Mount Kilimanjaro is the world's highest free-standing, snow-covered equatorial mountain. The towering snow-covered cone rising majestically from fertile green foothills has become one of Tanzania's most iconic images, and folkore about her resident man-eating spirits preserves a powerful sense of mysticism.
The cloud-swathed peaks of Africa’s highest mountain inspire climbers of all ages and abilities. This magnificent, still partially ice-capped peak crowns fantastically lush volcanic slopes, with plenty of wildlife interest along the lower forest trails. Climbs can be arranged up a variety of different routes, and with various options for accommodation. It is worth taking the time to acclimatise and enjoy the climb; altitude sickness accounts for most failed attempts to reach the summit.
