Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park

One of the world's most renowned summits, Mount Kilimanjaro attracts trekkers from across the globe, aspiring to reach its glacial peaks. With three volcanic cones, this dormant volcano holds the title of highest mountain in Africa, rising an awe-inspiring 5,895 m (19,341 ft) into the clouds. One-day tours let you walk the mountain's lower terrain and gaze up at some spectacular scenery. Experienced hikers can take on a larger expedition, averaging around nine days. The most popular times of year are the dry seasons (January through mid-March and June through October), as these afford better conditions and clearer vistas. Arrange treks through a tour operator. Make Mount Kilimanjaro a part of your Kilimanjaro National Park vacation plans using our Kilimanjaro National Park day trip planning website .

  • my friends mountain has a higher review so lets hope this makes it higher
  • Incredible experience. From tropical jungle to snow capped mountain in a few days of hiking. Surreal.
  • Great experience would recommend going again. My family had a great time.
  • To sandy, indignious beggars asking for food with their pet rhinos, brutally gets rid of the experience, would not recommend, Mt Everest is far superior.
  • Nice place to see
