Situated in Northern Tanzania and boasting four distinct ecological zones of montane forest, Hagenia, heathland and alpine desert, Kilimanjaro is one of the most beautiful and varied peaks on Earth. It stands at staggering 19,340 feet and is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro has five different, non-technical routes up the mountain that take between five and eight days. These routes are Marangu (Six days), Machame (Seven days), Shira (Eight days), Rongai (Six days) and Umbwe (five days). Each route has different characteristics, advantages and disadvantages so before you book make sure you speak to a Frontier expert.

Our two most commonly booked routes are the Marangu route and the Machame Route. The Maragu route requires very little introduction. Reputed to be the easiest of the available routes, it is without doubt the most comfortable in terms of facilities and the most convenient in terms of access. Also known as the Coca Cola Route because of the practicality, it is by far the most popular route with an estimated 70% of all climbers choosing the route.

The second most popular is Machame. This route’s reputation as one of the most scenic routes is entirely justified, with the sweeping views across the Massai Steppe to Meru and the impressive Barranco Valley praised by all who climb it.
