Mt Kilimanjaro provides a safe-haven for many wild animals. The mountain forest area is inhabited by elephants, buffalos, elands, blue monkeys, and black and white colobus monkeys. Above »the tree line« the most frequently encountered animals include grey duikers and elands as well as bushbucks and red duikers. Birds can be seen at higher altitudes, but conditions near the peak are too harsh for any animal to endure on a permanent basis.

Here are presented the standard Mt. Kilimanjaro Londorossi / Lemosho / Shira Treks, which follow the same route but differ in the number of days.

Shira Route offers an option passing the glacier where additional climbing equipment needed. We operate an easier option without passing the glacier (therefore, no climbing equipment is needed), where Shira Route connects to Machame-Mweka Route after Shira Camp.

Success rate of summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest on this route, being the longest in distance and thus helping your body to acclimatize best to the high altitude.

Accommodation is in tents. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is a serious attempt and proper acclimatization is important. An extra day for acclimatization in Karanga camp will increase your chances of summiting the mountain.

Combine your trek with a game drive through the amazing West Kilimanjaro savannah, or with other parks and reserves within Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit.
