Climbing Kilimanjaro is an appealing expedition for many mountaineers, who crave the trek to feel free, reaching the summit of the “Roof of Africa”.
Located in Tanzania, just south of the equator, at 5895m Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent. The Lemosho route starts to the west of Kilimanjaro and traverses the Shira plateau before climbing the Barranco wall and ascending to Uhuru Peak via Stella Point. The Lemosho route is one of the quieter routes on the mountain. Our 8 day itinerary allows plenty of time for acclimatization - a key factor for avoiding altitude sickness - and has a very high success rate.
The Rongai route is considered by many to be one of the easiest routes on Kilimanjaro and it is the only route that approaches from the North. It is less popular than the other routes and as a result much quieter. Our 6 day Rongai route is a good choice if you have limited time and are looking for a quieter trek. Day 2 is a big day in terms of height gain but most people cope fairly well.
The Machame route is often considered to be the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. With views of the national parks, our 7 day Machame route is an excellent choice for the adventurous trekker. The route incorporates a high lunch on day 3 at Lava Tower (4600m) which is a great aid to acclimatisation.
