Overview

Summit success on Kilimanjaro is all about acclimatisation. With 8 days on the mountain this is the itinerary to choose if you are able to afford that extra time. Starting out in the west and with a first day of trekking through dense stands of forest, rich in wildlife, this peaceful and relatively little-trekked Lemosho Route climbs to trek across the scenic moorland of the Shira Plateau and offers great views of Kibo's southern glaciers. It is one of the quietest and most varied routes on the mountain and also the longest of the regular routes. You will spend 4 nights at close to 4000 meters before moving on to complete the final 2 stages to the summit of Kilimanjaro. A pre-dawn start on the last day of our ascent enables us to reach the high point at Uhuru Peak (5895m) in time to see the summit snows illuminated by the golden light of sunrise.


As you stand on the roof of Africa and admire the views below of the clouds and African plains, you will feel an immense sense of pride. This is probably not a journey you are going to do more than once, so ensure you have the best chances of summiting and that you enjoy it. This exceptional trekking adventure holiday offers you the maximum chance to summit this fine mountain.

Further options:

Rongai Route (7 days trekking on Kili)

Is this holiday for you?

For most, standing on the summit of the highest peak in Africa is either a life-time goal or a personal challenge. On Kilimanjaro walking days are between 4-7 hours, most being around 6-7 hours. The summit day is long with a pre-dawn start and around 12hrs of walking. All trails on the mountain are well marked and kept. Higher up there are some section of scree which we have to negotiate.

For most, standing on the summit of the highest peak in Africa is either a life-time goal or a personal challenge. On Kilimanjaro walking days are between 4-7 hours, most being around 6-7 hours. The summit day is long with a pre-dawn start and around 12hrs of walking. All trails on the mountain are well marked and kept. Higher up there are some section of scree which we have to negotiate. They are easy to follow, however you will always be behind your expert guide to ensure that you walk slow enough to adjust to the altitude.   The Lemosho Route has been classed by many as the easiest (…remember everything is relative!) because you spend the longest time on the mountain giving yourself the time to adjust to the altitude. For some comparison: On a 6-day ascent (Marangu Route for example), 5 or 6 people out of 10 will reach the summit, most of them having really struggled to get there. On this 8-day Lemosho ascent, typically 9 out of 10 will make the summit.   A typical day starts with early morning tea in your tent at 0600. After a hot breakfast, our porters take their loads and we leave camp for our days walk. Lunch is at around 1100 and we aim to be at camp at around 1500-1600 to relax before dinner in the mess tent later. Of course certain days are longer, especially the summit day!   Don’t forget – Kilimanjaro is a big mountain (Africa’s biggest in fact!), you will need to be fit and mentally prepared to ensure summit success, and return home with the unique memories and the satisfaction of this massive achievement. You should aim to be at least fit enough to walk for at least two days in a row for 5-7 hours without a problem. Put on your boots and get walking and with a huge amount of determination you’ll be able to do it. Get training now and you can join the exclusive group who have summited.

After breakfast at our hotel, we drive to the Londorossi Gate (2360m) on the west side of Kilimanjaro, firstly on the main road and then through a mix of small farms and larger coffee estates that thrive at this altitude on the fertile soil of the mountain's lower slopes. After meeting our local trek crew, we start walking in the late morning through plantation pine forest and remnant rainforest, arriving at camp mid to late afternoon. Our first camp on Africa's greatest peak is at Miti Kubwa (Big tree) camp at 2895 metres.

The area between Londorossi Gate and the lower slopes of Kibo, including the Shira Plateau, was designated as Tanzania's first wilderness area. Today, we trek across an attractive moorland plateau, and up to the plateau setting up camp about an hour beyond at an altitude of around 3600m. There is the chance of seeing some wildlife here, especially birds of prey, including the Auger Buzzard. The wall of the Western Breach on Kibo can be seen in the distance and is particularly impressive if it has a covering of snow.

