Why is the tour 15 days if the trek up Kilimanjaro is only 7 days?
A 15-day tour ensures you have enough time to arrive safely, hire your trekking gear and settle in before hitting the mountain. It also allows you to immerse in the local culture and to relax a little before you head home. Most importantly, it ensures you have enough time to acclimatise when trekking Kilimanjaro so you are safe.
