Kilimanjaro trekking

Africa’s tallest peak paints an instantly recognisable silhouette, rising all alone from the acacia forests and scrubland on the border of Kenya and Tanzania. It’s actually the world’s tallest freestanding mountain at 5,985m, but that doesn’t mean it’s out of reach for the eager novice. We offer a range of routes to suit every level of experience and fitness – trust us, it’s worth the effort. With sweeping views of the African veldt, you’ll be able to pick out the tiny herds of migrating elephant, wandering giraffe and rare crowned eagles riding the thermals overhead. 

Best time to visit

Kilimanjaro’s location near the equator is a great advantage, with very little seasonal variation in climbing conditions. Having said that, the rainy seasons from March to May and November to December may make the track a little slippery. Generally speaking, January, February and September are considered the best times to climb the mountain.

 

Life on the trek

Kilimanjaro treks are well provisioned, with porters and hot meals on hand to help keep your strength up for the ascent. Most days include about five to ten hours trekking, with regular breaks to eat and refuel. There are dedicated toilet huts, and you’ll have a bowl of warm water to wash with on a daily basis. Porters will help set up camp daily and carry your heavier packs.
