Kilimanjaro 

Kilimanjaro is a beautiful, non technical mountain that can be climbed by anyone with a fair condition, patience and some $$. It is relatively costly because of the high obligatory park fees and the porters and guides, but we offer the the best quality for great prices.
There are several routes up the mountains, you can see a graphical overview on the Kilimanjaro routes page, where you can see the different variations. As you can read on the Kili tips page we recommend to take (at least) one day extra on the mountain to acclimatize properly, but also we like you to visit more of Tanzania while you are there; so any combination with (walking) safari's we can organize. Just email us your request and we will help you with a trip of a lifetime! 


7summits.com offers tailor-made trips of the highest standards for prices far lower than most other group trips! Contact us with your wishes and we'll get you a good deal, check below for the standard pricelist of the 7summits.com Kilimanjaro trips, Safari tours and Mt Meru climbs, anything can be added to your choice.


On our extensive Kilimanjaro trips FAQ page you can read information about our booking process, what's included, tips to give and other useful and practical information. It also includes a warning about operators that offer higher as well as lower prices. Read more about our lead guide Bruce here.

Safari

It is really a shame to go to Africa without seeing more of it's beautiful nature and the wildlife, so we offer tailor-made safaris as well. Check out the Safari pages for example itineraries and park/lodging descriptions. You can use the safari for relaxing after your Kilimanjaro climb, but it is actually also a good idea to go on safari before your climb as it will help you acclimatize to the temperature, culture, time zone (very important for summit success!) and even a bit to the altitude as the parks are in the highlands.

(The included park fees will rise per July 1st; Safaris ending before July 1st will get a discount of $30 pppd!)
