About Private Expeditions
Each year more and more people choose to climb Kilimanjaro with Private Expeditions. And when we ask them why they chose us, they nearly always say because of your great reviews.
So how do we consistently get great reviews?
The most important thing is that we run our own Kilimanjaro climbs to make sure you have an amazing experience. We do not sub-contract your safety and enjoyment to someone else. If you ask any of our competitors you will find this is pretty unique.
And because we specialise in high altitude trekking we really do know how to look after you safely on Kilimanjaro and give you the best chance of success.
Add in the fact that we have climbed all the routes on Mt Kilimanjaro ourselves and can provide you with first hand expert advice on planning your trip and you have the complete package.
Unlike the local Tanzanian operators we are ABTA bonded and fully insured so you also have no worries when you book with us.
And of course because we are an operator and you can book direct, with no middle-man, we are able to offer great value prices.
We hope you will give us the chance to help you climb Kilimanjaro safely!

To give our climbers' the best chance of summiting safely and having a really enjoyable climb we operate our own climbs with our own guides so we control every aspect of your trip. We don't just take bookings then sub-contract your safety and enjoyment to someone else. If you book with us you climb with us.The real benefit for you is that you have a much better chance to climb Kilimanjaro safely and successfully.
Planning a Kilimanjaro climb may seem daunting with lots of conflicting advice available but our advisers have climbed Kilimanjaro themselves and are able to provide you with first hand advice on all aspects of planning a climb. We've also got loads of important information available on our site, including advice on the best route to climb Kilimanjaro, advice Kilimanjaro training and plenty more.
Three styles of expedition
We offer three options to climb Kilimanjaro: open groups,private climbs and Kilimanjaro challenges for charity. Whichever you choose our prices are inclusive of everything you might want, except items of a personal nature, tips and flights. No hidden extras.
Private climbs are your own personal tailor-made adventure.Your choice of dates, route and options, your own dedicated team and as a result the highest success rate. Perfect for a group of friends or a charity group who want to climb Kilimanjaro. You can upgrade to a private climb from as little as £100 per person depending on the size of the group.
Open group climbs
Our open groups are great for those who want the company of others while they climb Kilimanjaro. Our group climbs start every Monday (June- October, December - March). They are limited to a maximum of 12 and are guaranteed to run with a minimum of 2 people. Particularly popular are our open full moon climbswhich run every month.
Kilimanjaro challenges are our approach to climbing Kilimanjaro for charity. We do not offer the complicated sponsor funded climbs, just great value, tailor-made challenges so that more of the money you raise goes to charity
So whether you want to climb Kilimanjaro for charity, as part of a group, or for a specific celebration such as a birthday or wedding anniversary, we can help you get it all organised.
We also have information about the various different things you can do after climbing Kilimanjaro. A Kilimanjaro climb is pretty exhausting, so you might just want to head home and recuperate, but whilst you're there you may want to take advantage of some of the other amazing experiences Tanzania has to offer, such as seeing the Big Five on safari or relaxing on Zanzibar's idyllic sandy beaches
