Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak is located in the Kilimanjaro National Park which is one of Tanzania’s most popular parks, and a World Heritage Site with over 2 500 species of plants and 140 mammal species.

Kilimanjaro is located in Northern Tanzania  close to the Kenyan border. Rising abruptly from the open plains, the snow-capped dormant volcano, is one of Africa’s most iconic images.  The summit can be reached by any reasonably fit person. The total climb normally takes five to six days and involves four or five overnight stays in comfortable mountain huts.  There are several routes  to the summit, including Machame, Shira,  Rongai, Lemosho and others.

View our Kilimanjaro and Meru treks below and contact us to start planning.


Mount Kilimanjaro Trek


The Shira route is great for those who like to trek far from the beaten track.  Since it starts from a dizzyingly high altitude, this route is not recommended for first time climbers.

Kilimanjaro Rongai Route


The Rongai route starts on the north side of the mountain just south of the Kenyan border, and is one of the least traveled routes with the highest success rate.

Kilimanjaro Machame Route


One of the most popular routes for those determined to reach the summit, also known as the Whiskey Route. The reason for its popularity lies mainly in its range of natural habitats and its flourishing scenery.

Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route


Lemosho Route is a fresher route on Mount Kilimanjaro that approaches from the west. This route is the least-used route on Kilimanjaro, getting you far away from the crowds. The trailhead is at high elevation, and thus we start slow and easy on this route. The hike across the plateau is one of the most beautiful hikes in Africa.


Mount Meru is perfect for acclimatization prior to attempting Mount Kilimanjaro. Meru is the third highest peak in Africa and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4 568m. It is also a great for those looking to do a lower altitude trek.

Mt Meru Trekking Tanzania


Meru is a melody of green wrinkled foothills, cracks, crater holes, saddles and summit ridges. The trail is picture perfect – crossing the natural amphitheatre, skirting the ridge, climbing above the saddle, and ascending to the top.

Mt Meru Trekking Tanzania


Mount Meru is hailed as the perfect warm up for Kilimanjaro, or for those with limited time but still want to climb to great heights. The 4 day trek allows more time to enjoy the views and magnificent landscapes.