Continuing our trek across the slopes of Kilimanjaro we fuel up with a hearty breakfast as we enjoy the majesty of morning African vistas. Our trekking today continues across the Shira Plateau which is the remains of the Shira Caldera, Kilimanjaro's oldest volcano (which last erupted around 700,000 years ago). This whole area was then submerged by eruptions from the much younger Kibo eruptions of 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. Enjoying a well-paced day of trekking gives us plenty of opportunities to adjust to the demands of hiking at altitude and enjoy the beauty of Africa's highest peak! Along the way and to further aid our acclimatisation we will do a 200m ascent of Shira Cathedral (3872m) with splendid views down to the rainforest where the Machame route winds up. Setting up camp (3900m) early in the afternoon, provides some well-earned rest in anticipation of the summit day further ahead!

A very early start enables us to take advantage of the best surface conditions (frozen scree and possible snow) for our trek up to the summit of Kilimanjaro. The angle of climb is steeper today as we reach the Crater Rim at the place known as Stella Point. From here, there are good views of the ice cliffs within the crater. There are also amazing views of Mawenzi summit and 'the saddle'. If the conditions are particularly clear, we may also be able to see distant Mount Kenya. Following the crater rim for about an hour on easier terrain we ascend to the highest point in Africa - Uhuru Peak (5895m). After admiring the summit views and taking the obligatory summit photos we pat ourselves on the back for this awesome achievement. We then set off on the long, long descent to Mweka Camp at 2950m. A challenging but rewarding trekking day!

Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals are included in the holiday price from dinner on Day 1 until breakfast on Day 10.

It is not recommended to drink untreated water from the taps. If you are on a trekking or cycling holiday, water is supplied to fill up your individual bottles. This will be boiled, filtered or provided in large jerry cans or 5 litre bottles. Additionally you should take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) to treat your water when in towns or where water is not supplied. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Being hydrated and well fed is important element to summiting success. Our head chef and cook team works hard to ensure that the menu is carefully planned as you ascend, especially as it’s not unusual for people to lose their appetites at altitude. It is pretty amazing what this team of experts are able to produce on the side of the mountain.

At breakfast we have a hot drink (tea, coffee or hot chocolate) with porridge, or eggs, sausages and toast with jam, marmalade or honey. Lunch is usually three courses; starting with soup, followed by a hot meal such as cheese toast or chicken and ending with some fresh fruit or sometimes a muffin. Afternoon tea is served at camp shortly after we arrive, usually around 1500-1600, which is a hot drink with a snack such as peanuts, popcorn, or malt biscuits. Dinner is usually three-courses. Starting with soup, then a carbohydrate such as rice, pasta or potatoes, with beef, chicken, sausage or corned beef and cheese. The end of the meal there will be some fruit or something sweet. Vegetarians will have beans or a vegetable mix with different sauces. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements. You should bring your own trail snacks for the walking days.

At the start of the holiday you have one night at a comfortable hotel with swimming pool a 15 minute drive from Kilimanjaro Airport. We have another night here at the end of the trek.

Whilst on the mountain there are 7 nights camping. We use high quality, spacious 3 person tents. These are Simond Makalu or Mountain Hardware Trango 3 tents and are expedition quality. Only 2 people and their bags stay in each tent. They are surprisingly warm at night. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag, although you can hire them through KE if you prefer. Camping mattresses are provided by KE. We also have a dining tent with a table and chairs for meal times. The team put up the tents and take them down in the mornings for you - so you don't have to worry about that. You will be looked after very well.

We take along our own portable toilets and a little tent for privacy. These are kept nice and clean, and loo roll is provided. There are long drop toilets at each campsite which are maintained by the National Park Authority - but we find its just best to avoid these!

If you are travelling by yourself, you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Single hotel rooms and single tents are available for a supplementary cost. If you are planning on extending your holiday additional nights at the group hotel are available on request.

