Mount Kilimanjaro Climb

Mount Kilimanjaro, this legendary mountain promises to whisk you up to the roof of Africa, to places where snow fills ancient craters above sweeping plains trodden by elephant herds.

Before you climb Mount Kilimanjaro, you should know it is not going to be easy. There’s 19,341 feet (5,895 meters) of elevation and several days of hard trekking between you and the summit.

But don’t let this deter you because there’s really nowhere quite like it on the planet! The whole climb up this imposing volcano that soars above the savannahs of the East Africa Rift Valley is a journey you’ll never forget. The scenery is never the same on two days – one day you’re navigating lush forests, the next you’re crossing scree-covered lava fields or staring in the face of glaciers.
