ITINERARIES:

7 days and 6 nights (5 days on the mountain)
Tour Name:- Popular Kilimanjaro
Route:- Marangu

KilimanjaroThe main and most popular way up. Besides the peaks and moorland, the park consists of montage forest with relics of old vegetation. Also, significant numbers of mammals, birds, and insects inhabit the area. We avoid the crowded Marangu route on Kilimanjaro, preferring to approach the mountain from the north by the lightly used Rongai route. Mammals include elephants, buffaloes, elands, duickers, foxes, leopards, baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys. The area is also frequented by a variety of colourful birds.

8 days and 7 nights (6 days on the mountain)
Tour Name:- Whisky Kilimanjaro
Route:- Machame

KilimanjaroWe recommend the Machame route for most ers, because taking an extra day during the climb allows for a slower pace, and gives hikers more time to adjust to the altitude, which reduces altitude sickness. The Machame route approaches Kilimanjaro through forest and moorland from the south - west and joins the Shira route before traversing beneath the southern ice fields of Kibo.

7 days and 6 nights (5 days on the mountain)
Tour Name:- Secluded Kilimanjaro
Route:- Rongai

KilimanjaroThe Rongai route starts just south of Kenya- Tanzania border and has been almost unused for many years because the area was considered sensitive. Now open for climbing once again, experienced guides consider this ascent route to be both easier and more beautiful than the main Marangu trail.

7 days and 6 nights (5 days on the mountain)
Tour Name:- Vertical Kilimanjaro

KilimanjaroMany customers use this route to descend instead of ascend. Either way it is after Mweka the next steepest route. It is also quite scenic and relatively infrequently used. KILELE AFRIKA organizes eco-friendly climbs on this magnificent dome-shaped mountain and boasts of an excellent safe climbing record. Our professional, experienced and highly knowledgeable guides will lead you all the way to the summit while explaining the different ecosystems of the mountain that you go through each day.
