Climbing Kilimanjaro with Africa Exclusive

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a Tanzania safari with a difference! As long as you have a reasonable level of fitness and healthy respiratory system you can make the climb part of your African holiday.

At 19, 340 feet, Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and getting to the top can seem like quite a challenge! Surprisingly though, the ascent is more of a walk than a climb and is certainly achievable if you’re determined to reach the very top.

At Africa Exclusive we make sure all our clients use the very best route possible; that means we make sure you’re not constantly walking through crowds and that you have superb views along the way! We have a variety of attractive routes to choose from, including the Lemosho Route, the Rongau Route the Machame Route. Generally speaking these take a little longer, around six to seven days but they are also incredibly scenic and very interesting.

As you pass through gorges and ridgelines you’ll be accompanied an experienced guide as well as incredibly fit and cheerful porters who ensure your stay is entirely comfortable. They’ll walk ahead of you setting up a fantastic private camp and preparing a tasty hot meal ready for your arrival!

Luxury safari pricing guide

We aim to provide you with your ideal holiday, individually designed just for you and expertly organised. When you book with us you receive this perfectly designed holiday, travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation of the trip, ATOL financial protection and our 25 years’ experience. Because we have excellent confidential rates with lodges and airlines, the price of your holiday will be generally the same as you would pay were you to somehow book all the lodges, transfers and flights yourself.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.

Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
