On this trekking ascent of Kil­i­man­jaro, one of the Sev­en Sum­mits, you will expe­ri­ence first class style the entire way. Our sel­dom-trav­eled route requires no tech­ni­cal expe­ri­ence and as a result of fine-tun­ing our itin­er­ary and strat­e­gy over 35 years, our suc­cess rate is high. More than 90% of all Moun­tain Mad­ness clients sum­mit Kil­i­man­jaro. Par­tic­i­pants need only to be in great phys­i­cal shape and have the desire to stand atop the roof of the Africa’. Cou­pled with our pri­vate camps and game view­ing safaris you will have the most mem­o­rable African moun­taineer­ing adven­ture imaginable.
