Conservation on Kilimanjaro

Conservation on Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro experienced a difficult birth into the general geographic consciousness of the 19th century. The first missionary travelers to peer up to the snow capped peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi reported back to the various metropolitan geographic societies that snow and glaciers existed in Africa just three hundred miles from the equator. With the characteristic conservatism of the times, and upon a minimum of reflection, these claims were dismissed.

 

Why You Should Add Mount Kilimanjaro to Your Round the World Trip

Planning a long-term trip around the world is no small endeavor. There are so many things a traveler has to prepare for, think about, and plan when it comes to traveling for longer than the typical one or two week vacation. How much money it’s going to cost, how to go about saving all that money, whether to buy a RTW plane ticket or point to point tickets – all are important parts of the planning process. But perhaps the most fun part, and sometimes the most difficult part, is trying to decide where to go on your RTW trip.

One suggestion I make to those planning their first round the world trip is to pick out a handful of must-sees – those places and experiences you’ve always dreamed about. Now is the time to take advantage and make those travel dreams a reality. For the more adventurous traveler, that could include something awesome like climbing a mountain. Adding Mount Kilimanjaro to your round the world itinerary is something that all hiking lovers should consider.

The beauty of hiking Kili is that it’s great for both novice and experienced hikers. That’s not to say it’s easy, but there are no technical aspects of climbing to the summit of Kilimanjaro. It is one of the highest peaks in the world that doesn’t need ropes, harnesses, and climbing equipment. There are trails where you can hike right up to the summit, and there are also more challenging routes for the more hard-core hiker. If you have ever dreamed of hiking to the top of Africa’s highest mountain peak, then consider adding Mount Kilimanjaro to your round the world wish list.

The beginning of the end of Crater Camp

The current buzz in Kilimanjaro is the imminent closure of Crater Camp.
