Treks on Mount Kilimanjaro range from five to eight nights.
Longer treks tend to have the following advantages and disadvantages ...
+ significantly higher summit success rates
+ much better altitude acclimatisation
+ lower health risks
+ access to more remote and scenic locations
+ much lower trekker traffic on the first few days
- higher costs
- greater risk of simple fatigue
Seven night treks tend to best suit a wide range of relatively fit trekkers who are committed to making a serious attempt on the summit. They are also prepared to commit the necessary time and funds, but cannot quite stretch to the eight night options.
We offer the following seven night treks ...Shira 7Bp
... is a non-technical seven night private trek, one of our most popular options. It uses a very unusual variant on the routing, first pioneered by us in 2009, by which it manages to avoid major traffic for almost the whole of the first five days. It has an extraordinary summit success rate of 94% and exceptional traffic avoidance, especially for departures Mon/Tue/Wed. The price range is USD 2500-4400 depending on the specification level and the number of trekkers.Lemosho 7Ap
