Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is on many a bucket list, however we haven't yet had a chance to explore all the routes to the summit so we don't offer multi-day guided ascents of the mountain. However, for a flavour of Kilimanjaro, how about adding a day hike to your safari itinerary? Kili, which is the highest mountain in Africa at 5,985m, can take around a week to climb to the summit, but if you head to the less visited western side of the mountain you can do a one-day excursion, which incorporates some hiking on the high moorland.
What to expect on a hike on Mount Kilimanjaro From your accommodation in Moshi, depart with your guide after an early breakfast for the drive to Kilimanjaro National Park. Depending on the location of your hotel, the journey will take 1 hours.

If you are only in Tanzania for a short amount of time, or are not quite ready to tackle the summit of Africa's largest mountain, then We can arrange for you to do the first day of the hike up Mt Kilimanjaro. After reaching the gates at Marangu, you will hike for approximately 3-4 hours to the first camp, 2,700 meters from the base of the mountain.
