Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It has three volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world: 5,895 metres above sea level and about 4,900 metres above its plateau base.
If climbing mountains is your passion, then the Kilimanjaro challenge will take your breath away. Rising to 19,340 ft., it is the tallest free standing mountain in the world.
There are seven established routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro – Marangu, Machame, Lemosho, Shira, Rongai, Northern Circuit and Umbwe. The Marangu, Machame, and Umbwe routes all approach from the south of the mountain (Mweka is used only for descent).
One of my best friend and I planned this trip to Tanzania. Octavian was absolutely amazing in helping us get the trip set up exactly how we wanted and it was a dream come true. Our trekking guides, Richard and Ramma made the hike a ton of fun and were super motivating the entire time. Their whole crew was nothing short of perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better trekking crew to be on that journey with!
After the trek we went on a safari through Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Our guide Laurent and Eddy [ chef ] really took in to consideration what we wanted to see and what we liked to eat. Laurent made sure we saw as many of our favorite animals as possible and helped to find the animals that had babies with them because he knew we enjoyed seeing them. Eddy’s cooking was among the best of the best. Everything was delicious and flavorful.

A day to spare in Kili. What a great adventure! The drive up just over an hour. Although we took longer as bought biscuits and treats along the way to give to the beautiful children along the way. Octavian was so patient and happy to help. A great picnic lunch was arranged complete with table, table cloth, chairs & napkins. The springs were not hot yet not cold but so clear and refreshing. The little fish nibbling at your legs & feet in certain parts was weird but a great experience.
Had a few goes on the rope swing to complete our adventure. Take a towel and enjoy!
I would highly recommend Octavian and OCLAA as they went above & beyond to make our day special. Thank you.
