Affectionately known as ‘Kili’, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa, an iconic landmark of the continent. Located 225km from Nairobi, it is an attraction for climbers. Planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro is essential – choosing the correct route and guide, with physical training required beforehand. The best view of Mount Kilimanjaro is actually from Amboseli National Park in Kenya, however, in order to access the mountain and the surrounding activities, one needs to be in Tanzania, the gateway to Kili
Those who do not wish to summit the mountain, you can partake in shorter hikes, for example to the Materuni Waterfall at 90m of altitude and swim in its pools. This experience is often combined with a tour to the coffee plantations. The country is famous for its 100% arabica coffee. A tour through the farm ends with the roasting and grinding process with the possibility of ending with a taste of your own freshly brewed coffee! To fulfil cultural curiosity, visit the Olpopongi Maasai Cultural Village and Museum. The village residents welcome visitors for a full day or overnight tour, proudly showcasing traditional and authentic Masaai culture.
