The emblematic Kililmanjaro raises at 5 891m and emerges from the surrounding savannah.

Africa’s highest point and world’s highest stand-alone mountain, the Kilimanjaro is composed of three volcanoes : the Shira (West), the Mawenzi (East) and the Kibo.

Kibo’s peak is named  “Uruhu” (freedom in Swahili).  Its famous icecap summit is in accelerated withdrawal. Sadly, it will probably have completely disappeared by 2050.

We suggest that you climb the Kili in seven days, with an extra acclimatization day, so that you have every chance to reach Uruhu’s peak.

Your support team will be composed of experienced professional duiges, Kilimanjaro specialists, porters and cook.

Climing the Kili does not require and specific moutaineering skills. However, its summit is hard-earned, therefore you mus be inscellent health and physical condition to reach Uruhu peak.

MoUnt Meru

Mount Meru, standing at 4 565 m overlooks the city of Arusha.

Its centre is composed of a vast cadera of 5 km in diameter.

Climbing Mount Meru is clearly less demanding than the Kili. However, the ascent is varied and the views are spectacular.
