Kilimanjaro National Park

Written by 

Home to an African icon

“Kilimanjaro. The name itself is a metaphor for the compelling beauty of East Africa. Shrouded in mystery, Kili spends much of its day veiled in clouds. But when it does deign to show itself it is utterly inspirational…”

Kilimanjaro’s distinctive silhouette and snow-capped peak form one of Africa’s most iconic sights – rising majestically above the surrounding plains. Not only is it the highest peak on the continent, at 5,895m, it is also the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro is one of the world's most accessible high summits – most climbers reach the top with little more than a walking stick, proper clothing and determination.

But there is so much more to Kili than her summit. The ascent of the slopes is a virtual climatic world tour, from the tropics to the Arctic. Even before you cross the national park boundary (at 2,700m), the cultivated foothills give way to lush montane forest, inhabited by elusive elephant, leopard, buffalo, the endangered Abbot’s duiker, and other small antelope and primates. Finally, the last remnants of vegetation give way to ice and snow – and the magnificent Roof of Africa.

For those that don’t want to undertake the ‘long uphill walk’ to Uhuru Peak, an opportunity to spend a night within sight of Kili is not to be missed.
