Trekking in Africa

It's not just about Kilimanjaro...
While Kilimanjaro is by far the most famous trekking route in Africa, there are many others. Must Do Treks in Africa include:
  • Trekking Jebel Toubkhal in Morocco - North Africa's highest peak
  • Mount Kenya - the highest peak in Kenya
  • Mount Stanley in the Mountains of the Moon, also known as Ruwenzori Mountains in Central Africa
  • And many more!


Trekking Kilimanjaro

It's Africa's highest peak - and it's within your grasp!
 
Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa and one of the 'Seven Summits' - the highest peaks on each continent. However, it is a realistic goal for fit trekkers and its lofty summit, at 5895m above sea level, is reached by thousands of trekkers each year. That said, anyone who attempts the peak should be aware that the high altitude is a real danger and, unfortunately several trekkers who ignore the risks die each year.
 
It is only possible to trek on Kilimanjaro if accompanied by a guide and almost everyone books with an adventure travel or trekking company. Prices for these trips vary wildly - our advice is to be aware that you get what you pay for. Cheaper trips will have few guides, less satisfactory meals (an important consideration on a challenging trek like this) and poor conditions and wages for the local staff, which includes guides, chefs and porters. More expensive trips will have a better ratio of guides to clients which makes a real difference when it comes to your chances of summiting. They will also look after you better on the trip and, just as importantly, will look after their local staff on and off the mountain, paying them a fair wage.
 
As Kilimanjaro is the type of peak trek that most people only do once, our advice is to bite the bullet, pay a bit extra and increase your chances of making the summit. By booking with a reputable company, you can also rest assured that the local team who will assist you on the mountain are properly looked after.
