Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. The tallest freestanding mountain in the world. The roof of Africa. One of the world’s most accessible high summits. Kilimanjaro is a natural wonder, with varied ecology which adds to the unique characteristics of this mountain. Climb this impressive mountain on a privately guided expedition.
Five climate zones
Kilimanjaro’s immense size and height, as well as its location near the equator and close to the Indian Ocean, strongly influence its climate and thus its vegetation, animal life and climbing conditions. Climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world at 5,895 meters (19,336 feet) is challenging. On this once-in-a-lifetime trek, you hike through the spectacular landscapes of five temperate zones.
Bushland to glaciers
Explore bushland, rainforest, heather moorland, lava formations and glaciers. As you ascend its slopes, elephant may appear in lush montane forest. From its beautiful alpine desert to its icy summit, its crater lake to its moorland dotted with oversized lobelias, the mountain’s wonders do not cease.
Climb to the roof
Fulfill your dream and climb up the highest and most famous summit in Tanzania with a private guide. Mount Kilimanjaro stands almost 6,000 meters above sea level, but you do not need to be an experienced mountain climber to reach its peak. You need to be in a fit and healthy state with a good all-round condition, strong will power and a bit of luck.
Kilimanjaro has six starting gates, three points via which you can access the summit and two descent routes. Hence, there are many tour routes, each with different scenery and varying degrees of exertion required. Enjoy the extraordinary views extending hundreds of miles. And experience the overwhelming sense of achievement when you reach the top and look out over Africa.
Combine your expedition to the Kilimanjaro with a private safari to the famous wildlife parks in Tanzania. And end your adventure with a well deserved few days of blissful relaxation on the tropical islands Zanzibar, Pemba or Mafia!
