Mount Kilimanjaro defies belief. Who would have thought that a mountain almost 6000m high could exist so close to the equator? And to prove it's no fluke, Mount Kenya is just over the border! From its snowcapped peak to elephants and giraffe basking in the forests and plains below, Kili really is one of the iconic images of Africa.
Formed by massive volcanic eruptions some 750 000 years ago, Kilimanjaro is considered a dormant, rather than dead, volcano. There are a number of routes up though the most popular by far is the Marangu Route - this involves at least 5 days of climbing.
But most people who visit this area do not summit the mountain. It is well worth a visit just to check out the base camp and see wild animals roaming the plains and lush forest at the foothills of Kili. There are many short walks and activities to suit everyone's needs.
