Mount Kilimanjaro
, located in Northeast Tanzania, is the highest walkable mountain in the world, the largest free-standing mountain in the world, the highest mountain in Africa and has the only snowfields on the equator.

A trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro is a magnificent and spectacular undertaking, one which ranks among the greatest outdoor challenges on the planet.

We are the leading provider of high quality treks on Kilimanjaro, with over 17,000 past customers, a genuine summit success rate of 91% on our recommended routes (section 3.2 below) and an exemplary safety record. We very much hope that you will choose us to help you trek the mountain.

A trek on Kilimanjaro typically spends 5 to 8 nights on the mountain, to which you need to add at least one night in a hotel either side, so 7 to 11 nights in total.

The best times of year to trek are Jul/Oct and Dec/Feb. Other times are generally to be avoided.

All of our treks are private, our whole operation is geared up to offer great value treks for small groups of guests.

A trek typically costs between USD 1700 and USD 3400 per person, depending on the route you choose, the number of people in your group and the specification level that you choose (section 7.7 below). That includes all park fees, hotels and transfers.

So long as you are reasonably fit and sufficiently focused, it should be possible for you to give yourself as high as a 90% chance of getting to the crater rim of Kilimanjaro just by getting the plan properly formulated.
