At 5895m, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. Join us on this 8-day, guided trip and conquer the highest mountain in Africa. There are seven established routes to the top of the summit: Marangu, Machame, Lemosho, Shira, Rongai, Northern Circuit and Umbwe. At Wayfairer, we recommend the Machame and Lemosho routes.

The Machame Route offers a shorter trekking duration coupled with breathtaking views of farmlands, forests and heather moorlands. Start your trek on the second day of the tour, when you will travel from Machame Gate to Machame Camp.

The third day will take you to Shira Camp 2. Climb to Stella Point, located 5685m above sea level, on Day 6 of the trip. Be rewarded with stunning sunrise views from there before heading for Kilimanjaro Peak. Descend down to Mweka Camp on the same day and receive your climbing certificates at Mweka Gate the next day.

We will drive you from Arusha to the airport on the final day of the trip. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.
