Climb Kilimanjaro with Team Kilimanjaro

So, you want to climb Kilimanjaro? Excellent! By visiting this site you’ve reached what we unreservedly believe to be the very best Kilimanjaro operators on the mountain.

We are an entirely unique Kilimanjaro trekking outfitter in the sense that we are able to offer a degree of customisation and operational control not possible elsewhere. This is because we are not merely agents and not merely ground handlers. Rather, Team Kilimanjaro offers seamless control of your whole expedition from the very first moment you email or call us, until you’re safely back on the plane home, having summited Kilimanjaro.

No agents. No middlemen.

With no reliance on agents, middlemen, or local handlers, with Team Kilimanjaro you don’t have to accept a one-size-fits-all solution. We will go to any lengths to ensure you get precisely what you want. Just as long as it’s legal.

Team Kilimanjaro is for everyone!

We’ve assisted a 5 year old to the summit, several quadriplegics and amputees, and have arranged a number of world record attempts on the mountain, some of which we hold ourselves. As such, we’re the obvious choice for families, small groups, young, old… er, pretty much everyone wanting to climb Kilimanjaro, frankly!

What Makes Team Kilimanjaro So Unique?

Our ethos, operational procedures, recruitment and training methods are very different to those of every other operator on Kilimanjaro.

TK: Bestselling Guide Author's Provider of Choice Since 2008

For the last 7 and half years, Team Kilimanjaro has continually been the Kilimanjaro climb operator of choice for Henry Stedman, author of the bestselling guide to Kilimanjaro.

Unique Routes

Not content with Kilimanjaro’s standard six official routes – which we feel do not promote adequate acclimatisation – we’ve designed our own unique variants that have the best summit prospects and least crowding. Ask us to tell you more about them.

Accurate Reporting

Uniquely, the majority of our mountain guides are equipped with smart phones which enable them to take photos of climbers and post them directly to our blog and Facebook page. So, friends and family can relax at home, knowing climbers are in safe hands.

Physical Conditioning

Team Kilimanjaro’s methods ensure that their climbers arrive in position to assault the summit, having enjoyed the best possible levels of hydration, nutrition and rest, and all while avoiding unnecessarily expensive and prolonged exposure to high altitude.
