Get to Know Kilimanjaro National Park

This snow-capped peak near the equator in Africa is one of the world’s Seven Summits climbing challenges

Kilimanjaro changed the way people thought of Africa. The first European missionary to see a snow-capped mountain this close to the equator in Africa was regarded as crazy and sent home in 1848. Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcanic mountain in Kilimanjaro National Park, Tanzania. It’s the highest peak in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. For more than a century people have been climbing it, the first successful attempt by German geologist Hans Meyer in 1889. Today there are seven trekking routes on Kilimanjaro – six up to the summit and one, called Mweka, which everyone uses for the descent.

FAQs about Kilimanjaro

  • I would recommend that when you are certain about your dates and if you are happy with the package, quote, booking and price to make a deposit payment to secure your booking.
  • Availability is always a factor, you might find that there is nothing available at a later stage.
  • There is no need to go overboard with fitness preparation for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
  • However, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a physical undertaking, so you should prepare yourself accordingly with a Kilimanjaro training program.
  • Being in good shape is important in many aspects - obviously strong and conditional legs make it easier to walk uphill and downhill for sustained periods of time.
  • Finally, a positive mental attitude can work wonders for you when fatigue and doubts arise.
