About African Mountain Trekking
Africa's most popular trekking destination is Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain on the continent.
Lesser known ranges like Uganda's Rwenzori Mountains offer an incredible array of snow-capped peaks right next to the equator. It’s all too easy to think of Africa as defined by one thing – wildlife, safaris or one of its iconic highlights, such as Kilimanjaro or Victoria Falls. In reality of course, it’s a really, really big continent and packed with astounding diversity, from lush and verdant islands to staggering mountain ranges. Any adventurous walker or curious traveller will never be bored by Africa’s many incredible hiking destinations, and if you’re looking for somewhere a little different to the rest of your trekking adventures, it’s the place to be. Here’s our guide to where you should go, country by country, to experience some of the best hiking it has to offer.
It is the highest stand-alone mountain in the world and must not be underestimated. Although there are a number of trails up the mountain, representing different levels of ability and endurance, it is a grueling undertaking, and can pose a very real risk to life. You do not need specialized mountain climbing skills nor mountaineering equipment on this challenging vacation on Africa's highest peak, but you will need the skills of an experienced support team, provided by Uhuru Trails, a team partnership between African Outback Safaris and a well-respected family company with over thirty years acquaintance with this mountain, which is the ultimate pinnacle of many dreams of hazardous adventure on the beautiful continent.
