About this book

Nothing in Africa is as majestic or fabled as Mount Kilimanjaro. Though one of the highest volcanoes in the world and the single highest freestanding mountain in the world, it is nonetheless possible to reach the summit without any technical climbing ability. This guide includes detailed information on getting there, local conditions, preparation, acclimatisation and descent routes.

Customer Reviews


Alexander Stewart is the senior buyer for Stanfords, the renowned map and travel specialist bookshop. He has a particular interest in Africa and a passion for mountains. Throughout his adult life he has walked in them, written about them and photographed them. However, he doesn't often find himself on top of them, except at home in the UK. Kilimanjaro made a significant impression on him during his first ascent in 1999, and he has subsequently been drawn back repeatedly to the 'roof of Africa'.

Media reviews

"The Cicerone guide is probably the most comprehensive on the market, featuring detailed historical, geographical and natural history information as well as all of the essential information on each of the ascent routes. Revised and reprinted in 2006 it is also bang-up-to-date"
