The highest freestanding mountain in the world at 19,340 feet, Kilimanjaro is Africa's peerless treasure a symbol of the continent's diverse natural splendors. The quest to explore the essence of Africa begins here, on this mountain of many faces.
Kilimanjaro soars above the sun-baked East African Savannah, its unforgettable shimmering snowcapped peak veiled in clouds. A dormant volcanic massif located only 200 miles south of the equator, its vast slopes host five distinct climate zones and ecosystems, ranging from equatorial to arctic.
Rainforests give way to moorlands and alpine meadows, while the summit slopes host glaciers precipitously clinging to volcanic rock. Only the giant-screen format can convey the awesome grandeur of Kilimanjaro and its stunning contradictions.
