Africa's highest mountain peak, at 5,895m above sea level, and the world's highest freestanding volcano, Kilimanjaro draws visitors with its awe and splendour. A world heritage site, it is home to the Chagga people, and to a wealth of birds and wildlife.
Kilimanjaro was formed over 1 million years ago by volcanic movement along the Rift Valley. The highest point is Uhuru Peak on Kibo, which is one of the Seven Summits of the world. The rewards of a climb are not just the conquering of the mountain – at the summit you will be at the top of Africa, watching the sun rise on a new day across the plains far below.
7 Day LEMOSHO
The Lemosho Route is a very beautiful and unspoilt route that still enjoys sighting of wild game along the forest section. For those seeking a quiet route away from the crowds it clearly a superior option for the first two days of movement. Thereafter, however, the route is precisely the same as the Machame Route.
