Africa’s rich natural diversity, is rarely more evident that along the equator. The Great rift Valley with it’s giant lakes, game filled savannah stretching to the horizon, lush equatorial rain forest and towering above it all the ice caps and snowy reaches of Africa’s highest summits. Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya  are the result of ancient volcanic turmoil and although similar in composition, these two 5000m+ mountains hold exciting and varied challenges.
