Mountain Climbing

Mountain Climbing

If you love mountain climbing, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Mt. Kenya in Kenya are the two highest peaks in Africa. Mount Kilimanjaro, the glacier-capped “Shining Mountain” which rises from the clouds, 5895 meters above the rolling plains of northern Tanzania. It is the highest stand-alone mountain in the world and must not be underestimated. Although there are a number of trails up the mountain, representing different levels of ability and endurance, it is a grueling undertaking, and can pose a very real risk to life. You do not need specialized mountain climbing skills nor mountaineering equipment on this challenging vacation on Africa’s highest peak, but you will need the skills of an experienced support team. It is for these reasons we only offer the Machame and Marangu routes.


Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain, like Kilimanjaro, it is an extinct volcano. It is almost 700 meters short of Kilimanjaro and can be used as an acclimatizing introduction before going on the tackle of the real giant. But it poses challenges of its own. Only one of its three peaks is accessible without real mountain climbing skills and specialist climbing guides. It is for these reasons we only offer the Sirimon route.

Mt. Kilimanjaro – Marangu

The Marangu route is known as the Coca Cola route and is the oldest and most established route on Kilimanjaro. It is the only path with hut accommodations. Marangu is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path.

The Machame route is the most popular path. It is also known as the Whiskey route, given its reputation for being a tough climb with its steep trails and long distances while sleeping in tents.
