Lemosho Glades route  Sucess!

Did the Lemosho Glades route. Unfortunately it's not allowed to do it solo. Had to go with local guide, porters and cook, which totally ruined the experience.

6 Day Machame  Sucess!

Rainy and snowy week but fortunately summit day was not too bad. The Machame route in six days is doable but offers less acclimatization. In retrospect I would have done it in seven days.

Machame route  Sucess!

We did 7 days Machame route with Tanzania Joy Tours. I would highly recommend this company because all of us were very satisfied with the service provided by them. The porters and the guides were very helpful and the price we paid was very reasonable.

Quick summit   Sucess!

Great trip, up and down in 4 days so had time to enjoy rest of Tanzania

Got to the Top  Sucess!

Took the Lemosho Route, which gave us seven days to acclimatize before summit day. Nine of us got to the top. Great group and great hike, even if we summitted Kibo in clouds and sleet. And outstanding guides -- Bwenje, Edward, Charles and Polite -- who were determined to get this gang of 60-year-olds to the top.

Birthday hike  Sucess!

Birthday hike via Marangu (had only 4.5 days in Africa), crazy trip, beautiful summit, super cold, and met lots of interesting people.

Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Route  Sucess!

Amazing mountain

Detour  Sucess!

Great guides from Destination Tanzania Safaris (DeTaSa). Began the Shira Plateau route 9/7/15 from Lemosho Glades Trailhead, headed for the Western Breach and final night at Crater Camp. Fatal rockslide in the Breach one day ahead of us closed the route and forced a detour around the mountain: Lava Tower Camp to Barafu Huts via the Southern Circuit. Long, cold slog from Barafu on Summit day.

Great Trip  Sucess!

Really nice trip up the Machame route with Zara tours which I would highly recommend (along with Salim Zimbwe as our guide). Very enjoyable.

Great ascent on clear day!  Sucess!

After two rainy (and one sunny day) we started our ascent to Kilimanjaro on 10th February at midnight.

Perfect clear night, with plenty of stars was great sign. After 8 hours we were at top of Africa. Amazing feeling and something you remember all your life.

Machame  Sucess!

Rolled the dice at the end of the long rains and won: nothing but blue skies and climbed in 5 days with three new friends from Denmark. Mndeme and co from Zara took great care of us. Unforgettable experience.

Lemosho Route  Sucess!

Climbed with Zara Tours (highly recommend them) followed by 5 day Safari including 2 days in Serengeti (the best 2 days, others pale in comparison). Was at the peak for sunrise.

Weather Cooperated  Sucess!

Rongai Route

Worried the clouds would have blocked the view and that the high winds would make things miserable. Fortunately summit day was clear and not windy. Made it to Uhuru at 0700.
