Who Should Climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

Safari Enquiry

Climbing Kilimanjaro is an activity suited to relatively fit and adventurous travelers. The round trip takes five to 11 days, depending on the route.

Trekking Mount Kilimanjaro

It involves long days hiking on steep footpaths at high altitudes and sleeping in subzero conditions under canvas or in simple mountain huts.

Solo travelers, couples, families, and groups of friends all regularly tackle the ascent of Kilimanjaro, and the cost per person tends to become significantly cheaper as the group size increases.

While climbing Kilimanjaro is not what most people would regard as a romantic activity, the view of the magnificent snow-capped peak from one of the exclusive bush camps in Amboseli National Park (Kenya) or West Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) is truly magical.
