Snow-capped Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s tallest free-standing mountain at 5895 meters above sea level. It has three major volcanic centres: Shira (4160 m), Snow capped Kibo (5895 m) and Mawenzi. Widely considered the roof of Africa, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro through one of the great trekking routes is one of the most rewarding experiences that any person can enjoy.
We organize treks to the summit of the Mountain using 5 different routes: Machame, Marangu, Rongai, Lemosho and Umbwe. Regardless of the route, no special equipment (just walking gear) or previous experience is required to climb the Kilimanjaro. A good level of fitness but specially an exceptional level of determination (the last 500 meters of ascent to the summit will be extremely demanding, regardless of your physical condition) is all you will need.
When climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, one needs to take into account the seasons: There are 2 “rainy” seasons, from mid-November to mid-December and also in April and May though global weather patterns can sometimes make these “wet months” dry. In any case, we do organize climbs during the wet months and, though rain can create a bit of discomfort, it can also lead to snow in the higher altitudes which make the whole experience much more dramatic. Besides, you’ll have the mountain almost to yourself allowing you to enjoy it without crowds of tourists around you.
