Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Kenya and The Rwenzoris. These are the East African giants which provide quality trekking. There are many other interesting areas available for the avid trekker. You simply can go for a short trekking experience and or for a longer adventure trek. Just South of the Equator at a distance of 330km lies the highest free standing volcanic mountain in the world - The Kilimanjaro - The highest point is UHURU PEAK - 5895m. Trekking Mt. Kilimanjaro is like taking a safari from the Equator to the Arctic. In principal there are 5 clearly distinguishable vegetation zones namely; the montane forests, the heather, the moorland, the alpine desert and the summit zone crowned by ancient glaciers. Each zone supports a different kind of flora and fauna. Nyika Treks has been leading treks on this mountain since 1995. Our success climb rate is good. All this is due to good work from our professional guides, proper climb arrangements, motivated support team, good food for the trekkers and quality trekking gears. The trek to the Peak up and down takes from 5 to 6 days on Marangu and Rongai Routes, 6 to 7 days on the other routes. The trek is best attempted during Tanzania's dry seasons - June through September and January through March. You still can climb in November and December during the short rains season with accompanying pleasant weather and good visibility. Anybody who is reasonably fit can do the trek. Nyika will lead you on equally interesting treks on Mt. Meru (the 5th highest in Africa standing at 4566m above sea level); and lead you on a short but strenuous trek of Mt Ol'Doinyo L'Engai - 2878m high (an active volcano). You can't miss the easy but equally interesting trek of the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater Highlands. Across the borders, Nyika will professionally organize your trek and or climb on Mt Kenya (5199m asl) and the Rwenzoris (5109m asl) to the best of your expectations. Our guides are a bright and an enthusiastic team to work with.
