CMC uses the Machame Route on Kili. Trip includes a four day budget safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Nights are a mixture of a comfortable & rustic hotel; travelers camps; and tenting out. Trip size is limited to 18 persons, plus the trip leaders Steve Bonowski & Roger Wendell. To join, you must be in excellent physical condition and be comfortable with 3rd World travel. Recent graduation from a CMC entry level hiking school is desirable.

Final cost may vary slightly depending on air fares and currency exchange rates. Posted price includes lodging @ double occupancy, ground transport, climb & Park fees, most meals, Tanzanian visa, gratuities, leader expenses at full and 80% respectively, CMC fee. Not included in the $3,730 is air fare to Tanzania, shots & medications, a few meals, trip insurance, souvenirs, airline baggage fees, single supplement for lodging, bar tab.
