Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Rise to the Roof of Africa by climbing the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro

The essence of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

Climb Africa’s highest peak and the world’s highest freestanding mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. Conquer the roof of Africa who stands at 5 895 metres (19 340 feet) above sea level.

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano, with three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. They have been widely researched due to their impressive landscapes that include shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields.
Based inside the Kilimanjaro National Park of Tanzania, the snow-capped mountain is truly a sight to behold. The mountain towers over southern Africa with a backdrop that stretches across the horizon and into Tanzania’s neighbouring nations.

The highest point, Uhuru Peak is a challenging, yet rewarding climb with a 97% success rate and over 15 000 summits to date. Climbers choose from seven different routes, each with varying difficulties over six to nine days. Each route encounters varied scenery, from the Afromontane forest to silvery glacial valleys, alpine desert, and even the rugged Kibo caldera and ash pit.

Hikers are accompanied by experienced, professional guides and a porter team that set up tents with comfortable mattresses. The attraction of summiting this majestic mountain lies in knowing that you’ll be standing on the highest point on the African continent. And for those few moments, will literally be on top of the world.
