Mount Kilimanjaro


Tanzania is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, and many mountain climbers visit Tanzania for this epic climbing adventure. Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano. It has three volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world measuring in at 5,895 meters (19340 ft) above sea level. Kibo peak is the highest point and the summit where mountaineers end their hikes. 

Mount Kilimanjaro has several attractions and these are the things that you will see and experience on your trek:  montane forest, wildlife, mountain streams, volcanic features and snow. During the Kilimanjaro trek, climbers will pass through 5 ecological zones, with different climates. Official trails have been established which lead you to the summit peak. Your choice of trails are Marangu, Machame, Lemosho, Northern Circuit Route, Rongai and Umbwe. Alpine tents are used as accommodation on all but one of the Kilimanjaro routes. If a mountain hut is more your style, Marangu route is for you. Mweka route is used to descend down for those climbers who used Machame, Lemosho, Umbwe and the Northern Circuit going up.

Below are the famous and favorite Kilimanjaro trips you can choose from. 


Mount Kilimanjaro is a not a technical mountain to climb. Therefore every person that is physically fit can summit this legendary mountain. The cost to climb “Kili” varies and is based on the trail and number of days. The number of people in your climbing party will also have an influence. If you are interested in climbing to the roof of Africa kindly contact us for trip details and an accurate quote.

Booking tip: The best time to go and climb Kilimanjaro is over the dry season. Dry months are from June to December and January to March. April and May are rainy months. The terrain is wet and summiting over this time is extremely difficult due to increased glacier. Experienced mountaineers and hikers can still climb Kilimanjaro during May. We make use of the Marangu route seeing that the accommodation on this route are mountain huts.
