Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing

At an almighty 5895 mt, it is the tallest mountain in Africa (not surprisingly nicknamed the “Roof of Africa ”) and is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world that can be ascended spontaneously without the need for technical gear. Ice-capped all year round it is, in fact, a dormant (but not extinct!) volcano. Kilimanjaro is one of the most spectacular sights to see not just in Tanzania but quite possibly in the whole of Africa.

We offer all seven routes for Mount Kilimanjaro

Machame and Marangu are considered to be the easiest with high completion rates. The only drawback with these routes is that they are the main ones used by most tour operators and so have high levels of traffic. Both of these routes are about 100kms in total. The Machame route based on tented accommodation and is a 7-8 day trek, whereas the Marangu route based on hut accommodation (hut accommodation is on a communal dormitory basis with washing facilities) and is a 6-7 day trek.
