Kilimanjaro Destination Management

When customers ask us what we love about climbing Kilimanjaro the answer is easy: Kilimanjaro is the ultimate mini-adventure. You can leave work on Friday, spend 7 days climbing through incredibly beautiful scenery, stand on the roof of Africa, get down, have a beer and be back at work on Monday. And to top it all you don't need to be super-fit or an experienced mountaineer- average fitness plus lots of determination is enough to get the job done.

We operate all routes on the mountain, except for the Western Breach, offering a completely bespoke private label service.

If you have just 9 days and want to have the best chance of going home and saying "I climbed Kilimanjaro" the Machame route is the one for you. Starting in the South-West of Kilimanjaro it circuits south before climbing to Uhuru Peak via Stellar Point.

With excellent acclimatisation and varied and interesting scenery every day it is a great choice for the novice climber.

Approaching from the West of Kilimanjaro, the Lemosho route is one of our highly recommended routes. The first three days of the ascent are quiet and relatively untraveled, then on day four it joins the busy Machame route.

A wonderful route in terms of scenery, it offers unequalled views over the majestic Shira plateau. The success rate for this route is comparable to the Machame route.

The Northern Circuit route is the newest officially approved route up Mount Kilimanjaro, and one of the few ways to see its quieter, more remote northern slope.

This is an extended, nine day climb which offers excellent acclimatisation time and provides views of the rugged and highly varied countryside on all sides of the great mountain.

The Rongai route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the north east, near the border of Kenya and Tanzania. Its main attraction is that it is very quiet and traverses virtually untouched wilderness.

Ascent is via the scree path to Gilman’s Point with a traverse round the rim to Uhuru Peak. Descent is along the Marangu route.
