3: Mt Kilimanjaro Expedition – Tanzania
Dates : 14th July 2018 & 15th Sept 2018
Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
Kilimanjaro has three volcanic cones, Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Mawenzi and Shira are extinct but Kibo, the highest peak, is dormant and could erupt again. The most recent activity was about 200 years ago; the last major eruption was 360,000 years ago.
About the trek terrain
Mount Kilimanjaro was born from catastrophic movements in the earth’s crust that created the Great Rift Valley. Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s most reachable high summits. Most visitors will reach the crater rim with little more than a walking stick, proper clothing and determination. And those who reach Uhuru Point, the actual summit, or Gilman’s point on the lip of the crater, will have earned their climbing certificates.
