Mt.Kilimanjaro Climb

This is Africa's highest mountain and the most awesome sight. Snowcapped and not yet extinct, at (5895m / 91340ft), it is surrounded by rain forest and is home to many animals such as Elephants, Buffaloes, Rhinos, Leopards, and Monkeys. Monkeys and Elands are the only animals that can be seen at the
s ummits of Mawenzi and Kibo Peaks. The snow-capped peak, the dream of scaling the summit, watching dawn break and gazing out over the vast African wildlife, plains and bushland is an experience not to be missed. Kilimanjaro can be trekked at any time of the year, however, there is usually a lot of rain during April, May and November which makes trekking even more challenging.