Our groups are led by a professional and qualified tour leader. They have led groups for many years and have considerable experience on the mountain. Summit success is often attributed to the quality and experience of the guides. We are also supported by a full trek crew including cooks and porters.

This holiday involves going to very high altitude. During the course of your trip you will be spending at least one night above 4000 metres and/or trekking to 5000 metres or above. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatise successfully. Before coming on this holiday you should read the advice on trekking at high altitude. Unless you have previous experience of trekking above 4000 metres you should consult one of our trekking experts before embarking on this holiday. On this trip we carry a portable altitude chamber (PAC-bag) and/or bottled oxygen for use in emergencies.

The entrance fees and camping fees for the Kilimanjaro National Park form a considerable part of the cost of climbing this peak and are also prone to increase. We include these fees in your holiday price.

Approximately £250 per person (or equivalent in US dollars or Euros) should be allowed for tips, soft drinks, snacks and miscellaneous expenses. If your flight departs in the late afternoon or evening, you may wish to budget for a lunchtime snack on the last day. Alcoholic drinks, souvenirs and optional activities are additional so you may wish to budget for these.
 
You can choose to take your money in pounds sterling, US dollars or euros, but US dollars in small notes can also be used in emergencies where change facilities are not available. Tips to trek staff can be paid either in Tanzanian shillings or in US dollars, or a mix of both (USD are preferable). There will be the opportunity to change money into local currency on arrival at the airport on arrival, and we advise you to use the facilities here. Credit cards are useful and it is a good idea to carry one in case of emergency, however be aware that not all lodges/hotels accept cards.  
 

Tips are the accepted way of saying thank you to your guides and porters. Tips they receive are seen as a personal thank you from group members and are entirely dependent on the service that was given. Tipping should be decided and given by the group as a whole rather than from individuals. As a rough guide we suggest that a total contribution of approximately $165-230 from each group member. This will then be divided between the guides and support staff.

For this holiday you should take one piece of luggage, which should be a soft and sturdy duffel bag and a daypack. Your bag on trek will be carried by porters and should not weigh more than 14kg. This weight allowance is strictly enforced.  It is possible to leave clothes or other items not required on trek at the group hotel. For international flights please check your baggage allowance with your airline.

Please be aware that plastic/polythene bags are illegal in Tanzania. The law says that they are not allowed to be manufactured, imported, used or sold in Tanzania (since Jun 2019).

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

Visa Tanzania

UK passport holders do require a visa. The visa fee is $50 (single entry) and is obtainable on arrival or prior to departure online at https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa/. The online application requires a scanned passport photo, a scanned copy of your passport bio page and evidence of your return flight details. 

 

If you are arriving into Kilimanjaro Airport, Dar es Salaam or into Tanzania via the Namanga border crossing, we advise you to get a visa prior to arrival as there can be long queues for visas services at customs.

For visas on arrival you require 2 passport photos for the visa, however we recommend you travel with 4 passport photos just in case. Payment must be in cash when getting your visa on arrival.

USA passport holders do require a visa. The visa fee is $100. It is advised to obtain this prior to departure, full and up to date information can be found online https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/Tanzania.html

 

We (KE) require copy of the information page of your passport in order to make the arrangements in Tanzania. A colour scan must be emailed or posted to us at the earliest opportunity.

 

TRAVELLING WITH UNDER 18YRS

If the children (under 18yrs) with whom you are travelling have a different surname to yours, you should consider taking with you the child's full birth certificate. It is not a requirement, but some border personnel in Tanzania as well as the UK, may request to see it when travelling to/from Africa.

If you are travelling via Kenya to your destination you may also require a visa for Kenya. If you have connecting flights and your baggage has been checked all the way through to your destination you will not need a Kenyan visa.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

VACCINATIONS

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you specific require any vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella), along with hepatitis A and typhoid. Malarial prophylaxis are required. A certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required if travelling from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission and for travellers having transited for more than 12 hrs through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist check up. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

The unit of currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian Shilling.

