Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa

24th May, 2016 | Article By Congema Safaris

Do you want to challenge yourself? Join us for a memorable journey to the top of the highest mountain in Africa. Kilimanjaro (often called just Kili) with its 5895 meters is also the highest free standing mountain in the world and one of the world’s most accessible high summits. All the main routes up the mountain are really just walking routes, so you don’t need to be a mountaineer. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s easy…

But there is so much more to Kili than her summit. You walk through four different vegetation zones: cultivated zone and forest (800m-2800m), heath and moorland (2800m-4000m), alpine desert (4000m-5000m), ice cap (5000m-5895m). It is said that to climb up Kilimanjaro is to walk through four seasons in four days.

There are 6 ascent routes to choose from. They differ in scenery and toughness. If you have difficulty in choosing the route just contact us and ask for our recommendation.

A trek to Kilimanjaro will surely give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience! It can be challenging but it will certainly be rewarding…
