Mountain Climbing & Hiking
Mount Kilimanjaro is 5,869 metre, is popular mountain for most of our tourist who travel to Tanzania, then Mt Meru, another of Tanzania’s volcanic peaks, is also popular, with the varied animal and plant life to be found on its slopes being a major draw. The challenging ascent to the crater of Ol Donyo Lengai passes through some fantastic scenery, with panoramic views of the Rift Valley. Mount Kilimanjaro is located in the Nothern part of Tanzania with other National Parks such as Serengeti, Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro, and Mkomazi. You may also like other mountains in Tanzania like Mount Meru, Udzungwa, Usambala, Uluguru.
128KM (80Miles) from Arusha. About one hour's drive from Kilimanjaro airport.
What to do
Six usual trekking routes to the summit and other more-demanding mountaineering routes. Day or overnight hikes on the Shira plateau. Nature trails on the lower reaches. Trout fishing. Visit the beautiful Chala Crater Lake on the mountain's South Eastern slopes.
When to go
Clearest and warmest conditions from December to February, but also dry (and colder) from July to September.
Huts and campsites on the mountain. Several hotels and camp sites outside the park in the village of Marangu and town of Moshi.
Climb slowly to increase your acclimatisation time and maximise your chances of reaching the summit. To avoid altitude sickness, allow a minimum of five nights, preferably even more for the climb. Take your time and enjoy the beauty of the mountains.
