Kilimanjaro holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

Kilimanjaro holidays showcase the highest free standing mountain in the world. There is no mountain range enveloping it because it is, in fact, a volcano. Bang in the middle of the Great Rift Valley, it erupted out of nowhere and created a massif with three separate volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira. You don’t need climbing skills, just good fitness levels and a lot of determination. And confidence is the main prerequisite for summiting Kili.

Kilimanjaro Climb, safari & Zanzibar holiday
Memorable parts? Too many to mention! Highlights - getting to the top of Kilimanjaro and Serengeti safari! Tips? Do your research. We tweaked our holiday quite a bit and the main aim was to climb Kilimanjaro - had we not researched and as such altered the original itinerary by adding an extra day - we would NOT have made it to the top - which would have soured the rest of the trip which was to go on safari and finish in Zanzibar. Local benefits? Yes - we had sixteen people... (more)Angie Koufou

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 £2679 - £3499 including UK 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

Some of the best experiences I am ever likely to have.... (more)Graeme Cooper
