Did you know that over 30,000 trekkers come to Africa’s Mt. Kilimanjaro every year with dreams of reaching the summit? In 2016, Kilimanjaro Regional Commissioner Said Meck Sadiki announced a government initiative designed to protect the world’s second-largest mountain, and East Africa’s largest tourist attraction. Because it is a leading tourist attraction, bringing in nearly 17% of the national gross domestic product (GDP), the government wants to keep the quality of the area high, and tourists flowing in to see the most majestic and tallest mountain in Africa.
Now, with Zara Tours, environmentally conscious trekkers can help with the efforts to sustain the natural beauty of the mountain, while also giving back to the community and saving money with the Kili Clean Package. Hikers spend four or more days climbing towards the summit, and those who go specifically to clean the area, help to ensure the camp sites and surrounding areas are well cared for for years, and for the hikers to come.
Volunteers will hike either the 7-day Machame Route or the 4-day Marangu Route, taking in beauty only Mt. Kilimanjaro can provide, including glaciers and some of the most serene sunrises and sunsets. For the greatest success, hikers should expect to climb slowly to properly acclimate to the climate and altitude, which doesn’t always mean the shortest route. Being properly prepared for the weather and terrain, and using experienced guides will also increase your success rate.
