The Roof of Africa
Conquer one of the Seven Summits.
It is said that, “the biggest temptation of life is to convert dreams into reality.” True enough, when it comes to bringing our life adventures to greater heights, mountains should not only be talked about but to be conquered. Standing at a towering 5,895m high, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Located in Kilimanjaro National Park in northern Tanzania, this snow-capped wonder is often referred to as “The Roof of Africa” and people travel from all over the world to conquer her.
At Magufwa, we want you to have a great experience and to get to the top in a safe way. Climbing Kili is not without risks and we leave it to the professionals to escort you up. We have partnered with local companies who do this everyday and who we trust to give you the best time. To save you the hassle of dealing with multiple tour operators, Magufwa is happy to arrange everything for you.
There are several established routes to trek to the glacier summit of Kili. In order for us to arrange the perfect trip for you, we need you to provide us your preferred dates and to choose any of the 6 Kilimanjaro trekking routes as listed below. Each route has its own advantages and disadvantages, so when selecting the route, make sure it is the appropriate route for your desires, physical ability, aptitude and comfort level as this will contribute to your overall summit success.
