Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing, Trekking, Hiking in Tanzania- There are seven Mount Kilimanjaro routes and they vary in length and difficulty. The easiest of the different climbing routes up Kilimanjaro

Climbing Kilimanjaro - Routes in Brief

There are several routes available to climbers on Kilimanjaro, each offering something different in the way of scenery and terrain. Adventure Kenya Safaris choose to offer the routes that provide the best possible chance for our clients to reach the summit safely; as a bonus these have the most varied and beautiful scenery. We typically achieve over 95% success on our climbs.

Machame Route – One of most and popular featured routes
Taken as a six night climb Machame is probably the most scenic and beautiful route up Kilimanjaro, particularly the traverse below the Western Breach. Few people climb by this route affording greater peace and exclusivity, and comfortable private tented camps are set up by your climbing team at each campsite. The final ascent is via Stella Point, the shorter of the routes to Uhuru Peak, which allows our clients a greater chance of success. Rates 1250 Joining and Private 1350US$ per person

Lemosho Route – One of Most recommended featured routes
One of the longer routes with eight nights on Kilimanjaro, the Lemosho Route offers a very good chance of success since your body gets a lot of time to acclimatise to the altitude. Even quieter than the Machame Route, this route also uses private tented camps that are set up by the climbing team every day, and ascends via Stella Point. This route has the highest success rate of all thanks to spending the most days on the climb. Rates 1700US$ per person

Marangu Route.One of the easiest and advised for young and Elderly
Although this is the shortest, least expensive route up Kilimanjaro with sleeping huts at every campsite, it is the busiest and most developed route with the hardest final climb via Gilman’s Point. Limited time for altitude acclimatisation can mean a lower chance of success.Rates 1250 Joining and Private 1350US$ per person

Rongai Route - One of the best for fit and all seasons trekking route
This route is logistically awkward, starting on the northern, Kenyan, side of Kilimanjaro. It is a steep climb for the first couple of days, with little in the way of attractive scenery. The final climb is via Gillman’s Point and the descent is by the Marangu route, making it a relatively hard and busy route. Rates 1350US$ per person

Umbwe Route - For ultimate climbers and challengers to trekking
This route is one of the shorter but more difficult routes to reach Uhuru peak, with a particularly hard first day’s climb. There is also little in the way of scenery when compared to the Machame and Lemosho routes, and you do not see much of Kilimanjaro itself. Rates 1510US$ per person

Mweka Route
The Mweka route is used as a descent from Kilimanjaro only.

Climbing Kilimanjaro - Fitness
To climb Kilimanjaro you need to be able to walk significant distances at altitude over several days – the detailed climb descriptions for the Machame and Lemosho Routes will give you the lengths of each day’s walk. Physical fitness is only part of the ‘Kilimanjaro test’; determination and self discipline are equally important to enable you to reach the summit, as the altitude is felt by everyone whether they are fit or not. To cope with and adjust to the altitude it is vital to walk or climb as slowly as you can, and take your time to enjoy the flora, fauna and scenery as you go.

We recommend that in most cases you will need to do some training before arriving in Tanzania including practicing with the kit you aim to use on the climb and ensuring that your footwear is comfortable and does not rub.

Climbing Kilimanjaro - Seasons
East Africa’s rainy seasons typically fall in April, May and November. Whilst it is possible to climb Mount Kilimanjaro almost year round, the weather conditions can make a big difference to your experience – notably the level of comfort and success rates.

Climbing Kilimanjaro - Climb planning Tips

  • Pack your essential climb items (down jacket, walking boots etc) in your hand luggage as if your hold luggage gets lost your climb won’t be unable to commence
  • Take sweets; great for sustaining sugar levels on long climbing days and for sharing with your fellow climbers and crew
  • Walk as slowly as you can on the way up Kilimanjaro to minimize the effects of altitude, allow the body to adjust, and get the most out of the fascinating changing flora and fauna, and the stunning scenery.
  • Drink plenty on Kilimanjaro, even when not thirsty, and have target levels that you must have in terms of number of litres to keep hydrated. An integrated water carrier system (camelback or similar) is good for this.
  • Eat plenty during the climb even when you are not hungry, to keep energy levels up to help with the cold and altitude
  • Take flavoured cordial or fruit squash to mix with the water while climbing to disguise the water purification tablet taste
  • Take antibacterial hand gel
  • Take cash for tipping your crew on the last day with you up Kilimanjaro
