Africa’s tallest mountain and one of the world’s highest free standing massifs, Mt Kilimanjaro can nevertheless be conquered without technical experience. Lofty as it might be, Mt Kilimanjaro doesn’t require any mountaineering skills to climb. Spectacular trekking routes pass through 5 different vegetation zones: grassland; rainforest; heathland; moorland with strange giant plants; alpine desert; before reaching the arctic summit zone.
There are a number of routes to choose from and all are challenging due to the altitude. Your chances of reaching the summit are vastly improved with good preparation and acclimatisation. Longer treks can also increase your chances of reaching the summit.
All of our treks are accompanied by qualified mountain guides, and porters carry all equipment. You will only need to carry a day pack. Our trekking operator is a member of the Kilimanjaro Association of Tour Operators (KIATO) which adheres to a range of guidelines for the fair treatment of porters and other crew.
