Conquer the Kilimanjaro

With 5,895 meters, the highest mountain of Africa as well as the highest detached mountain in the world! And you can conquer it! We organize climbs whole year-round via one of the five routes to the top. Have a look at the climate diagram underneath the map.

For all routes, we strongly advise taking at least one extra day for acclimatization. This lowers the risk of altitude sickness considerably, improves the overall experience and increases the chance to reach the summit, Uhuru Peak.

Rongai

A quieter and less known route. Because the route is a quieter one with fewer climbers, the chances of spotting wildlife are bigger. The route starts at the barer northern side of the Kilimanjaro.
