Mountain Climbing

Description

Without a doubt, Tanzania’s best-known mountain and also the highest mountain in Africa is Mt Kilimanjaro with its peak at 5,895 m. There are six official climbing routes to the top and trekking durations vary from five to ten days. We specialise in four of the six routes: Marangu, Machame, Lemosho and Rongai.

Less known but just as attractive as Mt Kilimanjaro is its “smaller brother” Mt Meru which is located in the Arusha National Park. Mt Meru’s peak rises to a height of 4,566 m and is only 80 km away from Mt Kilimanjaro. The mountain slopes offer natural shelter to numerous animal species such as elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, baboons, colobus monkeys and antelopes, making your trek an adventurous one.

Other mountains in northern Tanzania are Mt Lomalasin (3,648 m), Mt Hanang (3,417 m), Ol Doinyo Lengai (2,878 m) and Mt Longido (2,637 m).

Even hikers without summit ambitions will love Tanzania. On a three to five day trek through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Lake Natron, you will experience the Masai culture and their way of life. In the western Usambara Mountains, you can visit breath-taking lookout points and do multi-day hikes. In southern Tanzania, you can go hiking through untouched nature with endemic flora and fauna in the Uluguru Mountains and the Udzungwa Mountains National Park.
