Climb the Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 meters) in Tanzania with Ajabu Adventures, which is often called the “Rooftop of Africa”. The snowed top of Mount Kilimanjaro reaches far above the northern plateau and hills of Tanzania. At clear weather you will be witnessing an amazing spectacle. Mount Kilimanjaro is located close to the city of Moshi and it is protected area. The landscape is as beautiful as varied.
On the lower slopes you will find agricultural lands where coffee, bananas, cassava and maize are grown for subsistence and cash sale. A few larger coffee farms still exist on the lower slopes, but much of the area outside the National Park has been subdivided into small farms.
Once inside the park, the thick lowland forest covers the lower altitudes and breaks into alpine area once the air begins to thin. Near the peak the landscape is harsh and barren, dominated by rocks and ice. It is one of the world’s most accessible high summits, a beacon for visitors from around the world. Most climbers reach the crater rim with little more than a walking stick, protective clothing and determination. And those who reach Uhuru Peak, the actual summit, will be rewarded with a climbing certificate. Reaching the “Rooftop of Africa” with Ajabu Adventures is an experience of a lifetime. Everybody with a good health condition, experienced or not, can reach the snowed peak.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro
Minimum age of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is 10 years.
Ajabu Adventures offers a medical check-up during the climb twice a day, if necessary more often. The porters carry oxygen bottles and our guides are trained how to deal with altitude sickness.
The routes offered by Ajabu Adventures are:
• Marangu (5- or 6-dagse route), Coca-Cola route – overnight in huts.
• Machame (6- or 7-day route), Whiskey route – beautiful scenery – overnight in tents.
• Lemosho (7-, 8- or 9-day route), beautiful scenery, longer distance – overnight in tents.
• Rongai (5-, 6- or 7-day route), less diverse landscape, from Kibo Hut back via Marangu route – overnight in tents.
The 9-day Lemosho route has an extra day for an overnight stay in the Crater at Crater Camp. It is a serious challenge and should only be done by climbers who are well acclimatized.
