Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro

Situated south of the equator in Tanzania at 19,340 feet (5895m), ‘Kili’ is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest “free standing” mountain in the world, where huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit.

Spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for the successful trekker, as well as the satisfaction of topping out on this mighty peak of Africa. One of the ‘Seven Summits’, being the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Any reasonably fit person who enjoys walking can reach the summit of Kilimanjaro through a good programme of acclimatisation. Our itinerary over 10 days is well designed to give you the best chance of acclimatising and successfully reaching the summit, whether you are doing it for yourself or as a charity challenge.

Our trek takes the less-trodden Machame route on Kilimanjaro which allows for better acclimatisation than many of the other routes to the top. This also allows us to camp and fully appreciate the splendour of our surroundings and the clear night skies. The terrain changes as you ascend the mountain, passing through thick forest, moorland and scree en route to the highest point of the crater, Uhuru Peak.
