If you’re looking for an exceptionally exciting experience that can’t be found anywhere else on the African continent, look no further than the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro. This dormant snow-capped volcano rises to an awe-inspiring elevation of 5,895 meters, towering over miles upon miles of rolling savanna below. While this iconic mountain can be glimpsed from neighboring Kenya, make no mistake: Mount Kilimanjaro lies firmly in Tanzanian soil. And despite its formidable appearance, Kilimanjaro is celebrated worldwide as one of the few high-elevation peaks which can be climbed by trekkers without technical expertise. So are you ready to reach the distinctive summit of this uniquely Tanzanian landmark for yourself? Chalema Tanzania Safaris is ready to be your guide to one of the most thrilling adventures in the country.
