When it comes to famous peaks in the world, few match the magnitude of Kilimanjaro (5,895m) in Tanzania. And for 12 thrilling days, I would like to guide you to the summit of this great peak during a biking and climbing expedition you will never forget.

Our approach to Kilimanjaro, which will take about 7 days, will take your breath away. We will travel through forest and savanna, while also crossing rivers and lakes. Furthermore, during this great journey, you will have the opportunity to talk to people around the mountain, from the fishermen at the Nyumba Ya Mungu lake to the Massais warriors in the villages we will pass through.

There is a long list of highlights you will get to enjoy during the riding portion of this trip. They include the Chemka springs, the volcanic Chala lake, the Materuni waterfall, the Rau rainforest and so much more. There is, of course, a wide assortment of wildlife you will get to see during the approach as well. So, don’t be surprised if you spot a giraffe, zebra, elephant, blue monkey, baboon, crocodile and more.

After the 7-day approach, we will change from travelling on bike to travelling on foot. We will follow the Machame route for 3 days to Kilimanjaro’s base camp. After that, we will make our way to Kibo, the mountain’s central summit, early in the morning, so you can see the sunrise. Needless to say, the views from the summit are spectacular.

To enjoy this adventure, you should be in excellent physical condition. You should also have prior biking and climbing experience as well.

During this 12 day expedition, you will not only enjoy the thrill of reaching the top of Kilimanjaro, you will also enjoy the thrill of reaching the mountain by biking through its surrounding area. To join me on this trip, just send a request.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
