You have the option of joining a group or taking a private packaged safari and also can be undertaken as a group trek for students, schools and colleges.

The great Mt. Kilimanjaro is not only the highest mountain in Africa but is also the world’s tallest free standing mountain at 5,985m. A Mt. Kilimanjaro trek will give you the opportunity to view both Tanzania and Kenya in their splendour. The trek will also showcase some unique feature, you will notice that its lower slopes are dense with lush forest yet the mountain is surrounded by a vast dry savannah land. Its caldera is also covered with ice yet the dormant volcano is situated near the Equator.
