Join me on this Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro climb and discover one of the world’s 7 summits! On this 9-day adventure in Tanzania, we will explore one of the most amazing mountains in the world as we climb to the top of the famous Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro is an emblematic mountain in Tanzania, and at 5,895 m, it is the highest mountain in Africa. There are many ways to tackle this breathtaking peak, however, the Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro route has the highest summit success rate. It is also the longest route, which allows for the most acclimatization time. The route approaches Mount Kili from the west and departs from Londorosi Gate. The descent is through the Mweka route and ends at the Mweka Gate.

On this 9-day adventure, we will have the chance to tackle the Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro route. We will set off with porters, tents and all the necessary equipment and food for the trip. Keep in mind that you will need to have a good fitness level as we will enjoy an average of 3-6 hours of trekking every day and different terrains and climatic conditions. Of course, one of our guides will be there to help you every step of the way.

What people are saying about Sirikwa



We had an amazing time during our journey to the summit of Lenana . It was really difficult but with the help and accurate direction of our guide , James, we were able to reach the summit just to eclipse our eyes with the sunrise. I will never forget the images and the feeling of accomplishment from the top . During our ascendant we had a wonderful team of driver , porters , cook and guide : Willis, bernard, terrace, Joseph, jackelin, Simon , Tim and James ; all of them gave to us a warm welcome, always smiling and making sure we were confortable and mostly safe. The only discomfort was at Shipton camp where the conditions are really precarious. It looks like no one care about honouring the beauty of nature that surround the camp. They ( rock mountain hotel ) should respect such a lovely location, be proud and take measurements to have a camp on the level that the site offers. We really felt like sleeping in a pig pen 1 toilet for 20 people with bumped beds with not ladders and no space between one another . Really it is a place that need URGENTLY a remake . With regard on the main agency EXPLORE-SHARE ; we experienced an issue post booking . We did not received clear information, our question where not answered , etc . Fortunately , Nicky came and sorted out everything for us ( grateful forever) she made the changes needed and we finally got the best ( Siriwa travel). In short “UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, where challenge is constantly surrounded by a great scenery in a huge National Park”. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



You did not give a detailed packing list for this trekking. it would be nice if you already to give the option to stay in the Austrian Hut (we did) . The daily description could be better. The first day we walked 5 km and the last day 9km. The other days we walked 7-8 hours
