Kilimanjaro

kili Mount Kilimanjaro is situated just three degrees below the equator and is the highest mountain in Africa. It is also the highest free-standing mountain n the world and the highest walkable tt summit in the world, known as the roof of Africa. Kilimanjaro is a dormant, but not extinct volcano. Warning rumbles can sometimes be heard - and gases emerge from the fume holes in the crater. Johannes Rebmann, German missionary and explorer, credited with being the first European to find Kilimanjaro in 1848 recorded in his log. tt summit in the world, known as the roof of Africa.

This morning we discerned the mountain of Jagga more distinctly than ever, and about ten o'clock I fancied I saw a dazzling white cloud. My guide called the white which I saw merely 'baridi', cold; it was perfectly clear to me, however, that it could be nothing else but snow. When Rebmann reported this to the Royal Geographic Society in London there was disbelief. No one could believe that snow could be found on the Equator!

kilimanjaro routes Mount Kilimanjaro features two peaks, Kibo (5,893m) and Mawenzi (5,149m). Its breathtaking beauty has to be seen and experienced by one personally to really appreciate the amazing environment and surrounding landscape. Ascending up the mountain and descending takes about 5 days and can be climbed by any normal fit person with the assistance of experienced mountain guides and porters.

Mount Kilimanjaro can be climbed at any time of the year but the best time is considered to be from August to October and January to March. It is wet in the rainforest during the rains in April, May, June and November. December through to February are the warmest months but then weather is very unpredictable in this area and therefore you should check with us nearer your adventure trekking departure.

With the help of our experienced mountain guides and porters, it is possible to walk all the way to the summit without specialized mountaineering experience. The climb normally takes five to six days and involves four or five overnight stays in comfortable mountain huts when using Marangu Route. Machame Route, Lemosho, Umbwe and Rongai do not have huts and therefore tents are used. Thousands of trekkers reach Gillman's Point or Uhuru Peak successfully each year without any difficulties. To avoid altitude sickness and failure, it is recommended to acclimatize by ascending slowly and steadily instead of rushing to the next stop.

The various trails first pass through lush rainforests before reaching heather and open moorland where giant lobelia and huge, cactus-like, groundsel grow. Above this moorland is the almost lunar landscape of an alpine desert which stretches between the two peaks of Kibo, the flat-topped dome at the centre, and Mawenzi, a group of jagged points and pinnacles on the eastern side.

 

Mt. Meru

meru The dramatic crater of Mt. Meru is often neglected in favour of nearby to the east, but a visit to this spectacular mountain, located within Arusha National Park , is an unforgettable experience. It's lower slopes are covered in dense highland forest, where colobus monkeys play and buffalo graze concealed beneath the thick foliage. The extinct volcano's extensive base gives way to a perfectly formed crater, and another internal crater whose walls are sharp, sheer cliffs. An ash cone forms a subsidiary peak, and the Momela Lakes and Ngurdoto Crater are visible from Meru's slopes.

Please view our package(s) to climb Mt. Meru , they are carefully prepared for your best climbing experience.

Mount Oldoinyo Lengai (Oldonyo Lengai)

oldoinyo_lengai Mount Oldoinyo Lengai (Mount Oldonyo Lengai) is a volcano in the Eastern Rift Valley, North Tanzania. Its name means 'Mountain of God' in the language of the Maasai people who inhabit this area. Mount Oldoinyo Lengai (Mount Oldonyo Lengai) is of particular interest to geologists because it is the world's only active volcano that erupts natrocarbonatite lava. It is also the only active volcano in this part of the East African Rift Valley, though there are many older extinct volcanoes in this region. Mount Oldoinyo Lengai (Mount Oldonyo Lengai) rises about 2000 metres above the Rift Valley floor to a height of approximately 2886 metres.

Ol Doinyo Lengai (Oldonyo Lengai) is a volcano located in the north of Tanzania and is part of the volcanic system of the Great Rift Valley in Eastern Africa. It is located in the eastern Rift Valley, south of both Lake Natron and Kenya. It is unique among active volcanoes in that it produces natrocarbonatite lava, a unique occurrence of volcanic carbonatite. Further, the temperature of its lava as it emerges is only around 510 °C (950 °F). A few older extinct carbonatite volcanoes are located nearby, including Homa Mountain.

 

Usambara

usambara Situated in the north-east of Tanzania. With their wide vistas, cool climate, winding paths and picturesque villages, the Usambara's are one of Tanzanian's highlights.

The Usambara's are a part of the ancient Eastern Arc chain which mountains stretch in a broken crescent from the Taita hills in southern Kenya down to Morogoro and the southern highlands. They are estimated to be at least 100 million years old and the rocks forming them may be as much as 600 million years old. The mountains are home to an exceptional assortment of plants and animals and represent one of the highest degrees of biodiversity on the continent.
