CLIMB this magical mountain, captivated by its unmistakable snow-capped peak that has been the dream of keen trekkers as well as seasoned mountaineers for decades.

REST in secluded camps, sharing stories with local guides and falling asleep to the nocturnal sounds of Africa.

VIEW from the peak is a vista that will stay with you forever.

YOUR EXPEDITION to the roof of Africa is the equivalent of travelling on a trip from the Equator to the Arctic. It is a true experience of this wonderful Earth, from bushland to tropical forest, the moorland to heath and alpine desert.
