Kilimanjaro trekking schedule: 2019 (to date)
The following table shows the schedule for public treks for 2019 so far along with the per person price to join each one. You notice that we give a range of prices for each trek. The first price is the one you’ll pay if you are booking for eight or more people. The second, higher price is the one you pay if there are only one or two people in your booking. (Basically, the more people you can get to trek with you, the cheaper the price will be!)
What if the dates on which I wish to trek are not listed in the table below?
If there are two or more of you, we can arrange a trek for whatever dates you want, and on whatever route you want – for the same price as if you had joined one of the scheduled treks below (and, again, if there are three or more of you it will actually be cheaper than the prices advertised below). Please note that, unless you specify that you want a private trek, we will try to add other trekkers to your party by advertising your climb on this page.

How to book
Please follow the following link to find out more about our simple booking process.
1) Dates: The dates in the list refer to the time you actually spend on the mountain and thus do not include the days you spend in Tanzania before and after your trek.
2) Prices: The prices listed are the ‘per person’ prices. The higher price is the one you’ll pay if there are just one or two people joining the trek. It is also the price if two people want a private trek (where they can choose the exact date they want to start their trek, and the route they wish to take on the mountain).
Discounts are available for three or more people (whether joining a trek or wanting a private trek of their own); the first figure is the lowest price you’ll pay, and refers to the cost if you’re booking for eight or more people.
3) Rates are subject to TANAPA Park Fee increases without significant prior notice.
4) These rates refer to a fully inclusive package with two nights accommodation on a B&B basis, airport transfers etc. You can find out exactly what is and isn’t included by visiting our Prices and What’s included page.
5) Don’t forget – for the answers to any questions not answered in this section – just send us an email!
* A super full moon is a full moon that occurs during the moon’s closest approach to Earth. For this reason, it will appear bigger and brighter than at other times. We have scheduled the summit night on these treks to coincide with the super full moon, so climbers can ascend to the top of the mountain under a brighter light than usual.
** Pioneer Full Circuit Umbwe Route trek On this trek we will be blazing our own route on the mountain, combining established paths in a unique way to create what we think is the best possible route on the mountain, taking into account the beauty, scenery and relative tranquillity of these paths over other, more established (and sometimes overcrowded) trails. Thanks to the altitude profile of the route, we also think that this new route will provide a higher success rate than the other trails, allowing more people to acclimatise safely and thus get to the top. As this is possibly the first time this route has been used by trekkers, you will be joined on the trek by ‘Mr Kilimanjaro’, Henry Stedman, director of Kili Experts and the author of the bestselling guide to the mountain.
