Mount Kilimanjaro is famous in the world because it is one of the world’s Seven Summits, the highest free standing mountain in the world and the highest mountain in Africa.
The name “Kilimanjaro”: The name Kilimanjaro itself is a mystery wreathed in cloud which has multiple meanings like “Mountain of Light”, “Mountain of Greatness”, or “Mountain of Caravans.” Or it might not. The Wachagga, who are the local tribal people, don’t even have a name for the entire massif except for Kipoo (now known as Kibo). This is a familiar snowy peak which oversees the territory and is the summit of Africa, and the summit of Africa.
The peaks: There are three main peaks that make up Mount Kilimanjaro, Shira, Kibo and Mawenzi. Both Shira and Mawenzi have suffered considerable erosion and only the jagged peaks remain. But Kibo, on the other hand, which is the central and highest peak, has survived and remains in a perfect conical shape.

There are not enough words in any language to describe our experience with Simba Safaris, specifically with our safari driver/guide, Geoffroy Bosco!.
We had the most amazing experience … our driver Urassa was outstanding he was so attentive and his love of the animals was so evident … the lodges along our route were exceptional.
We spent 4 days with our guide Estommy on safari. He made these 4 days unforgettable for us. With his knowledge he could answer us every question on the animals and gave us a very good insight in african culture, as we could ask him everything.
