Mount Kilimanjaro - Roof of Africa.

Mt. Kilimanjaro rises majestically from the rolling and hot savannah of Tanzania to a barren and snowcapped 3-1/2 mile high peak.  At an altitude of 5895 meters above sea level Kilimanjaro is the "roof-top of Africa" and one of the largest free standing mountains in the world.  Climbing Kilimanjaro is a must-do challenge for any visitor to East Africa.

Mount Kilimanjaro lies a scant 3 degrees south of the equator, on the northern boundary of Tanzania.  Its location on an open plain close to the Indian Ocean, and its great size and height strongly influence the climate, vegetation, animal life and the climbing conditions.  It is made up of three extinct volcanoes: Kibo 19,340 feet (5,895 meters), Mawenzi 16,896 feet (5,149 meters); and Shira 13,000 feet (3,962 meters). Apart from its dramatic geological features Mount Kilimanjaro is the perfect destination for wildlife and plant enthusiasts. Kilimanjaro contains an example of virtually every ecosystem on earth.  Glacier, snowfield, desert, alpine moorland, savannah, and tropical jungle are among those found on the mountain, making the descent from the summit is similar to walking from the North Pole to the Equator in the space of a few kilometers.


Kilimanjaro Climbs & Wildlife Safari

The love of mountains runs deep at MEM Tours and Safaris Ltd, and an ascent of Kilimanjaro—Africa’s highest at 19,340'ft—is tops on our list of “great treks of the world.” But this “Summit to African wildlife” adventure has it all—an incredible combination of the rewarding challenge of ascending Africa’s highest peak, the thrill of walking through an East African village, game-viewing in different National Parks in Tanzania, and then some —a true experience of the African wilderness you won’t find anywhere else.
