Kilimanjaro Climb-9 Days
A friendly welcome, endemic fauna and flora, the history, geology and local mythology – Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Chagga guides and porters,
Mount Kilimanjaro, on the northern border of Tanzania, is Africa’s highest mountain and the largest free standing mountain in the world. This iconic mountain rises from coastal scrub-land to a breathtaking, snow capped height of 5,895m/19,30ft.
Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the world's most accessible high altitude summit climbs. Lemosho route is gradual and non-technical. For those who embrace the challenge, Kilimanjaro is a humbling, gratifying and utterly magical experience, testing courage, determination and tenacity.
The adventure begins with a 4X4 drive through Western Kilimanjaro to Londrossi gate for registration, passing through village communities to the trail-head. The trek begins within lush montane forest; home to elusive eland, elephant, leopard, buffalo and small mammals.
Each day, as the trek gains altitude, the scenery changes; from montane forest into the moorland zone, carpeted by heathers and giant lobelias; above 4000m/13,123ft, the barren lunar landscape supports only mosses, lichen and a few hardy birds. Finally, the vegetation gives way to the glaciers and peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo. The ultimate quest is snow capped Uhuru Peak on 'the roof of Africa'
Kilimanjaro is a scenic, climatic tour that passes through five ecological zones, from equatorial tropics to Arctic conditions. While the temperatures in the rainforest are generally very mild, averaging 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 26 degrees Centigrade), as altitude is gained, precipitation levels and temperatures drop. During the night ascent to the summit, temperatures are frequently well below zero. Climbers need to be prepared for a wide range of temperatures, especially extreme cold.
