Shumba Safaris serves as an adventure of confidence that which is proudly aimed at clientele satisfaction on connecting Africa to explore with our esteemed clients. This is a 7 days, 6 nights hike plus 2 night hotel accommodation where we acclimatize and have our briefing about upcoming hiking tour, then also on our last day after the tour we will relax in the hotel for cool down before we take our flight back home.
OPTION 1- Shira Route
The Lemosho Route is a very beautiful and unspoilt route and sightings of wild game in the forest section is possible and one of the quieter routes up Kilimanjaro, this advantage however disappears when the route combines with the Machame route on the 3rd day of the hike. Hikers seeking a quiet route away from the crowds, the route is a superior option to the Rongai route. Unlike the Rongai the Lemosho route has the same excellent pro-acclimatization features of the Machame route, which it joins just before reaching Lava Tower.
OPTION 2-Rongai Route
The Rongai route ascents Kilimanjaro from the north-eastern side of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. This route retains a sense of unspoilt wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north. We enjoy Rongai route’s premier advantage of the quietest routes on the mountain. However the disadvantage of this route is that it has a long travel time to the starting point of the route. The route also becomes busier when it connects with the Marangu route just before reaching Kibo hut. When it is time to descend we climb down along the Marangu route as well, however you still sleep in tents, and do not use the A-frame huts of the Marangu route.
