Mountain Climb

 

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa and the tallest free-standing volcanic mountain in the world, rising to 5,895m (19,336ft).  It is surrounded by beautiful lush montane forest which is home to a variety of animals.  It is one of the most accessible of the seven summits, the highest mountains on each of the world's continents, and therefore attracts visitors from all over the world.

 

Mount Kilimanjaro rises from the dry African plains, through a wide belt of forest and high alpine heath to an almost bare desert and finally, the snow capped summit, Uhuru Peak.  Located just 3 degrees south of the Equator, Mount Kilimanjaro is composed of three extinct volcanoes; Kibo 5,895m (19,336ft), Mawenzi 5,149m (16,896ft) and Shira 3,962m (13,000ft).  Kilimanjaro can be climbed via six routes:  Machame, Marangu, Lemosho, Rongai, Umbwe and Shira.  Depending on which route you choose, the climb can take anything from 5 to 9 days.  The two most popular routes are Marangu and Machame, largely because they are the most accessible starting points and take fewer days; however other routes are becoming more popular.  Spending longer on the mountain helps with acclimatisation and therefore increases your chance of success.  This is recommended where time and budget allows.

 

On the Marangu Route, accommodation is in alpine huts.  For all other routes accommodation is camping throughout.

 

We can also provide further details regarding pricing, equipment, tipping and altitude.  Please email us for more information about each route and we will provide you with itinerary.
