Holidays to Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

‘As wide as all the world, great, high and unbelievably white in the sun, was the square top of Mount Kilimanjaro.’ Ernest Hemingway

WHY KILI?

There is nothing quite like it anywhere else on  Earth. The world’s tallest freestanding mountain and the only place on land where you can clearly see the curvature of the Earth! It is a challenge, no doubt, but the rewards for those who climb Kilimanjaro are immense - the friendly welcome and endless encouragement from the Chagga guides and porters, the warmth of the sun rising over Africa,  and that final sense of achievement are unbeatable. 

 

WHY CLIMB KILIMANJARO WITH EXODUS?

  • We use 1 guide for every 2 clients, as such we are one of the very few operators which follow the national park guidelines on Kilimanjaro.

  • Numerous routes from 6- 8 days on the mountain, all with an extra day to the standard trek to aid acclimatisation.

  • Our guides have comprehensive first aid training, and from 1st January 2011 we will  carry portable oxygen to treat altitude sickness on all our trips, should this be needed. We sponsor a Kilimanjaro Porter Project and invest in our porters education, sponsor guides to do extra training and pay a fair wage on the mountain. 

  • Henry Stedman the author of Kilimanjaro, the most comprehensive book on Mount Kilimanjaro, has written that our operator/local partner has "a reputation for reliability and an impressively high standard of treks" and amongst the large number of climbing companies is "one of the best on the mountain."

WHY RONGAI AND LEMOSHO?

We climb Kilimanjaro using the Rongai and Lemosho routes instead of Marangu or Machame because:

  • Both are quiet, wilderness routes, well away from the crowded climbs. Only 10% of Kilimanjaro climbers ascend by these two routes.
  • Both traverse the mountain using different ascent and descent routes, so no back tracking, giving time to explore the different climatic zones, wildlife and scenery.
  • We have added extra days to the standard itineraries set by the National Park to help aid acclimatisation and to help you reach Uhuru Peak, at 5895m (19340ft) the highest point in Africa.
