Explore Kilimanjaro National Park

The square peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa reaching to a height of 5,895 meters above sea level, was described by Ernest Hemingway as being “as vast as all the earth, huge, lofty and astonishingly white in the sun.”

Mount Kilimanjaro, which is located in northern Tanzania close to the town of Moshi, climbs from the desert-like plains, through a broad band of woodland, high alpine heath, and ultimately to its snow-capped peak, known as Uhuru Peak, which is just 3 degrees south of the equator. The three extinct volcanoes that make up Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the tallest free-standing mountains in the world, are Kibo (5895 m), Mawenzi (5149 m), and Shira (3962 m) (13000 ft).

Six routes are available for climbing Kilimanjaro: Mweka, Umbwe, Shira, Rongai, Machame, and the Marangu Route, which is the shortest and most well-liked. The length of the Kilimanjaro climb might range from four to six nights on the mountain, depending on the route chosen.
