I rate mount Kilimanjaro best destination because it is one of 7 natural wonders Africa announced on Febr, 2013.
Apart from climbing kilimanjaro, other things to do are wildlife tours, sight seeing tours to See waterfalls and volcanic lakes.
Several local Tour Operators offer kilimanjaro trekking trips and sight seeing, Jungle Adventure Tanzania Safaris Ltd is one of reputable kilimanjaro climbing outfitter which offer enjoyable kilimanjaro climb and success kilimanjaro summits

climbed mt kilimanjaro via the rongai route (one of the easier, less crowded routes) with a REALLY good guide (http://tanzaniaserengetiadventure.com/). not many people can say they've climbed the highest mountain in africa. it's not too strenuous, though that last midnight climb is killer. if you're thinking about it, definitely do it!

This was one tiring hike, it brought out the unfitness in me. It was a seven day hike that took us through Mandara Hut, Horombo Hut and Kibo hut. The climate, different fauna and flora was absolutely amazing, although I got mountain sickness when we got to high altitude area, reaching Uhuru peak is totally unfogettable.

Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and fourth highest of the seven summits, is considered the tallest freestanding mountain the world, rising 15,100 feet (4,600 meters) from base to summit. Climbing Kilimanjaro is easy and requires no technical climbing or mountaineering experience. The biggest challenge and danger is the high altitude.

An unforgetable adventure that took seven days to ascend and two to descend. During the journey there was rain, hail, wind, dust, fog, and mist. We have endured cold and heat, wet and sun. Everything was worth it to experience the different landscape and flora. In the nine days of climb, we went through rainforest to Mars like terrain to glacier blue and back to lush greenery.
When we finally summit the highest point in the continental Africa, the kind of elation in everyone's eyes, that was truely unforgetable. It wasnt just about completing a feat any more, it was overcoming challenges and celebrating team camamaderie.

Breathtaking... Majestic... Stunning... These words don't do justice to the feeling you get the first time you have a clear view of the mountain. I went to hike Kilimanjaro after graduating form college, and it was amazing. A friend and I booked the Machame Route through Shah Tours, a local company, and was largely surprised by how smooth it went. From the glacier on top, to the rainforest at the base, the climb takes you through such different regions of climate in such a short time.
My advice for anyone about to make this trek is to spend extra on a nice set of hiking boots if you don't have them. Get a headlamp and make sure you have a deck of cards or a book, as even though most of the time you are exhausted by the time you arrive to your campsite, there is a short day or two to allow for a little relaxing.. especially on the way down.

At nearly 20,000 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is by far the highest soaring peak in Africa. On the border between Kenya and Tanzania, this picturesque volcano has gradually sloping sides that make it a popular destination for budding mountain climbers. Tour providers/guides are easy to find, but not all reputable, so stick with well known companies. Despite it's great height, the snow covered peeks of Kilimanjaro are slowly loosing their whiteness thanks to the warming of this already warm climate zone. Though this might make for better climbing conditions, it doesn't bode well for the local ecosystem. Visit, and possibly summit, this enormous geological formation before time changes her longstanding natural beauty.
