The extinct volcano of Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s most recognisable peaks. It rises dramatically above the dusty East African plains with the impressive snow-capped summit awarding awe-inspiring views of this magnificent landscape.

“Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain-tops are within reach.” John Muir

It is the highest top to bottom flight out of all the summits, where you land at the town of Moshi.
