Duration: 11 Days
Climb to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro (5895m) and safari to Ngorongoro
Meeting date: 4th February 2019
Kilimanjaro, the “Mountain of Greatness”, is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. While you may have your own reasons for wanting to climb Kilimanjaro, one thing is common amongst all those who visit – the desire to stand on the highest peak of Africa. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a demanding, challenging feat. Yet, despite its immense height, Mount Kilimanjaro can be climbed successfully by any reasonably fit person. No technical skills are necessary, making Kilimanjaro the highest, most accessible, “walkable” mountain on the planet.
On your way up, you will traverse several different ecosystems – walking through rainforests as well as alpine meadows, through rocky ravines and past lunar landscapes to the spectacular summit of Africa’s highest peak. The towering snow-covered cone rising majestically from fertile green foothills is definitely something worth experiencing. For those still entirely unacquainted with the mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro is a volcano situated quite close to where Africa’s three main tectonic plates meet. This classic trek follows the most popular route to Mont Kilimanjaro and is the only one serviced by mountain huts that provide protection from the elements. This exhilarating six-day climb is fully supported by a team of experienced professional mountain guides and porters.

I enjoyed EST expeditions and made very good friends, who I have been in regular contact with ever since. I experienced and learned a lot during the two expeditions I went to with Extreme Summit Team. I appreciate the way in which Dragan does his job. His knowledge of the secrets of the Himalayas inspires confidence in each member of the expedition and my opinion is that he is capable to lead to the top of the mountain even people with modest mountaineering skills. I am always pleased to recommend EST team to all my colleagues who would like to experience the challenges of high mountain climbing
“I came to know Dragan and his extremist team somewhat too late. I had climbed and walked across the mountains for over thirty years (it is not just the air but the spirit of mountains), but never much farther than Mt. Durmitor and Mt. Prokletije and never higher than Mt. Olympus. For a long time I thought I could not go farther or higher until I met Dragan who is familiar with paths that lead far and beyond and high up in the air and joined him when I was sixty something, for the time being just to the Himalayas, the Andes, Mt. Atlas. Sounds incomplete, doesn’t it?
I was fortunate enough to be a member of three expeditions organized by EST: Island peak, Aconcagua and Cho Oyu. They are true professionals, good and likeable people who not only provide technical assistance but also offer spiritual development. It was an honor to meet Dragan, Miloš and Nina who made gravity have less of an effect on me.
