Who is the Best Operator for Climbing Kilimanjaro?


I climbed with Ultimate Kilimanjaro.

After all of my research, I chose to climb Kilimanjaro with Ultimate Kilimanjaro.

I was pleased that they treated their staff well, as supported by their membership in the Kilimanjaro Porter Assistance Project (KPAP) and the International Mountain Explorer Connection’s Partnership for Responsible Travel. My wallet was also pleased that they were a mid-level priced company who offered the excellence of a luxury operator.

Based in the United States, Ultimate Kilimanjaro was very easy to communicate with and was responsive to my queries. Their USA staff was knowledgeable given that they have personally climbed Kilimanjaro themselves.

But when you factor in their mid-level pricing, Ultimate Kilimanjaro is THE best Kilimanjaro operator.

Ultimate Kilimanjaro is well established and highly recommended.

Ultimate Kilimanjaro has been successfully guiding climbers on Kilimanjaro for more than 15 years.

Their reputation is great. They operate their treks at a very high standard that matches the services offered by their expensive counterparts. It’s quite remarkable that many filmmakers, senators, authors, journalists and celebrities, who can afford to climb with anyone, have chosen them to lead them to the top of Kilimanjaro.

The company has been recommended in travel books as a strong, reputable company and have a superb client satisfaction rate. Irrespective of price, Ultimate Kilimanjaro is well known as one of the best Kilimanjaro guide companies.

I had a wonderful experience with Ultimate Kilimanjaro.

We had 12 people in our party and everyone of us made it to the summit, a 100% success rate!

Our guides said this was typical – that they get their clients to the top almost 100% of the time. The average on the mountain for all operators is only about 50%! We could not have done it without our guides, who diligently helped us every step of the way. Needless to say, I was very impressed with the entire company and crew, which is why I can recommend them as your Kilimanjaro climb operator.

I am fully confident that they will take care of you as well as they took care of me.

I hope this site was helpful to you. Most of all, have a fun, safe climb. Kwaheri! ~E.M.
