Elevation: 5895 meters (19340 feet)
Please note all costs for this expedition quoted in USD$
Standing Astride the equator, yet permanently snow-capped, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's rooftop and the world's highest freestanding mountain. Surrounded by some of the world's greatest game reserves, Kilimanjaro towers above these hot, fertile plains like a massive sentinel, beckoning adventurers to climb her.
Many travellers are attracted to her highest point-Uhuru Peak on Kibo - which can be reached by several easy walking or scrambling tracks. The two main summits of Kilimanjaro: craggy Mawenzi, 5149m, and 'flat-altitude, semi-desert. Kilimanjaro possesses a whole range of environments including the summit glaciers, screes, cliffs, afro-alpine moorland then forests, which lead down to cultivated foothills.
PNG Trekking Adventures takes the Lemosho and Crater Camp Track. The Lemosho Track is an unspoilt, remote, little used and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau. The Lemosho Glades are rich in buffalo, elephant and other big game animals. We choose to reach the summit via the Arrow Glacier route, also referred to as the Western Breach approach. This route includes camping at Arrow Glacier and the Crater camp before a short 2 hour climb to the summit. The overnight camping at and the climb from Arrow Glazier to the Crater camp is often referred to as dangerous due to glacial rock movement. It is not uncommon to hear rock falls during the night and to experience loose rock and melting ice on the ascent to the crater camp. The path is directly up a rocky amphitheatre and often requires strenuous scrambling over steep rock. It is not technical but definitely requires more fitness and strength than the standard routes up Mt Kilimanjaro.
Our guides are extremely experienced and are among only a few who are confident to use this route.
Follow up your Kilimanjaro Summit and take a Masai Mara Safari, followed by trekking up to see the Silverback Gorilla's in Rwanda.
Friends and family that may not wish to climb the mountain but would like to do the Safari or Gorilla's we can organise for them to come across to Moshi in Tanzania a couple of days prior to the climb finishing. We can transport them out to the gates of Kilimanjaro to be there when the group comes off the mountain.
