African Africa offers endless opportunities for highland trekking and mountain climbing
Step On The Roof Of Africa
Africa offers endless opportunities for highland trekking and mountain climbing, from gentle hill walks in the Drakensburg heights of South Africa to trekking on the slopes of Mount Kenya, or total endurance trials, climbing the world-famous grandfather of them all, Mount Kilimanjaro, the glacier-capped "Shining Mountain" which rises from the clouds, 5895 meters above the rolling plains of northern Tanzania. It is the highest stand-alone mountain in the world and must not be underestimated. Although there are a number of trails up the mountain, representing different levels of ability and endurance, it is a grueling undertaking and can pose a very real risk to life.
