Rising from the savannah of East Africa to the staggering height of 5895m, not only is Kilimanjaro the highest mountain in Africa but it is also the tallest free-standing mountain on earth. Conquering its unmistakable snow capped peak has been the dream of keen trekkers as well as seasoned mountaineers for decades.
And rightly so, as Mount Kilimanjaro showcases some truly unique features. Its lower slopes are dense with lush forest yet the mountain is surrounded by vast expanses of dry savannah; its caldera is covered with ice yet this dormant volcano is situated near the Equator. There is no doubt that the views from its top are the greatest reward of all: from Kilimanjaro’s summit it is possible to observe the curvature of the planet and on a clear day the views stretch as far as the plains of the Masai Mara.
However, Kilimanjaro has much more to offer than just its awe inspiring views: embarking to an expedition to the roof of Africa is the equivalent of travelling on a trip from the Equator to the Arctic as the landscape varies from bushland to tropical forest, from moorland to heath and alpine desert.
The Kilimanjaro climb might be one of the toughest trekking challenges in the world – but we believe you can conquer it! We have several specialist treks to its summit, using the two most beautiful and quietest trekking routes – Lemosho and Rongai. Our Kilimanjaro climb includes a generous amount of acclimatisation time, giving you the best possible chance of reaching the summit at Uhuru Peak.
