Mount Kilimanjaro is located in northern Tanzania in East Africa, not far from the border to Kenya.There are many things to consider while planning your Mount Kilimanjaro climb. Lack of information, and, consequently, failure to make proper preparations is the main reason. Why do even young and fit trekkers sometimes fail to reach the summit? On the other hand, armed with the right information, climbers of all ages and physical fitness levels confidently make their way to the top.
Anyone from children over the age of 10 to older generations in their 60s and 70s! All you need is determination and the will to get to the summit. The real challenge with climbing Kilimanjaro is the altitude and the rate of ascent. Don’t worry, we will be with you every step of the way! Our guides are highly skilled professionals and are a key component to your success.
If you are a beginner at hiking or backpacking, don’t worry! Up to half of our clients have had little or no experience in the outdoors before booking their expeditions with us. And they performed just as well as our seasoned climbers on Kilimanjaro. The summit is definitely within your reach!
After the climb, watch bull elephants walk across the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater and leopards lounge in the Acacia trees of the Tarangire, embarking on a safari to Tanzania’s famous National Parks where we will witness one of the greatest wildlife spectacles found anywhere on earth.
This may work out fine if you are lucky but the agent cannot control what happens on the mountain so you just have to hope. Not only that, but agents get a commission from the operator that bumps up the price you pay. So when you are deciding which company to choose for your Kilimanjaro climb choose one of the best operators -

Besides, large groups of hippos, crocodiles, and wild dogs live here.

The plains that stretch southeast from Eronera into Ngorongoro Conservation Area form the Serengeti’s main wildebeest calving grounds between December to April.
