Backpacking safari around Mount Kilimanjaro

I dream of doing a backpacking safari at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro. Do you have any suggestions how to do that? Are there only guided tours in national parks or also tracks you can do on your own? Thanks for sharing your experiences!

    Backpacking Mt. Kilimanjaro can be best done from the Tanzania side but if you want to start with some safari experience, starting in Kenya would be the best option. Amboseli National park on the Kenya/Tanzania boundary offers a wide range of game viewing options while you enjoy the mountain scenery in the proximity. NB: You will have a weather problem on the Tanzanian side since it is the windward side of the mountain.
