WHAT TO EXPECT
You do not have to be a mountain climber to conquer the highest mountain in Africa.With good hiking boots and determination you can make it to the top. But it is not a walk in the park.It is a gruelling climb in difficult conditions.
The most popular routes are Marangu, Machame and the Rongai route, all named after the places from where they begin. The least difficult routes are Marangu and Rongai. More difficult routes are Machame, Shira and Lemosho routes.
Kilimanjaro was a volcano in its younger days and is the world’s largest freestanding mountain. This means it is not part of a mountain range, but seems to ‘grow’ from the surrounding plains into a snow-capped peak at almost 6000m.
Kilimanjaro-Experience’s staff has experienced the mountain themselves, climbed it and conquered their own fears and limitations. We have the practical knowledge to assist clients in experiencing this highlight of their trip to Africa.
If it is your dream to climb Africa’s highest mountain, you have come to the right place. Kilimanjaro-Experience is a Tanzanian-registered and fully licensed company, based in Moshi, and has been conducting Kilimanjaro treks, climbs and safaris since 2007.
Why climb Kilimanjaro?
At 5895m high, the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is not only the highest mountain in Africa and one if the world’s “Great 7” summits, it is also the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
Aside from the striking beauty of this dormant volcano, the breathtaking vistas, and the array of flora and fauna that can be found in its surrounds, Kilimanjaro’s popularity also stems from the fact that it can be summited without technical gear or extreme fitness and fairly cheaply. You will need willpower, a sense of humor and a healthy body. Aside from that, there is nothing to stop you from standing on the roof of Africa.
Why book with us?
At Kilimanjaro-Experience Safety and professionalism are our main concerns – we never compromise here.
Some of our guides have been on the mountain more than 100 times, taking guests safely up to Stella or Gilmans Point and to the summit at Uhuru Peak and, most importantly, bringing them safely back.
Our reputed cooks receive regular training from professional chefs and will make sure that you have as healthy and balanced a diet as possible while climbing Kilimanjaro. Preparing such great meals under such extreme conditions is nothing short of miraculous .
Kilimanjaro-Experience also strictly adheres to the guidelines of the Kilimanjaro Porter Assistance Project (KPAP). This means that unlike some other operators we can assure you that our porters are treated and paid fairly and are well-equipped on our trips.!
We use imported VauDe and Tatonka mountain tents to keep you dry even in the extreme event of a snowstorm. Before your expedition, our operation manager will do a thorough safety and information briefing and check your equipment.
