On the top of Kilimanjaro Reviewed Tour: Mt. Kilimanjaro - Lemosho route, 8 days

  • Mansur Aglyamov

“I climbed on the "Roof of Africa" with Altezza Travel. I spent a month looking for the best company and found Altezza Travel to satisfy all my criteria. I'm so glad that I've chosen them. They are really the number one company in Tanzania. They provided excellent service, starting from initial communication, support in preparation for the trip and summit itself. All our team, five members including a 61-year-old man, successfully made it to the top! After Kilimanjaro I also traveled to a couple of Tanzanian national parks with Altezza. Everything was great. Highly recommended!”

“Altezza was a great price and the porters and guides were AMAZING. The accommodations both on and off the mountain were better than I expected and the lodges and Altezza hotel were especially nice. All of the food was great and my gluten allergy was easily addressed ahead of time. The convenience of how Altezza office staff set up everything for us in advance made everything hassle-free. Both my friend and I summited Kilimanjaro and we would not have been able to do so without the support of both of our guides and porters. The safaris were beautiful and we saw Tanzania's Big Five EASILY. I highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to climb Kilimanjaro, do adventure or sightseeing hikes, or who just might want only a safari. I am already planning on utilizing Altezza Travel next June for when I hopefully return to Kilimanjaro with more friends and to also ascend Mount Meru. I highly recommend our guide, Baraka Ayo!! He was VERY professional, met our needs, any concerns we might have had, were immediately addressed, not that I had any anyway, and he coordinated every day of our six-night trek perfectly! Thank you.”
Amazing experience with Altezza team Reviewed Tour: Mt. Kilimanjaro - Lemosho route, 8 days

“Just returned home from Tanzania. Choosing Altezza Travel for organising my climb was a great decision. Everything was perfect! Managers were reachable literally 24/7, the equipment I rent from Altezza shop was clean and in a good condition, the hotel before and after the climb was located in a really nice area where monkeys are literally jumping from tree to tree right next to you while you are having lunch.The route I climb via was Lemosho 8 days. I decided to do it on my own just because I felt like I needed some piece and quiet from my daily life and working routine. When I was told that the supporting group consists of 9 people I wasnt really happy about it and didnt understand why on earth we needed that amount of people. But when I started my climb I realised how wrong I was. First of all, it was basically just me and a guide. I almost did not see porters while trekking from one camp to another. They were going far ahead from me, and once I reached the camp, everything was already set up like tents, dinning tables, food Oh God, the food was amazing! They even cooked pizza once. Honestly, I was really surprised by the variety of food they offered up in the mountains. Sometimes it was pretty cold in the evenings, but a sleeping bag I rented was warm, plus I was given a heating pad, which really helped me to survive the nights! The most difficult part was the summiting night. I didnt sleep well and on my half way to the top I was so cold and tired that I asked my guide if we could return back to the camp. But big thanks to him and his motivational and cheerful speeches, which made me continue my climb and reach the highest point of Africa. It is important to highlight the fact, that your health is being checked twice per day. The guide even had some special medical card where he wrote down all information about my physical condition etc. And do not bother yourself taking such tablets as Diamox and Aquaguard, because they have everything in their aid medical kit.The guide deserves a special mention. What an amazing and interesting man! My plan of being all alone for 7 days vanished into thin air as soon as I started a conversation with my guide. I will never forget these long walks we spent together, sharing lots of life stories. I learned so much about what it is like to be a Tanzanian citizens and to climb Kilimanjaro few times per month. Tanzanian people are something unique. They are so kind and apprehensive. My guide could actually feel when I wasnt in the mood for communicating (even my wife still cannot do that) and just followed me in a complete silence when it was needed.My biggest regret was not combining my climb with a safari tour, because at the end of my trip I didnt want to leave Tanzania at all. There are so many interesting places to see and things to learn about the culture, that one week is extremely little time to do that. So if you are planning to spend your next vacation in Tanzania, make sure you take at least 2 weeks off and book both Kilimanjaro climb and safari. I can assure that with Altezza Team organising your holiday you will get the most of your trip to Africa!”

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - Overview

With its 5,895 meters Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and the world's highest free-standing mountain. The first recorded ascend of Mt Kilimanjaro was in 1889 by the two climbers Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller.

Mount Kilimanjaro is located within Kilimanjaro National Park giving climbers an opportunity to spot wildlife during primarily the first day of your Kilimanjaro trek.

There are primarily four popular routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro:

  1. Marangu Route - also known as the Coca Cola route because of its availability of cokes in the tea huts
  2. Machame Route - the second most popular route on the mountain after the Marangu Route
  3. Lemosho Route - known for its beauty and relatively few people
  4. Rongai Route - the only route that starts from the Northern side of the mountain, known for giving good opportunitues to spot wildlife during the first couple of days on the climb

The Marangu Route should be the easiest of the above four routes. Despite hereof the success rate is often higher on the Machame Route, probably because people taking that route are more prepared.

Other less popular routes available for climbing Kilimanjaro are:

  1. The Northern Circuit Route
  2. The Umbwe Route

Best Months to Climb Kilimanjaro

Jan to Feb and July to October are some of the best months to climb Kilimanjaro. The worst months are April, May and November due to a high level of precipitation. That said, due to the generally friendly climate it is indeed possible to climb Kilimanjaro all year round.

Safety

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is not dangerous, however, precautions certainly have to be taken as otherwise it may become dangerous. Please always follow the below recommendations when climbing Kilimanjaro:

  1. We always recommend to climb the mountain in 7 days, as proper acclimatization is needed. Even if having chosen a 7 days climb you may still, for some reason, acquire altitude sickness. Therefore, please do familiaries yourself with how to treat and prevent altitude illness prior to commencing the climb.
  2. Assess your climbing guide and porters before taking off. They have to appear professional and friendly and also posses the required knowledge and Kilimanjaro climbing experience.
  3. There are a lot of fraud climbing companies present in Tanzania who do not have the required climbing permits and licenses. Please therefore only book with a company that have all the required authoritizations (in this regard it ought to be mentioned that Bookmundi only works with licensed companies that have all the necessary permits).

We wish you a fantastic climbing experience on Mount Kilimanjaro!

Bon Voyage!
