Africa’s highest peak and (currently) dormant volcano Kilimanjaro has to be one of the most iconic landmarks of this remarkable continent. Towering above the Zimbabwean plains, it is a challenging climb, but well worth the effort if you’re able to reach the summit.
Book a flight to Kilimanjaro with Qatar Airways and you can start your African adventure in real style. Beyond the mountain there is a world of fabulous wildlife to discover, including the ‘Big Five’ – the African lion, elephant, Cape
buffalo, African leopard, and White/Black rhinoceros.
A trip of a lifetime, visiting Kilimanjaro gives you the chance to see these magnificent creatures in their native habitat.
The most obvious attraction has to be the mountain itself. It stands 5,895 metres (19,340 feet) above sea level, and is Africa's highest peak and the world's highest free-standing mountain. However, thanks to its relatively gentle incline compared to other mountains, reaching the summit can be achieved by visitors with a reasonable level of fitness.
Guides take adventurous travellers to the top of this ancient volcano, where the view of the African plains below is truly breathtaking.
Kilimanjaro has a number of natural waterfalls to see such as Materuni waterfalls and Kinukamori waterfalls. These are rich habitats for wildlife too, making them popular with visitors.
At the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro there are volcanic lakes including Lake Chala, a tranquil location that has its own unique eco-system. Tours to discover the culture of the local Chagga tribe give visitors a chance to meet a tribe that has made Mount Kilimanjaro their home for thousands of years. Safari trips out to the plains give travellers the chance to see larger wildlife in the protected habitat of Kilimanjaro National Park.
