At 5,895 m (19,340 feet), Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa. This volcanic massif stands in splendid isolation above the surrounding plains, with its snow-capped peak and glaciers looming over the savannah. It has three main volcanic peaks, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira.
The mountain has five main vegetation zones from the lowest to the highest point: Lower slopes, montane forest, heath and moorland, alpine desert and summit. The whole mountain including the montane forest belt is very rich in species, in particular mammals, many of them endangered species.
While it only takes a minimum of five or six days of climbing to reach the top, its relatively accessible trails make it the perfect destination for adventure seekers.
As you ascend the mountain, you get to experience each of Africa’s climates, from the tropical heat at the bottom to the clear iciness at the top of Africa. The breathtaking view of the sprawling country below at the summit, Uhuru Point, sums up the whole trip awesomely. Embark on this adventure with us
