Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition

I've read a lot of great things about this on the internet. In my planning, I'm yet to find how long it lasts.. Can anyone give me a guesstimate? Thanks in advance!

That can vary depending on how long you have to wait and if the animals co-operate and stay out of the road

Haha, understood. But in general terms, are we talking 30 minutes? An hour? Not the waiting in line part, the actual safari itself.

Well, according to the guide when you get on the safari truck it's two weeks. It does go by pretty fast so that it really only seems like 20 to 30 minutes depending on whether or not the animals decide to cooperate or to stand in the middle of the road. You're actual times may vary.

Id say 20 to 30 minutes depending on the animals and how many times you stop for an animal in the road or to look at them. One of my favorite rides at AK

As a first time visitor, little things like this bring a huge smile to my face!

Thanks for the replies. It helps with my obsessive planning.

It runs 18-25 minutes depending on how many animals get in your way.

I suggest riding first thing in the AM- the critters are more active
