Mount Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro and Amboseli Elephants

The majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak and most famous mountain in Africa. Rising to 5,895 meters above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro rises from the dry plains, through a wide belt of forest and high alpine heath to an almost bare desert and finally the snow capped summit, Uhuru Peak, just 3 degrees south of the Equator. To scale the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro is a challenge – more from the altitude than the actual hike itself.

At the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro lie the busy and colourful towns of Moshi, Marangu and Arusha. Arusha is one of Tanzania’s fastest growing towns, and the “safari capital” of the north as it is the gateway to the Northern Circuit Safaris, including the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
