Choosing the Best Route

When selecting the perfect route to climb Kilimanjaro, consider several key factors. First decide on the desired length of your climb and decide if you want to take advantage of our FREE 2-day Lodge Safari. Take into account the acclimatization opportunities each route offers. The longer the route, the better you acclimatize to the high altitude. Also factor in your budget, as this will determine the length of your route. And also, consult with our Kilimanjaro experts to find the route best suited to your needs. By carefully considering these aspects, you can choose the ideal route that suits your abilities and maximizes your chances of summiting Africa’s iconic peak.
