Kilimanjaro Climbing Tours
There is nothing quite like it anywhere else on Earth. The world’s tallest freestanding mountain and the only place on land where you can clearly see the curvature of the Earth! It is a challenge, no doubt, but the rewards for those who climb Kilimanjaro are immense - the friendly welcome and endless encouragement from the local guides, the warmth of the sun rising over Africa, and that final sense of achievement are unbeatable.When you stand atop the highest point in Africa on the broad summit, you sense the vast expanse of the continent that breathes to a different rhythm to the rest of our planet.
The blood red dawn begins to illuminate the surrounding plains of the Serengeti broken only by the occasional distant peak.Strange ice formations sit stranded on the coarse gravel around the summit plateau, like isolated icebergs when the tide’s gone out. Inexplicably, it makes you smile; you are really here.
