Discover Mount Kilimanjaro
A free-standing, snow-covered dormant volcano, majestic Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa. Located in northeast Tanzania, it can be seen from far into Kenya and Amboseli National Park.
Kilimanjaro is not the most remote mountain and is not the most difficult due to the 75,000 mountaineering enthusiasts who climb it each year. Although it is undoubtedly a test of one’s stamina, altitude sickness is the main barrier that prevents hikers from reaching Kilimanjaro’s summit.
We still heartily recommend it to anyone with a passion for mountaineering, despite the fact that it has grown to be a very well-liked challenge and the environment is a little crowded with other climbers.
It would be a shame not to visit the northern parks and take in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, or Tarangire while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, which is situated in North Tanzania next to some of the best safari parks in Africa.
On Mount Kilimanjaro, there are hundreds of operators, but over the years, we have settled on working with just two firms based on their safety record, quality of their guides, and price. Kilimanjaro climbing can be extremely dangerous, so choosing the right group is crucial.
- Beautiful Beaches: Zanzibar and Pemba Islands just off Tanzania’s coast offer incredible beach destinations from where you can relax after your safari.
- Big Cats: Few places in Africa can offer the density of big cats as the great Serengeti National Park.
- The Chimpanzees of Mahale: Staying on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, daily treks depart into the forest to track our closest relatives.
- Kilimanjaro: World’s highest freestanding mountain and the highest point on the African continent.
- The Great Wildebeest Migration: One of nature’s truly great events, as the enormous herds migrate towards fresh pastures.
- Namiri Plains: This huge expanse of the Serengeti is one of the ultimate big cat locations.
