Kilimanjaro

19,341'

 

Kilimanjaro Overview

 

Located in Northern Tanzania, Kilimanjaro is the highest freestanding mountain in the world. What makes this mountain so incredible is the non-technical climb to stand on top of Kilimanjaro as well as the reasonable length of the trip.  Tanzanian staff support such as porters and cooks along with assistance from myself make this a very reasonable undertaking for most individuals comfortable with hiking 6-8 miles a day gaining approximately 2000-3000 ' 

 

 

Machame Route

 

One of the more popular routes, and rightfully so.  On the Machame route we travel an average of 6-8 hours a day, with our summit day of course being the longest.  We spend 7 days on this route, which is longer than the standard of 6 days because it allows more time for acclimitazation, and a higher success rate.  Porters and local staff will assist with carrying tents, group gear, food, etc, and you will be left with 10-15 pounds of personal gear to carry each day

 

 

 

Lemosho Route

 

A much less popular variant to the Machame Route.  The Lemosho Route will start with a bit of a rugged drive to the trailhead.  One of the incredible things about this route is your probability of seeing wildlife.  Colobus monkeys and Blue monkeys are common,  however Water Buffalo are rare, but around and necessitate traveling with an armed guard for the first day.  Our first three days will be quite a bit quieter, and on the fourth day we will join the Machame Route on the way up to Lava Tower, before becoming the same route for the duration of the climb

Why climb with us?

 

My start on Kilimanjaro came by living and working down in Tanzania on the mountain for almost four months. During this time I picked up a bit of Swahili, made friends with locals, and figured out the logistics required to make these trips feisable.  I work with the best local guide services to help provide the best experience possible to the customer.  I have completed 12 climbs on the mountain on both the Machame and Lemosho routes, and have a passion for showing people around the mountain and teaching them as much as I can.  I have a significant amount of high altitude experience, including multiple ascents of Denali and Aconcagua, as well as Lobuche in Nepal.  I strive to create a seamless trip by ensuring everything from pre trip materials to on the ground logistics are fully taken care of while in Tanzania

Other Activities

 

In addition to taking care of your Kilimanjaro needs, there are some worthwhile activites to check out during your time in Tanzania.  The most popular of these options is to go on Safari.  Everyone has heard about safari but the most popular options are between 3-5 days exploring the Ngorogoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and the Serengetti.

 

Another option is to check out the island of Zanzibar.  This is a very cultural island that was once the center of the slave trade.  It is now known as a spice island for its production of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and black pepper. Activities on the island include resting on one of the many beaches, SCUBA diving, or visiting the cultural center of Stonetown

We are gaining confidence for bookings June-September 2021.  We will still offer a flexible cancellation policy within our companies ability to not lose money.  We really want to start running trips back to Tanzania again as the mountain is far quieter than normal, and our local friends are hurting for work.  Come experience Tanzania and Kilimanjaro, even possibly a safari with us this upcoming summer!

Prices start from $4999 per person with double occupancy in our hotels.  Please contact for single supplement cost.  Safari prices range in cost dependent on length of time, and location you would like to visit as customers typically customize this.  These costs for a 3 day safari start at $1499 per person.
