Travel Africa 104

Here’s one to fuel your spirit of adventure. There’s plenty here to get you out into the great African outdoors, venturing into new territory or challenging yourself to push out of your comfort zone. Yes, reaching the peak of Kilimanjaro is on many people’s bucket lists — and we’ll help you figure out how to achieve it — but a week on the mountain should be savoured by anyone with a pair of hiking boots. Or what about exploring a roadtrip? We’ll explain what its like and offer great advice should you want to get behind the wheel. Even our ‘normal’ safari stories take you to less-visited areas that may just become favourites: Madikwe, Ethiopia and the magical Dzanga-Sangha.

Tanzania: the complete guide to Kilimanjaro
We pull together the collective insight of writers, tour operators and readers who have climbed and explored Kili, to produce the complete guide to the mountain: whether you want to summit ‘the roof of Africa’ or enjoy time exploring its various habitats. Includes detail on the experience itself, practical information on the routes, best practice, choosing an operator, caring for the mountain, taking time and looking after porters — everything readers will need to plan and prepare. There’s so much to take out of a week on the mountain, and plenty to enjoy even if you don’t want to go all the way.
