CLIMB KILIMANJARO

Snow-capped Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and the world's tallest free-standing mountain at 5,895 meters above sea level

It has three major volcanic centres: Shira (4160 m), snow-capped Kibo (5895 m) and Mawenzi. Widely considered the roof of Africa, climbing mount Kilimanjaro through one of the great trekking routes is one of the most rewarding experiences that any person can enjoy.

We organize treks to the summit of the mountain using 5 different routes: Machame, Marangu, Rongai, Lemosho and Umbwe. Regardless of the route, no special equipment (just walking gear) or previous experience is required to climb Kilimanjaro. A good level of fitness but specially an exceptional level of determination (the last 500 meters of ascent to the summit will be extremely demanding, regardless of your physical condition) is all you will need

We do not usually recommend the Marangu route because, though it is the only route where you can sleep in huts, they sometimes prove to be less comfortable than the tents we provide. Besides, it has a lower success rate (specially the 5 days version) because it does not use the "climb high, sleep low" principle. The Umbwe route is usually considered the most difficult route but, if you are experienced, ita can also provide you with some of the most spectacular scenery while having very few people around climbing mount Kilimanjaro with you.
