Mileage during the Trek
You should expect to be on the trail for four to six hours per day. Guides set a deliberately slow pace (“pole pole”, or “slowly, slowly”) in order to give clients adequate time to adapt to the thinning air.
To offer the best possible chance to reach Kilimanjaro summit, We have analyzed the routes each for excellence which allow our clients and teams sufficient time to acclimate to the change of altitude. In details kindly view the Kilimanjaro routes. No technical skills of our routes, only very short sections with steep drop offs. Your guides will help you pick the best path, For the most part; the trails are very steady, safe, Well-defined and of good quality.
We use mobile phones, walk talks to contact the office if there is an urgent problem and need of help. Sometimes contact camp for those who arrived as camp master if we need help along the way for the guests who need help.
