Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest mountain. It comprises three extinct volcanoes, the highest of these points, Kibo, stands at 5,895m (19,341ft) above sea level. Located in northern Tanzania, near the Kenyan border, Kilimanjaro is the one of the world’s most popular and rewarding mountains to climb. Although it is challenging, and demands considerable preparation and effort, Kilimanjaro does not require specialist mountaineering skills and is, strictly speaking, is walked rather climbed!
You’ll begin your ascent through rainforest, The rainforest itself is a beautiful sight, with its rich, lush tapestry providing a contrast to the severe landscapes further up. Towards the highest reaches of Kilimanjaro, you can take in the unique and breathtaking views over the surrounding African plains. The triumphant lookout from the summit affords the unique perspective of gazing from an extraordinary height out to the horizon and down to the clouds well below!

Our sincere apologies that we have not quoted the price in Pound Sterling. As you can imagine with the current uncertainty around Brexit and how this will effect the Euro/Sterling exchange rate over the coming year, it is impossible for us to fix a Sterling rate at this time. All the costs of the trip are priced in Euro, (Flights from Dublin & Trekking Expenses) this cost will not change. We have decided therefore to price the trek in Euro to make it fair on all paying participants.
