It’s legendary. The stuff of faraway dreams. A real adventure. And we know it’s on your bucket list!
At 5,895m / 19,341 ft, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world. And it’s an awesome adventure in the waiting.
Now, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro isn’t easy. It’s several days of uphill hiking at high altitude. Summit day in itself is a seemingly never-ending slog up in the dark and cold early morning, and while reaching the top is a huge emotional moment, it does mean a lloooonnng arduous, knee bashing walk back down, all in one shot!
If the above excites you more than it scares you, then this trip is definitely for you!
We’re going to put every chance on our side: we’ll be trekking the 8 day Lenosho route, which allows for a slower climb up and a much better altitude acclimatization schedule. The main reason for failure is going up too fast, and we’re definitely not going to take any chances!
Our local team of guides, porters and tent crew will ensure that our camp is always set up by the time we arrive, and we’re welcome with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea! We’ll be bunking up in the most comfortable tents and mattress possible. We’ll even have our own portable toilets so we’re not using the horrible ones at each camps!
But the best thing of all will be the cook & kitchen team, who will ensure we’re well fed with the best cuisine on the mountain, and all 100% plant-based to boot! No need to climb the mountain on rice and beans. We’ll be having delicious, creative and nutritious meals all the way up and down!
If you’re interested, do fill in our notification form to join the waiting list and be the first to be informed once this trip is released.
Do note that we are thinking of potentially adding a safari before the trek or a rest period at a nearby Zanzibar’s beach resort after. Or both. We’ll be asking you to give us your thoughts on this when filling up the form.

We are aiming for mid-August 2024. This is one of the best time to climb Kilimanjaro and we’ll aim to summit during the full moon!
