The Umbwe route has a well-deserved reputation of being the most challenging route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Approaching from the south, the Umbwe route is a short, steep and direct climb. After reaching Barranco Camp, the trail follows the southern circuit to the summit. The descent is done via the Mweka route. Umbwe is considered to be very difficult, taxing route - one that should only be attempted by strong hikers who are also confident of their ability to acclimatize to altitude.
We trusted Godfrey and the African Traits team for most of the transportation of 70 people, 2 day safaris, and a Kilimanjaro climb and they absolutely SMASHED it! All of the drivers, guides, porters that we talked with were very professional and helpful, and a special shoutout to our boy, Chico.

We went on a 4 day, 3 night private camping safari. African Traits was prompt to pick us up, and the check in process set up our safari well. Our driver was reserved but very informative when it came to the animals and knew all the places to find different species for us. Our cook was fantastic, and all the food was great!

Had a lovely experience doing a solo safari,the driver Francis and cook Barrack made it enjoyable,fun and a trip to remember. Great food and local dishes were freshly made by the cook. Francis knew all the details of the animals, saw the big 5 and he was an awesome, entertaining driver. As a solo female I felt safe and comfortable. The tent and mattress were also cosy. Amazing!!
