  • You've heard of the mountain, you probably know someone that's climbed it... How about reaching the summit of Africa yourself?

    -----------------------------------------------------

    The Mountain and the Route

    At 5,895m, The peak of Kilimanjaro is the highest point on the Africa continent and is the highest free-standing volcano in the world.

    There are many different routes used to reach the summit and we have chosen one that provides the group with the greatest chance of successfully summiting this wonderful lump of rock.

    The route chosen is The Machame Route.  This is a hiking route and not a technical climbing route.  The hiking is easy and on defined trails with the distances covered each day as follows:

    • Day 1:  9km (4-6 hours)

    • Day 2:  9km (4-6 hours)

    • Day 3:  15km (6-8 hours)

    • Day 4:  5km (4-5 hours)

    • Day 5:  4km (3-4 hours)

    • Day 6 (summit day):  7km then 12km (12-14 hours)

    • Day 7:  10km (4-5 hours)

    As you can see, the pace will be very slow and the distances very manageable, with a final push for the summit being the typically longest day

    The main challenge on this trip is dealing with the altitude of this big mountain, plus the ability to hike for 7-days in a row, without showers (that's what wet wipes are for!) and sleeping in tents

    We have chosen the Machame Route to provide you with the best opportunity possible to acclimatise in order to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro!!

    The Detail

    The cost of the trip is just £2,650 and includes:

    - Flights

    - Transfers

    - Hotel accommodation for one-night night before, and one-night after, the hike

    - 7-days fully supported Kilimanjaro hike (including local guide, team cook and a porter team that will carry all but your light day-pack for the entire trip)

    - All food on the mountain

    - Fully supported training plan (I am an experienced high altitude/big mountain mountaineer and can tailor specific training programmes to suit your own needs, taking into account your busy day-to-day schedules)

    - 15% discount on all City Mountaineering weekend mountain trips, to enable a cost effective training programme* (note:  trips to the UK mountains as training are highly advised, but not compulsory)
