Trip Code: KMR

10 Days

Mt. Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, as well as one of the best known mountains in the world. The climb to Mt. Kilimanjaro is non- technical and from the summit 5,895m or 19,340ft the expansive views across Africa, diverse flora and landscapes is captivating. Kilimanjaro looks like an island, surrounded by the hot and dry plains of Africa. It amazes all with its widely contrasting vegetation; from rain forest to moorlands to its towering cliffs and glaciers. Kilimanjaro is also considered the world's highest free standing mountain located in Tanzania bordering with Kenya.

We climb the mountain via the picturesque Machame Route which traverses several of the scenic micro-environments found at the different elevations on the mountain. The route passes through a dormant volcano, the climb to Kilimanjaro is occasionally steeper in some section, a towering cliff of snow and ice is dramatically in descending order from the summit slopes. Each day we ascend through the various climatic zones, each with unique and different views and highlights. Close to the top of the mountain, the route takes you close to some of the summit glaciers that glisten in the morning light. It is a view to behold as you take those final steps to the summit.

Trip Highlights

Traverse rain forest, moorland, alpine desert, snow fields and ice cliffs, all virtually on the equator.. is truly a magnificent adventure!
