A Tent With a View
The Highest Mountain in Africa
Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s highest free-standing mountain. It is climbed each year by enthusiastic visitors to Tanzania from accomplished climbers to first timers climbing for charity. They each have the same goal - reaching the snow-capped summit. Some take 5 days, others take 8 depending on the route chosen. There are a number of alternative routes, some busier than others.
We have a fantastic partner in Tanzania who specialises in Kilimanjaro climbs established for more than 35 years and family-run. They have a phenomenal success rate of over 90%. Most guests who climb Kilimanjaro combine it with a safari & beach break. We can create the whole experience for you whether it be just the climb or a combination with a safari and/or beach. Between us we have more than 65 years’ experience on the ground.
We have included the 3 most popular routes - the Marangu route, Machame route and Lemosho route with climbs between 7-9 days. It is recommended that climbers take a minimum of 7 days to do the climb. The per person price reduces the larger the group. It’s important to note that all climbers must be 16 years or older.
7 days | US $2010
9 days | US $2845
8 days | US $2350
This is the colder season with the South-East trade winds bringing precipitation and hence snow to the peak. It is quieter on the mountain for those wishing to avoid the crowds.
This is the dry season when the strong winds from the North-East push over the trade winds and mean the lower slopes are covered in cloud whilst the top is clear. Predictably, It is the busiest season although some routes are quieter than others.
