About the Destination
There is plenty to see and do while you are in Tanzania, starting with Mount Kilimanjaro. Situated south of the equator in Tanzania at 5,895 metres, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest free standing mountain in the world. For those that are keen, arrangements can be made to climb this icon of Africa. From there, it’s easy to reach the Serengeti Plain or Ngongoro Crater for some sightseeing before or after the marathon.
