Peak performance

If you are looking for something more challenging, why not push yourself to tackle one of Africa’s top peaks? Treks are possible on all of them, with only a couple needing technical climbing experience to reach the summit. Travelling with a specialist operator will ensure you’ll go slow and steady, enabling you to properly take in the dramatic scenery and montane wildlife that you’ve come to enjoy. By Eleanor Bonsor


If you make it to Kibo, the summit of the 5895m Kilimanjaro, you’ll be standing at Africa’s highest point. The massif consists of three principle extinct volcanoes: Kibo (centre), Mawensi (east) and Shira (west). Although a popular trek, Kilimanjaro is not to be underestimated: statistics show that less than half of climbers reach the summit. Take your time.
