Our Hints, Tips, Tricks, & Recommendations

Climb Kilimanjaro With Us!

Our local, expert guides know the routes like the backs of their hands. From the moment you make contact, to the jubilation at the summit, and all the way back to the airport transfer, we’ll be with you all the way. We treat our guests how we would want to be treated and we strive to provide them with life-changing travel experiences. Challenging yourself to summit Kilimanjaro with Roam Wild Adventure will certainly change your outlook on life.

Below, we’ve laid out some of the most important points you need to know before making your way to Tanzania, but any other questions you may have, please feel free to reach out to us!

First and foremost, we love giving back to the places we visit and we love it even more when you do too! Embrace a truly life-changing journey and conquer the roof of Africa while doing some good for your favorite charity. We can help any person or group with their charity Kilimanjaro climbs, just get in touch with us to get started.

One thing we need to highlight before we go any further: Mount Kilimanjaro is not a technical climb and no special mountain climbing experience is needed. In fact, out of all the Seven Summits (the highest mountains on each of the seven continents on earth), Kilimanjaro is the only one that can be said to be truly “walkable”. Below are our recommendations on how to prepare for the climb, as it will be challenging but 100% achievable and preparation is the key.

Mt. Kilimanjaro is truly one of the great trekking experiences on earth. But there are several factors that make this a tough but totally achievable climb. The walk itself is strenuous on your muscles and joints, regardless of the number of days you choose. The higher you go, the thinner the air gets and acclimatization is imperative to a successful climb. Nearing the summit, you’ll have roughly half the amount of oxygen per breath than you normally would have. We deliberately include acclimatization days on our climbs to give us the best possible chance for our bodies to adjust and for us to reach the summit. Lastly, the days leading up to the summit push aren’t overly difficult but the last day before summiting is tough both physically and mentally. A midnight start with an ascent over 1500m and a descent of nearly 3000m totalling 16-18 hours is a challenge.

So, as the saying goes, failure to prepare is preparing to fail. We would recommend a minimum of 2 long hikes a week (we recommend increasing this dramatically to almost daily as you approach your date) leading up to your climb with a weighted backpack to help with leg strength and endurance for the long haul of Kilimanjaro. For more specific training information, reach out to our professional team.

Don’t skimp out on expensive equipment as you will suffer the consequences on the mountain. Our best piece of advice is don’t turn up with brand new walking boots, ensure they have been the same ones you have been training in and you are certain you will be comfortable. Next is your head. For the hot temperatures, ensure you have something that provides solid sun protection. As we near the summit, a woolly hat or even a balaclava is highly recommended. A four-season sleeping bag, trekking poles to assist your knees on the way back down, a comfortable daypack, and sunscreen are also high on the priority list.

Good question. Each route has its pros and cons. We offer 5 options (please see our selection below): Lemosho Route, Northern Circuit, Rongai Route, Machame Route, & the Marangu Route.

Lemosho: The Lemosho route is known to be one of the most scenic routes on Mt. Kilimanjaro. This is an eight-day trek, allowing extra time for acclimatization, in turn, making this a very achievable climb. With an overall success rate of 95%, the Lemosho Route is hailed as one of the least crowded and most accessible routes on Kilimanjaro.

Northern Circuit: This relatively new route ascends the more scenic and tranquil western slope of Kilimanjaro and crosses nearly the entire mountain before the summit. This is easily one of the most picturesque paths and tranquil journeys up Africa’s highest point, as there are almost no other groups on the northern face.

Rongai: The upside is: there are very few climbers on the same path as you, adding to the vast, open wilderness and the incredible scenery. The downside? Because of the route profile, it isn’t as easy to acclimatize BUT, as we mentioned before, we do add an extra day to aid acclimatization.

Machame: Due to its high success rate (90% for a 7-day trek), it is one of the better routes to aid acclimatization. The views on this route are incredible and you also get the added challenge of the Great Barranco Wall. If your goal is solely to reach the summit, this should be your choice.

