Whilst Rainbow Mountain is undeniably a wonder of nature, its colourful appearance was actually exposed to the human eye because of climate change.
Despite its impressive height, you don’t have to be a highly trained and experienced hiker to scale Mount Kilimanjaro due to the accessibility of its numerous trails and lack of technical skill required to follow them.
However, this once in a lifetime experience does require planning, equipment and knowledge, and therefore you may prefer to go through an experienced tour operator rather than arrange everything yourself.
Africa's highest mountain is also the world's tallest freestanding. The snow capped summit stands above the Savannah in a surreal dichotomy of icy jagged edges and large arid planes.
This 15-day adventure has it all. The seven day climb, as well as five days in Serengeti in a remote village with the Masai. This tour really can be life changing.
Yes you will most likely need visa and vaccinations. Vaccinations should include Hep A, Hep B, rabies, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, typhoid, and yellow fever.
It's not a particularly dangerous climb, but we still encourage you to take out insurance, even rolling your ankle can be a costly accident in overseas hospitals.
A steady base level fitness is required but you by no means have to be an athlete. You should do lots of walking before arriving, preferably on uneven terrain and uphill.
You will be given a brief and safety protocols upon arrival. You'll also be given an additional "acclimatisation day" during ascent.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish.
