We are the only company in the world who send an international guide and doctor on all Kilimanjaro expeditions while keeping group sizes sustainably small. Established in 2007, we offer high altitude trekking and mountaineering in some of the most breath-taking locations around the world.
Kilimanjaro is not only Africa’s tallest mountain standing at 5,896m, but it is also the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro is in fact a huge crater known as Kibo and it is over 2km wide.
Our 12-day itinerary includes seven days of trekking on the Machame Trail. This time-frame allows for greater acclimatisation and increases the chance of a successful summit. This route is rich in biodiversity, you will experience both African wildlife and the snow and rock of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Unlike most companies who spend their last night before summiting in Barafu camp, we stay in Kosovo camp. Kosovo camp is a much quieter camp which is 120m higher and cuts an hour off our summit night! This trek is suitable for people with a good level of fitness. You do not need mountaineering experience to climb Kilimanjaro.
The international guide and doctor work in tandem with our incredible local team of guides and porters to deliver an exhilarating experience each and every day on the trail! The morning ritual of native song and dance gets the blood pumping in the early sunlight and will help you reach the top!
There’s also a ‘free-day’ at the end of your trip where you can get some R&R or go on Safari in Tarangire National Park.
