Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro /ˌkɪlɪmənˈdʒɑːroʊ/, with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcanic mountain in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa and rises approximately 4,877 metres (16,001 ft) from its base to 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. The first recorded ascent to the summit of the mountain was by Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller in 1889. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers. — Wiki

Kilimanjaro Trekking

Kilimanjaro is generally done as a 5-9 day trek from a handful of different trailheads. A 7 day trek seems to be the sweet spot for most people, providing adequate acclimatization time for most reasonably healthy individuals.

Kilimanjaro Safari

Kilimanjaro is often done in conjunction with a safari, since the mountain is located in close proximity to national parks and wildlife areas with fairly consistent seasonal patterns for wildlife viewing.
