Are you ready for the climb of a lifetime? The lofty summit of Mount Kilimanjaro rises to 5,895 meters in elevation, towering over the East African plains of Tanzania. Chalema Tanzania Safaris will guide you to the very top of this majestic freestanding mountain over the course of just six days. Our adventure will begin in the montane rainforest lying close against the slopes of this dormant volcano and take us all the way to Uhuru Peak: a world of ice and rock, and the highest point on the African continent. We’ll be following the Umbwe Route, which has long been considered one of the most challenging paths to Kilimanjaro’s summit. While the climb is entirely non-technical in nature, this Kilimanjaro trek is most appropriate for travelers in excellent physical condition who have previous experience at high altitude.
Please note: Travelers with less trekking experience and more time to spend on the mountain may prefer another of the hiking itineraries offered by Chalema Tanzania Safaris, such as the Lemosho Route or Machame Route.
