Mount Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, standing at 19,340 feet (5,896m). Located in Northern Tanzania, bordering Kenya, it also spans five different ecological zones, making it one of the most varied peaks on Earth to climb.

Mount Kilimanjaro features two peaks, Kibo (5,893m) and Mawenzi (5,149m). Its breathtaking beauty has to be seen and experienced by one personally to really appreciate the amazing environment and surrounding landscape. Ascent and descent takes about 5 days and can be climbed by any normal fit person with the assistance of experienced mountain guides and porters.

Mount Kilimanjaro can be climbed at any time of the year but the best time is considered to be from August to October and January to March. It is wet in the rainforest during the rains in April, May, June and November. December through to February are the warmest months but then weather is very unpredictable in this area and therefore you should check with us nearer your adventure trekking departure.
