We are here to help you
We are six experienced climbers who have climbed all routes of Kilimanjaro and other seven summits over the years.

It is hard to pick a Kilimanjaro tour operation company that will perfectly organize your trip to the roof of Africa. We are here to help. Some of us currently reside in Tanzania doing environmental projects. Just like most of you, we scrapped the internet in search for information about Kilimanjaro. Having the questions was easier than attaining their answers. It was hard to make decision on whether to attempt the climb in the first place, and which operator to climb with. As there are many companies taking people to Kilimanjaro finding the best company was an overwhelming task. We visited countless websites and forums some with big names and some start-ups. We got so many opinions that made things even more complicated because now we were confused as very few details got cleared up. We created this web page to help you choose the best Kilimanjaro operator. First, you should understand your chances to make it to the top (summit) are super high if you choose a good tour operator. Yes, even your fitness level does not help as such. On Kilimanjaro, the guide makes all the difference and the guide is provided by a tour operator. A tour operator with great guides is the one delivering amazing Kilimanjaro experience. The guide is responsible for a number of tasks. Including - managing staff. He sets pace, decides when, where to rest, and when not to rest. He watches the supply of food. He makes sure all the mountain equipment functions. But most importantly, he keeps you safe. Without proper handling, organization, sharpness and professionalism Kilimanjaro can be very dangerous. Every yea people die while attempting to summit. Victims at points have nothing in common - old, young, male, female, very fit and obese. It can happen to anyone, everyone is invisible. Most death on Kilimanjaro is usually because of altitude sickness. Exposure and rock fall are as well the other reasons but not as much. Your Kilimanjaro guide has to be trained, sharp, brave and professional enough to keep you and your group from such dangers. If a dis-functioning guide in Paris makes a mistake the worst case scenario is lack of insight into French culture, while a poor guide on Kilimanjaro can bring about death!
