Description

When it comes to climbing Kilimanjaro (5,895m), the challenge isn’t technical, but physical. The challenge that comes with the iconic mountain in Tanzania, and highest peak in all of Africa, comes from having the endurance to make it to the top. And, one of the biggest factors that comes with scaling the peak is proper acclimatization. That is why we are happy to offer this 13-day expedition that will not only take you to the summit of Kilimanjaro, but will firstly take you to the summit of Mount Kenya (5,199m). And, as a result of that first climb, you will get all of the acclimatization you need for the second one.

While smaller and much less popular with climbers than Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya is nonetheless a fantastic peak that is well worth climbing. The experience of the climb, along with the tremendous views of the surrounding landscape you’ll get to enjoy from the summit make the journey unforgettable. Furthermore, after you’ve climbed the peak, you’ll only get more excited about the climb of Kilimanjaro to come.

While neither of the two climbs on this trip are technically difficult, it is absolutely imperative that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

If you would like to enjoy a nearly 2-week adventure that includes climbing Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro, this is the trip for you. To join us on this expedition, please send a request. We look forward to guiding you.

Would you like to only climb Kilimanjaro? Then come and join us on this week long adventure that will take you to the top of the great mountain along the Rongai Route.
