Mount Kilimanjaro

Trekking at mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It has three volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world: 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level and about 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) above its plateau base.

Kilimanjaro is the fourth most topographically prominent peak on Earth. It is part of Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. Because of its shrinking glaciers and ice fields, which are projected to disappear between 2030 and 2050, it has been the subject of many scientific studies.

 

 

Our Experience at Trekking at mount Kilimanjaro

Because we’re a mountain-based company, you’ll find safe scheduling, health precautions, and training for all of our employees. Our office staff are all outsiders with a lot of Kilimanjaro experience, and they remember what it’s like to fantasize about moving to the top of Africa! They can answer your questions and assist you in putting the entire trip into perspective. So don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email if you have any questions.

Our local aides are genuinely lovely people who are highly qualified and experienced. We’ve been taking groups from all over the world, including Irish and UK walking clubs, schools and colleges, and even record breakers, up Kilimanjaro for a long time. We’ve had five customers propose to their loved ones upon reaching the summit, taken the most youthful British individual to the summit, and our Kilimanjaro acclimatization program has given us an average 95 percent success record in reaching Africa’s highest point.

 

 

We have frequent climbs on four of the main routes as one of the top Mount Kilimanjaro trip operators:

 

  • Our favourite approach is a 7-day trek up Mount Kilimanjaro through the Machame path, which provides good acclimatization and views.
  • After the second camp (Shira Plateau), the Lemosho route is the same as the Machame route, but it provides you an extra day on the mountain.
  • The Rongai route, which approaches the peak from the north and is a less traveled option, is another option. It’s also great on rainy days because it’s more sheltered.
  • Climbs can also be done using the 9-day Northern Circuit route for those with more time.

 

Best an ideal opportunity to Climb Kilimanjaro?

The main seasons of Moshi are December to March and June to October, with average temperatures of 22 degrees Celsius and greatest point temperatures of – 7 degrees Celsius. The downpours usually occur in April, May, and November, however due to recent environmental changes, the downpours might now occur earlier or later. We run our Rongai movements during the downpours since the northern side of the mountain is more protected.

A full moon ascent of Kilimanjaro is frequently a popular choice. Since Kilimanjaro is arranged on the equator, under a full sky of both north and south star groupings, the highest point night can be spent wandering under the light of a full magnificent moon, eliminating the need for a headtorch. Indeed, from a high vantage point on the pinnacle, the North Star and the Southern Cross can be seen in a similar sky. If you need to avoid the busier evenings during a full moon, we recommend that you offset your highest point night.
