Mountain Climbing in Africa

Among the top holiday attraction in the world, are the African mountains, which are not only magnificent but also ideal venues for adventure safari holiday activities which includes; mountain climbing, hiking, camping, bird-watching and wildlife watching as well as providing incredible backdrops for photos etc. Africa is fantastic mountain climbing holiday destination; her lofty mountain peaks like Mount Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya are the world’s most accessible high summits. Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest walkable mountain in the world. At Travel Buddy Africa we set you off on expedition to hike Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest point on the continent at 5896 metres - a captivating adventure of a lifetime, especially because, everyone from seasoned trekkers to first-time enthusiasts can scale the height of Mt Kilimanjaro.

Take your outdoor adventures to the next level by scaling the height of Africa’s second highest mountain – Mt Kenya at 5199m.  Unlike climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Kenya offers many exciting options and wildlife variety. The two highest points (point Batian at 5199m, and point Nelion at 5188m), are very technical climbs tackled by expert climbers and trekkers. Point Lenana at 4985m is the third highest point of Mt Kenya and popular with all non-technical mountain climbers since it’s easily accessible by any fit mountain trekker. Mt Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania and 5th highest mountain in Africa standing at 4,566m above sea level, Trekking Mt Meru rewards mountain climbers with excellent views and opportunities to see great variety of plants and wildlife. Mt Meru is a fantastic hiking destination which instead of being overlooked should be used to get acclimatised for Mt Kilimanjaro climbing.

Trek the awe-inspiring summits of the Simien Mountains Ethiopia home of the Ethiopian Wolf, the gelada monkeys and the Walia Ibex. Trekking Simien Mountains is immensely rewarding. The magnificent Mount Elgon with its highest point at 4.321m lies on the Kenya Uganda border and is also a venue of adventurous mountain trekking safaris in Africa. While hiking Mt Elgon you will encounter many species of plants and wildlife. Descending into the mountains caldera is unforgettable experience. The Drakensberg in South Africa is a venue of stunning scenery and very popular trekking and hiking destination in South Africa. The Rwenzori Mountains locally known as the “mountains of the moon” are the highest mountain ranges in Africa and are the source of the Nile River. Climbing Rwenzoris is not a walk in the park, it is much more demanding than climbing Mt Kilimanjaro or Mt Kenya with many of the trails being wet, muddy, and slippery.
