Join us for an unforgettable hiking adventure on Mount Kilimanjaro! Known as “the Roof of Africa” and towering over its surrounding valleys at an astounding elevation of 19,340 feet, Kilimanjaro is one of the “7 Summits” of the world!
At Wildland, our approach is to get our guests ‘off the beaten path’ for a fuller, more novel experience of the world’s wilderness destinations. On this trip we follow the Rongai Route which provides wonderful solitude and exposes our guests to different environments and views of the mountain before merging with the more popular Marangu route. Trekking Kilimanjaro requires no technical ability, just hiking, while the main challenge is the elevation. We have created the ideal 10-day itinerary for optimal acclimatization and a high success rate of reaching the summit.
After our Kilimanjaro hike, we provide the option for an add-on Wildlife Safari and Cultural Tour. The Wild Africa Safari visits the Maasai, Datoga and Hadzabe tribes and Wildlife Safaris in Tanzania’s famous Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro National Parks.
*Itinerary Note: Wildland Trekking stands alone in providing a complete experience on Kilimanjaro. We have a well-tested acclimatization process to increase your chances of summiting. Your Kilimanjaro itinerary is not just a climb of the mountain but also includes an extra rest day after your travels in Tanzania to experience the local culture. Many companies economize by getting you in and out as quickly as possible, and that is the opposite of the Wildland approach.

SOLITUDE LEVEL 3
1 least solitude, 5 most solitude
We rate this Kilimanjaro hike a solitude 3. You can expect hours of solitude at a time while hiking.
For our Kilimanjaro Trek you will need to arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (near Moshi, Tanzania, airport code JRO) on the day the trip begins, no later than 3 P.M. Your guide will rendezvous with you at the airport and transport you to our hotel for the first 2 nights, Kilimanjaro Wonders Hotel. The shuttle from the airport to the resort is usually 45 minutes-1 hour. Your return flight should be scheduled for the final day of the tour after 9 A.M.
Flights to and from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) are the guest’s responsibility. Multiple airlines operate connecting flights into JRO, but we recommend connecting through Amsterdam or Qatar. Most international airports in the U.S., Australia, Canada and Europe have flights that fly to these five connecting cities. The total travel time varies from 14 to 30 hours depending on the origin and number and duration of layovers.
Please Note: We recommend not flying with Kenya Airways because the connecting flight from Nairobi is often changed or cancelled, and they have a poor track record with losing luggage.
