Mount Kilimanjaro

General Information

Mount Kilimanjaro
Zara in conjunction with EWP offer year round trips to Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Marangu Route involves walking on gentle forest and moorland paths up to 4700m. Above, scree leads to Gillman's Point on the often snowy crater rim which is followed to Uhuru Peak. Accommodation is in huts.

The Machame and Umbwe Routes are tougher. Steep forest paths, easy scrambling and airy ridges lead to the final screes and hence the crater. Nights are spent in tents. The Mweka Route is generally used to descend after either of the last two routes. The Shira, Nanjara and Oloitokitok Routes are more remote but can be organised by us. The remote Lemosho Glades Route , is particularly beautiful and goes through one of the few areas on Kilimanjaro that is rich in game.

We can organise trips at any time of year for any size of group based at the Springlands Hotel near Moshi. We also offer several scheduled trips which combine the ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro with that of Mount Kenya or Mount Meru and safari in Tanzania.

All our trips in Tanzania adhere to our Responsible Travel and Ecotourism policies.
