Before you embark on your trekking adventure, you will meet with our Trekking Operations Manager for an extensive briefing. Route, safety measures and physical condition issues will be discussed in details and you have enough time to ask any remaining questions. Your trekking gear will be inspected to ensure that you have everything you need to be safe and contented. If you are missing any gear, you can rent it from us.
During your climb, you only carry your backpack with essentials such as water for the day’s hike. Our expert porters will carry all equipment, food and additional luggage – they are tough climbers and the true heroes of the mountain.
Our permanent mountain guides will lead the way. They are accountable for your safety and will support you and lend a helping hand, but also call the climb off due to weather, altitude sickness or injury, if necessary. Your safety is supreme to us. Most of our mountain guides have been part of our team for many years, been up Kilimanjaro hundreds times and all receive regular trainings. You are in safe hands.
Our cooks are marvel workers. With simple gas cookers, they conjure up 3-course feasts, hot drinks and snacks to revive and nurture you when you need it most. Drinking water comes from mountain streams and is boiled before you drink it.
On most routes, you will sleep in high-quality two-person tents. The tents will be pitched and taken down by our team of porters. Your only concentration is getting to the top, one step at a time. When you arrive at camp after a long day’s hike, your tent will pinched already waiting for you. Our equipment are classic and are inspected and cleaned frequently by our gear team in Arusha. While there are no showers on the camping routes, you will be provided with a bowl of hot water in the morning to start the day fresh. Climbing Kilimanjaro via the Marangu Route, you will overnight in mountain huts.
