Africa’s Highest Mountain & a Beacon for Adventure

One of the continents most magnificent sights, Kilimanjaro stands in splendid isolation above the surrounding plains with its snowy peak looming over the savannah.

Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain, and the highest single free standing mountain above sea level in the world: 5,895 m above sea level and about 4,900 m above its plateau base.

Located near the town of Moshi, Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano with three main volcanic peaks: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It is one of the world’s most accessible high summits and a beacon for visitors from around the world.

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is the highlight for many visitors. Few mountains can claim the grandeur of the absolutely spectacular views from the top. On a clear day you can see the Maasai Steppe, Mount Meru, Mount Longido and the ‘Mountain of God’, Ol Doinyo Lengai.

The whole of Kilimanjaro National Park covers an area of some 75,575 hectares and is home to a wealth of wildlife. More animals live in the lush tropical rainforests at the base of Kilimanjaro than reside in the highlands to ensure access to food and water.

Being an equatorial region, the rains are mostly unpredictable, it is possible to experience mostly dry weather during the rainy season and just as possible to have heavy rain during the dry season.

Due to its proximity to the equator, Mount Kilimanjaro’s temperature doesn’t really change from season to season. Instead, the temperatures on Mount Kilimanjaro are determined by the altitude and what time of day it is.

Average day temperatures year round in the Kilimanjaro region (Moshi); low between 15 and 19 and high 21 to 28. At the summit – between -7 to -29 degrees celsius.
