Consider seriously starting 2024 by ascending Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa.

Take on the challenge and climb up 5,895 meters. You’ll go through five different climate zones and celebrate the new year on the Roof of Africa. This once-in-a-lifetime journey will surely make you see yourself and the world in a whole new way.

New Year's Adventure: Summiting Kilimanjaro for a Spectacular Start to 2024


Kilimanjaro, located in Tanzania, is a famous mountain that’s a dormant volcano. Don’t worry, though – the last big eruption happened hundreds of thousands of years ago. Besides being the tallest mountain in Africa, it’s also the highest free-standing mountain globally, meaning it’s not part of a mountain range. Picture yourself welcoming the new year in 2024 at its peak, watching the sunrise over the stunning plains below.

Mount Kilimanjaro is made up of three volcanoes – Shira, Mawnzi, and Kibo. Climbing it feels like stepping into a nature documentary. With five distinct ecosystems, you’ll experience a unique adventure, from hiking through an untouched rainforest to seeing lava towers and exotic animals. You might even meet and chat with indigenous tribes people on the mountain. All this while you’re walking above the clouds, gazing down at the lush savanna below.


Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro usually takes five to 11 days, depending on the route. There are seven established routes, each with varying length, difficulty, and views. If you prefer a somewhat easier route with a good chance of reaching the summit, consider the Lemosho Route. It has a more gradual climb, making it suitable for those who may not be experienced climbers but still dream of welcoming the new year from the top of the world.

Why You Should Climb Kilimanjaro This New Year’s Eve

Embracing the unknown is a chance to start fresh, with new possibilities and a different outlook. The beginning of the year is a great time to challenge yourself to achieve something you’ve never done before. Climbing the highest free-standing mountain on earth for a few days is a significant accomplishment, and that’s what makes it appealing. Finding something new and inspiring for the year ahead—whether it’s trying new food, immersing yourself in a fascinating culture, or marveling at amazing wildlife and landscapes—climbing Kilimanjaro is a chance to shake up your New Year and kick-start an exciting year from the summit. After all, isn’t that what New Year’s resolutions are really about?
Consider trying something different for a change—New Year celebrations often include fireworks, music, and feasting with loved ones. While there’s nothing wrong with starting your year this way, it might be refreshing to break from the usual routine just this once. Who knows, you might enjoy the experience so much that you decide to make it a tradition for the next New Year’s Eve.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a meaningful way to begin the new year. During your trek, you’ll be joined by guides and porters. For these individuals, mountain climbs are a way to make a living, and taking part in this trek is a great way to help support them and their families. By doing this, you start the new year by bringing smiles to people’s faces. The sense of fulfillment that usually comes afterward makes the experience truly worthwhile.
Reward yourself—you’ve accomplished something incredible by conquering Africa’s highest peak, so why not indulge your tired body with a relaxing beach weekend in Zanzibar?
