Mountain Climbing Trips
This route is quite popular and is considered to be one of the easiest routes up Kilimanjaro. It is the only route on the north side of the mountain at Rongai, a small village close to the Kenya border. It is drier on this side of the mountain and there are spectacular sweeping views over the flat Maasai lands below. Overnights are spent camping in tents. The summit is reached via the eastern side of Kibo and the descent is on the Marangu route.
The most scenic route up Mount Kilimanjaro, the Machame route is normally done in a minimum of 6 days / 5nights on the mountain. It is a more demanding but much quieter route whose highlights are the Shira Plateau, Barranco wall and the Karanga Valley reaching the summit via Stella Point. Because this route is more taxing it is recommended that trekkers should be physically fit and with the additional day on trek to assist with acclimatisation there is a good chance of reaching the summit.
Overnights are spent camping in tents which are carried and pitched by the accompanying porters.
The most popular route up the mountain, the Marangu or coca cola route is followed by most of the climbers. It has a well defined path where obstacles have been modified to make them ‘climber friendly’. Despite the human traffic this is a very scenic route with good views of Mawenzi and excellent prospects for viewing wildlife. Accommodation on this route is in purpose built mountain huts providing adequate shelter and even bottled water, beer and soft drinks.
This route gives climbers the opportunity to experience all the contrasting scenery of Mt. Kenya. It is a beautiful blend of all our itineraries, taking advantage of the best aspects of the three main approach routes to the peak area namely, Naro Moru, Sirimon and Chogoria. Our trek starts from Naro Moru River Lodge.
This climb is for those Mountaineers who have an adventurous spirit and want to ascend to Pt. Lenana (4,985m) in a leisurely fashion, from a non-tourist route. The climber has a better chance of acclimatizing and getting fit for the attempt on Pt. Lenana.
