Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, Tanzania

April 4, 2013

Jutting out from Tanzania’s north-eastern plains is Mt Kilimanjaro, an almost perfectly shaped volcano. It’s truly a sight to behold. At a solid 5896m (19343ft), its snow-capped peak is the highest in Africa. On the lower levels, there are cultivated farmlands. Then you get a little higher, and you’re in a flourishing rainforest. A little higher, and you’re in an alpine meadow, and then, finally you’re crossing a barren lunar landscape before reaching the twin summits.

The mountain is not only for champion mountaineers. If you’ve got warm clothes, a well-equipped guide and a lot of determination, you’re halfway there. Anyone who puts their mind to it, can summit Africa’s highest mountain, and reaching the top, is utterly exhilarating and can only be explained by actually experiencing it. Seeing the sunrise over what seems like half of Africa spread out below, is just one of the wonders awaiting you up there.

Activities:

  • Climbing/Hiking
  • Spectacular sunrises
  • Exotic wildlife
  • Fantastic scenery
  • Peaceful, serene surroundings
  • Reaching the summit
