At 19,340 ft (5895 m) above sea level, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa. But because it juts more than 16,000 ft (4900 m) above the surroudnign
plains, it offers one of the most breathtaking sights in the entire world. No less spectacular is the view from the top: traversing the mountain during
mid-December through mid-march or form June until October will maximize your chances of an unobscured view of the surrounding plains.
Kilimanjaro offers 7 different ascents that require no mountaineering skills. Each offers varying levels of difficulty, quality of scenery, foot traffic
and amount of time for altitude acclimation. Because a mountain crew takes care of everything, a climber needs to only focus on summiting. This means
you can prioritize acclimating yourself and observing the unique climatic zones and their accompanying flora and fauna.
