About Kilimanjaro Experience

Why summit Kilimanjaro?

At 5895m high, the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is not only the highest mountain in Africa and one if the world’s “Great 7” summits, it is also the highest free-standing mountain in the world.

This dormant volcano has drawn climbers from all over the world for more than 120 years.

Aside from the striking natural beauty, the breathtaking vistas and sunsets and the distinct and often other-worldly ecological systems that are boasted by this snow-capped giant, Kilimanjaro’s popularity also stems from the fact that it can be summited without technical gear or extreme fitness, and fairly cheaply. You will need willpower, a sense of humour, a healthy body and a little bit of luck. Aside from that, with Kilimanjaro-Experience at your side there is nothing to stop you from standing on the roof of Africa, a moment that you will never forget.

“Seize the Day”, we often hear this cliché from the movie but don’t know what and how to seize it. Going up Kilimanjaro and opening our eyes to the spectacular safaris make us all seize every minutes during this trip.
