Epic Holidays To Kilimanjaro

If your mission is to climb the Seven Summits (the highest mountains on each of the seven continents), then Kilimanjaro is on your list! But maybe you're a tiny bit less ambitious. Perhaps you got really fit during lockdown and you want to take advantage of that fitness before the office routine makes it vanish.

The thing is that Kilimanjaro is a trek, not a climb. It is a challange, but not too much of one. If you're healthy and really fit and have the time for it and the desire for it it is an absolutely awesome thing to do!

Read on below to find some more deatail about the options or contact us to find about:

  • the best time to go,
  • the best route for you,
  • the available tours.

Getting to the top of Kilimanjaro requires being well organised and well guided. Properly arranged, it is the experience of a lifetime. We have access to the best operators to make sure that your Kilamanjaro climb is an epic experience! Why not combine it with a game viewing safari and a few days on the beach afterwards?

Epic Options for Climbing Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro  is the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest free standing mountain anywhere in the world, with its summit at 19341 feet above sea level, and permanently ice capped.

Of the Seven Summits, Kilimanjaro is considered the easiest and it does not require climbing skills. You can trek up it, but you need to be fit and well acclimatised and it will take several days. If you are a climber there are also climbing options on the mountain.

Hikers and Climbers generally need a minimum of five days (but preferably six or more days) to reach the summit. You ascend from the tropical rain forests, through heath land, to alpine desert, finally reaching the permanent glaciers and the summit, Uhuru Peak.

There are several routes, including:

  • The Lemosho Route, an unspoilt, remote, little-used and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau. It takes nine days.

  • The Londorosi Route which is the longest route,  but less crowded and provides one of the most spectacular scenic views of both Shira Plateau and Western Breach wall. It takes Eight days.

  • The Machame Standard Route, which combines hiking and climbing and takes 8 days.

  • The Marangu Route, which is one of the most popular and straightforward, and therefore perhaps the best for novices. It takes seven days.

  • The Rongai Route, which rewards you with a gradual slope to hike up on, a variety of beautiful vegetation, bird viewing opportunities and a good chance to see blue monkeys and colobus monkeys. It takes eight days.

Once we know your experience level, what you want your holiday to be like and when you want to go, we can work with the best operators of Kilimanjaro climbs to match you up with exactly what you are looking for and get you there, and anywhere else you would like to go on your holiday, at the best rates and with ABTA and ATOL protection.
