  • Travel, climb and safari. All in only two weeks!
  • Africa’s highest peak and one of the Seven Summits
  • Veteran Kilimanjaro guides
  • Top-notch accommodation and services, we pride ourselves on it!

Climbers have long been attracted to the highest point in Africa (and highest freestanding mountain in the world) - Uhuru Peak on Kilimanjaro - which is perhaps one of the best known mountains of the world and can be reached by several easy to moderate routes.

Kilimanjaro is like an island, standing tall and sentinel surrounded by the hot, dry plains of Africa. It amazes all with its widely contrasting vegetation; from tropical rainforest to high arid moorlands, watched over by towering cliffs and glaciers.  It is the easiest of the Seven Summits and definitely the most romantic!

Adventure Consultants offer a variety of exciting ways to climb Kilimanjaro to satisfy your preferred approach.

This expedition features a smorgasbord of African culture and scenery, providing a fabulous excuse to visit this wild continent.

Any visit to Africa must include a Safari and our 4 day/3 night Safari tour takes in some of the world’s most unique game reserves such as the Tarangire and Serengeti National Parks, and Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Why AC?

We can very confidently say that our Kilimanjaro expedition options, are to the best of our knowledge, the very best on offer.
