The Shira Route is a relatively gentle and incredibly scenic route to the Roof top of Africa (“Uhuru Peak” Uhuru a Swahili word which mean Liberation). Encompassing the Shira Plateau, this route provides breathtaking views of the African landscape below. Finally, the Western Breach Summit path is a more difficult route to the summit which incorporates some serious scrambling and climbing. It is thus generally favored by those individuals looking to add a bit of an extra challenge to their climbing experience.

How to reach there: Transfer from you hotel and drive from Moshi to Shira gate – 2 hours then you drive from the gate to near Simba campsite for 1 and half hours with our 4WD land cruiser or minibus.
