6 Days Mt Kilimanjaro Climbing Via Umbwe Route

  • Destination: Mt Kiliminjaro
  • Duration: 6 days

Ever stood on the top floor of skyscraper and thought, “Bah, this ain’t so tall”? Then you might just be Kilimanjaro material.

Join us as we walk in the bootprints of famed explorers and mountaineers on our way to the top of Africa’s tallest peak, hiking through lush rainforests and alpine deserts, across glaciers by day and sleeping closer to the stars than you ever dreamed possible by night. Over 1,500 trekkers make the ascent with us each year, and we’d love to help you to the top, too.
