Kilimanjaro Travel

Mt. Kilimanjaro Travel! The very name strikes a distant chord of fascination, of adulation, of intimidation. Suddenly the image of a dormant volcano standing proudly at 5,895 m, towering over Tanzania runs in our mind.

Popularly referred to as “Every men’s Everest”, this tallest free-standing peak is bestowed with a diverse range of flora and fauna along with five distinct climate zones experienced on a single Kilimanjaro Hike.

At a staggering altitude of 5,895m, the Kilimanjaro Summit is adorned with screes and is covered with glaciers. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro will be a challenging task. You need to show a lot of endurance determination and mental stamina to conquer the converted Uhuru Peak.

Jerry Tanzania Tours undertakes four famous routes for Kilimanjaro Climb - Rongai route, Lemosho route, Northern Circuit route, Machame route. But we propose the Rongai route because this is the only route approaching Kilimanjaro from the north and is also close to the border of Kenya.

Kilimanjaro Travels Overview

  • Kilimanjaro Climb, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, taking the Rongai route.
  • Gaze at the stars from what would feel like an almost touching distance during a night camping below the summit.
  • Experience five distinct Kilimanjaro Climate Zones as you trek through rainforests, heather moors, lava formations, and glaciers.
  • Savoir the unique flora and fauna of the mountain with our Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Guide.

Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing Routes

As one of the premier Mount Kilimanjaro tour operators, Jerry Tanzania Tours have regular climbs on four of the main routes:

  • Mount Kilimanjaro Hike via the Machame Route In 7 Days is our preferred route as it offers excellent acclimatization and views.
  • The Lemosho Route is the same as the Machame Route after the second camp (Shira Plateau). The only difference is it gives an extra day on the mountain.
  • The Rongai Route approaches from the north of the mountain and is a less-traveled option. It is most preferable during the rainy season as it's more sheltered.
  • The Northern Circuit Route offers a longer 9day hike to Kilimanjaro. If you have extra time on your hand then you can choose this route.
  • The Marangu Route offers a 6-day hike to Kilimanjaro is often referred to as the easiest route.
