When you book with us, you climb with us.

We operate and control every aspect of our own climbs. We don’t just take bookings then sub-contract your safety and enjoyment to someone else.
Kilimanjaro Trekking Routes — Local Kili Guides and Experts

There are multiple Kilimanjaro routes as the map above points out. The climb duration is typically related to your budget and physical fitness with 6 and 7 days along the Marangu and Machame routes being the most popular choices. At the bottom of the page you can see all of our different route options.

Complete flexibility in three distinct packages — pick the style that suits you best


Open climbs

Great if you want the company of other climbers. Our open groups are limited to 12 climbers and are all guaranteed to run. We have open climbs starting every Saturday and Monday, except in the rainy seasons.

Private climbs

For your own personal adventure. Your choice of dates, route and options; your own team and as a result the very highest success rate. Perfect for a family, a school group or a group of friends or business colleagues.

Charity challenges

Our unique approach to charity climbs on Kilimanjaro that give lots of unique benefits like no minimum fundraising, ultra-low deposits and totally tailor made climbs to fit in with your exact requirements.

And after your climb we can arrange a private safari to see the incredible wildebeest migration or Ngorongoro crater or a hotel for you to chill out on Zanzibar, a tropical paradise perfect for relaxing before flying home.

Our porters take care of you. So we take care of them.

Safari Heroes employs, empowers, and rewards local guides and porters

We exist to uplift the people that will take you to the top. Tanzania is among the poorest nations in the world with a per capita annual income of only 700 USD. Guides and porters are some of the least paid workers in our society. Many other trekking operators take advantage of this and pay their guides and porters very minimal wages (as little as 3 USD per day). We however exist to empower each other. Trust that we pay at least twice the average local salary from the fees you pay us without charging you more. Let us take you to the top and at the same time feel great about providing for those in need.
