At 5895 meters high, Mt. Kilimanjaro stands in Tanzania as the highest peak on the African continent. With various different routes up the mountain, climbers have a fair chance of summiting the peak, as long as they are reasonable fit & in good health. The youngest person to reach Uhuru Peak, the summit, is a seven-year old boy. Another major attraction that Mt. Kilimanjaro offers is its four-seasons experience in the length of week, as climbers will make their way through a forest, a desert, and finally to the icy, snow-covered summit!
Marangue Route is the only one that offers huts as accommodation, while all the other routes will be tents at different campsites. Safari Infinity team provides our climbers with quality, durable tents and 3 seasons sleeping bag.
Mountain Staff & Fair Tourism
Safari Infinity is actively promoting fair tourism by being transparent about their mountain staffs' working conditions during their mountain expeditions.
- We ensure that our staffs are equipped with suitable & waterproof clothing
- We ensure that our staffs eat well & have access to water
- We ensure that our porters should not carry more than 25kg
(5kg for their personal gear, 20kg limit for client's luggage)
- We ensure that tips are distributed fairly to the mountain guides, porters & cooks
Zone 1) Farmland & Villages (800-1850m):
This is the region you will pass through before your climb on Day 1.
Zone 2) Tropical Forest (1850-2800m):
Due to cloud condensation, this makes it a very damp trail, yet an extremely spectacular one as you are literally walking through clouds and jungle-like atmosphere.
Zone 3) Heather (2800-4000m):
In this particular zone, due to the common clear skies, the day climbs are usually blessed with sunshine (as high as 30-40 oC), and at night the weather can be extremely cool (as low as below 0oC).
Zone 4) Desert (4000m to 5000m):
With a sparse annual rainfall in the region, you will find yourself surrounded by volcanic rocks, little signs of vegetation, glaciers and finally, a steep route ahead, leading up the summit.
Zone 5) Uhuru Peak (5000-5895m):
This last area you will pass through will mainly consist of ice fields, which makes it difficult, nonetheless exhilarating & challenging, as you're now on your way to reaching the highest mountain in the entire Africa!
