What vaccinations do I need to climb Kilimanjaro?
and other African mountains...
Did you know?
Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world!
And the highest volcano outside South America! Majestic accolades.
The name may mean 'Mountain of Light', or 'Mountain of Greatness' or 'Mountain of Caravans'. Truth is that no-one can say for certain. What we do know is that the people that live on her flanks, the Wachagga, do not even have a name for the mountain, though Kibo is known locally as 'Kipoo' and features in various local folklore.
