On average our mountain guides have made it to the summit over 100 times each. Very few local companies offer guides any training in part because they rely solely on freelancers. However, all our mountain and safari guides have taken a special course on issues related to high-altitude acclimatization process and they’re all internationally WAFA (Wilderness First Aid) Certified.

We organize about 200 climbs a year and use quality 4 season tents and other gear produced by high-tech brands. Our guides carry pulse oximeters and medical oxygen on every climb to predict and manage all signs of mountain sickness.

As the highest peak in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain in the entire world, Kili is home to a variety of ecosystems and microclimates. Everything from tropical forests to subzero alpine environments await up here.

Kilimanjaro is a beast of a mountain, but our skilled staff and dedicated support crews are always ready to help you get the best of it. Our team of porters carries all the equipment and supplies. Meals consist of local and international cuisine and our cooks can accommodate special requests.

DATES

Most of the companies have narrow number of starting dates of the climbs. That limits the travelers flexibility and not always convenient.

We are different in that approach and offer a vast variety of starting dates - almost every day - to fit your schedules and desires.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Preparation

Preparation

It’s a perfectly achievable for healthy travelers with a moderate degree of physical fitness. The best way to prepare is to hike and hill-walk wherever you can in the weeks leading up to your departure. You should be comfortable walking four to eight hours per day.

Vaccination & visa

Vaccination & visa

Single entry Visas can be obtained on arrival at the International Airports.
There are no compulsory vaccinations for Tanzania apart from the routine vaccinations imposed on you by Western medicine.

Acclimatization

Acclimatization

The air at the summit contains about half of the breathable oxygen most of us are used to at sea level. Everyone will handle the high altitude and thinner air differently, which is why we try to keep the ascent slow and steady.
