Safari Overview

Dominating the landscape like no other mountain, iconic and instantly recognisable, Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is the highest peak in Africa and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain at 5895 metres. To climb Kilimanjaro is a great challenge and entirely feasible for the active traveller or keen walker looking for something new. In a matter of days you’ll climb Kilimanjaro from the hot plains of Africa through grasslands, tropical rain forest, alpine meadows, moorlands and desert uplands onto snow and ice.Many people have never slept in a tent before, or perhaps not for many years, so it’s well worth it, if you can borrow one, to give it a try before you arrive. On the mountain our staff will pitch your tent for you and pop your bags inside plus a comfortable mattress. You do need to bring a sleeping bag, or you can rent one from us. You need to be organised in a tent and although we use 3 / 4 person tents, we only put 2 people in them, so you have plenty of room and they’re really good quality tents (we use the same tents on Mt Everest). You can keep your kit bag in the tent, or outside in the porch and best to only take out what you need for the night. Keeping your kit together saves things getting lost or wet. If you haven’t slept in a sleeping bag before then initially, they will feel a bit restrictive, however on a cold evening, after a days walking, it’s bliss to climb into one and enjoy a few pages of a good book. Again, do use your sleeping bag before you arrive as they also have different ways to vent and wrap up warm in – get to know it well before you come.