The fitter you are the more you will enjoy your holiday and you are more likely to summit if you are not totally exhausted at the end of each day. Training should not be a chore, use your Kilimanjaro trip as a good incentive to get out in the evenings after work or a walking weekend in the hills. Aerobic activities such as running, biking and swimming help overall fitness. You should aim to be at least fit enough to walk for at least two days in a row for 5-7 hours without a problem. Put on your boots and get walking and you’ll be able to do it. The summit day is a tough day with an 8-10 hrs ascent and a 6-8 hrs descent – and alongside the fitness you need plenty of determination for this day!

There is little you can do to prepare for the altitude but if you have an excellent level of fitness this can help.

We would recommend wearing and testing out the equipment and clothing that you will be taking with you before you go. Best to find out before you go that your new boots give you a little blister, or the trousers are just a little on the tight side, or the jacket just has too many pockets. At least you can do something about it before the trip.

The driest months are June to October when there is the least likelihood of rain or clouds higher up. This is also peak season to climb Kilimanjaro, especially as many people are on summer holidays. January to end March is also a drier period compared to the long rainy season in April/May and a second, shorter rainy period in November/early December. January to March is usually a bit colder, which can put some people off, but means that there are less people on the mountain. Rain is usually lower down during this period. Temperatures vary greatly with altitude. At the foot of Kilimanjaro it’s usually approximately 25- 28⁰C, dropping to 15⁰C at night. At 3000m, daytime temperatures can be around 15⁰C. Above 4000m, the night-time temperatures will fall below freezing and it is usually no more than 10⁰C in the day.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

Arusha National Park, close to Arusha, is the perfect place to spend a day either before or after your Kilimanjaro climb. The montane forest is inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys, birds and the acrobatic colobus monkey. At the spectacular Ngurdoto Crater we can see herds of buffalo and warthog. And the green and blue Momela Lakes, can be tinged pink with thousands of flamingos. Giraffes can be seen gliding across the grassy hills in between grazing zebra herds.

The main sightings will usually be giraffe, zebra and buffalo heads and sometimes the many flamingos at the pretty Momela Lakes. Good viewings of the blue-and-white colobus monkey are frequent. Elephants are uncommon, and lions & rhino are absent altogether, however leopards and spotted hyenas have been seen in the early morning and late afternoon. Weather dependent this is also a great place for views of majestic snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro and its unassuming cousin, Mt Meru (4566m) that dominates the park's horizon.

Extension Itinerary

After breakfast we leave Arusha and drive to Manyara National Park. The road winds through luxurious jungle where groups of a hundred or more baboons can be found along the road. Blue monkeys climb in the acacia tress and the bushbuck antelope gentle grazing in the shade of the forest. In the meantime the impressive silvery-cheeked hornbills have a cacophonic concert in canopy! We stop for a picnic lunch under the Umbrella Thorn before continuing our game drive. This small park has herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe. It is famous of it's lions who lounge in the Umbrella Thorn (not the one we have our picnic under though!). At the end of the day we drive to our accommodation for the next 2 nights, on the green, lush outskirts of the small village of Karatu.

Meals

After breakfast we drive the 30 mins to Ngorongoro Crater. We spend a full day here in the park discovering its wonders. The crater has an inside diameter of 20km, and is 600m from its rim. It is also one of the places in Tanzania to see the Big 5; elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. More than 550 bird species are found here, and Lake Magadi in the crater is often pink because of the flamingos. We can also see the hippo and buffalo lounging in the mud in Ngoitotitok. It's a special place. We return to our lodge in Karatu for our overnight.

Meals

We have breakfast and depart our accommodation for Tarangire National Park. This park is famed for its large herds of wildlife, especially the elephants between August to January.

