Tanzania’s famous peaceful nature, political stability and hospitality of its people make tourists flock to Tanzania for leisure and holiday. Tourists need to feel safe and welcomed. And who doesn’t wish to be at the top of Africa?
Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro “the roof of Africa” climbers have a vast choice of which route to take and that means what choice of experience of the mountain they want.
Mount Kilimanjaro
Having five routes to choose from, Mount Kilimanjaro can accommodate an average of 50,000 tourists a year. The most preferred routes are Marangu and Machame depending on the preference.
It is funny how people preferences can differ. Some like adventure to the route with many climbers where while climbing they talk all the way. But for others they prefer routes with few climbers who enjoy walking alone listening to their music.
Some routes are richer in wildlife compared to others, this also affects ones choice furthermore, some routes are tougher and shorter.
For instance, Umbwe route has small mammals and forest birds, thick montane forest, gives an opportunity to walk along the greater Baranco wall.  It is the hardest of all and the shortest one.
The country policy on tourism put emphasis on low volume high value. The policy is meant to maintain the quality of tourism activities in the country and the quality of (parks) conservation standard.
Unlike many of the African conserved areas, the Tanzanian national parks are well conserved and natural.
