Climbing Kilimanjaro

The highest mountain in Africa, at 5895 metres, the highest free standing mountain in the world, not conquered by a European until 1889, superlatives abound. Kilimanjaro is one of the Seven Summits, a goal for every serious climber, but also within reach of anyone who can trek.

Kili-Worldborn Safaris can guide you on all of Kilimanjaro’s Routes, including the challenging Western Breach Route, where those who are well acclimatised can even spend a night in the crater, surrounded by the towering glaciers that line its walls.

Our guides are not only trained to help you summit safely, but are also well-versed in describing what you will see as you pass through the five climatic zones on the mountain from the rain forest where you might spot the rare Black & White Colobus monkeys and the beautiful and stranger tropical flowers and plants; up to the High Desert and the snow fields of the summit region. Click on the itineraries on the right and make your choice, or e-mail us for our advice on which route will suit you.

We can also advise you on how to prepare for your climb, the equipment you will need, and also help you prepare for your climb by guiding you up Kilimanjaro’s smaller, sister mountain, Mt Meru (4,566m), which in itself is a fascinating experience.
