Kilimanjaro Climbing Company

Why climb with us?

Our Services

Our goal at KCC is to cater for individuals, groups or organisations that wish to climb Kilimanjaro. We are based in Tanzania and the UK and have many years of experience organising mountain expeditions on Kilimanjaro. With us there is no such thing as a middle man. We do NOT outsource any part of your climb. We own both the U.K. and Tanzanian resources that are responsible for your adventure.

Our Ethos

The ethos of KCC is to be safe, ethical and environmentally sound when operating on Kilimanjaro. Our policies ensure that we operate as ethically as we can with regards to the local mountain staff and the environment.

Our Ethics

We take porter welfare very seriously. All our porters and cooking staff are paid above the standard rate. We make sure they are properly fed and appropriately equiped. All mountain staff are entitled to medical care. KCC will pay for any hospital treatment required by a member of staff resulting from an accident or illness received while on a KCC expedition. No member of the mountain staff will be asked to carry more than 15kg during an expedition (15kg group gear + 5kg personal gear).

Expert Guides & Safety

All our guides have been carefully selected and have each summited successfully over 180-250 times. We pay high wages so we can attract and hand pick staff with the best characters, skills and knowledge of Kilimanjaro. All our guides are fluent in English and are certified Wilderness First Responders to ensure your climb is safe and successful. On every Kilimanjaro trek we carry oxygen bottles and Gamov bags can be provided upon request. Daily health checks are administered on every climber with oximeters and stethoscopes.

Quality Mountain Equipment

KCC has an abundance of quality mountain equipment and employs some of the most experienced guides on Kilimanjaro. We provide tested and proven Four-Season-Expedition tents that are built for the toughest alpine conditions; Dining tents, tables, comfortable chairs for resting; kitchen tents for mountain cuisine and private portable toilet tents.

Tasty, nutritious food

Good food and plenty of drinking water are essential ingredients, both physically and psychologically, to make your climb rewarding. It goes without saying that your body will need plenty of food to compensate for the unusual physical effort in climbing. Our cooks have been professionally trained and are able to conjure up tasty and nutritious food for any dietary requirements.

The Environment

The environment is at the core of the Kilimanjaro Climbing Company’s ethos. We understand that the way we carry out our business operations has a direct and indirect impact on Kilimanjaro. KCC adheres to guidelines which have been set to protect natural resources, plants and animals.
