Mt Kilimanjaro

Trekking Kilimanjaro

Cresting above the laid-back, Tanzanian serengeti, Mount Kilimanjaro bewilders and romances all who lay eyes on its sloping, snow-capped peaks. Three volcanic cones stand proudly, squished together, like three uncompromising sisters competing for space and prominence, each with their startling appeal and dangers; the little sister Kibo has outgrown her elder siblings, standing at 5,895m and boasting an almost perfect symmetry, determined to stand out from an aerial perspective; middle Mawenzi is a rugged, craggy monster, squeezed against Kibo’s eaves, reaching 5,149m and intimidating climbers everywhere with her difficult passages; and the eldest of them all still thrusts her ridges tall, though sleep eternally, as the comparatively minute Shira (3,962m) serves as a blistering introductory lesson to those who dare to scale Kilimanjaro.

Though conquering the trails, trials and tribulations of Kilimanjaro shouldn’t be taken for granted, just about anybody of reasonable fitness levels and mental agility can enjoy the hard work required to get to the top.

If you fancy hanging around the foot of the triple giant, there is more to see than expected, as Kilimanjaro juts out of fertile rainforest and moorlands, subjecting adventurers like you to breathtaking views, diverse wildlife and exceedingly rare flora specimens.

Kilimanjaro is one of the few places in the world where you can jump between the sweaty beauty of a rainforest canopy, the biting breeze of the moor, the dry carpets of an alpine desert and the icy wonderland of a wintry subzone, in a matter of hours. Will you be able to resist twirling a victory dance on Kibo’s head?
