Mt Kilimanjaro

The highest free-standing mountain in the world!

Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the world’s greatest natural wonders: a snow-covered mountain on the equator, an ocean of green forest surrounded by dry savannah. It is the highest mountain in Africa, standing at 5,895m and technically the easiest to climb of the Seven Summits.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is like walking from the equator to the North Pole in a week, providing dramatic changes in vegetation and animal life day by day. Kilimanjaro is also a sky island, where high altitudes have created habitat for strange and unique life forms found only on a few other peaks on the planet.

Although it is a non-technical climb what makes this trek challenging is the high altitude. You don’t need ropes or special mountaineering gear, or even any previous mountain climbing experience.  A combination of good fitness, determination and a sense of adventure makes this trek an achievable and life-changing journey!

The summit is called ‘Uhuru Peak’ – Uhuru is the Swahili word for “Freedom.” When you climb Kilimanjaro, with other women and stand on the rooftop of Africa, you see the world in a totally different way. Things that once seemed impossible suddenly appear achievable!

Expect to be challenged, changed and inspired as we begin this amazing adventure!

Machame Route – 7 Day Trek

  • One of the most popular trekking routes due to its high summit success rate
  • Great for acclimatisation as it allows trekkers to ‘walk high, sleep low’
  • Stunning scenery through five amazing climatic zones

The Machame route is a highly recommended route to climb Kilimanjaro as it offers great acclimatisation, allowing the trekker to ‘walk high, sleep low’, and as a result enjoys one of the highest summit success rates of all the routes on Mt Kilimanjaro.

This route approaches from the southwest passing through Kilimanjaro’s five diverse climatic zones, with stunning views to the west across the Shira Plateau where it joins the Lemosho/Shira route on day 3. It then continues on to the magnificent Lava Tower, followed by the Great Baranco Wall and Kilimanjaro’s Southern Icefield. 

“This trip was so much more than just climbing Mt Kilimanjaro! A lifetime memory and lifetime friends – a very special experience to have shared with others.” Sandy P
