7 Days Climbing

For conquering the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain (5.895 m) we offer you 3 routes that suit every trekkers experience and fitness.


Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route.

This route is widely considered the best route to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Relatively new, it maximizes the climber’s chances of reaching the summit with its smooth acclimatization rate, and offers a wonderful experience due to the beauty and remoteness of its different climate zones. Recommended for physically fit people with some climbing experience.
