Climbing Kilimanjaro is not a thing for beginners. However, with some tips and tricks, the difficulty can be reduced a ton, and you’ll surely summit the mountain. In this climbing Kilimanjaro documentary, we take the Lemosho route, which turned out to be a great idea.
Our Bottom Line Up Front:
– Kilimanjaro cost – we paid $1800. Some western owned companies charge up to $5000. We honestly did not see a difference between a local budget company that we booked with vs one of the expensive companies. We had great food, great people, and really enjoyed it.
– In this video, you see the Lemosho route. It’s the newest of the routes, and takes 7-9 days (we did it in 7). Some routes are faster, and thus more affordable, but the success rate plummits to 25-30% for the 4-5 day hikes. Lemosho has about a 90% success rate and is considered by far the most scenic.
– The toilet sheds at each camp are disgusting. They are just holes in the ground. We paid an extra $50 per person for the private toilet and it will make your journey so much more enjoyable and comfortable – just spend the money and go for it.
Kilimanjaro is truly an awesome thing to do, a bucket list item, there’s nothing cooler than saying you’ve climbed one of the 7 peaks and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.
