The Northern Circuit route is one of the best routes on Kilimanjaro, offering nearly 360 degrees of beautiful scenery including the quiet, rarely visited northern slopes. As the longest route on Kilimanjaro, the Northern Circuit also has the most acclimatization time and the highest summit success rate. Thus, the Northern Circuit route is highly recommended.

The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the rainforest to Shira Ridge, before crossing the Shira Plateau. The route then heads north and circles clockwise from Moir Hut to Buffalo Camp to School Hut, before summiting from the east. Descend is made via the Mweka route.

NB: With small Additional cost we can book for you accommodation before or/and after summiting Mount Kilimanjaro.

Dahlia Africa - Amazing!!!

“Dahlia Africa suggested this route to us as it is 9 days which minimizes your risk of altitude sickness due to more acclimatization time. At many points we felt as though we were the only people on the mountain due to the route being a less commonly used one. Dahlia Africa were faultless from beginning to end, our guides Linus and Brian were extremely knowledgeable and motivational, keeping our spirits high at some of the trickier points of the track. The food cooked for us by Asha, the chef, was always delicious and she always ensured we were happy with what was on the menu so we were getting enough food to keep us going.”
Absolutely loved every minute of it!

“Our experience with Dahlia Africa Kilimanjaro Team was wonderful. My wife and I hiked the Mount Kilimanjaro this February. They sent pre-hike information to help condition us for the hike and tell us the equipment we needed. We met the owner Brian and our guide Faza the day before we started. They checked our equipment and explained how the next 9days Northern circuit route would roll out climbing. Faza was a terrific guide having hiked the Mount Kilimanjaro over 100times. He made our experience fun and informative with his knowledge of the Kilimanjaro, pointing out names of rock formations and plants native to the area. He also told us some history of the Kilimanjaro! I highly, highly recommend them for any trip to Kilimanjaro or for that matter any hike on their website you would like to take.”
A Grand 9Days Kilimanjaro Adventure with Dahlia:

“Our only ladies group from Germany trekking Kilimanjaro 9Days Northern route with Dahlia was the experience of a lifetime. As a beginner hiker but masters adventurers, I wanted to hike camp to camp very fast than anyone to celebrate a major birthday 45th with my two sisters. Dahlia tours planned and prepared a fantastic experience for us. Before the trip, they explained the itinerary and sent detailed information about what to pack and what to expect in Tanzania and especially Kilimanjaro. Catherine, our tour advisor sent an email to each person welcoming us and sharing her personal thoughts and recommendations about the hike. The guide Samwell patiently took care of all of our needs and answered every question along the trail. I will, "trust my boots" more in the future because of Samwell he perfectly timed our treks so well, our porters and chef made delicious meals each day we even had pizza on the mountain! The gear that Dahlia tours provides is in excellent condition and easy to use. The drive to and from the Climbing gate was a bonus as both drivers were well versed in particular Tanzania and were happy to share their experiences. I highly recommend this hike to fully experience the Mount Kilimanjaro.”
