The highest free-standing dormant volcano in Africa is home to some of the spectacular landscape and diverse landforms. From snow capped mountaintop to grassland plains to rocky hills, Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing has got just so much under its topography belt. It is located right next to some of the top safari parks in Tanzania like Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Conservation Area from where the snow capped top is clearly visible and serves as a mountainous backdrop. The Mount Kilimanjaro is considered one of the greatest experiences of African Travel.
But as exciting and rosy it may sound or seems, nevertheless it is a test of one's endurance. The high altitude along with steep slopes makes it increasingly difficult for even the most experienced trekkers. Even choosing the right Kilimanjaro Route can become a headache if you're not in right hands, i.e. experienced tour guides and mountaineers.

** The best months for climbing are January, February, March and September as they are the warmest months and almost clear of clouds, though one could easily succeed throughout the year. April and beginning of May could get heavy rain or snow. The temperatures will still be up, but massive clouds will block visibility, on top it might snow and heavy rains occur on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro.
June to August (though colder), and November/December (could be wetter); through September and October it gets steadily warmer. October is particularly good if you want little or no rain, mild weather and few people on the mountain.January to March is the warmest months, almost clear of clouds except of occasional brief rain showers, followed by the main rainy season during April & May.
However, we always stress that the main reason to climb Kilimanjaro is to have a safe and enjoyable time. Reaching the summit is a bonus, but should never be seen as the aim of the climb.
