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
