The highest free-standing mountain on Earth


Probably the best-known of all the mountains in Tanzania and on the African continent is Kilimanjaro (= "White Mountain"). With its 5896 m it is the highest mountain in Africa and at the same time the highest free-standing mountain in the world. It is located in north-eastern Tanzania and is covered with snow on the summit. In 1987 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This can be climbed on different routes. For example, there are the Marangu route (6 days), the Machame route (9 days), the Rongai route (6 days) and the Lemosho route (7 days).

At the end of each route, the roof of Africa awaits you. An adventure that you will not forget in your whole life.
