Great guides for Kilimanjaro Such a memorable experience! The entire team at Nyange Adventures were so nice and helpful. I was referred to them by a friend and I'm so glad I chose them to help me get to the top of Kilimanjaro! Amnaay was our guide and he did a great job along with the rest of the team. I will definitely visit them again for another trip.

Mount Kilimanjaro Machame Route with Nyange Adventures Had a fantastic experience with Nyange Adventures climbing Mount Kilimanjaro’s Machame route. Had a pre climb briefing to check equipment and to meet my guide Antipas. Hired sleeping bag to save bringing from the UK. Team of eight supported me on a solo climb. They were all fantastic. Had some good laughs. Had trouble eating the amount of food they try to feed you; three meals a day with three courses! Summited in six days rather than the intended seven due to feeling good and no altitude sickness. Whole experience was first class. Should have booked a Safari at the end of the climb.

Incredible experience. Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time at Serengheti and Nogorongo national park. Everyone so friendly. It really felt like we were visitors at the home that belongs to the animals. We started with a tour guide and came back with our friend John. Such a great experience. Strongly recommend!

Kilimanjaro hike review - Machame trail We hiked the Machame trail with Nyange Adventures and had a once in a lifetime experience. Our team was AMAZING and created a safe, supportive, and fun environment. Our guides Mo and Amnaay were the perfect pair to lead us to the summit. They were attentive, took care of us, had our safety in mind always, and truly made my experience a positive one in the setting of having personal health issues at the beginning. I would not have made it to the top without this team!!! Everyone that was a part of the team, including all the porters, worked so hard and joyfully to make our experience a positive one. The food also was great, and you will not be underfed if that’s one of your worries while hiking. Overall, we would recommend Nyange Adventures for anyone who is interested in hiking Kilimanjaro. They are also part of the KPAP group so you know porters and staff will be treated fairly.

Mt Kilimanjaro Climb - 7 days Lemosho My husband and I had the most amazing experience climbing Kilimanjaro with Nyange Adevntures! It is difficult to choose who to do the climb with, due to the multitude of companies offering similar packages. Nonetheless Nyange adventures managed to differentiate themselves from the start, being very personable, flexible and happy to help! Their flexibility and quick problem-solving attitude turned out to be essential, when my flight to Kilimanjaro was cancelled, causing a 1 day delay to the trip. Above all, however, we recommend them for the amazing people that came on the climb with us - the guides, cook, and porters. One can’t describe the experience of climbing the mountain, because it’s incredible in different ways for different people. But the constant variable is that you need a solid team to help you on. An African proverb says “If you want to go quick, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. Nyange Adventure equipped us with a family to travel together with and we will always be grateful!

Lifetime experience Nyange Adventures My friends and I had an amazing experience with Nyange Adventures. First we did the Marangu route in six days with the guide Musa, he and his team were wonderful with us. And then we went on a two-day safari, our guide was amazing and gave us an unforgettable adventure. Thank you to the entire Nyange Adventures team.

MOUNT KILIMANJARO TREKKING ROUTES

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Routes There are seven main Mount Kilimanjaro routes that lead to the summit, Uhuru Peak, one of which begins on the mountain’s northern side and the others on the southern side. You’ll need to pick a route after deciding to climb Kilimanjaro. “Which is the best route to climb Kilimanjaro?” is a question we get asked the most. And the answer is dependant on your aspirations. Our choices are listed below:

The best route to climb Kilimanjaro with the highest success rate.

The Lemosho and Machame routes over 7 or 8 days are the best routes to climb Kilimanjaro if you want the best chance of summiting – excellent acclimatization and an easier summit night make these clear winners. And, because reaching the summit is the most important goal for most of our climbers, we declare this the best route to climb Kilimanjaro.

The most picturesque way to Mount Kilimanjaro

The Lemosho route, approaching from the west, has the best views, with breathtaking landscapes in all directions.

The most challenging route to summit Kilimanjaro

If you are looking for an adventure and a really unique wilderness experience the crater camp option is the best route to climb Kilimanjaro for you- less than 1 % of climbers get to do this and all our climbers who do it rave about it.

Kilimanjaro's quietest ascent route

If choosing to stay away from traffic is a top priority for you, the Rongai route is the best choice for your Kilimanjaro trek. However, be aware that the success rate would be lower.

Best Time to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

The months of January through early March, as well as June through October, are ideal for climbing Kilimanjaro. It provides a   comfortable hiking conditions because of the clear skies, great views, and sunshine, however, the weather has the potential to change dramatically.

Kilimanjaro can be climbed at any time of year, but some months are better than others. We recommend climbing Mount Kilimanjaro during the driest months of the year. We avoid the months of April and November because they are the rainiest, making the trails more dangerous.

01. Machame Route

The most popular route to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro these days is Machame route, and for good reason. This trail offers stunning views, a reasonable challenge, and plenty of time to acclimate, making it a good choice for those who have a bit of extra time in their schedule.

02. Lemosho Route

The Lemosho Route is mostly regarded as the most beautiful of all the Kilimanjaro routes, It is one of the newer routes on the mountain, and it shares a portion of the same path as the Machame route, but it has a few advantages over Machame that make it worthwhile to consider, especially for travelers with extra time.

03. Marangu Route

The Marangu Route is Mount Kilimanjaro’s oldest and most well-known trekking route. It offers trekkers the classic Kilimanjaro climbing experience, with sweeping views and a wonderful hiking adventure all the way to Uhuru Peak’s summit.

04. Rongai Route

The Rongai route climbs Mount Kilimanjaro from the mountain’s northeastern side, close to the Kenyan-Tanzanian border. The rongai route has managed to preserve its wild, natural feel. The only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north is the Rongai route.

05. Umbwe Route

The Umbwe Route is ideal for those seeking a true climbing challenge. It’s a quiet, little-traveled path that can be challenging and rewarding at the same time. If you want to test yourself on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro away from the crowds found on the more popular trails, this is the route to take.

06. Northern Circuit Route

Being the newest route up Mount Kilimanjaro and due to the fact that it combines all of the best features of the other routes into one fantastic hike, This arguably the best Route. If you’re looking for beautiful scenery, plenty of solitude, a healthy challenge, and the chance to see wildlife. This is the best Choice for you.
