About Mount Kilimanjaro

Also called the Roof of Africa or the Crown of Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is both Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s tallest free standing peak. Standing at 5,875 metres above sea level, Kilimanjaro is also unique as it is located just 330km from the equator.

Mount Kilimanjaro consists of three volcanic summits. Shira (3,962 m) the oldest of the three summits is already extinct. Mawenzi (5,149 m) and the youngest Kibo (5,895 m) are dormant and could erupt again.

When to climb Kilimanjaro

The best month for climbing are January, February, and September – when the weather is warmer, the skies clearer, and the threat of rain less. June, July, and August are also fine weather-wise, although they tend to be colder as this is ‘winter’ in Tanzania.

The rainy seasons (March through early June and November/December) are tougher times to attempt the climb, although it is still possible with appropriate preparation.

Timing the hike to summit during the full moon is a popular choice, as the brighter nights improve visibility and the moon hanging overhead makes for a beautiful moment when you’re standing atop The Roof of Africa.