Fantastic climbing holiday ★★★★★

We were a group of 6 climbing Kili. Knowledgable and experienced Head Guide, Saidi and his fantastic team gave us the best experience. Their encouragement to get us all to the summit was priceless. They really made every day unforgettable. They are friendly, warm and kind. I will never forget them. This is an amazing experience, its not just getting to the top, it is the whole experience, camping on the mountain. Sunrises and sunsets, the singing, laughter, meeting new people… very special exp erience.

Once in a lifetime! ★★★★★

Our Kilimanjaro adventure with KE was truly amazing! A special shout out to our amazing team led by Onex, and assistant guides Joseph and Matthew and the whole team for all the hard work looking after us and making sure our trip really was once in a lifetime. We couldn’t have done it without your amazing support! We also did the Safari extension afterwards and another special shout-out to our amazing guide “Junior” who went above and beyond to give us the best time ever with his amazing kn owledge and humour. Seeing the big 5 was truly amazing!

Successful summit of Kili, despite horrible weather ★★★★

Was very happy to summit Kili with KE -- the trek arrangement, over the Lemosho route, with its extra days, was critical to proper acclimatization and ultimately making it without AMS. As with my previous experience, KE did a great job organizing and really appreciate that everything is included. The weather (unfortunately NOT under KE's control) was terrible -- although the dry season, it rained every single day, almost all day, so it was a wet week in tents. Lesson: Even if it's supposed to be dry, be prepared! I gave only 4 stars this time because I was not completely impressed by the local partner, as I didn't think they were as well organized and equipped as other KE partners. I got the impression they were new and didn't seem familiar with KE or it's way of working. The individual guides and porters were all great, very friendly and hardworking. The logistics of getting to/from the gate were a bit strange, as we shared a bus with the whole team of 24 and made many stops picking up or dropping off members. If I were to do Kili again (not planning on it), I would definitely go with KE and with Lemosho. Despite the rain and mud, it was a ultimately a great experience!

Well organized trip by KE. ★★★★★

The leader of the team Dismas and all his crew were exceptional from start to finish. Me and my wife were in a group of six and unfortunately the weather was extremely wet the whole trip, which made it hard work for the team, but they were always friendly and helpful. My wife was ill and unfortunately couldn't summit but the remainder of the group did, partially because of the crews help and experience. The down side, KE advertise that they use three man tents for two people but our tents were t oo small. Two people two kit bags and two ruck sacks didnt leave any room to move.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday and are sorry to hear that your wife was unable to summit. The tents you used were Vango Mirage Pro 300 Trek, which are 3-person tents.


Our Tanzanian Big Five ★★★★★

1. World's highest free standing mountain 2.World's largest volcanic caldera 3.World's largest land animal 4. World's largest bird 5.World's fastest land animal. Organisation flawless. The trek via the Lemosho route was stunning. The guides were professional and compassionate. Emanuel is a delightful lead guide as were his aids, Baraka and Clement and his fantastic team of porters. One big family adventure! All crew were caring and supportive of our group's needs. Food was excellent and plenty o f it. Perhaps still take a few snacks for during the day. The trek is made difficult by altitude not the terrain. Although I didn't have any, Diamox seemed to help those who did, so would recommend this as well as a supply of paracetamol/ibuprofen. The kit list is spot on. Our group blended superbly, everyone encouraging each other to achieve 100 % summit success. Three of us booked the follow on safari to Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire NPs. Each was amazing. Our guide, David, was excellent and allowed us more than perhaps his allocated time to view the splendid array of wildlife. The bird life is especially impressive. Our list exceeded 70 identified birds, and we are not dedicated ornithologists. Have some super photos birds, animals and flowers, including the very local 'impatiens kilimanjari' or elephant's trunk flower. The safari lodge accomodation was excellent and well within character for the location. Trip notes for the trip are very accurate, read them well. a 10/10 trip from KE again.

