Training for Kilimanjaro on Table Mountain

Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa was first climbed in 1883 by a German geology professer called Hans Meyer. Since then the mountain has been summitted by literally thousands of people looking for the adventure and experience of a lifetime. The reason Kilimanjaro fullfills the dream of so many is that no special equipment or skill is required to reach the top. You do of course need to be relatively fit and very determined. But with these resources many people find the summit achievable.

Testing out new equipment on Table Mountain


South Africa is used by many as a base for their adventure. Both in order to enjoy the many game parks and other natural wonders that are found in South Africa. But also to do a training hike on that other famous African mountain. Table Mountain.  Table Mountain towers majestically over the city of Cape Town and although it can offer no altitude training, its steep sides offer a good work out for anyone with Kilimanjaro in their sights.
