Mount Kilimanjaro climbs

 

Kilimanjaro signifies something special, a large volcano and the highest freestanding mountain in the world towering 5,895 metres above sea level. It is known as the ‘Roof of Africa’ and dominates the savannah landscape of northern Tanzania. It is one of the coveted Seven Summits and yet it’s easily submitted without technical climbing ability.

There is only one place to be: and that’s at the top. Euphoria kicks in as you take a few brief moments of triumph at the top, savouring the breathtaking scenery at sunrise. Then the next challenge is getting down the mountain. You will need an eye for adventure. It’s alluring and no longer a mystery with tens of thousands of tourists and adventurers attempting the climb every year.  You will need physical fitness and strong will power.  We provide the rest by way of great guides, porters to lighten your load and trained medics to ensure your body is faring well each day. On your way up, expect challenge as you walk through five different climate zones reaching arctic cold temperatures around the glaciers that cap Kibo, Kilimanjaro’s summit.

There are six routes to choose from and each one offers a varying degree of difficulty, scenery and again no special equipment is required.

Hike soon because the ice caps are melting.
