Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro, beautiful and often mysterious, is one of the great wonders of East Africa. When you see it, you will understand why. Not only is this the highest peak in Africa, it is also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, rising in breath-taking isolation from the surrounding area – to 5,895 metres. Many people see climbing Kilimanjaro as their ultimate challenge and goal and we can help you achieve this. 

 Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s most accessible high summits for visitors from around the world. It is vital that anyone intending to do the climb should read carefully the information we give and when on the mountain you must be fully equipped and dressed for mountainous conditions which can often be extreme. There are six commonly used trekking routes to the summit, other activities can include day or overnight hikes on the Shira plateau; nature trails on the lower reaches; trout fishing; or a visit to the beautiful Chala crater lake on the mountain’s south-eastern slopes.

When to go
The clearest and warmest conditions are from December to February; but it is also dry (and colder) from July-September.

This can include huts and campsites on the mountain; or several hotels from basic to luxury and campsites outside the park in the village of Marangu and the nearby town of Moshi.
Climb slowly to increase your acclimatization time and maximize your chances of reaching the summit. To avoid altitude sickness, allow a minimum of five nights, preferably even more for the climb. Take your time and enjoy the beauty of the mountain!
