An experience to savor and enjoy, and remember for years afterwards. We firmly believe that with right guidance from us, virtually anyone is capable of reaching the summit.

Adventure Peaks has been sending clients up Kilimanjaro for 15 years with a very high degree of summit success. We won’t quote statistics here as soon as another trip completes the stats change – but rest assured we have an extremely good success rate.

Our three different routes up Kilimanjaro have been carefully chosen to suit different people’s requirements. Adventure Peaks believes it is not wise to spend any less than six days on the mountain for the simple fact that we want our clients to feel good both mentally and physically and to reach their goal – the ‘roof of Africa’. Each route we offer has its own quirks and we encourage you to check our website or contact our experienced staff to help you decide which route is perfect for you. Once you have booked, you will be required to complete a medical and previous experience form and if we feel you have made the wrong choice we will let you know.

What are the mains reasons for NOT reaching the summit?

  1. Choosing the wrong route
    Read all our information
    Speak to one of our experts to discuss your options
  1. Lack of preparation before the trip
    Up to you! The fitter you are before you start the better your chances of summit success. Good cardio-vascular fitness will defiantly benefit you as you climb higher and higher. If you take the escalator in preference to the stairs – then you are probably not ready to attempt Kilimanjaro!
  1. Not acclimatising to the altitude
    A grey area. No one can ever guarantee successful acclimatisation. Previous experience at altitude has proven to be beneficial, mainly because you know what to expect. The only effective way to train for altitude is to be at altitude. Once on the climb, drink a ridiculous amount of water, eat well and never rush!
  1. Falling ill during the trip
    Our experienced cooks will do their utmost to ensure high standards of hygiene so we don’t make you ill. Kilimanjaro is a harsh environment and at times water is scarce. You need to take personal responsibility with your personal hygiene and the cleanliness of your drinking water.
  1. Being ill before you start
    If you have been unfortunate to pick up an illness just before your trip then this will affect your progress. Recovery will be hampered by altitude as your body puts a lot of energy in to the acclimatisation process. Think carefully before you start. Visit your doctor and find out if you would be able to cancel on medical grounds and claim on your insurance – and have another go at a later date.
  1. The weather
    This is rarely a problem to be honest as we only offer the trips during the dry seasons.
