Welcome to the start of your journey to the ‘Roof of Africa’. Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, affectionately known as ‘Kili’, is Africa’s highest mountain at 5895m. Kili is also the world’s highest free-standing mountain and its towering snow-capped, symmetrical cone is a world-recognised African image.
A World Heritage site, the whole mountain is designated a national park and Kilimanjaro National Park covers an area of some 755 square kilometres, consisting of vast areas of montane forest with unique moorland flora and alpine desert at higher altitudes.
Climbing Kili is the adventure of a lifetime for many visitors to Tanzania. As the highest ‘walkable’ mountain in the world, the trek is not a technical climb but is, nevertheless, a serious challenge.
