Kilimanjaro climb

Climbing the Kilimanjaro
The Ultimate Achievement

What can be more personally satisfying than standing on top the highest peak in Africa? Tropical Trails outfits these climbs with the very best equipment and our own guides and porters to give you the best chance of reaching the summit. We specialize in the less frequented, more scenic routes such as the  Lemosho, Machame, Rongai, Shira or Umbwe but we can organize a Marangu ascent as well!
There is no guarantee of success but our percentage of climbers to reach the summit is one of the best !
