Mount Kilimanjaro

Tanzania Kilimanjaro National Park offers the easiest way to reach high summits for all types of hikers. Most of the climbers can reach the summit if equipped with the right gear and possess good fitness.

But there is so much more to enjoy than summiting the peak. The dramatic slopes of Kilimanjaro take you on a trip of a climatic world. The cultivated foot slopes lead to lush Montane forest. The park is inhabited by elusive elephant, buffalo, leopard, the endangered Abbot’s duiker, and other small antelope and primates. Higher still lays the moorland zone, where a cover of giant heather is studded with otherworldly giant lobelias.

During your visit to the park, you will get the opportunity to discover the culture of the authentic Maasai experience. Interaction with them and enjoying the food will surely give you a lifetime experience.
