During your trek to climb Kilimanjaro you will pass through a range of climatic zones beginning with tropical rainforest, then alpine heath with the rather unusual looking groundsel tree, across a lunar landscape and up to glaciers near the summit. The best months for Kilimanjaro are from January to mid-March and from early June to mid-October.
Climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro on the roof of Africa. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a real challenge and most trekkers find the summit day a very tough experience with over 1,000m of ascent at extreme altitude. It is important to note that this is a non-technical climb and would be a suitable objective for fit and experienced hill walkers. We recommend that you start a training program at least three months before departure
Our program to climb Kilimanjaro takes six/seven days with the summit day starting in the morning of Day 5/6. It is important that you take your time and walk slowly during the first five days in order to help the acclimatization process and to keep your energy for the summit day. Keeping well hydrated throughout the trip and eating enough food will also increase your chances of summit success.
At Touch Africa Adventures we believe in providing comprehensive pre departure support and advice, training ideas and other tips to increase your chances of summit success. We will be available for any questions you might have whether with a face to face meeting or by phone and email.

Kilimanjaro trekking Marangu Route
The Marangu route is one of the most popular routes to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier.
