Leave us your email and/or phone number below and we will be in contact shortly to discuss the trip with you.
Watch what its like to trek with Follow Alice to the summit here:
“The summit is worth every tough step it takes, and it’s completely breath-taking to be the highest person on the African continent for a little while” Stephen Hemmings
Mount Kilimanjaro is actually a dormant volcano (don’t worry, its last major eruption was more than 360,000 years ago!) and is the highest mountain in Africa. Imagine welcoming in 2019 watching the sun rise 5,895m (19,341ft) above sea level on one of the world’s most iconic peaks! You will find the highest free standing mountain in the world in the Kilimanjaro National Park, Tanzania (‘free standing’ meaning it is not part of a mountain range). It is made up of three volcanos; Shira, Mawnzi and Kibo. The Uhuru summit, located on the Kibo volcano, is the second closest point on the earth to the sun. There are seven established routes to climb Kilimanjaro, and each route varies in length, difficulty and scenery. Find out about what Kilimanjaro routes we have chosen for our trips and why.
Climbing Kilimanjaro is like trekking through a nature documentary. The mountain contains 5 unique ecosystems and virtually every type of ecological system. These include cultivated land, rain forest, heath, moorland, alpine desert, and an arctic summit. As you climb you pass through undisturbed rainforest, witness unique lava towers and exotic animals, talk to the indigenous Chaga people, all the while walking above the clouds and looking down at the sprawling savanna.
A very different way to celebrate the New Year
Make 2018 a year to remember. We’ve carefully planned our itinerary so that we will get to the top of Africa on New Years Eve. Forget the loud fireworks, crowded clubs and drunken family members. Create your own celebrations this year by joining us on this unique adventure to the top of one of the worlds ‘Seven Summits’.
“Simply GREAT ! Great adventure, great group of people, great organisation, great memories. I would definitely recommend it.” Enrico Leonelli
