Mountain Kilimanjaro straddles the border with Kenya, although the peaks is found within Tanzania where climbing adventures are offered via the 6 trails or walking trails to summit to the Kibo peak, never think that mountaineering on Kilimanjaro is possible via Kenya.

The less heavily trampled Machame Route, starting from the village of Machame and it has become popular over the recent years!

Don’t try to climb Kilimanjaro without a guide or without paying the proper fees. It’s very unlikely you’ll succeed and all you’re doing is freeloading – indeed, stealing isn’t too strong a word – from one of the poorest countries in the world. Yes, climbing Kilimanjaro is expensive. But the costs of maintaining a mountain that big are high. Besides, whatever price you pay, trust us, it’s worth it.

Baron von der Decken and Charles New After the missionaries came the mountaineers. In August 1861 Baron Carl
Claus von der Decken, a Hanoverian naturalist and traveler who had been residing in Zanzibar, accompanied by young English geologist Richard Thornton, himself an explorer of some renown who had accompanied (and been
sacked by) Livingstone during the latter’s exploration of the Zambezi, made the first serious attempt on  Kilimanjaro’s summit. Initially, despite an entourage of over fifty porters, a manservant for von der Decken and a personal slave for Thornton, their efforts proved to be rather dismal and they had to turn back after just three days due to bad weather, having reached the rather puny height of just 8200ft (2499m). Proceeding to the west side of the mountain, however, the pioneering baron did at least enjoy an unobstructed view of Kibo peak on the way.
