Did you know?

Located in North Eastern Tanzania near the Kenyan boarder, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is the highest walkable mountain in the world. It is also an extinct Volcano.

The exact meaning of the name Kilimanjaro is unknown although it is thought to be a combination of the Swahili word "Kilima" meaning Mountain and the Kichagga word "Njaro" meaning Whiteness ~ White Mountain.

Currently there are 6 routes/treks open for walking covering a variety of fitness levels.
