Overview

Famous for its wildlife safaris and coastal resorts, East Africa is also an extraordinary destination for lovers of mountains, trekking and hiking. The mountains here stand as solitary peaks above surrounding plains; the most attractive is Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, rising to 5895m: it is the highest mountain in Africa, the world's highest free standing mountain and the world's highest volcano! This guide offers routes up to Kilimanjaro as well as Mount Kenya (5199m), the second highest peak in Africa, with supporting advice on how to prepare for such an expedition, how to make the most of your time there and how to ensure your trip has as little impact on the local environment as possible.
