I had two great guides to lead me up the mountain- Andrew & Babaluu. Andrew taught me about pacing and I learned a lot of Swahili on my way up. That night we had a great dinner. I honestly don’t know how our cook “Shakira” was able to cook such great tasting food with just a small fire. The food was better than I could have imagined for a hiking trip.
We recently returned from both climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and going on a safari with FOCUS IN AFRICA. What a fantastic job they did for us….Nelson Mbise, the guides and porters are the unsung heroes that made it all happen for us. We could not have been happier with our trip and were thrilled to have made it to the summit!
Embark on your Adventure with Focus in Africa
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, located in Northeast Tanzania, near the Kenya border. Kilimanjaro is an extinct volcano, and is one of the most massive in the world. It towers 15,000 feet above the surrounding arid plains, and 2.5 square miles of its surface are over 18,500 feet. Beneath its ice dome, snow extends down long gullies that have been eroded in the mountain sides. Kilimanjaro’s summit crater, known as Kibo, measures an incredible 1.5 miles across. The highest point on Kibo’s steep rim is Uhuru, the highest peak in Africa. Nestled in the center of Kibo is a smaller crater, 600-feet deep in sulfurous ashes. Mawenzi (16,893 ft), Kilimanjaro’s smaller second cone, is seven miles east of Kibo, separated by a long saddle. Mawenzi is an older cone, jagged from erosion, with sheer faces on all sides. Despite its lower elevation, Mawenzi is the more difficult climb, and no approach is possible without rock climbing and/or snow and ice climbing skills. Mawenzi is the third highest peak in Africa.Contact us for more information
The approach and climb provides spectacular diversity, from scrub-lands thick with African wildlife to lush forests to flowering alpine tundra. All this finally gives way to snow and rock above 15,000 feet. Kilimanjaro’s summit crater, known as Kibo, measures an incredible 1.5 miles across. We provide several different routes for your climb, including: (click on route to be taken to itinerary)
