Climb Kilimanjaro with Goway

Goway is offering hikers, or more serious mountaineerers, the opportunity to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. A number of Goway’s staff, including president Bruce Hodge, have successfully reached the summit and are uniquely equipped to advise on the best routing, preparations and packing requirements. “Theoretically, any reasonably fit person can reach the top,”said Hodge. “They need to take their time, drink lots of water and ideally don’t do the trek immediately after a long-haul flight.”Hodge also recommends that climbers take a safari before, as this will help them acclimatize. A beach stay on Zanzibar would be a great place to relax afterwards. Goway offers four different routes. These include the Marangu route also known as the Coca-cola route as it is considered to be the easiest. It is also the busiest and it uses the same route for ascending and descending. The Machame route offers spectacular views and a minimum of six days hiking is recommended. Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. It’s located entirely in Tanzania, though the best views of the mountain are from Kenya’s Amboseli National Park. ([email protected])
