Who can resist the allure of Africa’s iconic highest mountain? Mount Kilimanjaro is a tough old trek, at once demanding, rewarding and awe-inspiring. We offer all the main routes on the mountain (Marangu, Machame, Rhonga and Lemosho) to give a choice of budget and trek style.
It is true to say that a keen trekker isn't the best person to plan a once in a lifetime safari or Zanzibar beach holiday. So when it comes to post trek R&R we are in the unique position of having some of the most experienced safari specialists in the business in our team alongside our renowned Africa trekking specialists.
There is little doubt that one of the best ways to prepare for the altitude and physical demands of climbing Kilimanjaro is to train at altitude before your trek. Climb Mount Toubkal 4167m (possible in a long weekend from the UK) or trek in the Simien Mountains (3500m - 4500m) in the run up to your Kili climb and you will find Kili a lot easier.

Both our guides were fine, did a good job, walked at a good pace for our group. Kept a close eye on us on the last night and helped me keep going even when not feeling well. Only thing i would say is that they weren't overly friendly. Felt a bit like they spoke to us enough to sort of do their job and make conversation but sort of expected that they might be a bit more friendly and enthusiastic. Might have been due to the fact we were two girls though? Didn't really stop us enjoying it, just would have been nice! 4/5
Considering your on a mountain the food was good and there was a lot of it. Though this became a bit of a problem as we felt so much pressure to eat it, not once did we finish all the food that was provided, and felt bad about the waste. Perhaps the cook needs to be more open to changing the portions of food he cooks depending on how much people eat! 4/5
All the information from tourdust through booking was excellent. We had plenty of information to help decide the route and to prepare for the climb. Though we were advised to take water purifying tablets, but actually they already purified the water. And walking poles were an optional extra however we were advised they were essential on arrival and had to rent some. 5/5

Our guide, Frederick was excellent and very knowledgeable, definitely a 5. The meals were great and the quantity of food slightly overwhelming on occasion! The service and effort put into presentation far exceeded out expectations
