Choosing to hike Kilimanjaro on a private climb allows you to tailor your trip according to your personal needs. You choose the dates, route and options, as well as your team; this means that private climbs tend to have the highest success rates when it comes to summiting.

This is a great option for groups of friends, colleagues or families; it is also a favourite with charity groups of varying sizes. You could even celebrate an engagement to your loved one, just the two of you, or book your honeymoon trip.

Or if your more of a solo traveller or setting out to accomplish a very personal goal, you can always go it alone.

Private climbs can consist of a minimum of one person to over 100 with your guides, cooks and porters dedicated to the welfare and safety of your group exclusively. Private departures also include pre- and post-trekking accommodation at the Sal Salinero Hotel in Moshi and portable chemical toilets on all the camping routes (not Marangu route)

Private climbs can depart on any day of the week. This is ideal if you have limited time or need to fit your Kilimanjaro route around fixed flight arrivals and departures
