Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Mt Kilimanjaro with 5,895m (19,340 feet) above sea level, Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest peak and the world's highest free-standing mountain. As such - and aided by its relatively easy ascent - Kilimanjaro has become a major destination for mountaineers and trekkers from around the world.

Positioned close to the Equator (330km south), Mount Kilimanjaro is famous as Africa's snow-capped mountain looming over the plains of the savannah. Kilimanjaro National Park protects the area above 2,700m (8,850 ft), on the mountain and includes the moorland and highland zones, Shira Plateau, Kibo and Mawenzi peaks.
