Around 30,000 people a year climb the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's tallest free-standing mountain at 19,341 feet and Uhuru Peak is the highest summit on the Kibo's crater rim.
Kilimanjaro is a relatively safe climb and can be done any time of the year, however, the drier season is a more popular time to climb.

Marangu Route - 5 days: From USD 467* per climber
