The Western Breach is a gap in the summit wall on the western side of Kibo that was caused by lava flow hundreds of thousands of years ago. It provides a challenging access point up to Uhuru Peak and can be incorporated in to various routes on Kilimanjaro. Our Western Breach ascent begins with an assault on the Umbwe Route and overall, this combination is the toughest Kilimanjaro Challenge.
Bike tour from the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, to Pare Mountains, Usambara Mountain and ends at the shores of the Indian Ocean in Pangani or Zanzibar.
The best time for cycling is: January – February and June – October. the route is incredible but very challenging with a trail which is mostly off-beaten.
This will give cyclists an opportunity to see some wild animals, real local life and culture as they pass across the remote villages that are rarely visited.
this ultimate challenge will give you a great cycling experience in Tanzania while ensuring value for money.