Reaching the roof of Africa!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have dreamed of climbing Kilimanjaro for many years. It has always been one of challenges that I'd contemplate then find an excuse not to do it, normally my own fear of the mountain. Finally I plucked up the courage to book it with KE Adventures; they had a great reputation for mountaineering and high altitude hikes - I knew I'd be in safe hands! They were excellent thought, very informative and responsive and gave me confidence in the trip and my ability to summit. The hike itself was incredi ble! Our guide, Emanuel, and team of assistant guides and porters were outstanding, very knowledgeable, competent, and a lot of fun to be around. We could not have asked for a better group of people to help us reach the summit! I chose the Lemosho route as I knew it was one of the longest on the mountain, giving you several days to acclimatise before trying to summit - I'm soo glad I did, it was simply stunning! Each day was varied and different as you passed through the various vegetation zones, from tropical forests to heather moorland and even lunar landscapes. The walking was lovely, not too intense, and you are encouraged to go 'pole pole' (slowly slowly). Don't be put off by the physical challenge - whilst the summit day can be tough, I'd say that anyone with reasonably good level of physical fitness should be ok. I found it to be more of a mental challenge, which was not helped by several nights of poor sleep. Don't let this put you off - our entire group successfully reached the summit. This was such a rewarding experience and made everything worthwhile, it was an incredible feeling to be on the roof of Africa! One big tip is to take the Diamox tablets (for altitude sickness). I was really uncertain as to whether to take this or not, however based on advice from our guide and friends I decided to take it. I can honestly say that this made a huge difference to my experience and I suffered little (if any) effect of high altitude. Everyone will react differently to altitude, but make the journey as easy and as enjoyable as possible for you. I can also reccommend taking a hot water bottle - it gets chilly at night! Thanks KE for helping me plan an incredible trip and reaching the summit of this iconic mountain!
By Lyndsey from Richmond | 17 September 2019

An exhilarating experience and achievement
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The holiday ran entirely smoothly from booking to return. Good advice from KE, a slick pick up at the airport (even though it was 4.30 am), a lovely hotel and an absolutely brilliant head guide (Emanuel). The rest of the team ( assistant guide, cook and porters) were provided a superb service. Right from the start Emanuel set a pace which was perfect for me. Almost 70 and not superfit, yet I at no point felt totally breathless, thanks to Emanuel's care and support. Neither I (who took diamox) no r my daughter (who didn't) suffered any symptoms of altitude sickness at any point. Trekking poles are an absolute must. I wouldn't have got down without them and similarly I would have had great difficulty with the ascent. At altitude it's important to get into a pattern of rhythmic breathing with the emphasis on the outbreath. Stay well hydrated throughout. Never underestimate how bitterly cold it will be on the pre-dawn final ascent. I had five layers on top, three layers on my legs and three pairs of gloves.

A Really Tough Adventure but Well Worth the Effort
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
At 70 I was not sure I would make it to the top of KIlimanjaro but Onyx, Stanley, Richard and their team gave me the best possible chance and I made it. It was very hard all the way and the last day to the summit starting at midnight and finishing around 5 in the afternoon was the hardest day of my life (and that includes trekking to Everest Base Camp and running 25 marathons!). You don't have to be ultra fit but obviously fitness helps and you need some luck dodging altitude sickness (it can ha ppen to anyone) but I took diamox every morning and night which I think helped. KE Adventure was very well organised and we were well supported with 10 of us having a supporting team of 40 guides, porters, cooks etc. who were all extremely supportive, I have much respect for all of them. If I had to find a negative it would probably be the tents. I think they had seen better days, my zips kept popping open and was difficult to fix and there was duct tape on a couple of the seams which was starting to open again. Time for new tents KE ? The only other issue was the hotel we stayed in at the beginning and end of the trek. We used Aishi Machame Hotel which was in a remote location outside of Moshi with no where to go or see. The rooms were ok with plenty of hot water but the service was not great and the porters were almost fighting to pick up my bags to take to my room which was only a few metres from the reception. At one time I had 3 porters trying to carry my 3 bags, they all wanted a tip. The tip I would give them is go and watch the porters on the trek, they know what real work is and they don't ask for anything in return, just a smile! Overall an excellent but very hard adventure. Another tick on my bucket list.
By Roger from Aylesbury | 13 February 2019

