Climb Mount Kilimanjaro
To climb Mount Kilimanjaro is an experience of a lifetime, highly recommended to the adventurous traveller willing to forego some of life's luxuries for a few days. The summit can be achieved by any physically fit person and no climbing experience is necessary.
Kilimanjaro has six starting gates, three points via which you can access the summit and two descent routes. Hence there are many tour routes, each with different scenery and varying degrees of exertion required. The Marangu and Rongai routes are wildly tipped as the “easiest” trails, and the Machame route is particularly renowned for its stunning scenery. Routes from Umbwe, Lemosho and Shira offer more challenging options. However, it is the duration of a climb that is as important as the ease of the route.
On climbs to the summit it is advisable to join a trek of at least 6 days in order to acclimatise your body to the increasing altitude as you pass through five different climatic zones. Our treks are all done on a private basis and have been carefully devised at around this duration to give you the best chance of success. Longer durations can be arranged for those that would prefer a slower pace.
We can help you sift through the options to tailor a climb to your exact requirements accounting for your levels of fitness and budget.
