ co-founder and co-director. “Travelers first started going on adventures with us in Tanzania more than 30 years ago. Today you will find the beauty of Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti to be as breathtaking and boundless as ever.”

The April issue of Outside Magazine, America’s leading active-lifestyle and adventure-travel magazine, is available on newsstands this week.
