Join us in December 2022
for an unforgettable climb of 
Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m)

CLIMB MT KILIMANJARO

ONE OF THE 7 SUMMITS

 

JOIN EVEREST ONE ON A JOURNEY TO THE ROOF OF AFRICA

If you’re wanting to take on an achievable, life-changing challenge, climbing the highest freestanding mountain in the world, then Kilimanjaro awaits.

 

To climb Kilimanjaro you don't need any previous climbing experience.  You will, however, need to be fit, have a positive mindset and sense of adventure and obviously the fitter you are, the more enjoyable it will be.

 

Joining a climb with Everest One gives you the best possible chance of achieving your goal.  

 

We have been climbing in high altitude environments, predominantly in the Himalayas, for the past 15 years, including summits of 8000m+ peaks and have a thorough, comprehensive knowledge of how the body adapts and performs in a high-altitude environment.

 

We advise and train you before and during the climb, monitor your health daily and take care of you every step of the way, allowing you to relax and truly appreciate this beautiful climbing experience.

 

Our record speaks for itself.

Everest One have been leading trips on Kilimanjaro for almost a decade, and have helped 100's of climbers reach the summit, boasting an industry high success rate above 96%.

 

This level of success does not come down to luck but more importantly careful planning and an expert knowledge of altitude.  

 

After years of climbing in the Himalayas, we researched the success rates on Kilimanjaro and were alarmed at the figures with less than half of all climbers reaching the summit.

 

So we sat down to modify and create our own itinerary, allowing our climbers to have more time and flexibility, thereby giving them the best chance to acclimatise and reach their goal without being rushed up the mountain.

 

Everest One only offer two options, climbing via the Rongai or Lemosho routes, which are longer, less crowded but offer a manageable schedule and greater experience.

Why spend all that money and time training to end up not enjoying the experience. 

 

There is never a 100% guarantee that you will reach the top, but when you join Everest One, you give yourself the best possible chance.

Why choose to go with Everest One? 

Everest One offer premium climbing experiences and Kilimanjaro is no exception. 

The Lemosho route is one of our two preferred options.  We do not lead trips on the heavily congested routes, as we believe they do not allow enough time or the same opportunity to enjoy the mountain.

 

You have trained hard to get here and spent money to get here, so why rush the experience.

With us, we plan to get you to the top (and down) safely.

 

Our Lemosho trip allows climbers more time to acclimatise, less crowds, stunning views and dramatic landscape transformation, as we traverse the mountain from the west.

 

You will take comfort in the fact that you will be led by a highly experienced expedition leader along with our team of local guides.

 

This trip is a great starting point for anyone who wants a challenging trek or experience their first taste of altitude.

 

With Everest One, our focus is to give you an unforgettable experience along with the best possible opportunity to stand on the highest point in Africa.

 

The combination of great trekking and amazing wildlife safaris make Mount Kilimanjaro and Tanzania an unforgettable destination.
