When you go on a Roho Ya Chui African safari, it does not have to just be about the animals. For outdoors and nature enthusiasts, striking onto good hiking adventures in Africa is just as desirable. Fortunately, newcomers to Africa quickly find out that here is a continent with a little bit to offer everyone, and if you’re looking for great hiking opportunities, you will absolutely find them. The following list are but a few of the excellent hiking adventures in Africa at your disposal should you choose to go through Roho Ya Chui.
Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania)
Without a doubt Africa’s most popular hiking destination, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is almost 20,000 feet tall and plays host to literally thousands of adventurers each year trying to scale Africa’s tallest peak. That doesn’t mean you have to be a world-class hiker, however. You can take any number of hiking routes to see the sights of Kilimanjaro, from the easygoing scenic route to the tougher but more rewarding expert climbs.
Mount Kenya (Kenya)
If not Mount Kilimanjaro, why not Mount Kenya? Africa’s second tallest peak, Kenya differs quite a bit from Kilimanjaro in terms of geography. Hikers here will need to be a little more wary of forests and moorlands on the way to the top.
Rwenzori Mountains (Uganda)
Popularly called the Mountains of the Moon, the Rwenzori Mountains are one of Africa’s natural landmarks. Highlighted by Mount Stanley (Africa’s third highest mountain), the hiking along the Rwenzori is marked by a combination of thick forests, glaciers and even elephants. Due to the dangers posed to amateur hikers, however, guides are required.
Mount Meru (Tanzania)
While often forgotten in lieu of its larger and more famous neighbor, Mount Meru is one of the tallest peaks on the continent and a must-see for anyone looking for hiking adventures in Africa. On your way to the top, for instance, you are sure to pass by hundreds of different animal species and go through some of the most beautiful rain forests and game trails you’ll find in Africa.
The Drakensberg (South Africa)
If you’re taking an African safari, you might as well spend some time on the Drakensberg. This South African mountain range offers a little bit of everything for nature enthusiasts. At lower elevations, go out for some light hiking or horse riding. For more of a challenge, attempt the higher peaks. Regardless of difficulty, the Drakensberg will have a trail for you.
Mulanje Mountain (Malawi)
For more family-oriented hiking adventures in Africa, Mulanje Mountain might just be the right fit for you. With plenty of cooking facilities and hut housing available to you on the mountain, you should have no problem bringing the whole family along with you as you scale your way to the peak.
