Why go there?

Kilimanjaro is 5895 meters high an extinct volcano, with 3 peaks: Kibo, Shira and Mawenzi ! The highest summit of Africa is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The mountain is situated completely in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro is a non technical mountain that can be climbed by anyone with a fair good condition and patience. There are many different routes, each passing rainforest, moorland and glaciers. Most people seize the opportunity of being in wildlife paradise and couple a safari to their trip as well.

Location: 3°04' South Latitude, 37°21' East longitude.

Kili is the easiest of all the 7 Summis, so the most popular. Our route goes up moderate slopes and is provided with rather comfortable huts (with dormitories and dining rooms).
