On board with fastjet from Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro
Check-in can be busy, so get to Julius Nyerere International Airport early to avoid rushing to catch your flight. Before you know it, you’ll be through security and have boarded the fastjet plane. Now you can relax in your seat, open a copy of fastjet Places Magazine and wait to be served by the friendly cabin crew. If you have booked a window seat, shortly after take-off take a look at the dazzling view of the Indian Ocean below you.
If you are interested in Tanzania’s national parks, you’ll be passing over Mkomazi National Park about midway into the 65-minute flight. Famous for its African wild dog and black rhinoceros, make time to visit it.
Kilimanjaro International Airport welcomes you
The wheels of the aircraft gently touch down at Kilimanjaro International Airport, after a short and pleasant flight. Built in 1971, the airport serves about a million passengers a year, half of which are international travellers.
As you disembark during the hot midday sun, you may wish to return to the cool, air-conditioned plane. But thoughts of the weather are quickly dwarfed by Africa’s highest mountain majestically rising into the sky in the distance. Your next thrilling adventure – the challenging climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro – awaits you.
Where can you stay near Mount Kilimanjaro?
Book an airport shuttle to take you to your accommodation near the mountain. There are about 100 hotels, and lodges to choose from in the city of Moshe, about 10 km from the southern border of Kilimanjaro National Park. From your hotel, take in the breath-taking views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro.
Take a drive through Kilimanjaro National Park
Revel in wild Africa. Declared a World Heritage site, the park is situated 300 km south of the equator. It covers the entire area of Mount Kilimanjaro above the tree line and the encompassing montane forest at 1820 m. Be sure to bring your camera and capture photos of the wildlife! You’ll find grey and red duikers, Cape buffaloes, blue monkeys, and leopards in the montane forest.
Climbing Kilimanjaro – a trek of a lifetime
With its glistening glaciers and shrouded in swirling, and ever-changing, clouds, summiting Mount Kilimanjaro is the experience of a lifetime. Now’s the time to take the plunge, and test you physical and mental prowess in this African adventure. Like a lone sentinel, Mt Kilimanjaro stands guard over the vast surrounding plains, beckoning all visitors to accept its challenge.
If this is your first time climbing the mountain, you will initially hike through mountain forest and giant heather. From here you will traverse moors and desert to finally reach the snow-capped dormant volcano Kibo. This is the highest point in Africa, a staggering 5895 m. The unforgettable views will forever be etched into your memory.
Can anyone go up Mt Kilimanjaro?
If you haven’t trained and prepared your body for the gruelling hike, we wouldn’t advise attempting the climb. And if you start to experience any symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) or altitude sickness, it’s best to return to base camp.
Which is the best route for you?
For starters, why not take the 7-day version of the Machame Route, which is the most popular. This has the highest success rate of climbers reaching the top. Camping all the way to the summit, your efforts will be richly rewarded. This route to the top is regarded as the most scenic and spectacular of all. You will experience the vastness of Shira Plateau, the astonishing grandeur of Lava Tower and the steep Barranco Wall. Travel around extinct volcano Kibo before starting your descent on the Mweka route.
