Overview

This Kilimanjaro itinerary is a very successful trek with almost 100% of the climbers summiting. Explore East Africa is one of the few expedition companies using this route. With a direct access to the crater, this route is one of the less crowded. You will have the chance of sleeping in the crater at 18 500 ms, the view of the glacier is breath taking. The route has the added benefit of passing though the Shira Plateau World Heritage Site and some other pristine wilderness.

Our 9-day Western Approach Route utilizes the same daylight summit approach chosen by David Breashears for the IMAX film.  It’s a world-class trekking experience, with a high camp amidst towering glaciers at 18,750 ft., inside Kili’s dormant volcanic crater!

The summit is reached by the mountain’s least travelled route and is only 600 feet from our high camp.
