Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, rising in breathtaking isolation from the surrounding coastal scrubland rising elevation around 900 metres to an imperious 5,895 metres.
Kilimanjaro. The name itself is a mystery wreathed in clouds. It might mean Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not. The local people, the Wachagga, don't even have a name for the whole massif, only Kipoo (now known as Kibo) for the familiar snowy peak that stands imperious, overseer of the continent, the summit of Africa.
A great authentic experience! So much to do, but at a relaxing pace. Walk through the villages and interact freely with the locals. Visit the Chagga underground tunnels, waterfalls (walk and swim), lunch, coffee farms, de-husk roast and crush your own coffee and drink it, a live museum - which was amazing by the way. Oh, and a stop at a banana beer bar on the way home.
