This mountain is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, the highest mountain that can be climbed on foot, and the highest peak in Africa.

With increasing altitude, a very distinct range of zones are provided, from tropical rainforest to moorland, alpine desert, and finally to the polar conditions of the summit, it’s like walking from the equator to the pole in a week. It’s a journey that is truly extraordinary.
Our mid-range, high-quality treks on Mount Kilimanjaro are among the best available, and we have an unmatched safety record and an astounding 87% summit success rate.
We’d like to invite you to join us on one of the grandest adventures on the continent!

Understanding that your chances of having a safe and successful trek depend at least as much on how well you plan your trip as they do on how well you perform on the mountain is essential. Reading this page’s sections from top to bottom is the best thing you can do. It will take around an hour, but it should be time well spent.

Why trek with us

Reaching Uhuru Peak

On our suggested routes on Mount Kilimanjaro, we have a genuine proven summit success rate of 87%, which is truly exceptional.

According to official park statistics, the majority of operators on the mountain have success rates for summits that are below 50%, so trekking with us can essentially double your chances of doing so.

We have long since realized that offering treks that are engaging, difficult, dependable, comfortable, and enjoyable is the only way to achieve exceptional summit success rates.

The subsequent sections are all essential elements that result in these success rates.

Our Commitment

The variety of people who show up at Mount Kilimanjaro trialheads would astound you. People have actually shown up dressed in nothing more than t-shirts, tennis shoes, and plastic bags to carry their equipment.

If we want to provide excellent service, we must pre-select our trekkers. People who are serious and dedicated to climbing the mountain are what we’re looking for. You don’t need to be young or physically fit, but you do need to be passionate and determined.

The first part of the test is to make it through this entire blurb!

Having Fun While Doing it

Such incredible rates of summit success have been greatly influenced by increasing the enjoyment of a trek.

Recognizing that climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is difficult is important. It can actually be a true endurance test, and if you’re not with a good operator, it can quickly devolve into a dangerous and unpleasant experience.

We’ve worked incredibly hard over the years to increase the levels of guest satisfaction on the mountain, not by watering down the experience but merely by minimizing the needlessly unpleasant aspects of a trek, whether that’s stopping you from throwing up your way from camp to camp or just having staff who are enjoyable to be around.

We make special effort to pay attention to the details that help the trek stand out in the best possible ways.

The Dream Sereti Team

We’ve got a fantastic group of trekking teams.

We make a lot of effort to ensure that each team has the right mix of personalities, and our senior guides have extensive mountain experience—not it’s unusual for them to have summited mountains more than 100 times.

The crew is full of a variety of attractive people who get along well and give you a warm welcome. They will support you every step of the way while also keeping an eye on your health and welfare.

The majority of the time, your porters are so eager to see you that they head out in advance to secure the best spots at the various campgrounds and make sure everything is set up for your arrival. And always grinning.

Your Safety

It can be extremely dangerous to hike up Kilimanjaro.

Although we cannot entirely eliminate that risk, you can feel more at ease if you trek with us thanks to our unmatched safety record. We’ve had over 1000 trekkers, and we’ve never had an altitude sickness-related client loss.

When it comes to safety, our teams are so far ahead that our guides frequently have to step in to figuratively save the lives of trekkers with other companies.


We take pride in providing each group of trekkers with the best solution. Each trip is private and specifically designed to choose the timing, routing, specifications, and pacing to maximize your chances of having a fun and successful summit attempt.

Trek Basics

Mount Kilimanjaro Routes

Mount Kilimanjaro must be climbed using one of several predetermined routes. It’s crucial to pick the best route for your experience and level of fitness; we’ll talk more about this later.

Each of the routes we offer requires overnight camping, and all of our treks last either 5, 6, 7 or 8 nights on the mountain.

You will need to spend at least one night in a lodge before and after the trek (although two or more nights are preferable for acclimatization), totaling at least seven to ten nights in the country, not including any nights you spend traveling here and there. That’s before you’ve extended your trip with a safari (3–8 nights), a beach stay (3–10 nights), or other activities.

Although there is a small amount of hand-holding required scrambling on some of our trekking routes and there is the option to scree walk part of the descent, none of our routes require technical climbing or specialized mountain skills.


Depending on the route and group size, treks range in price from USD 1200 to USD 3650 per person, plus an additional USD 800-1200 for park fees.

You must also factor in the price of any personal items you wish to rent from us, such as walking sticks, down jackets, sleeping bags, and mats, etc (shared equipment like tents, food and cooking gear is all included).

After spending a week with your team, you will almost certainly want to pay the optional tips, which range from $150 to $300 per trekker.

Who Can Trek

Officially, the lower age limit is 10, but based on years of experience, we advise a lower age limit of 13 years. Some of us believe that the age of 16 might be a more appropriate standard because we are parents.

If any member of your group will be younger than 16 at the time of the ascent, kindly let us know when making an inquiry. If so, we may need to make special arrangements, most notably adding extra summit guides.

Please feel free to contact us for a chat. We frequently lead group treks for schools and have a lot of experience outfitting treks with younger people. If we have any reservations, we will be clear about them and may even advise against going on the trek.

Camping and Comfort

We camp on the mountain every night on all of our treks. The only route with huts is Marangu.

To successfully summit the mountain, one must remain comfortable at all times. All of our treks include wholesome food, high standards of sanitation, the option of mess tents with tables and chairs, and private restrooms.

During the booking process, you can adjust the comfort level to suit your requirements and price range.

Mount Kilimanjaro Addons

Many other incredible African experiences, such as a safari in the Serengeti and tropical beaches in Zanzibar, can easily be combined with a trek up Kilimanjaro.

Treking Seasons

The safety and success of your trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro depend entirely on the time of year you choose to visit.

Jan.–Feb. and Jul.–Oct. are the two main trekking seasons.

The mountain experiences its mildest and calmest weather during the months of January and February.

The Jul-Oct season is the best time to visit if you want to maximize your chances of seeing snow on the summit because it also typically has calm weather and little rainfall but is much colder.

A good weather window increases the likelihood of summit success by at least 25% for hikers.

Route Selection

On Kilimanjaro, picking the proper route is crucial.

Go for one of the longer 7 or 8 night treks, which offer better altitude acclimatization and scenic variety, if you’re very fit and confident in your ability to endure the rigors of camping out on the mountain for a week.

If you don’t feel very confident or fit, you should think about one of the shorter 5 or 6 night treks, which are a little easier and will increase your chances of summit success.

The six main options are briefly summarized here, listed in order of shortest to longest duration.

Rongai Route

Rongai is a five- or six-night non-technical private trek that is our most popular choice for clients who are less confident in their physical fitness, limited in time, or on a tight budget.

Depending on the trekkers and the level of specification, the price range is USD 1900–3500.
