Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

Take an adventure holiday in KENYA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

Kenya located in Eastern Africa is bordered to the north by Ethiopia, in the northeast by Somalia, in the south by Tanzania, to the west by Uganda and Sudan to the northwest. Along the southeast border of Kenya is the Indian Ocean. Although lying on the Equator, Kenya is blessed with a varied landscape. The landscapes, range from vast desert land in the north, through the forest and snow-capped central regions of Mount Kenya (5199m or 17,057 ft), to the grassy plains and savanna in the south to the humid coastline. The Great Rift Valley runs the length of the country and is home to an amazing selection of animals.

Kenya’s varied landscape is home to much wildlife including the ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros and elephant. A significant population of other wild animals, reptiles and birds can be found in the national parks and game reserves in the country. Most notably is the Masai Mara, which is a large reserve in south western Kenya which is famous for its exceptional population of game as well as the annual migration of wildebeest every July and August.

Just as the landscapes of Kenya are varied, so is World Expeditions style of adventures in Kenya. Choose from a challenging trek to the summit of Africa’s second highest peak, Mount Kenya, or walk alongside the Masai tribes people in the Masai Mara viewing the plethora of wildlife, take a game drive in a national park or walk with the Samburu visiting their villages and experiencing traditional African way of life first hand.
