The exhilaration of reaching the summit!

Mount Kilimanjaro, at 5895 metres, is the highest mountain on the African continent. This snow-covered summit soars high above the plains of East Africa. There is nothing like the exhilaration of reaching the summit!

We have chosen to trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro using the Lemosho Route. The success rate of summiting for many trek companies is very low, because the route offered and time allocated is not sufficient.

Back Track has never had a trekker fail to summit due to poor acclimatisation. We have explored and travelled all routes to the summit over many years and Lemosho is our choice because –

• It is breathtakingly scenic

• It offers an excellent chance to acclimatise safely and sensibly. It is a long way to travel from Australia, so best you plan to give yourself every possible chance for success.

Normally the Kilimanjaro trek is done over eight days; Back Track takes nine days. We have added an extra acclimatisation day to maximise your chance of a successful summit bid. You will be well prepared and ready for your conquest of Kilimanjaro; it is a wonderful adventure and challenge.
