Have you always dreamt of scaling the height of Mount Kilimanjaro? If the answer’s yes, Ubon Safari can help make that dream a reality in 2017.
As the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro rises 19,341 feet above sea level. Climbers first ascended the mountain in 1889, but, nowadays around 30,000 people climb Kilimanjaro every year. Although there are number of theories about its name, Kilimanjaro is thought to mean ‘mountain’ and ‘whiteness.’
Kilimanjaro has many tropical forests, a desert, savannah, and montane forests with subalpine plants. It is an extremely beautiful and breath-taking place for any group to climb.
With Ubon Safari you can choose from a number of different routes, including Marangu, Machame, Shira, Rongai, Umbwe, and Lemosho.
Start from the Marangu Gate and reach heights of 5,895 metres.
With this Mount Kilimanjaro climb, your group can spend 5 nights and 6 days trekking up the famous mountain. This is one of the most popular routes for climbers and enables you to sleep in huts on the route.
For this route you will arrive in Moshi, which is situated on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro and considered the cleanest town in Tanzania. Our popular route starts at the Marangu Gate on the eastern side of Kilimanjaro. The climb includes stays at Mandara and Kibo, along with two nights at the Horombo huts, where you can get some spectacular photographs of the sunrise. This trip includes the chance to see the Maundi Crater, which offers a fantastic view of a ‘parasitic cone’ (an accumulation of volcanic material).
The summit day will take you to the Uhuru Peak (5,895m)- the highest summit on Kibo’s crater rim. You will be met with views from Gilman’s Point, with successful climbers receiving a certificate at the end. Just don’t forget to take plenty of pictures at the top!
