Mount Kilimanjaro

National Park

This National Park is A UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the famous Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Mount Kilimanjaro is 5,895 meters high and has 5 routes you can choose from to ascend to the ‘Roof of Africa.’ If you are not much of a hiker or trekker, you can enjoy a one day hike through the scenic rainforest of Mount Kilimanjaro. There is a good chance you will see wildlife such as bush babies, blue monkeys and western black and white colobus monkeys suspended from the trees.

If your goal is to stand on the ‘Roof of Africa,’ we are help to guide you three! After all, the best view comes after the hardest climb. No matter what route you choose, we recommend you bring waterproof, windproof and warm gear. You will be hiking and trekking through 5 climates, so we recommend a change of clothes per day.
The hike starts through a hot tropical forest (800 to 1,900 meters) and turns into a lush montane forest inhabited with wildlife such as antelope, elephant and primates (1,900 to 2,900 meters). Then it turns into a moorland full of heather and lobelias (2,900 to 4,000 metres). The final ascend is through a barren alpine desert (4,000 to 5,000 metres) and the final stretch brings you to the cool Uhuru Peak (5,895 metres).
The 6 day Marangu Trail is the oldest trail to ascend Mount Kilimanjaro, but there are other routes to choose from such as Machame, Rongai, Lemosho and Umbwe. Keep in mind that a longer route allows you to acclimatise and increase your chance of summiting the ‘Roof of Africa.
