Kibo certainly is "must do" and so much more than just ticking the box and reaching the summit. The journey is its own reward - all the preparations and excitement upfront, making friends with your guides and fellow hikers, the singing of the porters, the simple lifestyle away from civilisation... However, I found organising my climb a really time-consuming process... More

Summit at dawn of the sixth day. Wonderful. We have done tour de mont blanc and iceland etc so competent walkers but not used to... More

The Kibo summit is the best preserved crater on the mountain; its southern lip is slightly higher than the rest of the rim, and the highest point on this southern lip is known as Uhuru Peak. At 5895m, this is highest point in Africa and the goal of just about every Kilimanjaro trekker. Kibo is also the only one of... More

I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (with the help of our guides, porters and cook) in February, 2016 from 8 days Lemosho Route. Lemosho route is superb, it provides all sorts of terrain starting in rain forest and as it joins Machame route it becomes dry and rocky. Overall I would say it is easy to climb for a mountaineer and might... More

Summary of day 1 and 2, more to follow shortly Day 1: From the gate the trail into the rain forest immediately went up a steep hill, fortunately the trail became gradual quickly after the first bit of elevation. Our experienced ClimbKili guides immediately set an easy slow pace for us. We learned "pole, pole" which means slowly, slowly. This... More
