What makes Climb Kilimanjaro so special?
Climbing to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is an aspiration for many enthusiastic trekkers. Upon reaching the summit of this iconic mountain you are standing upon the highest point on the African continent.
The summit of Kilimanjaro, painted with snow and ice, seems a world away from the hot, dusty plains of Tanzania, almost 20,000 feet below. Although recent reports have claimed that Kilimanjaro’s snow and ice has disappeared, its peak is still home to huge glaciers and the mountain still experiences regular snowfalls.
Our ascent of Kilimanjaro journeys through the diverse Lemosho route. This gradual ascent takes you amongst picturesque, serene woodland before reaching Shira plateau. After admiring the magnificent scenery from the Shira plateau, a steady climb will bring us to the penultimate Stella Point before the final push to the summit of Kilimanjaro. You can also summit Kilimanjaro by the light of the full moon on selected departure dates.
If you want to extend your summit trek then join our Summits of Meru & Kilimanjaro; Mount Meru is Tanzania’s second highest mountain and climbs through different vegetation zones with a multitude of spectacular views across to our ultimate goal - Kilimanjaro.
