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.
