Q: I am travelling by myself, can I join an existing group? Or do you have fixed dates?
A: First of all, we do not have fixed dates.
All our trips are private, which means that we cannot add you to an existing group, as those groups expect to be travelling with just their own team and friends.
Sometimes groups are interested in having others with them, but we can not promise this beforehand.
You can post a message on the 7summits.com 'partners needed' board on the forum (or on one of the other climbing and hiking websites). That way you might be able to find someone who might be able to go with you.
Some of our groups have met this way and had a great trip together, even getting a group discount instead of paying extra for travelling solo.
We can set up a private (solo) Kilimanjaro trip for an extra $250 single supplement if you are coming alone.
If you can find some friends that want to jin your trip after all, then we will refund the single supplement.
PS: even when climbing alone, you are very likely to meet the same climbers on the way and in the camps for many days. So in effect you will be climbing together, though everybody will keep their own pace.
PPS: you will always have a guide, cook and porters with you, so even 'alone' is not really alone at all :-)
