Treat yourself to a life-changing adventure by climbing the highest mountain in Africa
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, located in Northeast Tanzania, near the Kenya border. Kilimanjaro is an extinct volcano, and is one of the most massive in the world. It towers 15,000 feet above the surrounding arid plains, and 2.5 square miles of its surface are over 18,500 feet. Beneath its ice dome, snow extends down long gullies that have been eroded in the mountain sides. Kilimanjaro’s summit crater, known as Kibo, measures an incredible 1.5 miles across. The highest point on Kibo’s steep rim is Uhuru, the highest peak in Africa. Nestled in the center of Kibo is a smaller crater, 600-feet deep in sulfurous ashes. Mawenzi (16,893 ft), Kilimanjaro’s smaller second cone, is seven miles east of Kibo, separated by a long saddle. Mawenzi is an older cone, jagged from erosion, with sheer faces on all sides. Despite its lower elevation, Mawenzi is the more difficult climb, and no approach is possible without rock climbing and/or snow and ice climbing skills. Mawenzi is the third highest peak in Africa.
We also offer trekking packages for Mount Meru, which is located in Arusha National park. It has an altitude of 4,566m and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania. This mountain is abdormant volcano and it offers a magnificent view of the imposing Mt. Kilimanjaro and the spectacular Rift Valley for visitors who climb Mt. Meru. Also the area hosts a wonderful variety of species of birds, both resident and migrant.
