It's time to start your adventures
Below is an overview of each Kilimanjaro Route tour we offer. For a more detailed description (including prices) of each of the four Kilimanjaro hiking routes we offer, click on the link (the pink links) below each tour overview descriptions.
The Lemosho Route is a less heavily trekked route that crosses over a collapsed volcanic crater and is the preferred route for those who look forward to experiencing the trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro without encountering masses of fellow trekkers along the journey.
The Machame Route has become one of the, if not the most, popular route to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
As a result of an extra day to acclimatise and trekking at high altitude during the day and sleeping at lower elevations, the probability of successfully reaching the Uhuru peak is higher than on some of the other routes.
For many it is the preferred route due to the beautiful views and the opportunity to cross the different climate zones with their unique vegetations.
Due to a starting altitude of 3,700m, this route is not recommended for inexperienced trekkers that have not trekked at such altitude before or those who require more time to acclimatise at high elevations.
The Shira Route itself runs along the Lemosho Route but is distinguishes by starting at the Shira Gate which is located further up Mount Kilimanjaro, past the rainforest zone.
Known as the original Londrossi route, you will register with the Kilimanjaro National Park authorities at the Londrossi Gate before we bring you up to an elevation of 3,700m to start your trek.
Approaching the summit from the north, close to the Kenyan border, the Rongai route is unique in its more gradual ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro boasting with the opportunity to experience some untouched wilderness.
Along this trek is not unlikely for you to see some of Africa’s wildlife, for instance, elephants, antelopes and buffalo.
Due to its gradual slope, trekkers on this route are more likely to suffer from altitude sickness.
We recommend the longer trek duration to ensure better chances for a successful trek to the summit.
