Kilimanjaro Climbing and trekking

Complete one of Africa’s great bucket list toppers: Trek Kilimanjaro.

It is an inevitable adventure! No doubt, it is the first idea for a safari to the more athletic personalities. But Anne Lorimor(89) broke the world record as the oldest climber to summit Mount Kilimanjaro in 2019. Standing at 5895 meters above sea level, one does not need to be an experienced mountain climber to reach the Uhuru peak - it takes a fit and healthy state, with a stable all-round condition. To highlight, the youngest climber to the summit is Coaltan Tanner of the USA, who made it to the top of Kilimanjaro at just six(6) years old.

With strong will power and a little bit of luck, our trekking team of experts supported by a standby emergency medical helicopter evacuation team from our insurance provider will complete your trekking crew ready to conquer Kilimanjaro off your bucket list.

Kilimanjaro can be climbed from 5 routes. The easiest - the Marangu route, Umbwe, Rongai, Lemosho, and Machame route - the most popular. It is these routes that dictate how many days one needs for the summit.

Mt.Kilimanjaro Trekking Routes

KILIMANJARO CLIMB WITH GLADIOLA ADVENTURE

To summit, Mt. Kilimanjaro is through 5 routes. The easiest – the Marangu route, Umbwe, Rongai, Lemosho, and Machame route – the most popular. Due to Mt. Kilimanjaro’s proximity to the equator, the Kilimanjaro region does not experience the extremes of winter and summer weather but rather, dry and wet seasons. Therefore when planning to climb Kilimanjaro with ease, target the warmest and driest months of the year(see table below) and also keep a note that the number of days for the summit will also depend on the route you take.

This short film(left) by Laurence Hills presents the beauty of Kilimanjaro’s ecological zones breathtakingly.

Safety and Insurance

Gladiola Adventure has partnered with Kilimanjaro Search and Rescue (SAR), a helicopter rescue operation that conducts, modern, and efficient rescue services on Kilimanjaro. Airbus AS 350 B3 helicopters waits nearby at Moshi Airport. Once a distress call is received, rescue procedures start within five minutes. Expert pilots, highly trained rescue doctors, and emergency flight technicians are exceptionally qualified and prepared for all emergencies on the mountain.

Kilimanjaro SAR also manages a medical clinic that focuses on high altitude-related illnesses, mountain medicine, and trauma. It is staffed 24 hours a day by physicians, nurses, and assistants offering the best possible treatment. This group of professionals is advised by a unique Clinical Advisory Team made-up of top-level medical, and high altitude professionals.

Please note: This service is only available to clients who have the required travel insurance. Special travel insurance is mandatory to participate in our trips. Clients must be covered to trek at high altitudes up to 6,000 meters to qualify for Kilimanjaro SAR rescue. We will have to verify your travel insurance before the attempt.

Featured extras to surprise your friends after the summit!

HERO FLIGHT

A unique and hustle free way to end your epic adventure, shortening the 2 days descent journey to a comfortable 60 minutes flight after conquering Africa’s highest peak. Hit that long-awaited refreshing shower and get that cold beer while remaining with more time for another adventure. We call this ‘Hero flight’, and you can call it “The Kilimanjaro Express”

The pickup points to be Cossovo, Barafu or Kibo Hut camp

The charges are 1,500$ if there is only one person interested. 1,000$ if there is more than one person interested in the same group.

 

When to climb Kilimanjaro

The best time to climb Kilimanjaro tends to be the warmest and driest months of the year(see table right) due to Kilimanjaro’s proximity to the equator giving the Kilimanjaro region only dry and wet seasons.

Why should you care? The primary concern here is safety, the effects of rain, mud, snow, ice, and cold on a physically demanding activity like trekking can be very challenging to some travelers. Correspondingly, your chances of a successful summit also increase significantly with supportive weather conditions. Of course, the routes get crowded with more foot traffic during these periods as well.

Basic camping Safari

A basic camping safari is more of experiencing African Nature in its purest forms. Picture you, your friends, and family falling asleep in a sleeping bag with lions roaring in the background or distant cackling of hyenas, and the occasional roar or trumpet from one of Africa is larger residents. It is this authentic.

ACCOMMODATIONS: CAMPSITES & TENTED CAMPS

Breathtaking is having dinner under the impressive African skies, enjoy a campfire, inspiring bush stories, while listening to the sounds of the wild animals of Tanzania; a lion's roar from a distant, hyena's giggle, baboons bark, or zebras and impalas galloping past. Or hold your breath, as the interested inquisitive giraffe family amble closer to watch you! It's indescribable!

Tailored itineraries based on our personal favorites.

Want to see a kill? Calving Season (January and February)

In late January and February, it is calving season you might get lucky to see baby zebras and wildebeest. These are the dryer months with occasional rain. These rains trigger the calving season for most of the herbivores allowing great chances of observing hunts by the predators; that scene of the action unfolding between mothers, their calves, and hungry predators prowls the surrounding areas. Want to see a kill? Book your safari with us this season. Kills are plenty due to the number of vulnerable calves.

On budget? Wet Season (March to May- low season)

The long rains start in March and end in May and bring the dry bush back to life with lush greenery. In this season, game parks are less crowded. Northern circuit parks still get quite a few visits while some of the southern and western circuit parks lodges may close down. In this regard, you can often get discounted rates at those that are open.

However, the wet season is the best season for bird watchers with a chance to observe many rare species of birds. And to remind you, remember it is during the rains that the malarial mosquitoes become very common. So if you booked your safari in this season, make sure you get the right advice about anti-malarial medications.

Looking for the best weather? Dry Season (June to October- High season)

? June and July are the best months to see the wildebeest migration

? August to September is the best time to see the wildebeest river crossings in northern Serengeti

? Animals are easy to spot since they concentrate around waterholes and rivers

? There are fewer mosquitoes because there is little to no rain

? Skies are clear and most days are sunny

⚠️ Mornings and nights get cold, bring warm clothing.

Shoulder Season (November and December)

November to March is known as the green (or shoulder) season. It is not necessarily the best time to visit Tanzania but still a great time to explore, with fewer visitors and fantastic safari opportunities. It is during this time that the migrating herds head back into Tanzania and start calving in the southeast Serengeti in January. The green season is still a popular time to visit, but this green season is quieter than peak season and can offer lower prices. However, the festive period from mid-December to mid-January is busy and pricey, so you need to book in advance if you want to travel then.

Following the Great Migration by Month.

December – March: Ndutu, Southern Serengeti

April – May: Grumeti, Western Serengeti

June – July: Seronera, Central Serengeti

July – September/October: Lobo/Kogatende, Northern Serengeti

INSURANCE INCLUSIVE PACKAGES

To insure your safety all Gladiola Adventure’s Safari packages published on this website have Maisha short term cover insurance subscription from AMREF Flying Doctors aimed at providing quality and affordable Air Ambulance evacuation services throughout the East African region targeting individuals and small groups travelling for Holiday, Business & Conferences, sports and other adventure activities.
