Look who made it to the top of Kilimanjaro this week!
At the foot of this page are links to our Kilimanjaro GPS waypoint files (.gdb). These waymarks for Kilimanjaro have been collected by us during our time on the mountain. By downloading them onto your computer and then uploading them onto your GPS unit, you should have a fairly decent plot of your trek.
A couple of companies have produced GPS maps of Kilimanjaro that you can download
onto your computer -
The other company providing online maps for Kilimanjaro is Tracks 4 Africa.
About the waypoints
These Kilimanjaro waypoints were saved in .gdb format using the Mapsource application that comes free with most Garmin units.
The format we have used for these waypoints is known as UTM; the map datum is WGS 84 (37M); you can change both of these on a Garmin GPS by going to ‘Units setup’ on the ‘Settings’ menu, then changing the position format and map datum as necessary.
Note that the ‘name’ of each Kilimanjaro waypoint is actually in two parts. The first part is a figure, and corresponds with the figure given to it in the book. The second part of the name refers to the map in our guidebook on which you will find the waymark.Where the waypoint features on more than one map, each relevant map number is given, separated by a slash (eg Map 5/24).
After the name is a comment -
Note that those on our Unique Rongai Route can email me for GPS waypoints of this route.
Any comments on these waypoints and their accuracy will be gratefully received. Thanks.
