MT KILIMANJARO

Mount Kilimanjaro is located at the north/eastern tip of Tanzania. Africa’s highest mountain stands a proud 5,896m and is surrounded by a national park of 756 sq. km. All routes lead to the summit circuit and Twin Peaks Kibo and Mawenzi (5,149 m), which are adjoined by a saddle of 11 km. The collapsed peak Shira (3,962 m) has developed a crater.

Hiking the magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak is a prize sought after by many, and we can organize climbs of various duration. For many years, hikers have even included people with disabilities in different ways, during charity sponsored climbs.

For the able-bodied however, it remains a challenge and only 20% make it to the peak. Full details can be obtained on request.

For the adventurous, a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro is a must, taking you through the mists of equatorial jungle to reach the snows and breath-taking views from the summit.

Activities

The upward track has 3 volcanic centres, Shira, Kibo, Mawenzi. It makes a way through forests that vary constantly with the altitude and finally opens out into open moorland below rocky, snow covered Kibo plateau. Climbs are easily arranged from Moshi or Arusha, and are the perfect start to your trip in Tanzania.

Climbs can be done at any time of the year. However, Christmas and New Year are usually fully booked and April, May and November is the rainy season. You should please first check with your doctor to ensure that you are physically fit and fully aware of the dangers of climbing at this high altitude.
