Climbing & Trekking


Mount Kilimanjaro

At an almighty 5895 mt, it is the tallest mountain in Africa (not surprisingly nicknamed the “Roof of Africa ”) and is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world that can be ascended spontaneously without the need for technical gear. Ice-capped all year round it is, in fact, a dormant (but not extinct!) volcano. Kilimanjaro is one of the most spectacular sights to see not just in Tanzania but quite possibly in the whole of Africa.


Mount Meru

Mt. Meru is located in the heart of Arusha National Park and it is 50 miles west of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Mt. Meru is a massive volcano reaching 14,980 feet (4,565 meters). This trek serves as an ideal warm up for Mt. Kilimanjaro due to its altitude acclimatization and hiking distances. This trek is also geared towards hikers that prefer less crowds and a challenging ascent.


Usambara Mountains

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.


Pare Mountains

lay southeast of Kilimanjaro rise and are green and fertile. There are three cultural tourism programmes that make it easy to visit these beautiful mountains. Two in the north at Usangi and Kisangara, and another at Mbega in the south.


Ngorongoro Highlands

The Highlands redefines the Ngorongoro experience. Set on the edge of the mountain forest hugging the Olmoti volcano to the north of Ngorongoro Crater, The Highlands strikes a perfect balance between a true wilderness experience and a high-style, contemporary escape.
