"CLIMBING KILIMANJARO - Don't Just Dream It!........Do It!"

WELCOME! or, as they say in Swahili – Jambo!

Thanks for taking the time to look at our site! We are currently rebranding our Travel & Tourism web site and over time our travel and hiking adventures will expand these pages with an exciting range of options!

Adventure Afrika Trekking & Travel.....

has been involved in a number of highly successful trips to climb Mount Kilimanjaro which is located in the North East corner of Tanzania, and on the South East border of Kenya.

The base of Kilimanjaro, a dormant volcano, is about 800 km x 400 km in extent. It is elongated in shape in an East-South-East direction. It is not a "single" mountain, but consists of 3 major volcanic centres:

1) SHIRA - standing at 4,006 m ASL on the Western end, the first to become dormant

2) MAWENZI - standing at 5,149 m ASL on the Eastern end....and

3) KIBO - standing at 5,895 m ASL in the centre, the last to be active. It is thought the last major episode of activity by Kibo was in the last few centuries with fumarolic activity being recorded during the 1940's.

Of the three extinct volcanoes, it is Kibo you climb to reach the highest point in Africa - Uhuru Peak - standing at an impressive 5,895m above sea level.

Climb Routes:

All Adventure Afrika's Scheduled departure groups attempting the climb are ACCOMPANIED on their entire journey by one of our experienced Tour Leaders or Guides.

There are 5 recognized main routes used to summit Kibo, of which we have identified 3 as being best suited to our guests...

1) The Marangu hutted route.

2) Machame / Umbwe route, a camping route.

3) Machame / Baranco Wall route, also a camping route.

Each of these routes caters to differing levels of ability and interest. Please contact us for details.

For those of you who live in or near Cape Town, we run regular talks and slide shows covering all aspects of the climb. For our current range of talks, please see the table below.
For those of you a bit further away, we would be more than happy to send you relevant information.
