3-Days West Kilimanjaro -
On the tracks of elephants

Moshi - West Kilimanjaro - Moshi


Not far from the bustling city of Moshi, you will find an untouched and rarely visited gem for nature lovers: the Sinya Game Reserve.
The seemingly endless savannah between Africa’s highest mountain and the Kenyan border is home to one of Tanzania’s oldest elephant populations. Experience the roaming herds on a game drive and observe the bulls with their impressive tusks. Gerenuk, kudu and oryx antelopes are also indigenous, although they are less frequently seen. In the meantime, wildebeest and zebra have also found their way into the savannah from the neighboring Amboseli National Park.
During a visit to a Maasai boma, you can get to know the way of life of this proud people in an unadorned and authentic way. You will spend the night at Kambi Ya Tembo Camp, with views of Kilimanjaro and the imposing volcanoes Ol Doinyo Longido and Ol Doinyo Orok.
Combine your stay with an ascent of Kilimanjaro or an extented safari.


You will be picked up from your accomodation in Moshi in the morning. Your destination is the Kambi Ya Tembo safari camp, which is located in the private conservation area between Kilimanjaro and the Kenyan border.
With a view of Africa’s highest mountain, you will spend the next few days exploring savannah landscapes rich in wildlife and traditional Masai culture off the beaten track.
You reach the camp at lunchtime. After lunch, enjoy the peace and seclusion of the camp and relax on your private veranda. In the afternoon, you will hike through the vast savannah landscape accompanied by an experienced Maasai, who will be happy to tell you about the special features of the local flora and fauna.

Today you will go on a game drive in the private Sinya concession. The reserve borders Kenya’s Amboseli National Park and is home to an impressive elephant population as well as various antelopes such as oryx, gerenuk and kudu. In addition, wildebeest and zebra are increasingly common, migrating between Amboseli and Sinya. On a clear day, you can enjoy the view of Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru during the game drive. In the afternoon, you will visit one of the traditional Maasai bomas. Here you will gain an insight into the traditional way of life, but also get to know the hard everyday life of the people.
