Tanzania Safari

Mount Kilimanjaro:

At 5896m Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain and one of the continent's magnificent sights, it’s slopes and glaciers shimmering above the rising clouds, located near the town of Moshi and is a protected area, carefully regulated for climbers to enjoy without leaving a trace of their presence.

The mountain’s ecosystems are as strikingly beautiful as they are varied and diverse. On the lowland slopes, much of the mountain is farmland, with coffee, banana, cassava, and maize crops grown for subsistence and cash sale. A few larger coffee farms still exist on the lower slopes, but much of the area outside the national park has been subdivided into small plots. Once inside the park, thick lowland forest covers the lower altitudes and breaks into alpine meadows once the air begins to thin. Near the peak, the landscape is harsh and barren, with rocks and ice the predominant features above a breathtaking African view.
Climbing mount Kilimanjaro is the highlight of most visitors’ experiences in Tanzania. Hiking on the ‘rooftop of Africa’,  the highest point on the continent at 5896 meters, it is the adventure of a lifetime, especially if paced well, everyone from seasoned trekkers to first-time enthusiasts can scale the snowy peak.
