Kilimanjaro Marathon 2022
Kilimanjaro Marathon 2022

This years’ Kilimanjaro marathon 22 event in Moshi is nothing short of fanfare. It has been a tough period since the pandemic, even tougher for tour operators and the world at large. Like light at the end of the tunnel, we will be celebrating once again, life coming back to normality with the 2022 Kilimanjaro marathon event that will take place in the Kilimanjaro region.

The Kilimanjaro Region

At 5 895 meters, this is Africa’s tallest peak and the world’s highest free-standing mountain, located south of the equator in Tanzania (as it is not part of a mountain range). Huge permanent glaciers run down from the peak, and the mountain’s sheer size dominates the surrounding landscape. Kili, as she is lovingly known in Africa, is one of the spectacles that everyone should see at least once in their lives.
