Situated south of the equator – in Tanzania – at 19,340 feet (5,895m), Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest “free standing” mountain in the world. Spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for the successful trekker, as well as the satisfaction of conquering this mighty peak.

It is not for the faint-hearted – this will test you to your limits, mentally as well as physically. The main problems encountered are altitude sickness, which can be countered by use of medicines, and lack of oxygen. The standard route is a hike – no climbing as such. We have personally done the major routes, so can offer first hand advice.

Good preparation and advice, as well as good guides on the mountain, have given us an over 95% success rate (the average is 60%) – this type of thing is a “once in a lifetime” challenge and must not be taken lightly. We ensure that all our climbers have all the facts – medical list, equipment list, etc – long before they travel and this is probably the reason for our high success rate.

Any reasonably fit person who enjoys walking can reach the summit of Kilimanjaro.
