From the Author:

For more than 12 years our guide has been considered the Bible for climbing Kilimanjaro, used by rangers, guides and agencies as well as tens of thousands of regular trekkers.

It's not difficult to see why, for our guidebook is the ONLY ONE with:

  • full descriptions and detailed maps of each of the trekking routes - including altitudes and GPS waypoint readings - by somebody who has climbed them all!

  • Is the only book with an extensive and unbiased review of the trekking agencies, both in Tanzania (Arusha, Moshi and Marangu) and those tour operators in the UK/US/Europe/Australia/ New Zealand/South Africa.

  • Is the only book with town and city guides to Arusha, Moshi and Marangu, the three towns and villages that will be your base before and after your climb

  • Has the most comprehensive guide to preparing for your trek, from what to take, what to wear, how to book your trek and flights, and how much it's all going to cost; everything, in fact, to help you get ready for the biggest adventure of your life!

  • Provides the most detailed background information on the mountain, including the history, geography, geology and topography of Kilimanjaro, as well as a study of the Chagga tribe that live at the foot of the mountain.

  • Full run-down of Kilimanjaro's nature including a full-colour flora guide.

  • A full description with maps of the Mount Meru trek.

We also provide:

  • A thorough health and fitness section to help you stay healthy in East Africa, increase your chances of making it to the top and ensure you make it back down again.

  • In-depth study of altitude sickness, or AMS - the number one reason why people fail to make it to the summit - including causes and prevention;

  • City guides to Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, the two cities that you are most likely to fly into, as well as an introduction to Kilimanjaro International Airport;
  • A thorough practical information guide to travelling around Tanzania, including a look at visa requirements, currency, budgeting, transport, food etc);
  • Advice on how to look after your porters and crew on the trek;
  • A look at the culture of the local Chagga people who inhabit Kilimanjaro's lower slopes;

  • Plenty of photos and illustrations from both contemporary and historical sources, including some wonderful pen-and-ink sketches by the first Europeans to see the mountain, way back in the nineteenth century.

  • Over thirty maps covering every stage of climbing and descending from the mountain. 

    Indeed, you'll find everything you need to help you get from the safety of your favourite armchair to the very summit of Africa's highest mountain. And no other guidebook can provide anything like that kind of comprehensive coverage.

    But don't take our word for it - check out our reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk (all of which, we can promise you, are genuine!)
