MOUNT KILIMANJARO CLIMBING GROUP 2021&2022

Climb Kilimanjaro with Eco-Africa Climbing – the best guide service on Mount Kilimanjaro. We have the best guides on the mountain, with high standards of safety and reliability. We specialize in small group climbs and private climbs at a reasonable cost. Not a cheap Kilimanjaro climb, but a great value for everything you need to have a safe, successful experience. We are among Kilimanjaro’s top operator. Won’t you join us on the summit?

Group climbs are great if you are traveling solo, are a couple, or just wish to experience the climbing Kilimanjaro with other travelers from around the world. These group climbs are scheduled during months that have the best weather and include acclimatization days for increased success rates.

Our groups are limited to only 10 climbers. We don’t believe in creating large trekking parties as it detracts from the experience. Keeping the party small creates an intimate setting on the mountain, but more importantly ensures proper attention for each and every climber. Group trips are guaranteed to depart, regardless of the number of climbers. Your trip will never be canceled, and you will never be asked to pay more, even if you are the only person booked on the climb.

We offer group climbs on the following routes

Machame Route.       Lemosho  Route.        Northern Circuit Route.

Marangu Route.     Rongai   Route.        Shira Route 

 

We climb Kilimanjaro every day of the year and can schedule a climb with just 2 days’ notice for any booking group size. However, many climbers – particularly those travelling solo – prefer to join others who have already booked. It is for this reason that we publish our pre-scheduled Kilimanjaro dates below.

Below are our pre-scheduled climbs which you are invited to join, where availability allows.

ETHICAL KILIMANJARO CLIMBS
We are doing ethical climbs and responsible Trekking; we believe the tourism industry has an obligation and a great opportunity to protect the world‟s natural habitats, cultural heritage sites and communities. We actively promote environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
We are not doing cheap Climb, cheap climb means we are doing tourism while exploiting our Porters who are the ones who make Kilimanjaro trek possible for the vast majority of climbers, and who do all the heavy lifting. Fair and ethical treatment of our porters (crew) is one of the important priorities of Eco-Africa Climbing when we do climb.
Eco-Africa Climbing is the Proud  Partner of  the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP). Please contact (info@kiliporters.org) to confirm this.
KPAP raises public awareness regarding the proper treatment of porters on Kilimanjaro and assists climbing companies with implementing procedures that ensure fair and ethical treatment of their porters.
Every of our climb is audited by KPAP to ensure crew members are provided proper salaries, tips, food, equipment and sleeping conditions.
