EPIC Mt Kilimanjaro

The world’s tallest free-standing mountain

Epic Mt Kilimanjaro Journeys

Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free-standing mountain at 5895 metres (19,354 feet) and one of the “Seven Summits”. There are numerous routes up the mountain of varying duration. We always favour the longest routes to enable sufficient acclimatisation to altitude to maximise summit success and reduce the risk of medical complications. To that end our favoured route is the Lemosho Route which is conducted over 7 nights and 8 days.

All of our climbs are tailored to a luxury specification and supported by a full complement of mountain guides, camp staff and porters. Our guides are the most experienced on the mountain.

Kilimanjaro can be climbed throughout the year but the rainy seasons are best avoided (mid-March to mid- June and late October through mid-December.)

Of course, a climb of Kili also provides an opportunity for an African safari thereafter, given its proximity to iconic game parks like Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, also in Tanzania. At a minimum it is worth considering 3 to 4 nights in the Serengeti to take in the migration.

To summit Mount Kilimanjaro on a breathless, blue sky dawn is surely one of life’s great experiences.
