Ascend Africa's highest mountain and the world's tallest freestanding mountain, rising to 5,895 meters from its surrounding savanna!

We invite you to 7 trekking days that will take us through all 4 climate seasons and 6 unique ecosystems from grassland, rainforest, low-growing shrub, moorland, alpine desert, to the glacier on top of a dormant volcanic cone - the only glacier close to the Equator.

After conquering Uhuru Peak, Kilimanjaro's summit, we will lay back and relax for a few days on the white coral sandy beaches and turquoise lagoons of Zanzibar Island.

We will climb Kilimanjaro on the epic Machame route, most scenic and beautiful route, having a key topography that allows trekkers to climb high and sleep low, helping to better acclimatize.
