Trek to Africa's Highest Peak

Kilimanjaro is one of Pat’s favorite mountains in the world. He has reached the summit over 65 times, leading more than 2000 people to the top with our experienced team over the last 30 years. His passion and knowledge make every expedition truly special.

Climbing Kilimanjaro offers a unique journey through five distinct ecosystems—from lush rainforests to an arctic summit. As the highest peak in Africa and one of the Seven Summits, it promises an enriching experience, not only in diverse terrains but also in cultural insights into Eastern Africa.

We are committed to fostering a supportive and inclusive environment during our climbs. Here are the key aspects of our approach to managing team dynamics:

  • Pacing: The climbing pace is carefully managed to accommodate the slowest team member. This ensures that everyone stays together, which is crucial for group cohesion and overall safety. We believe that climbing as a unified group enhances the experience and increases the chances of everyone reaching the summit successfully.

  • Team Cohesion: We encourage all team members to support one another throughout the journey. Our guides are experienced in facilitating positive group dynamics and will help maintain a spirit of cooperation and mutual support.

  • Safety and Success: By accommodating all team members and ensuring no one is left behind, we maximize both safety and summit success rates. This approach allows for a more enjoyable and less stressful experience for everyone involved.


We understand that climbing in a group setting can present unique challenges, but it also offers rewarding opportunities for teamwork and camaraderie.
