CLIMBING KILIMANJARO

Climbing Kilimanjaro is an incredible experience. Mt Kilimanjaro stands on the East African plateau in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro is the largest in a belt of about 20 volcanoes near the southern end of the East African Rift Valley.

 

Mt Kilimanjaro is a triple volcano with the youngest and central peak of Kibo being about 14km long. Mt Kilimanjaro volcano is deemed to be a dormant volcano. It is situated within Kilimanjaro National Park, which comprises all of the mountain mass of Kilimanjaro, above the tree line.

The name 'Kilimanjaro' has varying interpretations, from "Mountain of Greatness", Mountain of Whiteness", "Mountain of Caravans", and "Small Mountain of Caravans" . In Swahili, 'kilima' means top of the hill.

The First recorded successful ascent of Kilimanjaro was in 1889.
