Mount Kilimanjaro is a massive volcano with three primary peaks - Shira, Kibo and Mawenzi. Kibo is the highest of the three and there are several different routes to get up the highest point - Uhuru Peak. I summited via the Machame Route on a 6-day trek (4.5 days up and 1.5 days down) and enjoyed the challenge, as well... More

Kibo means Marvelous. It's the hight summit and crater of Kilimanjaro. A climbing there it's a personal challenge. But It really worths. With the right company you can spend 7 days in Kilimanjaro with all the support. Landscapes that you would just see in pictures, you can see so close when climbing by Machame Route. The forest, the alpine desert,... More

What an experience. Real professionals. We had two experienced guides, a medical doctor, and about 65 porters for 20 Walkers. We all made it to the top , which we would not have done without such a professional team behind us. The most challenging experience, physically, emotionally and mentally that I have done, but so worth it! Add it to... More

Summiting in the middle of the night is difficult, but worth it. Marangu Hotel staff are the greatest outfitters to help you climb Kili. No one comes close to their professionalism and how comfortable and safe you feel when climbing with them.

I climbed Mt Kilimanjaro via the Machame Route August 16-22, 2013 We summited on the full moon August 21. Climbing Kilimanjaro was my #1 on my bucket list and has been my dream for the past 5 years. For so many personal reasons, successfully climbing it has been one of my biggest accomplishments. It was also the HARDEST thing I... More

Mount Kilimanjaro climb was an experience that I would definitely wouldn't forget. If you want a truly amazing trip, you should try it. You will see amazing landscapes with stunning sunsets and sunrises. The team from http://www.kilimanjarotours.co.uk/ offered me the challenge of a lifetime , it was surreal. Be aware that acclimatisation is essential, you could suffer seriously shortage of... More

This is realy one truly amazing place. It is of course an ancient crater so was subject to volcanic activity many moons ago, it has an almost ethereal other-worldy feel to it at times. The landscape is stark here but I found the sunsets and sunrises to be particularly amazing and colourful affairs, a mug of tea and an amazing... More
