Africa’s mountains and hills make for superb climbing and trekking either in conjunction with a safari or as a stand alone vacation. Remote and stunningly beautiful, the continent offers middle and high altitude challenges for the weekend hiker to the experienced climber. With the potential hazards of reaching high altitudes, it is essential that you work with experts who have unparalleled knowledge and gear, ensuring not only your enjoyment but also your safety.
At Aardvark Safaris, we have spent years finding the most experienced and trustworthy outfitters and guides so that we can offer you the best service, top notch equipment and security on your adventure. In addition to sterling safety records and the highest quality training, our partners in Africa meet and exceed local and international standards for ethical treatment of their staff and environmental sensitivity, and neither we nor they will compromise on those standards.
It's that level of assurance that makes us confident that whether you're trekking in the Rwenzori Mountains or climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, you will be in the company of an expert team, cared for, safe, well fed and offered the best chance of success on your climb or trek.
Countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi and South Africa offer opportunities to climb some of the world's most fabled peaks as well as long distance hikes and treks through epic mountain ranges and massifs. In addition to the outstanding scenery along the way, diverse ecosystems throughout different altitude zones make for good wildlife and birding as you ascend.
