Kilimanjaro holidays

Kilimanjaro holidays

‘Kili’ is the highest mountain on the continent, standing at a (literally) breathtaking 5,895m high. Several routes cross its chilly barren slopes up to the ice fields and three volcanic cones at its summit – finally reaching its highest point, Uhuru or Kibu Peak. Some 23,000 people attempt to climb Kili each year, but it remains a formidable challenge and, ultimately – for those who do reach the roof of Africa – a rewarding one.

Lemosho Route Kilimanjaro Climb
Excellent experience but very tough. (more)Mair James
The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was of course the ascent of Kilimanjaro on summit day. It was exhilarating arriving at the peak after all the lead up to it and the views were fantastic. (more)Jane Walker
Getting to the summit of Kilimanjaro with all my friends - old and new was most memorable...Do it! And take the Lemosho route - it is the best one. 10/10. (more)Annika Ratcliffe
From £2599 - £3299 including UK flights
Kilimanjaro climb, Rongai route
Even the tipping ceremony was wonderful, but the last day of the trek was probably the best. Beautiful surroundings and walking easily down hill with new friends knowing that Kilimanjaro had been achieved. (more)Marleen James
The entire trip was truly a once in a lifetime adventure - every day was exciting... Fantastic! (more)Jasmin Roman
7/10...Yes my adventure benefited local people. (more)Mussarat Khan
From £2199 - £2829 including UK flights
Climb Kilimanjaro, Rongai Route
An amazing experience, as I celebrated my 50th birthday at the summit with Hashim, the guide that supported me throughout the summit night, ensuring my safety. I have some brilliant photographs and met some lovely people! (more)Anne Marshallsay
Reaching Uhuru Peak. This was most memorable. (more)Abdi Ali
Excellent. It was difficult to foresee exactly how things would be, but in general it was an enjoyable challenge and very rewarding in meeting other like minded people as well as the kind and hard working porters and guides. (more)Neil Robdale
From £1490 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro climb, Machame Route
Memorable parts? The joy and relief of reaching the top of kili, timed to perfection as the sun broke through the horizon. Tips? If you want a challenge this is the trip for you and do the 7 day your body will thank you for it. Local benefits? Yes, we brought money and employment to the area, the mountain set up was great, the only visible sign is where people had left rubbish on route. (more)Daniel Waller
From £1450 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro Shira Route climb
The highlight was the day we reached Uhuru Peak. What an unforgettable experience!!! (more)Emma Recchia
The most memorable part of the climb was probably the feeling of accomplishment when reaching the peak. I felt like I could accomplish anything in life now that I had made this trek successfully. (more)Kurtis Welton
From £1850 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro climb and Tanzania holiday
Memorable parts? Hiking to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro was a memorable (and, on summit day, very challenging) accomplishment. In the Serengeti we saw three male lions attempt to hunt a hartebeest, which was amazing, and an elephant scratch himself on a tree before he charged our vehicle (that got us to leave quickly!). Tips? The "Trip Details" document that the tour operator compiles for the tour has a ton of useful information both for planning the trip (e.g., detailed itinerary,... (more)Jennifer Tice
From £2999 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro Climb, Serengeti safari and Zanzibar
A highlight was the way the experience of safari, Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar combined to give a really enjoyable flavour of East Africa. (more)Mike Sage
Absolutely amazing - super balance of safari, mountain climbing and relaxing at the beach in one trip. Don't think it can be beaten! (more)Amy-Jane Valender
From £3949 - £4499 including UK flights
Climbing Kilimanjaro, Machame Route 7 days
The whole trip was wonderful. I was passionate about wanting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and got 2 friends to agree and with the added incentive of raising money for a charity...Just do it! It is an experience and if you like trekking it is absolutely fantastic....would love to do it again. (more)Chetana Parmar
Some of the best experiences I am ever likely to have.... (more)Graeme Cooper
Great holiday - I was travelling alone and have not done much walking before so was a little worried - the guides, office and porters were really supportive. Route was stunning - really good - can't fault it. Thanks !!! (more)Adam Dearnley
From US $1895 - US $2820 excluding flights
Shira route trek up Kilimanjaro
The highlight was reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro in the early morning sun. Super holiday - highly recommended to those who seek a bit of a challenge. (more)Sam Adams
The whole trip was fantastic. Most memorable parts include: Reaching the top and "Skiing" back down the scree! Brilliant food! Great company! (more)Sam Lewis
The most memorable part of the holiday was being on top of Kilimanjaro. It was so hard getting there but the beauty at the top made it worthwhile. I would give this holiday 4 stars. I had a brilliant time! (more)Rebecca Martin
From £2299 - £2752 including UK flights

From £1295 excluding flights
Your own group trip up Kilimanjaro
Memorable parts? The last night in the bar when we all made it. Tips? Leave more stuff back at the hotel before leaving for the climb. Beware you need to bring cash with you and let your bank know your travelling or they may stop your cash point card. Local benefits? Yes it did. Overall rating? 9 out of 10. (more)Brendan Hayes
From £1313 - £1713 excluding flights
Kilimanjaro lodge and campsite accommodation, Tanzania
Memorable parts? The most memorable part was drinking banana beer whilst talking politics with the locals in a bar in the village. But also memorable was seeing the snow capped peak of Kilimanjaro looming over the village as the clouds cleared. The walk to the waterfall was amazing too. I found it challenging as it’s a 5 hour walk and the valley is very steep but it’s a great feeling when you know you have accomplished it. Tips? Bring a Swahili phrase book; I kept forgetting the words... (more)Holly Foat
From US $20 - US $25 per person per night
