About The Mountain


About Kilimanjaro

          Located in Tanzania, East Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest free standing mountain in the world and one of the Seven Summits prized by climbers. It stands 19,341 feet tall (5,895 meters), and has 3 volcanic cones as peaks: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira.

          Kibo is the highest peak followed by Mawenzi at 16,983 feet (5,149 meters) and then Shira at 13,000 feet (3,962 meters). Both Mawenzi and Shira are extinct volcanoes. Kibo is dormant (meaning it could erupt again), but the last major eruption took place between 150,000 and 200,000 years ago.

          The best months to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro are December to February and September, which offer the clearest and warmest conditions. June to August are also good climbing months, with cooler weather. There is a short rainy season in October and November, with afternoon rains, but clear skies during the morning and evenings. March to May is the long rainy season.

          Your climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro will take you through 5 distinct climatic zones, offering unique vegetation and wildlife and scenery.

Trekking Routes

Our years of experience have taught us that these routes offer you the best combination of adventure, scenery and success.

The 9-day routes allow us the time to properly acclimatize, thus increasing our chances of summiting. They also allow us to bypass the crowds that tend to climb on the most popular routes (Rongai, Marangu and Machame routes). Our trekkers will be able to climb in relative peace and quiet and at a leisurely pace (pole pole). This allows our head guides to better interact with our trekkers during the entire trip.

Lemosho-Western Breach Blue Mountain

lemosho-western Breach Route

9-Day (Favourite)

Only a few outfitters offer this route, due to the expertise required of the head guides and porters, which means we won't be climbing with crowds and you can spend more time interacting with our team of guides and enjoying the climb. Also, the 9 days of this route give you plenty of time to acclimatize, which increases your chances of summiting. 

 
 
Lemosho-Barafu Crater Route Yellow Mountain

lemosho-barafu CRATER route

9-Day 

Popular route. We begin on the western side of the mountain, while we cross through the Shira Plateau. We climb high and sleep low, in order to properly acclimatize to increase your chance of summiting. 

 
 
Machame Route Red Mountain

machame route

7-Day

This route begins on the southern side of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Machame is a popular route well-known for its incredible scenery. As a result, it is also the route with the most traffic.
