Have you ever wanted to challenge yourself to achieve something special or maybe you’ve set yourself a personal fitness goal? Then perhaps climbing Africa’s highest peak, the tallest free-standing mountain on the planet, is just the kind of thing you’ve been looking for!!
Our standard “Kilimanjaro Climb” package takes in 9-10 nights in Tanzania. We endeavour wherever possible, to include a one-day safari and a trip to an orphanage either side of the climb, subject to flight times, cost, and the condition of the group after the climb.
If you’re a group of 8 or more “creating your own trip” to climb Kilimanjaro, we can cater for your bespoke needs and go on the dates of your choosing. Just let us know what you’re after, and we’ll send you a quote.
We have a number of Kilimanjaro Climbs planned that anyone can add on to…
You can come as an individual or as a group of two or three friends. It’s up to you. Each climb has a maximum capacity of 12 plus leader, and it all works on a first-come-first-served basis. A £295 deposit is required to secure your place. We then have a payment structure that will allow you to settle the remaining balance in manageable instalments as the countdown to your climb begins!
Climbing Kilimanjaro also presents a unique opportunity to raise money for the charity of your choice. Making a big effort to raise money for charity can also benefit you personally, by off-setting some of the cost of your trip. On request, we can provide self-explanatory EEA sponsorship forms which can aide you in this process.
