Your highest aspirations are fulfilled onMt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

Not only is Kilimanjaro the highest mountain in Tanzania and Africa, it’s the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Rising 19,341 feet (5,895 m) above sea level, it has three distinct volcanic cones, two of which are extinct and one that could erupt again. It lies within the 756-square-kilometer Kilimanjaro National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the few places on earth that encompasses every ecological life zone—tropical jungle, savannah, desert, montane forests, and alpine zone.

On this K2 Adventure Travel journey, you can experience a spine-tingling (and strenuous) hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro or Mt. Meru as well as less demanding options that include community service and safari opportunities.
