Soaring 5,895 metres above the surrounding farmland and forest, Kilimanjaro is both Africa’s highest peak and the world’s highest freestanding mountain. Boasting everything from an active volcano to lush rainforest, vast glaciers to meandering alpine moors, it’s not surprising that the mountain’s snowy peak attracts so many visitors.

What makes a Kilimanjaro trek appealing to so many travellers is that the summit can be reached by trekkers with minimal technical climbing experience; there are no ropes, belays or chimneying. That said, the trek is not for the faint-hearted – a good level of fitness is required and altitude sickness is a very real danger. It’s important to prepare in advance and allow time to acclimatise to the reduced oxygen levels.

Climbing to the top of Africa on a Peregrine Kilimanjaro tour is a major achievement for the bold adventurer – will you rise to the challenge?
