Hiking In Africa: 6 Recommended Destinations & Tour Packages

Hiking | Walking | Mountain Climbing in Africa

Hiking is basic to many sporting activities and is also a widely recommended and practiced form of physical training. For example, hiking constitutes a large part of mountain climbing; experienced mountaineers know that they must train themselves for long, arduous hikes over the lower trails and across glaciers and snowfields.

Hiking Safaris in Africa, and walking in nature as a recreational activity. Especially among those with sedentary occupations, hiking is a natural exercise that promotes physical fitness, is economical and convenient, and requires no special equipment. Because hikers can walk as far as they want, there is no physical strain unless they walk among hills or mountains.

If there’s one African hike to rule them all, it’s Africa’s highest peak, the mighty Kilimanjaro, standing at an impressive 5,895m tall. This trek is one of your greatest achievements and still one of the favorite travel memories you will ever experience with JimJam Safaris during your hiking experience in Africa.
