A spectacular journey to touch the skies above Africa on the world’s highest free-standing mountain.
Standing proudly at 5,895 metres high, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and will treat you to awe inspiring vistas and dramatic sunsets as we scale one of the world’s ‘Great 7’ summits. Kilimanjaro has captivated the world’s mountain climbers for more than 120 years, with ascent possible without high-tech gear or extreme fitness, making the snow-capped giant a goal for many.
The Kilimanjaro National Park is a place of stunning natural beauty where you will travel through incredible and varied ecosystems, from the African plains to tropical rain forests, to sparse alpine desert. With the Dream It team at your side, there is nothing to stop you from standing on the roof of Africa, where you will be rewarded with 360 degree panoramic views across the African plains and a transformative experience that will be with you forever.
Our adventure begins with a climb up the Machame Route, regarded as the most scenic ascent of Kilimanjaro and includes seven days on the mountain. During this time we will travel through five distinct and incredible ecosystems. We will then witness the most spectacular wildlife show on earth, traveling on Safari for five days through the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. We will end the trip with a visit to Zanzibar, exploring its rich history and white sand beaches.
We start our journey above the picturesque mountain village of Machame to the south of Kilimanjaro. After passing through tropical forest and into the moorland zone, we will emerge onto the Shira Plateau. We then climb counter-clockwise under the southern face of Kibo, before ascending the Great Barranco Wall, a challenging and exhilarating rock scramble, and approach Uhuru Summit from Camp Kosovo and the ridge that abuts the Southeast Valley. Access to this high camp is very limited and we have received special permission to use this camp, which offers incredible views of Mawenzi Peak, and higher starting altitude on Summit day. Our mountain crew will ensure your climb is safe and accessible while still challenging and exhilarating. Our climb is carefully planned to ensure gradual acclimatisation.
