Africa / Kilimanjaro Climb

Snow-capped and visible for miles, Mount Kilimanjaro is an awe-inspiring sight and at 5,895 metres high it is the jewel in Tanzania’s crown. Challenging, rewarding and exhilarating in equal measure, reaching Africa’s highest peak – also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world – is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, trekking through valleys and forested slopes, then onto rocky terrain and steep ascents, the views intensifying the higher you climb. There are several routes up the mountain, each with varying degrees of difficulty. Machame, our featured route, is considered by many to be the most beautiful and scenic route, passing through tropical montane rainforest to the snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro.
