Where is Kilimanjaro?

One of the questions we are asked most often is:

WHERE IS KILIMANJARO?

Americans aren't generally known for their knowledge of world geography, and to be honest, when we first decided to go, I had no idea where Kilimanjaro was either...so here you go.

Kilimanjaro is in Tanzania, Africa, which sits on the East side of Central Africa.

See, here's Tanzania.

When you zoom in on Tanzania, you can see that Kilimanjaro is in the upper North East corner of Tanzania, on the border with Kenya.

Here's a little closer view of Kilimanjaro and the area we'll be flying into. Our 2nd/3rd day of our time in Africa will be spent in Arusha, which can be seen on the map here.

And then we begin our climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. We will be taking the Machame route, which is known as the intermediate and most scenic route up the mountain.

The Western Breach is currently closed, because of a rockslide there that injured and killed some people in January 2006 (one person killed was actually from Colorado).

Are we scared to climb Mount Kilimanjaro? No. Not really. Mostly just really darn excited! We know it will be a challenge, and we're prepared for that, but mostly we're just excited!

See! Here we are, in preparation with our official "Team Kilimanjaro2006.com" jerseys!
