A 7 days Tanzania mountain climbing safari to Mt. Kilimanjaro via the Umbwe Route. Climbing the highest mountain of Africa is a challenge a real climber want to enjoy on the slopes of the Kilimanjaro – reaching the everlasting snow. You will be guided by experienced specialists with the best material.

The Umbwe Route
The Umbwe route is one of the shortest routes to the Southern Glaciers and the Western Breach. It is probably the most scenic, non-technical route on Kilimanjaro. It is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to higher altitude, but the rewards are plentiful. Fewer people, pristine forest and shorter walking distances make it a great option for fit hikers.
