Trek Kilimanjaro

Trek Kilimanjaro has been organised through the specialised outdoor activities tour operator, Classic Tours.

Here are some initial details:

  • Mount Kilimanjaro, at 5895m (19,340ft) is Africa's highest mountain; it is a major attraction for mountaineers.
  • Very warm clothes are required for the last section of the climb. The ascent takes about six days, allowing for time to acclimatise before tackling the final trek to the summit.
  • Within Tanzania's national parks, which extend over some 33,660 sq km (13,000 sq miles), can be found one of the largest, wildest animal populations in the world.
  • The parks play host to wildebeest, monkey, antelope, lion, cheetah, crocodile, gazelle and flamingo to name but a few. It offers some of the best wildlife spotting opportunities on the continent.
  • The Selous Game Reserve is larger than Switzerland and covers one sixth of Tanzania's land surface.
