We offer Private Expeditions for you to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.  This majestic mountain peaks at 5,895 m/ 19,341 ft above sea level, & rises in isolation from the coastal scrubland around it.

For a truely unique experience & challenge, we also offer:

  • Climb for Conservation or charity
  • Climbs for Corporate team-building exercises

We recommend a minimum of 7 days climbing to give you the best chance of making the summit, and at least 2 nights in Arusha pre-climb.
