On the other hand, Climbing Kilimanjaro does not require any technical skills or special equipment, just some physical fitness and determination. Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain on earth. Crowned with an everlasting snow-cap, this majestic mountain can be found inside the Kilimanjaro National Park of Tanzania.

Traditionally Mount Kenya is the less climbed, smaller brother of Mount Kilimanjaro, however it should not be underestimated and many people who have climbed it prefer the wilderness, abundant wildlife and stunning mountain lakes that you find on Mount Kenya. Point Lenana is a feasible trekking peak and also currently the world’s highest via ferrata summit route, which adds to the challenge and enjoyment. The panoramic views of the surrounding peaks, valleys and savannah make a trek on this mountain a thoroughly enjoyable African experience.

What to Expect on 13 Days Africa Mountain Climbing Mount Kenya Mount Kilimanjaro
Africa Mountain Climbing Mount Kenya Mount and Kilimanjaro Hiking

The 13 Days Africa Mountain Climbing Mount Kenya Mount Kilimanjaro Hiking Adventure Safari crew will usually consist of a guide, cook, porter for the cooking gear plus a personal porter per trekker. It has been said before, but a well-experienced guide is so important on Mount Kenya, for two reasons; one they will regulate your pace, be able to draw on their experience to diagnose altitude sickness symptoms and have the confidence to make critical decisions and two their knowledge of the wildlife and fauna on the mountain will bring the environment alive. It is fair to say that all the guides will have a good knowledge of the routes, but only the good guides will have wildlife knowledge and experience of dealing with altitude sickness problems.

  • All Ground Transport All the park fees as well as camping fees
  • Three meals per day while in the mountain
  • Guide Cook Porters Drinking Water
  • Transfer from Nairobi to Moshi Tanzania
