Standing at 19,336 feet (5,895 metres), Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa and the largest freestanding mountain in the world. It is also one of the world’s only summits of similar height that can be accessed by a wide range of hikers of different fitness levels and abilities. Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro is a once in a lifetime experience and a draw for mountaineers and thrill-seekers the world over.
The park itself displays an astounding variety of environments. At lower altitudes, the mountain forest provides a home for elephants, buffalo and primates. Climb higher and the forest is overtaken by moorland topography. Higher still and you will come into the alpine desert zone. Finally, the ascent takes you to a glacier of snow and ice, where you stand, on the rooftop of Africa.
