Climb Kilimanjaro with TK!

We arrange Kilimanjaro climbs any day of the year for groups of any size, on any route; both private and open climbs.

Want to join other climbers? Check out our Kilimanjaro climb dates page. If our current dates don’t suit you we’ll build a new climb especially for you.

Once you’ve chosen your climb dates, if you can’t get cheap flights on the right days, we can easily adjust your climb.

There’s no need to wait until you’ve found flights before reserving your climb dates with TK! Reserve your dates today.

Kilimanjaro's Most Flexible Operator

Most Kilimanjaro websites belong to agents and middlemen, not operators. We’re different. Team Kilimanjaro actually manages every aspect of the local operation ourselves and doesn’t subcontract to a local tour operator. So every aspect of our expedition is completely flexible.

What this means is that if you’re unsure how many people will be in your group, what dates are going to work best for you, or which route your group wants to climb, and you now only have a hunch or rough idea about these things, it doesn’t matter!

We encourage you to go ahead and book based on your best guess, and once you’re in communication with your dedicated TK expedition coordinator, you can work out all the details and change your mind as often as you like on route, group size and climb dates.

So, if you’re ready to get in touch, please complete our contact form and we’ll get back to you very soon.

Need help choosing your equipment and clothing for Kilimanjaro?

Our recommendations are made carefully by our most senior staff, based on the experience of overseeing several thousand expeditions on Kilimanjaro!

  • We’ve created links to where we’ve found each product at the best price.
  • We also hire out some kit for climbers who a) need to minimise their luggage on flights and b) don’t plan to use the equipment again on other adventures and cannot justify buying good quality equipment for just a single use on Kilimanjaro.

Thinking About Climbing Kilimanjaro?

You’ve come to the right place! We are an entirely unique Kilimanjaro trekking outfitter, founded by mountaineers who have climbed throughout the world and who have frankly developed the most effective operational protocols of any operator on Kilimanjaro.

We are able to offer a degree of customisation and control not possible elsewhere, using unique routes and methods of acclimatisation that are unique to Team Kilimanjaro.

These measures afford you the greatest possible likelihood of reaching Kilimanjaro’s summit in the best state of health and well-being possible. Our peerless knowledge and familiarity of Kilimanjaro results from the fact that we are not merely agents and not merely ground handlers, but actually specialise exclusively in climbing Kilimanjaro.

Team Kilimanjaro offers seamless control of your whole expedition – with no aspect being outsourced or delegated – from the very first moment you email or call us, until you’re safely back on the plane home, having successfully completed your Kilimanjaro climb, while having made excellent friendships that we believe will last a lifetime.

Climb Kilimanjaro Without the Middleman

With no reliance on agents, middlemen, or local handlers, climbing Kilimanjaro with Team Kilimanjaro means that you don’t have to accept a one-size-fits-all solution. We will go to any lengths possible to ensure that you get precisely what you want, and are frequently approached by people that have become frustrated with other companies being too inexperienced to serve them, either because the climb group are senior in years, have challenging medical conditions, or are climbing with young children – all of which scenarios we are very well equipped to take in our stride.

TK – The Choice for Families on Kilimanjaro

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 – pretty much everyone wanting to climb Kilimanjaro!

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.

What Makes Team Kilimanjaro So Unique

TK – Bestselling Author’s Provider of Choice Since 2008

For the last 8 years, Team Kilimanjaro has continually been the Kilimanjaro climb operator of choice for Henry Stedman, discerning author of the bestselling guide to Kilimanjaro.

What the trekking really meant to me was the incredible support from the TK team; it was their kindness and gentle encouragement, their absolute professionalism and expertise…..

it’s not the rocks and the ice, but the kindness and humanity that I am left with after this trip.

I went to Kilimanjaro for the landscape and adventure – and I came back with the people in my heart.

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.
