Experience the changing Ecosystems

Lowlands: Between 790 - 1,800 meters, this is the subtropical area located just above the Serengeti plains. An area with heavier rainfall, its vegetation is dominated by banana, coffee, and other plants grown as crops.

Rainforest: Between 1,800 - 2,800 meters, this is a subtropical rainforest rich with plant and animal life. The widest variety of flowering plants grow in this zone.

Moorland and Heath: Between 2,800 - 4,000 meters, this area has less vegetation and is dominated by a few plant and animal species, including groundsels, lobelias, heather, and tree moss. Trees disappear above 4,000 meters.

High Alpine Desert: Between 4,000 - 5,000 meters, this arid, semi-desert zone has no trees and few plants. Sage grass, hearty helichrysum flowers, moss, and thistles are common there.

Arctic Summit: Above 5,000 meters, this is an arid zone with intense sunlight, thin air, and heavy snow and ice at times. Few to no plants grow there.

Summiting is a special experience. 

Once you’ve taken your summit photo, it’s time to start the descent.

Oxygen levels at the top are approx. 40% so we can’t stay too long!
