Where: Kilimanjaro Region, Tanzania
Standing at 5,895m, Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa. This vast, snow-capped and fortunately dormant/extinct volcano is found in the southern hemisphere in northwest Tanzania, close to the Kenyan border.
The uppermost point of the world’s highest free-standing mountain is Uhuru peak. This is a 10 day round trip from the UK, and an attempt to climb this high peak via the Rongai Route.
