Kilimanjaro towers at 5,895 m/19,340 ft above sea level. It is the highest free standing mountain in the world and the “Roof of Africa”.

Mt Kilimanjaro is one of the most popular travel attractions on the continent. Over 40,000 people visit it every year. The reasons for its popularity are simple. It’s an incredibly beautiful trek where a climber doesn’t require technical climbing skills. To reach the summit, one needs only a healthy average fitness level. This is why many people begin their Seven Summits journey with Mount Kilimanjaro.

We wrote this guide to help climbers prepare for their once-in-a-lifetime Kilimanjaro adventure. All the recommendations below are the results of our 10+ years of Kilimanjaro experience. Over this time we at Horizon Seeker Adventure have organized Mount Kilimanjaro hiking trips for over 20,000 people. Our team also outfitted the climbs of Nimsdai, Red Bull athletes, and Fortune 500 companies, among others.
