Our host for this adventure is Simon Mtuy, he has been our partner in Tanzania since 1998. The team of guides are exceptional. We would not want to climb with anyone else. This climb begins at Simon’s childhood home on the slopes of Kilimanjaro at Mbahe Farm House Cottages. Our first two nights are spent here to rest from our long journey, sort and review climb gear, be assessed for medical baselines and a short hike to the edge of Kilimanjaro National Park. Then on the next morning you set off for 8 days on the mountain hiking through several climate and ecozones to the summit.
The guide team will support both the fastest and slowest hiker. The intent is to get you to the summit fit and healthy, at your own pace and smiling all the way. We are offering an optional Pre or Post safari. The details of this safari extension are attached at the end after the climb description.

Wild Rainbow Africa Safaris endeavors to make the itinerary as accurate as possible, it should be considered as an approximate agenda of activities rather than a rigid schedule. Trip itineraries are subject to last-minute, and on-the-ground revision due to weather, trail conditions, government and local restrictions, animal movement and other reasons beyond our control. In addition, frequent reconnaissance of routes sometimes determines a better routing. We do our best to ascertain the most scenic and convenient route possible throughout our guest’s safari with us. We reserve the right to amend the stated itinerary in response to unexpected changes in local conditions.
