Hike 5 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, and at 5,895 m above sea level, 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 Roof of Africa in Tanzania to a paradise island off Kenya’s south coast.
This is not just another mountain; this is Kilimanjaro. The iconic volcano 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 and finally to tropical beaches. Twelve days of extreme bio diversity!
The Kilimanjaro Summit to Sea is a collaboration between Rift Valley Odyssey—Kenya’s most unique MTB adventure—and Xplore this World, South Africa’s premier outdoor experience company. In crafting this unique tour, Eric and Alex have brought to bear their copious experience and love of adventure.
