Why choose this Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek?

In a time where technology rules the world and speed is paramount, sometimes there is nothing quite like disconnecting and connecting with nature--relying on nothing more than your feet to move your forward. No cars, no boats, no trains - just you, the majestic African wilderness and professional tour guides to, you know, make sure you don’t end up being the Lion King’s dinner.

This is your chance to follow the less travelled Shira Route up the western slope, hiking eight days through the spectacular landscapes of five temperate zones... 

Sit Right On Africa's Roof. 

Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak and is one of the tallest mountains in the world, located in the heart of Tanzania. On this 10-day trek with National Geographic Experts (talk about being in good hands), you’ll travel the Shira Route up the Western Slope spotting wildlife and breathtaking views as you go.

You’ll stay in deluxe tented camps throughout your trek and then finish with a comfortable hotel stay at the end of your adventure (just think of that warm bed on the tougher hiking days!). Your trek will take you to Uhuru Peak, the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, where at 19,000 feet up you’ll be sitting on what’s known as “Africa’s roof” for the view of a lifetime.

Just don't go forgetting your camera as the images you're going to capture here might be amongst the most memorable photos you ever take...

In Short:

  • Get away from the stressful life to some truly amazing nature.
  • Trek Africa's highest peak
  • 10-day adventure guided by National Geographic Experts
  • Stay in deluxe tented camps (to, you know, balance out all the hard work trekking!)
