The most popular hiking and climbing destination in Africa is situated right here in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and also the highest free-standing mountain in the world, is a magnet for thousands of climbers from all around the world.

Mount Kilimanjaro  with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, with its summit about 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) from its base, and 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. The first people known to have reached the summit of the mountain were Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller, in 1889. The mountain is part of Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields.

Various climbing routes wind up Kilimanjaro offering an overwhelming experience to the intrepid climbers who scale the dramatic peak.

Climbers pass through changing vegetation zones: lush tropical mountain forest, alpine moorland, arctic desert, and finally arctic conditions where snow and ice prevail. Most routes require no special knowledge or training.
