Testimonial

We take a very special route up the mountain via the Arrow Glacier, camping overnight in the crater of the mountain. Your view from your tent is the famous Furtwangler Glacier. We will also take you up to see the Ash Pit. There are very few operators that take this route due to sleeping high before our 1 hour trek to the top on summit day. It is the most stunningly beautiful hunk of rock that you will see in the world. It is daunting to stand and see it in all its glory out there on its own.

Our 7 day climb walks through 4 eco systems. You walk through lush rain forest and get to see some African wildlife, lowland moorlands, alpine desert and of course the artic summit. It can be warm under the forest canopy at the beginning of the climb and below freezing conditions at the higher altitudes. You sleep in mountaineering tents based on twin share. We take up our own private toilets. Mess tents for our meals. Chefs and porters and our guide ration is 1:2 Trekkers. We take emergency oxygen and helmets when climbing across the Arrow Glacier into the crater.
  
Like any challenge we take on in our lives the fitter and healthier you are the more you are going to enjoy the experience. At times we have to work hard to see Mother Nature’s beauty. People who wish to trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro are advised to undertake appropriate research and ensure that they are both properly equipped and physically capable. Though the climb is technically not as challenging as when climbing the high peaks of the Himalayas or Andes, the high elevation, low temperature, and occasional high winds make this a difficult and dangerous trek. Acclimatization is essential, and even the most experienced trekkers suffer some degree of altitude sickness.

Mount Kilimanjaro with its three volcanic cones, "Kibo", "Mawenzi", and "Shira", is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, about 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) from its base to 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. When standing on the summit you are on the roof of Africa.

Kilimanjaro is a large stratovolcano and is composed of three distinct volcanic cones: Kibo, the highest; Mawenzi at 5,149 metres (16,893 ft) and Shira, the shortest at 4,005 metres (13,140 ft) Mawenzi and Shira are extinct, while Kibo is dormant and could erupt again

The origin of the name "Kilimanjaro" is not precisely known, but a number of theories exist. European explorers had adopted the name by 1860 and reported that "Kilimanjaro" was the mountain's Kiswahili name. The 1907 edition of The Nuttall Encyclopædia also records the name of the mountain as "Kilima-Njaro"

Natural forests cover about 1,000 square kilometres (250,000 acres) on Kilimanjaro. In the foothill area maize, beans, and sunflowers (on the western side also wheat) are cultivated. Remnants of the former savanna vegetation with Acacia, Combretum, Terminalia and Grewia also occur. Between 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) and 1,800 metres (5,900 ft), coffee also appears as part of the "Chagga home gardens" agroforestry. Native vegetation at this altitude range is limited to inaccessible valleys and gorges and is completely different from vegetation at higher altitudes.

You do not need to be the fittest person on the planet to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, but yes you do need to be healthy and strong and determined. Climbing any mountain is challenging, most people who climb Kilimanjaro have never climbed before. It is a mountain, you are climbing “UP” every day.

You will experience altitude and your body will do strange things. Altitude stresses your body and mind. You may feel nauseas, you may have a thumping head ache.Listen to what we tell you on the mountain, there are ways to deal with all these systems. Our mantra is “Pole Pole” go slow in Swahili. We will also be making you drink ridiculous amounts of water. The rest is up to you. Train hard, be dedicated to your journey and we will get you to the top.

John Wallace & Family- Edinburgh Scotland

We have done a number of expeditions with Pam and her company PNG Trekking Adventures. Although based in Papua New Guinea she also operates expeditions abroad, Zimbabwe, Patagonia, Borneo and Kilimanjaro.

For my 50th birthday I bought together family and friends to climb Kilimanjaro with Pammie. Of course the trails she takes on any of her expeditions are off beat, you will never walk with hordes of other trekkers.

Her Tanzanian crew are professional, at all times attentive and nothing is too much trouble. For 10 trekkers on the mountain we had a crew of 45, 5 of which were guides. Everything was planned meticulously, the food, the tents, the mess tent with our director chairs and even down to the 2 toilets that were carried all the way up was fantastic.

Thank you once again Pammie for an amazing 8 days, you never disappoint and our adventures with you are always over and above what we expect. We have booked already for 2019 Torres del Paine trek in Patagonia.
