Our Kilimanjaro trek ascends the Machame Route, which approaches Kilimanjaro through the forest and moorlands from the southwest side of the mountain. The rainforest is beautiful and there is a tangible sense of wilderness once we reach higher elevations. The views of neighboring Mount Meru floating on the clouds are simply unforgettable. We make our final ascent by the Barafu route, departing for the summit from the camp for which the route is named.
We are happy to add a safari to any Kilimanjaro trek! Anything from a 3 to 9 day Safari including Tarangire National Park, the N’Gorongoro Crate, Lake Manyara National Park, and the Serengeti. Inquire for details about an add-on custom luxury Safari.
Mountain Trip offers a seven day Kilimanjaro trek itinerary, designed to allow climbers a bit more time time to acclimatize, which makes the summit push safer and much more enjoyable and also gives us plenty of time to revel in the magnificent scenery of Africa. You’ll find shorter trips offered by other outfitters, but we firmly believe that building a base of acclimatization makes for a much better experience.
