Mt. Kilimanjaro
Hike 6 days : 45 km : 5,000 m ascent    /    Cycle 6 days : 480 km : 10,400 m descent

At the heart of this trip is Africa’s highest mountain, at 5,895 m above sea level Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain on earth. After 6 days of trekking, the adventure continues with 5 days of pure mountain bike adventure, from the Summit Africa to a paradise island off Kenya’s south coast.

This is not just another mountain; this is Kilimanjaro, the iconic volcano that rises from the plains of Africa to stake claim as one of the Seven Summits. It is a unique ascent through virtually all of the earth’s bio zones: from tropical jungle, to afro-alpine, to alpine desert, and finally to polar ice cap. The descent reverses the same bio-zones then crosses vast Tsavo wilderness to coastal rain forest then finally to a tropical paradise island. Twelve days of extreme bio diversity!
