SEE 2017 GROUP CLIMB DATES & PRICES
If your dates are not available above, we can arrange a private climb for you.
These climbs summit on/near a full moon
This climb summits on Christmas day
This climb summits on New Year's day

The arrival dates and departure dates are posted above, with the climb days in between (i.e., arrive in Moshi/Kilimanjaro Airport on January 6, climb from January 7 to January 14, depart on January 15).

All prices are in USD. Our 2018 groups are limited to 15 climbers. These climbs are ideal for solo climbers, couples or anyone who would like to share the Kilimanjaro experience with friendly, like-minded people from around the world. Our groups are typically comprised of a majority of Americans, with a 50% male/50% female split. However, nearly every group also has a substantial number of international participants from English speaking countries such as Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Group trips are guaranteed to depart, regardless of the number of climbers.

Private Kilimanjaro Climbs

For those who want to climb on different dates or routes than our group depatures, we offer private climbs. Private climbs are also for those who would like to keep the group size small to have a more intimate experience on the mountain. Climbers with children or special needs are required to book private climbs for increased individual attention from our guides.

We can organize private climbs on any route, for any length, on any dates, for any size group, subject to staff availability. We fill to capacity many months ahead of time during the high season, so reserve your dates as soon as possible.

There is a $200 per person discount for Kilimanjaro climbs during the low season (April, May and November).

Additionally, we do not operate Shira, Lemosho and Northern Circuit at this time because the rains prevent vehicle access to the trailheads.

Private Safaris

A wonderful way to relax after a Kilimanjaro climb is to enjoy a safari in Tanzania - the mecca of game viewing. All game drives are done in four wheel drive Toyota Land Cruisers with viewing roofs. Our safari accommodations include standard hotel lodges and permanent tented camps.

Sorry, but we do NOT have group safaris.
