“Roof of Africa” - these words already cause a great desire to visit the top of Kilimanjaro and look down on Africa.
Kilimanjaro is a volcano and it is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. To be honest, who wouldn’t dream of meeting the dawn standing at the top of the highest mountain on the continent? Here they are - the most beautiful DAWNS are on Mount Kilimanjaro.
The mountain is located 300 km south of the equator in Tanzania, on the border with Kenya, in East Africa. It has three separate mountain peaks: in the west it is Shira (3962 m), in the east it is Mawenzi (5149 m), and the highest central peak is called Kibo (5895 m). Glaciers lie on the northern and southern slopes of Kibo, and tropical jungles lie at the foot of the mountain. The highest point of the Kibo mountain range is Uhuru Peak. That's the peak everyone wants to conquer. Trails of different routes wind in ribbons to the top of Uhuru Peak . There are complex and sports routes, there are also easy and walking ones. Some are circular and some are linear. But they are all incredibly beautiful and diverse.
Kilimanjaro routes allow you to get acquainted with the most diverse landscapes of Africa, to pass all weather zones, from the hot savannah and heavy rain, to a snow blizzard at an altitude of five thousand meters. The service on the mountain is arranged in such a way that it allows you to enjoy the ascent every second. Who wouldn't like to wake up in the jungle zone to the sound of birds singing and have aromatic coffee. Or come to the camp after a day's march in the pouring rain, and in the camp a tent is already waiting for you with a neatly laid out sleeping bag inside. And the views! The views that open from the slopes of the mountain are stunning!
Climbing Kilimanjaro does not require special training but to be among those who conquered the summit you need to make a lot of effort and take the preparation for the ascent seriously.
We suggest you climb Mount Kilimanjaro along one of the most beautiful routes - the Lemosho Route. In this case you do not have to go up and down one way. And you will see mountains and valleys from different sides.
