Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing via Northern Circuit 11 Days

Be one of the first to ascend the peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro by way of the new Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro route! For thousands of years, the imposing grandeur of Africa’s tallest mountain has captivated the human imagination. Now for the first time ever, Eco-Africa Climbing gives you the opportunity to experience the most recently opened route on Kilimanjaro. The incredible 9 Days Northern Circuit Kilimanjaro journey is the newest, longest, and most visually stunning trek available. The length of the climb lets you undergo gradual and complete acclimatization before reaching the summit. This unique feature gives the Northern Circuit the highest climb success rate out of all the routes up Kilimanjaro. On the way, you’ll survey spectacular scenery and glimpse untouched wildlife and wilderness. You’ll venture where few have gone before via secluded trails on this newly unlocked mountain route. The Northern Circuit is still a well-kept secret—hurry for the chance to be among its first pioneers!

Albert, United States

The tour we took with Eco-Africa climbing was actually one of our best experiences during our holiday. Frederick was a wonderful host - very helpful, very friendly and with his eco-african colleague and driver Freddie he gave us some Tanzanian memories we will never forget. He took us to local restaurants and bars, showed us Moshi and drove us to town whenever we needed to go. In the weekend he arranged a trip to Marangu. In the evening we cooked chagga (the local tribe) - food (pork with fried green bananas and salad) great to taste! and next days we went on a coffee-tour to see how you cultivated, dry and roast your own coffebeans, next we went to an underground chagga-cave and last we went to see a very beautiful waterfall! Everything was very well-arranged, and we will definitely recommend everyone to book their kilimanjaro trek, safari, or maybe just a day-tour with the Eco-african company! Read more

Cheng C., United States

My friend and I climbed the Kilimanjaro with Eco-Africa travel tours. They are very efficient and engaging, we were able to climb the day after we signed the contract. Also, the climbing was good as well. The guides, porters and cook were doing a wonderful job helping us make to the top. I would recommend using this tour agency for your travel to Kilimanjaro.
