What is the Grand Traverse like?

The Grand Traverse is the most luxurious route to climb Kilimanjaro. It is ideal if you value privacy and authentic wilderness away from the crowds. It offers stunning 360° degree views of the peak. You’ll also be able to peer across into Tanzania and Kenya.

Starting in the west along the Shira Route, the Grand Traverse then circumvents the peak on the northern slopes. It approaches the summit from the east and descends in the south. This provides you with an authentic wilderness experience.

The biggest difference with 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 with the old Shira evacuation route. This makes it a shorter and less challenging variation.
