Title: Kilimanjaro - without a Climbing Company?
Post by: Daniel on Aug 27 2004, 11:36
I have looked at about 30 different Kilimanjaro climbing companies, but have not yet found what I am looking for.  I was so happy when i found this site, as 7summits seemed perfect.  However when I contacted them I found they were away till October!

I am wishing to climb in January 2005, with a group of 3 others.  We are all fit, but without climbing experience and were thinking of doing the Lemosho (Shira) route.

Does anyone know if it is possible to hire guides once you get to Tanzanea?  Or does anyone know about a cheap climbing company which can offer climbs at this short notice?
Thanks, Daniel
