Incredible experience!! Reviewed Tour: Five-Day Kilimanjaro Climb: Marangu Route
5 - Excellent
  • Carlos
  • From Mexico
“I NEVER in a million years thought I would be able to make it to the Peak. This was our FIRST hiking trip of any kind and we thought we'd "give it a try".... the Kilisa team were FANTASTIC ! Rama and his team checked in with us the day before to run us past a day by day itinerary, ensure we had all the necessary equipment (we didn't), and obtained what was missing. Throughout our hike and especially making up the Peak, he kept checking our physical conditions and mental motivation. On the ascent day, he made sure we kept busy and distracted to forget how incredibly hard it was climbing that last leg of the route... and it worked! We reached UHURU Peak and the feeling is incredible !! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE IN KILISA!”

“I hiked the Lemosho Route with friends in Mid-January 2020. This route was perfect for us because we had a mixture of beginner hikers and more advanced hikers in our group. The route was beautiful and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for great scenery while on the mountain.PROS:- The guides and team of Kopa Tours were great! Our guides were constantly checking on us and talking with us as we climbed the mountain over 8 days. It made the beginners in our party feel very comfortable.- The Lemosho Route was a wonderful route to take, I'm glad we chose this route.CONS:- There are a lot of soups served, make sure to bring some crunchy snacks (I would have killed for some Cheetos).- Going in January, there wasn't much cloud cover. I didn't pack my hat and had to wear extra sunscreen.Overall, it was a great trip!”

“Machame Route was a challenging but rewarding hike. My guides helped me feel safe and have fun on the mountain. In addition, masks were worn and social distancing precautions were taken. It was a blast and got some great photos of me in the snow on Uhuru Peak!”

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!
