About Grand Traverse

The Grand Traverse Route is the most lavish route on Kilimanjaro – ideal if you value privacy and authentic wilderness away from the crowds. It offers stunning 360° degree views of the peak and afar into Tanzania and Kenya. It is also one of the easiest routes with a very high Kilimanjaro Success Rate.

Kilimanjaro's Grand Traverse Route takes trekkers to the three volcanoes that make up Mount Kilimanjaro, using lesser traveled, remote and scenic trails that traverse Kilimanjaro along the Northern Face. The route provides plenty of time to explore the less known features of Kilimanjaro, including Shark's Tooth and several caves along the route.  The route will also provide amble time to properly acclimatize prior to making the Kilimanjaro Climbing summit attempt.

Starting in the west along the Shira Route, the Grand Traverse then circumvents the peak on the northern slopes, approaches the summit from the east and descends in the south. Together with the Northern Circuit, the Grand Traverse is the only route that circumvents the peak on the northern slopes, hence enabling the authentic wilderness experience.

The biggest difference to the Northern Circuit is that climbers on the Grand Traverse get driven up to a fairly high altitude of 3,400 meters (11,200 feet) on their first day, along the old Shira evacuation route. This makes the Grand Traverse a shorter and less challenging variation, typically completed in 8 days.

Kilele Climb Luxury Kilimanjaro Climbing offer you the chance to scale this world famous giant in total comfort. All you need to carry on this luxury trek is a small day sack which offers you the best chance to reach the summit. Each day you will benefit from camps that have been professionally set up prior to your arrival by your private team of local porters. All amenities from dining tents, mess tents, to your own private tents will be at your disposal. Our luxury camps also feature a chemical 'toilet' tent unlike many other operators on the mountain.
