As the world's tallest freestanding mountain at 5,985m, it is hardly surprising that trekking holidays to the magnificent Kilimanjaro summit are in demand. A Kilimanjaro trek offers sweeping views of two of the world's most spectacular nations, Tanzania and Kenya. You have four routes to choose from on one of our trekking holiday to Kilimanjaro, each offering something different and unique.
Rongai route – quieter, more gradual, off the beaten track, perfect for beginners with possible safari sightings
Marangu route – the classic route, more straightforward with easier walking through numerous eco-systems
See trip itinerary Please note there are no October 2012 departures available for this route
Machame route – steeper ascents, scrambling, most challenging route best for experienced trekkers, with views of Kibo Peak
Lemosho route – scenic, longer route with more time to acclimatise and better chances of summitting

"This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, I can’t breathe, there is no oxygen, its step and hard climbing, there are clothes in the rocks ripped from peoples bodies, 3hrs in I panic. In true Danielle style sit on a rock and tell everyone to go on without me – of course that’s not an option as our guide expertly takes my hand, calms me down and leads me up the mountain, it sounds stupid, but just having someone hold you hand makes all the difference, you don’t feel alone anymore and the air returns to your lungs." Danielle Dunbar, 2009
