Join a small group of NOLS grads, friends and family on an attempt to climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340'— the top of Africa!) in northeastern Tanzania.
This 9-day expedition allows time to climb the tallest peak in Africa, while seeing the surrounding countryside and experiencing the culture of Tanzania. You and your group will learn to live in this unique equatorial alpine environment. You will also have a chance to learn about the geology, glaciology and unusual flora and fauna found on Mt. Kilimanjaro. While in the forests, you will have the opportunity to see Cape buffalo, elephant, bushbuck, or even a Colobus monkey.
Porters will accompany us to lighten our loads. Hauling camp, food and equipment on Kilimanjaro is a hard job, but the porters will do it with a smile.
*Porters carry the heavy stuff, but it’s a long hike at high elevation.
