Kilimanjaro challenges are our approach to climbing Kilimanjaro for charity. We do not offer the complicated sponsor funded climbs, just great value, tailor-made challenges so that more of the money you raise goes to charity

When to climb Kilimanjaro?
JANUARY AND MARCH: Dry and quiet
JUNE TO OCTOBER: Warm and busy
APRIL AND MAY: Wet but quite
NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER: Short rain but colder
ALL YEAR ROUND: Full Moon
Invariably the first thing people ask us when they start to plan their trip is "which is the best route to climb Kilimanjaro". While the choice is ultimately personal these are the routes we recommend For the best chance of success All the statistics from the Park Authority confirm that the Machame route has the best success rate largely because it offers great acclimatisation.
For great scenery The Lemosho route provides the best diversity of views with spectacular panorama in all directions as you ascend and cross the Shira plateau.
For a quiet trail The Rongai route approaching from the North is the quietest route but it is a long drive to the start and the success rate is lower as it offers less natural acclimatisation.
For a real challenge If you are really fit and confident about acclimatising then climbing Kilimanjaro and staying at the Crater camp is a fantastic option. It is always quiet and the views at sunset and dawn are spectacular.
_Price and How to climb Kilimanjaro The
only way to trek Kilimanjaro is through a tour operator. 5 days/ 4
nights trek up the Marangu Route will cost $1000 -$1,100. depending on
group size However, if you are not accustomed to altitude we highly
recommended you to take a 6 day/ 5 nights trip which start from $1,250,
depending on the route chosen and group size.
Routes. There are six routes officially sanctioned for climbing Kilimanjaro and two routes used for descent. These are:
Commonly called the Coca-Cola Route, because it is considered the
easiest route and vendors sell Coca-Cola at some of the huts. Marangu is
by far the most popular route to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Typical
duration is either 5 or 6 days depending upon whether you elect to spend
an extra day for acclimatization to the altitude. This is the only
route that offers huts versus tents. In spite of these, do be aware that
a faster ascent means less time for acclimatization and a lower chance
of reaching the summit and it is actually colder to stay in huts
compared to staying in tents. Day 1: Marangu Gate (1980 m) - Mandara hut (2700 m). Hiking time: 5 hours Day 2: Mandara hut (2700) - Horombo hut (3720 m). Hiking time: 6 hours Day 3: Horombo hut (3720 m) - Acclimatisation day (if necessary) Day 4: Horombo hut (3720 m) - Kibo hut (4700 m). Hiking time: 6 hours
Day 5: Kibo hut (4700m) - Uhuru Peak (5895 m) - Horombo hut (3720 m).
Hiking time: 8 hours to Uhuru - 6 hours to descend to Horombo Day 6: Horombo hut (3720 m) - Marangu Gate (1980 m). Hiking time: 6 hours
Some call this the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. Where
accommodation on the Marangu route is in huts, the Machame route offers
strictly tents only. This makes Machame (also referred to as the
"Whiskey route") better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker,
however rewarding him/her with a scenic splendor such as not seen on the
Marangu route. Day 1: Machame Gate (1490 m) - Machame camp (2980 m). Hiking time: 4-6 hours Day 2: Machame camp (2980 m) - Shira camp (3840 m). Hiking time: 6 hours Day 3: Shira (3840 m) - Lava Tower (4630 m) - Barranco camp (3950 m). Hiking time: 7 hours
Day 4: Barranco camp (3950 m) - Barafu camp (4550 m). Hiking time: 7
hours (frequently broken into 2 days) to allow for acclimatization)
Day 5: Barafu camp (4550 m)- Uhuru Peak (5895 m) - Mweka (3100 m).
Hiking time: 8 hours to reach Uhuru Peak: 7/8 hours to descend to Mweka
(frequently broken into 2 days with an overnight stay at Mweka camp)
Lemosho Route Little
used and more remote than other routes. The route is one of the few
where groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger, as
the forests around the Lemosho Glades are rich in buffalo, elephant and
other big game animals. Day 1: Londorossi Gate (2100 m) - Mti Mkubwa camp (2750 m). Hiking time: 3 hours Day 2: Mti Mkubwa camp (2750 m) - Shira 2 camp (3840 m). Hiking time: 6/7 hours Day 3: Shira (3840m) - Lava Tower (4630m) - Barranco camp (3950m). Hiking time: 7 hours Day 4: Barranco camp (3950 m) - Barafu camp (4550 m). Hiking time: 7 hours
Day 5: Barafu camp (4550 m) - Uhuru Peak (5895 m) - Mweka (3100 m).
Hiking time: 8 hours to reach Uhuru Peak 7/8 hours to descend to Mweka Day 6: Mweka camp (3100 m) - Mweka Gate (1980 m). Hiking time: 3 hours
A variation on the Lemosho Routeinserts two extra days in the itinerary for acclimatization and also to avoid having to climb up to the summit in the dark. Day
4: Barranco (3950 m) to Karranga Valley (4000 m). Hiking Time 4 hours.
This segment takes you up the infamous 'Barranco Wall.' Day 5: Karranga Valley (4000 m) to Barafu camp (4550 m). Hiking Time 3 hours Day 6: Barafu camp (4550 m) - Uhuru Peak (5895 m) - Crater Camp (5640m). Hiking Time about 8 hours Day 7: Crater Camp (5640 m) - Mweka (3100 m). Hiking time: 7/8 hours to descend.
Rongai Route The
Rongai route provides ascent up Kilimanjaro from the northeastern side
of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. Day 1: Rongai Gate (1950 m) - 1st Caves camp (2600 m). Hiking time: 5 hours Day 2: 1st Cave (2600 m) - Kikelewa Cave (3600 m). Hiking time: 6/7 hours Day 3: Kikelewa Cave (3600) - Mawenzi Tarn camp (4330 m). Hiking time: 3/4 hours Day 4: Mawenzi Tarn camp (4330m) - Kibo hut (4700 m). Hiking time: 4/5 hours
Day 5: Kibo hut (4700 m) - Uhuru Peak (5895 m) - Horombo hut (3720 m).
Hiking time: 8 hours to reach Uhuru - 6 hours to descend to Horombo Day 6: Horombo hut (3720 m) - Marangu Gate (1980 m) . Hiking time: 6 hours

choice and length of climb, but also depend on the comfort level of
service. we are a local tour operator who treat our staffs more
ethically and we employ professional guides who are trained to look

Tipping for Guides and Porters Tipping

average 1 guide, 3 porters and a cook. As a group size increases the
climbing support team increase at a similar ratio. The ratio is set by
the Kilimanjaro National Park (KINIPA) So tour operators are meant to
comply with this standard. In general, you should budget $20-$25 a day
for chief guides, $15-$20 a day for assistant guides, $15 a day for your
cook and $10 a day for each porter. Depending on the size of the
group. your total tip budget should be $250-$300.
