Details of Kilimanjaro National Park

Home to Africa’s highest mountain and the tallest free standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro is dominated by the stunning vista that ‘Kili’ provides.

Standing at 5,985 metres tall, Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s most accessible summits. That isn’t to say that reaching Uhuru Point isn’t a massive achievement, but its lower reaches can be explored without any formal climbing training or professional equipment.

Beyond the climbing experience, Kilimanjaro offers the opportunity to explore a number of distinct climate zones as it ascends from the tropical savannah all the way up to the icy Arctic of its peak.
