Since the summit of Kilimanjaro was first reached by the German geographer Hans Meyer and Austrian mountain climber Ludwig Purtscheller on 5th October 1889, literally thousands of people have succeeded in, or have attempted. the very same feat. It is estimated that today, a staggering 25,000 people a year set off on the journey.
There are 5 main routes up to the summit: Marangu, Machame, Rongai, Lemosho and Umbwe. You can pick the route that you think is best suited to you, and also the one that will give you exactly want you personally want to get out of your trek. Your accommodation will be tents, which are carried up by porters, but if you don’t fancy sleeping under canvas, then you should definitely choose the Marangu Route, as this is the only route where you sleep in dormitory style huts. All climbs have to be pre-booked, so you cannot just turn up on a whim and hope to start your climb that day or the next.
We offer either pre-arranged treks on given dates with groups up to about 8 – 12 people (for safety reasons), or you can arrange a private trek (minimum 2 people).
Obviously, it goes without saying that a reasonable level of fitness is required to climb Kilimanjaro, and we would request that you consult your doctor to be given the ‘all-clear’ to climb prior to booking your trip. The best months to climb Kilimanjaro are from January to mid-March and June to October, as these are the dry seasons.
