Trekking in Africa?
One does not really associate the African continent with trekking. From the classic Africa movies or documentaries you might remember the endless savannah landscapes of the Serengeti and Masai Mara or the bushy vegetation of the Kruger Park. For spectacular mountain ranges and extraordinary hiking tours Africa is not well known – but what a surprise awaits!
The highest and most famous mountain of Africa is Mount Kilimanjaro with its peak at 5895 m. Largely unknown in East Africa are Mount Meru (an active volcano) in Tanzania, Mount Kenya in Kenya and Ruwenzori in Uganda. The Ruwenzori mountains is a World Heritage Site. For people who do not want to hike too high above sea level, a trekking safari in the wildlife-rich Ngorongoro Highlands might be an alternative.
In Malawi we can arrange trekking tours on Mount Mulanje and in South Africa the breathtaking landscapes of the central Drakensberg or the spectacular coastline of the Wild Coast attract numerous trekking enthusiasts.
