Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain, is a snow-covered volcano. It is visible from Kenya and Amboseli National Park from northeast Tanzania.

Kilimanjaro is not the most difficult or untouched mountain because 75,000 mountaineers climb it annually. However, altitude sickness prevents most hikers from reaching Kilimanjaro’s summit. We recommend it to mountaineers despite its popularity and crowding.

It would be a shame to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro without visiting the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, or Tarangire, which are nearby.

We work with only two Mount Kilimanjaro operators based on safety, guides, and cost. Climbing Kilimanjaro is dangerous, so choose the right company!
