Rate this:
At 19,340 ft, Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and the world's tallest freestanding peak. The fact that it's possible to walk to the summit (no mountaineering skills needed) has made this Africa's most popular trek. Kilimanjaro is not difficult to reach and even has its own international airport. It's ideally placed between Tanzania and Kenya and most walkers combine the mountain hike with a visit to a game park.

This new guide is written in the proven Trailblazer style--with detailed walking maps showing hiking times, points of interest, and gradients. Also includes:
*Getting to Kilimanjaro from Europe, North America, and Australasia
*Nairobi--trekking preparations and what to see
*Dar-Es-Salaam--trekking preparations and what to see
*Where to stay and eat--Nairobi, Dar-Es-Salaam, and along the trails
*Employing a guide or porter
*The environment--how to minimize impact on a fragile region
*Health and safety
*40 detailed walking maps
*Post-trek options--excursions and safaris
