  Mount Kilimanjaro, the "Mountain of Greatness", is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. While you may have your own reason for wanting to climb Kilimanjaro, one thing is common amongst all those who visit - the desire to stand on the highest peak of Africa. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a demanding, challenging feat. But despite the immense height, Mount Kilimanjaro can be successfully climbed by any reasonably fit person. No technical skills are necessary, making Kilimanjaro the highest, most accessible, "walkable" mountain on the planet. Mount Kilimanjaro draws over 25,000 visitors annually. Nearly 50% of all climbers fail to reach the summit. To succeed on the mountain, it is imperative that climbers are guided by an experienced outfitter, with proven competence, reliability and safety. We have partnered with the top Kilimanjaro operator to offer the best guide services to adventurers from around the world.

 
 
DAY 1:

Arrive Arusha, clear Customs and Immigration formalities and transfer to the Springlands Hotel where a climb briefing will be done, followed by dinner and overnight.

DAY 2:

Transfer to Kilimanjaro Park + After completing the entrance formalities at the National Park gate (1,830 me.) we climb up through attractive and unspoilt forest to reach the clearing containing Mandara Hut (2,700 me.). The volcanic remains of Maundy Crater are nearby, and make a good afternoon excursion. An alternative is to simply rest and enjoy the beautiful forest around you. [3-5 hours walking]

 
 
DAY 3:
The first part of the walk is a steep ascent through forest, but the path soon opens out into grassy moorland and, in clear weather, there are good views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks. We climb steadily through the moorland zone, containing giant heather and occasional stands of groundsel, to eventually reach the hut complex at Horombo (3,720 m.). Sunrises and sunsets here are often very spectacular, the site is close to the glaciated dome of Kibo, and there is a real sense of being above the clouds. [4-6 hours walking]

 

Kilimanjaro Climbs - The Marangu Route - www.africansafaris.travel DAY 4:

We climb very gradually towards the lunar desert of the Saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo. The terrain changes to scree and there is a palpable sense of high altitude wilderness. We usually reach Kibo Hut (4,703 m.) at the bottom of the crater wall by midday and the afternoon is free (to contemplate the summit ascent!!). The remainder of the day is spent resting and eating in preparation for the final climb before a very early night! [4-6 hours]

DAY 5:

We will start our ascent by flashlight at about 1 a.m. so that we can be up at Gillman's Point by sunrise. The initial climb is steep over loose volcanic scree, but there are some well-graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace should reach Gillman's (5,685 m.) in five or six hours. We will rest there and spend some time taking in the sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the three hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m.), passing close to the spectacular glaciers that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent is surprisingly fast and we return to Horombo for the night. [11-15 hours walking]

DAY 6:

DAY 7:

Morning at leisure, followed by lunch and a transfer to Arusha for your onward travel arrangements.
