MT. KILIMANJARO

Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and one of the world’s most iconic peaks

Overview

Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and for many people, standing on its summit is a lifelong ambition. The snow-capped peak was first reached by German explorers in the late 19th Century and you will follow in their footsteps as you attempt to scale this mighty mountain! The world’s highest freestanding peak and tallest volcano, Kilimanjaro, rises alone from the surrounding savannah. Situated in Tanzania, this challenge is an amazing opportunity to not only climb Kilimanjaro, but also to explore East Africa and learn about the rich culture and varied landscapes of the region.
