Climbing Kilimanjaro is the ultimate goal for many trekkers. It's a challenging week-long hike from the savannah of West Kilimanjaro up to frozen glaciers at the peak.
Reaching the top isn't easy, but it's an achievable goal if you have a reasonable level of fitness and a steady pace.
Each day brings a new landscape, as you move through rainforest and alpine desert to ice and snow at the summit.
There are five or six different approaches to the top, but all lead to Uhuru Peak, where the breathtaking views will make you forget the hours of slogging.
Reaching the summit is truly unforgettable, as dawn turns the clouds pink, and the sun rises over Africa.
