2018 Kilimanjaro Climb Cost per Person

Are your travel decisions based on finding amazing trips at great value?A�We are often asked how we can be priced thousands of dollars less than some luxury KilimanjaroA�operators, many of whom do not even offer private climbs for the amount they charge. SomeA�companies — mostly large international organizations — charge $5,000+ to climb with them! We’re here to show you that you don’t need to pay that amount for an excellent international company, high quality equipment, and some of the most talented guides on the mountain.

Here is the real secret: Office and administrationA�costs and marketing areA�kept to a minimum so that the overall cost to you remains low and we are able to provide the best possible value and service. We also have formed a collaborative business partnership to get the best rates with hotels and equipment suppliers, and pass those on directly to you without theA�middle-man. Why pay $5,000 when you can hike with a safe, responsible and charitable organization for less?

Simon, a Pathlighter Adventure partner and a Kilimanjaro expert for 20 years, heads up our operations and ensuresA�that porters are treated and paid fairly, guides are A�trained and knowledgeable, equipment is properly maintained, and service is top notch.

All numbers quoted are in US Dollars, based on trail, number of days, and size of your group. These are private tours that you will share with your friends and family.A�Additional discounts may apply depending upon time of year.
