Location

This mountain trekking safari takes place in Mount Kilimanjaro. It is situated near the town of Moshi in northern Tanzania. The snow-covered splendor of the highest mountain in Africa is visible on a clear day from more than 250 kilometers away.

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and stands at 5,895 meters, three degrees south of the equator. It is a dormant volcano and comprised of three extinct volcanoes: Kibo at 5,895 meters (19,340 feet), Mawenzi at 5,149 meters (16,896 feet), and Shira at 3,962 meters (13,000 feet). It is surrounded by dense forests full of a dazzling variety of flora and fauna.

The various trails first pass through lush rainforests before reaching heather and open moorland where giant lobelia and huge, cactus-like groundsel grow. Above this moorland is the almost lunar landscape of an alpine desert which stretches between the two peaks of Kibo, the flat-topped dome at the center, and Mawenzi, a group of jagged points and pinnacles on the eastern side. The ascent of Kilimanjaro can be done from six routes: Mweka, Umbwe, Shira, Rongai, Machame, and the Marangu Route, which is the easier and the most popular.

Depending on which route one wants to use, the climb of Kilimanjaro can take between four nights to six nights on the mountain. The two most popular routes are Marangu and Machame.
