Reasons To Visit Mount Kilimanjaro

  1. 1. Kilimanjaro Trip<br />Where Awesomeness Knows No Limits<br />
  2. 2. About Kilimanjaro<br />The highest freestanding mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro is also the highest mountain on the African continent at 5896m. <br />Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty plains and huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit<br />
  3. 3. Reasons Why This Trip Is Awesome<br />Challenge – feeling of satisfaction from reaching the highest walk-able point on Earth<br />Amazing views of Africa throughout the trek, particularly seeing the sun-rise at the summit<br />Can also visit the nearby Safari park and see Rhino and Lions in their natural habitat<br />2012 is the perfect opportunity – no kids and not too old<br />
  4. 4. Routes<br />There are 6 main routes to choose from:<br />Marangu<br />Most popular as it is the easiest and cheapest route, <br />As a result can be very crowded<br />Takes 5 days, <br />Only route with huts to sleep in<br />Machame<br />Varied scenery, some extended steep climbs, <br />Takes 6 days<br />Rongai<br />Easy route, less crowded but more expensive<br />Takes 6/7 days<br />Umbwe<br />Difficult route with steep climbs<br />Opportunity to sleep in caves<br />Shira<br />Very scenic with opportunities to spot game and other wildlife<br />Beginning of trek starts with a drive up 4km in altitude so acclimatisation is more difficult<br />Lemosho<br />Difficult route and expensive route<br />Trek starts in rainforest<br />Take 7/8 days<br />
  5. 5. Climate<br />Highest rainfall March and early May, and November to late December<br />Jan to March is a good time as relatively dry and not too crowded<br />August to October has best conditions but as a result is peak climbing time so most crowded<br />Remember that the average temperature during the day is around 30 degrees, but towards the summary this will drop to below 0 at nights!<br />
  6. 6. How much training is needed?<br />The Marangu route is the easiest in terms of distance<br />The altitude can be difficult to acclimatise to but there are tablets to help alleviate the symptoms<br />Approx. 30 mins running or cycling 2/3 times a week in the months before the trip should be plenty<br />
  7. 7. Cost<br />*Where flights or safari not included a £600 extra cost has been added so that totals can be compared<br />Extra cost for tips, visa, some meals a start and end of trip approx£200<br />
