    Standing tall at 5895 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa. the majestic peak is also the world free standing mountain. Kilimanjaro has a lot of features and will awe anyone that will try climbing it. climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for me was one of the most challenging things to do but it was also totally worth it. I did the climb with Tanzania Royal Tours Safaris and I must say they are really experts at what they do. the experience was fantastic, it’s probably something you should try doing at least once in your lifetime.

    1. everyone at Tanzania Royal Tours And Safaris went above and beyond to make my trip a remarkable one. the food was superb the chef always prepared meals that were cheerful and delicious. in the morning we had porridge that was made from cooked bananas. i cannot recommend this company enough as they simply assist guests to meet their expectations no matter the cost though they a rational when it comes to making decisions that inspire going to the summit and have influence on the health and safety of their client. the route is nice and consist of an easy climb though it is tough during the summit night.

    I chose this route after a short WhatsApp meeting with Geoffrey. He explained all the routes and mentioned that the Lemosho route was the most appealing route that help travelers to slowly acclimatize due to it gentle slopes. the route is as well popular because it hold the good mountain scenery that is breathe taking.
