Tanzania is home to the highest mountain in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 metres), which is also the highest free-standing
mountain in the world. Despite its height Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s most accessible high summits, with most climbers
reaching the peak (Uhuru Peak) with little more than a walking stick, proper clothing and determination
The ascent of Kilimanjaro can be done from six routes: Mweka, Umbwe, Shira, Rongai, Machame, and the Marangu Route which is the
easier one. Depending on which route one wants to take, the climb of Kilimanjaro can take between four to six nights on the mountain.
The two most popular routes are Marangu and Machame. On the Marangu Route, accommodation is in alpine huts while on Machame Route it
is camping throughout. While expert guides and porters will accompany you on your climb, no technical equipment is required on these routes.
