We have worked with celebrities, filmmakers, senators, ambassadors, authors, and journalists.

- Climbs for small parties. The best way to climb Mount Kilimanjaro is in a small group. We do not believe in organizing large trekking parties, as it detracts from the experience. Our goal is to create the optimal conditions for a safe, successful climb. The small group size creates an intimate setting on the mountain but more importantly ensures that each climber will receive proper attention.
- Safety is the priority. It is our top priority to keep you safe, which is why we are focused on safety at Ultimate Kilimanjaro. We perform regular health checks on all climbers, and our guides are prepared to prevent, detect, and treat altitude sickness. We provide rescue oxygen on every climb and have emergency evacuation plans in place.
- Camping Gear of the highest quality. To keep climbers as comfortable as possible while outdoors, we only use high-quality camping equipment. Designed for the rigors of Kilimanjaro, Mountain Hardwear tents are warm, waterproof, and spacious. All clients are provided with thick foam sleeping pads. Mountain Hardwear sleeping bags rated at -30F/-30C are available for rent.
- Meals that are delicious. Food and drinks are provided on the mountain. Our chefs prepare delicious meals using fresh, local ingredients. Climbers’ meals are nutritious and calorie-dense, designed to provide energy. Climbers are provided with adequate amounts of clean water throughout the trek. We also provide for any special dietary requirements.
- The best routes. Kilimanjaro’s best routes are the focus of Ultimate Kilimanjaro. By having many routes to choose from, we avoid trails that are very crowded, less scenic, and have poor acclimatization profiles. Most of our routes combine scenic beauty, low foot traffic, and high success rates. Our clients have the best chance of reaching the summit and having a good time doing it this way.
- Climbing in groups and privately. We offer group climbs on our favorite routes for those traveling alone or wanting the company of others. The climbs avoid the rainy season, include acclimatization days, and are limited to only 12 climbers. We can also arrange private climbs on any route, for any group size, on any date.
- Welfare for Porters. The welfare of our porters is very important to us, and we do everything we can to ensure that they are treated well. We comply with all established guidelines for porter wages and welfare as a partner company of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP). Porters are provided with proper food and shelter, and their loads are restricted to reasonable weights.
- Leave No Trace. Our organization is a member of Leave No Trace, an organization dedicated to enjoying the outdoors responsibly. We practice Leave No Trace ethics with our guides and porters so that everyone can enjoy a clean, litter-free environment on one of Africa’s most majestic landscapes.
