The famous Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa has attracted many climbers from around the globe.
It is advisable, especially when climbing at higher altitudes, to take things slowly and allow your body to acclimatize.
Every mountain is unique from each other, and this makes it important to be well informed before deciding which one to climb. In Tanzania, most climbers opt for Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru.
Ol Donyo Lengai (active volcano) is also popular. Other mountains in Tanzania are Mt. Hanang (3417m.), Longido (2629m.), Usambara Mountains, Mt. Lemagrut, Mt. Lolmalasin, Mt Oldean, Uluguru Mountains, etc.
Climbing to 5,199 meters, Mount Kenya is the highest in Kenya and second tallest mountain in Africa.
The scenery surrounding this designated World Heritage Site is breath-taking. It is pristine wilderness with lakes, tarns, glaciers, dense forest, mineral springs and a selection of rare and endangered species of animals, high altitude adapted plains game and unique montane and alpine vegetation.
Visitors can enjoy mountain climbing, camping and caving with the mountain’s rugged glacier-clad peaks providing the perfect backdrop.

The High Atlas is an impressive mountainous range in central Morocco that hosts North Africa’s highest peak, Mount Toubkal, at 4,165 meters.
There’s a variety of routes to follow during your ascent but inexperienced climbers should note that the trek through the mountain’s challenging terrains is quite demanding.
