Ascend Kilimanjaro
 
Does your family fancy a real challenge? How about spending a week ascending the 19,340 foot volcanic Mount Kilimanjaro? As with our safaris, we like to take you away from the crowds and off the well-trodden track. Talk to Ross Cambray about the best route for your family and we’ll arrange a private fully supported ascent with expert guides and porters. You need to allow about a week for this amazing adventure.

A lot of people ascend Kilimanjaro and most of them take one route which can get busy. Far better in our view to take one of the other seven or eight routes each of which has its attractions and challenges. We provide your own support team of guides and porters so you can ascend at your own pace and take time to admire the wildlife, glaciers and amazing views as you go. Each day the porters will trot on ahead of you, setting up comfortable camp in a beautiful spot and preparing delicious hearty meals for when you walk into camp.

Each route has its special appeal: Rongai is the only one which takes the northern, Kenyan side and is a good one for seeing wildlife and tends to have less rainfall. Lemosho is one of the newest routes, taking in the western side of the mountain with wild scenery and a great chance of seeing elephant and buffalo at the lower levels. You might think that a week is a long time to spend on the ascent but this allows gradual acclimatisation to altitude giving you the best chance of reaching the summit. Also, feeling better you can enjoy the experience and the views rather than feeling that you are on a gruelling mission!

Most of the routes are treks and require no mountaineering experience. The push to the summit usually begins in the middle of the night so you are there to enjoy the sunrise before descending in just a day – a whole lot quicker than you went up.
