Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and one of the largest free standing mountains in the world. This is a challenge of a lifetime and one on many people's bucket lists!

The summit rises high above the dusty plains and huge permanent glaciers flow down from its peaks; these views are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally.

The trek takes the Machame route, allowing gradual acclimatisation and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. This is a challenging trek at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive and well known mountains in the world.