Fantastic local support group
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Tremendous experience. The guides, Onyx in particular, but also Richard and Stanley, were incredibly supportive and made success attainable. Loss of appetite can be an issue and so take lots of easy to eat goodies. Make sure you are reasonably fit (eg able to run for an hour,stairmaster/steps training) as first hour of summit night is demanding.

Breathtaking
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
As I'm one of the ones who DIDN'T make it to the summit due to altitude sickness, I will review that part. Someone from KE in England called me immediately after the event which was very helpful. I developed pulmonary oedema and needed to descent while the rest of the group continued to climb from Karanga Valley camp. The contracted tour company did an excellent job of getting me down off the mountain in a timely manner. I was at first taken care of by our lead guide Elias, and then accompanied down the mountain with assistant guide Barbabas, and a porter. I never felt at risk or in danger due to my condition. Barnabas was outstanding in his care getting down - some 20 km and 8500 feet of descent. We were met by an "evacuation vehicle" which brought me to Arusha, and then a doctor who took care of me at the hotel. Thank you for being competent and caring during an unplanned difficult time.

KE Adventure reply

Thank you for your review. We were sorry to learn that altitude sickness had stopped you from reaching the summit. On all our holidays client safety is our absolute priority and we are pleased that the emergency procedures we have in place on Kilimanjaro worked well and according to plan. We hope you are now fully recovered.


Excellent
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Elias and all the Team from Tanzania cannot be praised enough for all their help, support and encouragement throughout this trip. Rashid the owner also made a point of meeting us all personally at the start and end of the trip which was a nice touch. We had a bit of a medical emergency during the trip but Elias (the guide) and his team dealt with it all very professionally and everyone was put at ease with the person in question recovering fully as a result of his quick thinking. The remainder o f the group all summited successfully and felt we were in good hands all the time. We all know without the help of the porters, guides, cooks and everyone else helping us that we simply would not have made it! A big thumbs up to all who helped us achieve our goal!
By James from HORNCHURCH | 26 September 2016

A truly amazing adventure, and then we reached the summit!!!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Don't be fooled by the slow start, watch the weighing when the porters are given their kit to carry, and enjoy the first couple of hours to the first camp, its the easiest day of the trip. Look out for the monkeys as you near the camp, apart from a few birds this may be the last wildlife you see over the next week. Each day brings new and more stunning scenery as you traverse the lower slopes, with glimpses of what's to come through the cloud. 'Pole, Pole' (slowly, slowly) is the mantra as you g radually climb higher, which you will only fully understand on the summit climb. Don't underestimate your gear for the final climb, you can't work hard enough to keep warm, layer on layer is the only answer, though after the sun rises you will want to strip off many of these layers. Take a good book for the early nights and eat everything put in front of you, i did and still lost about six pounds in weight. Talk to the guides throughout your journey, their knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious, stick to the tipping guide, take plenty of small denomination dollar bills, if you can donate any spare clothing and equipment at the end of your journey it is received with warmth and gratitude. A stunning trip which will be hard to surpass.

An unbelievable hiking and cultural experience
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This trip far exceeded my expectations in every respect! Every aspect that was controllable by KE and their local contractor was handled with professionalism, courtesy and always a smile. The walking is certainly challenging at times, the weather variable, but the rewards are many. Not just the summit, (which I didn't quite achieve due to previously banged up knee), but the cultural experience, humor and care for the group was something I didn't expect. And the cook was amazing!!! I highly r ecommend this trip if you enjoy walking, working hard, want to be challenged and can laugh through difficult hours. Though I don't think laughing was on everyone's list on summit night.