Marangu: The Marangu Route is considered to be one of the easier paths to the summit, given its gradual slope and direct path. Being only 6 days long, it can be slightly more challenging to acclimatize because the paths are more direct than others.

Another good question to ask. Simply put, the area surrounding Kilimanjaro is under monsoon conditions during April and May, and one shorter season in November. We take this into consideration as our tour availability ranges from January through mid-March, mid-June through October, and then December. Outside the monsoon season, the weather is typically dry and clear.

Tanzania has three major international airports: Dar es Salaam (DAR), Zanzibar (ZNZ) and Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO). The latter is the most convenient for Kilimanjaro, sitting only 42 km away from the mountain town of Moshi and 50 km from Arusha. In addition to flights to Tanzania, you may consider flights to Nairobi in Kenya, which is only a 5-hour shuttle bus ride to Arusha or a 1-hour plane ride to JRO. Note, however, that by choosing to fly to Kenya you may need a multiple-entry Kenya visa (if you are flying out of Kenya, too, for example, and spend longer than a fortnight in Tanzania), which can cost as much as $122 USD – thereby reducing or eliminating any saving you may have made in airfares.

In deciding which flights to book, you should take the full trip into consideration. For example, if you would like to spend a couple days in Zanzibar after the climb, it might be best to book one-way tickets from your home to Kilimanjaro Airport for the climb, from Arusha to Zanzibar after the climb, and then from Zanzibar back to your home.

#Didyouknow?
🦁 African lions are the largest of the African cats and one of four big cats that are found in the country. They are the second largest living cat in the world after the Siberian tiger.

The African #lion is an apex predator which means it sits at the top of its food chain and has no natural predators. They are the indisputable kings of the African bush and one of the most sought-after sightings on a safari.

🌳 This area near Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania was originally inhabited by the Dorobo, hunter-gatherers who migrated down from the Lower Nile and were later subordinated to the Masai. Now the Masai live here as cattle herders, practicing millennia old traditions that are still passed down generation to generation.

"Teamwork is the secret ingredient that makes common people achieve uncommon results" ~ Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha.

Many people think climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is out of their reach, literally and figuratively. In reality, Kilimanjaro is one of the most attainable summits in the world. The moderately gentle slope and gradual incline make the trek itself mostly walkable. Other than the altitude, the main challenge is mental. Experienced guides and a unified team are the keys to a successful summit.

Ordinary individuals CAN achieve the extraordinary on Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Stop waiting to go after your dreams. Life is short. Life is precious. Grab hold of the moments that make you feel alive. Do what brings joy to your heart, fills you with gratitude, and gives you purpose 💛💫. #joyful #purposefulliving #dream #believe #achieve #kilimanjaro #climbmountains #ınstagood #hiking #hikingadventures #travelgram ...

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I hope this video gives you the same feeling in your heart that it gives me. Every time I watch it it’s like experiencing the peace, joy, and fulfillment of being in Tanzania, climbing Kilimanjaro, and truly living in the moment all over again.

There’s nothing like traveling, daring yourself to live the life you’re dreaming of, accomplishing things you never thought you could, seeing people and places you only imagined but never thought could be part of your reality. It’s freedom, it’s life, it’s love, it’s all that and more than I have adequate words to say.

Every day precious resources are being lost to climate change. Our biggest mistake is to think it’s someone else’s problem; to think we have time to fix things later on. The truth is, we’re nearly out of time. If we don’t take action now, we may not be able to stop the damage that’s being done to our planet and prevent climate disaster around the globe. It’s not just “gloom and doom” talk, it’s reality. So today, Earth Day 2022, let’s all make a commitment to keep our Earth beautiful for the generations to come.

We’re all aware that plastic waste is a big problem. Even in pristine environments, like our beloved Mt. Kilimanjaro, plastic pollution exists.

To support sustainability efforts, we are giving all of our clients reusable metal water bottles, in the hopes that we can keep plastics off the trails, at the very least. Thank you to our clients and to earth lovers everywhere for trying to make a positive impact.
