About Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimajaro is also known as Roof of Africa or the Crown of Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s tallest free standing peak. Standing at 5,895 metres (19341 feet) above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is also  located just 330km from the equator.

Kilimanjaro name comes from Kilima (mountain) and njaro (shining) in Kiswahili. Kilimanjaro was first conquered in 1889 by Hans Mayer and is now one Africa’s top destinations.

Unlike other mountains around the world, Kilimanjaro is walkable and is not technical, meaning no climbing gear is required. Climbers walks every day between 4 and 8 hrs at a very slow pace, as we say in Kiswahili ‘polepole’.

Mount Kilimanjaro consists of three volcanic summits. Shira (3,962 m) the oldest of the three summits is already extinct. Mawenzi (5,149 m) and the youngest Kibo (5,895 m) are dormant and could erupt again.
