Note from the director

Kilimanjaro- The highest freestanding John, Director, has climbed Kilimanjaro 3 times.mountain in the world!

Mt. Kilimanjaro lies 3 degrees below the equator, is contained entirely within Tanzania and is one of Africa’s youngest volcanoes. It peers down to Kenya on its northern border, and covers an area of over 5 100 square kilometres, thrusting over five kilometres into the sky! Its top is permanently ice-capped and offers both the the hiker and mountaineer a rare challenge.

At 5 895 metres it is Africa’s highest mountain and one of the legendary 7 Summits. Although not to be taken lightly, any reasonably fit person can reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, and there are several routes available. You will need a minimum of five days for the hike (but preferably six or more days), and you ascend from the steaming tropical rain forests, through heath land, to alpine desert, finally reaching the permanent glaciers and the summit, Uhuru Peak.
