Group climbs are great if you are traveling solo, or just wish to experience Mount Kilimanjaro climb with other travelers from around the world.
All group climbs are guaranteed to depart regardless of the number of participants.
Your trip will never be canceled, and you will never be asked to pay more, even if you are the only person booked on this climb.
We climb Mount Kilimanjaro every day of the year and we can schedule a climb with just 2 days’ notice for any booking group size. However, many climbers – particularly those traveling solo – prefer to join others who have already booked. It is for this reason that we publish our pre-scheduled Mount Kilimanjaro climbing dates below.
Normally March, April, and May are the months with long rains and should be avoided.
November is usually short rains but it does not often rain all the days so Climbing is possible.
The best Months for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro are January, February and also August and September.
July can be colder and November to December can be wet.
January to February is the warmest months, almost clear of clouds each evening and morning.
The success rates with our guides are outstanding compared to the overall success rates for all climbers who attempt to reach the top.
Our prices for Kilimanjaro climbs are competitive and offer a great value of your money.
We guarantee to offer you good prices for a high-quality climb.
We do not cut costs by paying porters and guides low salaries and we do not cut corners by leaving out essential things like private portable chemical flush toilets and summit emergency oxygen.
It is sometimes difficult for our clients to understand why there is such a difference between Kilimanjaro operators when it comes to pricing. When comparing prices of Kilimanjaro operators, many clients only see the bottom line cost. There are things you pay for that you may observe directly, such as your guides, porters, food, and equipment. However, there are many things that you may not observe that will indirectly affect the overall quality of your climb.
