You've come to the right place!
Every year, over 50,000 people just like you set foot in Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak.
Also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro is a place of myth and folklore. Located just 200 miles (325 km) from the equator, the mountain defies logic with its glaciated peak.
Climbing Kilimanjaro does not require any technical skills or special equipment. However, the challenge is not to be taken lightly. You need to understand what lies ahead. You have a seemingly endless number of questions. Rest assured, you will find the answers to all your questions here - at Ultimate Kilimanjaro, your Kilimanjaro climb specialist.
We are, quite simply, the #1 guiding service on the mountain, offering high quality guides and Kilimanjaro tours and services at a reasonable cost. That is why over 1,000 people climb with us annually, and why past clients refer us to their friends and family. Thousands of people have stood on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro with us. Won't you join us on the top of Africa?

AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
Ultimate Kilimanjaro had the pleasure of working with a documentary filmmaker who told the story of two friends, one Tanzanian and one American, who traveled to Tanzania to experience the ancient culture, the present-day poverty, and the eternal spirituality of his motherland. They climbed Kilimanjaro along the way.
The film, Kwanini: A Tanzania Journey, has already won many awards and acknowledgements at independent film festivals. There is currently an effort to bring the movie to widespread theatrical distribution, but your help is needed. Please help us support making this a reality.
