Why book a school or university Kilimanjaro climb with us

Safety is the highest priority on all our Kilimanjaro climbs and activities for young people. We maintain detailed risk assessments in line with the best international health and safety practices. Your guides to climbing Kilimanjaro are all trained in first aid and we have well-rehearsed evacuation procedures in case of emergency.

Helping groups summit Mount Kilimanjaro safely is central to everything we do and to give groups the very best chance of successfully climbing Kilimanjaro we directly control every aspect of climbs ourselves. This includes choosing every guide, selecting the very best kit and supervising all the food menus. We can do this as we are operators, not agents. We never sub-contract a group’s safety and enjoyment to someone else.

For each trip, we provide a bespoke detailed trip briefing document in pdf form with all the information students and parents need to plan their trip. This includes a detailed trip itinerary, equipment checklists, health advice and training advice.

All of the locations, accommodation and activities that we offer have been assessed for risk by a member of our senior management team. These formal appraisals have been made to ensure that you can be safe in the knowledge that every possible precaution has been taken to ensure your group’s safety and protection at all times. Our risk assessments are updated annually and reviewed with our insurers.

Any group leader for a school or university will need to complete their own risk assessment form. We can provide advice and help in completing this assessment for a Kilimanjaro climb

Our reputation for delivering high quality, safe and enjoyable climbs is second to none. Check out our testimonials to see what clients say.

Mount Kilimanjaro Routes operates to the highest standards of responsible travel. We are members of Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project, which works to ensure all porters are treated well: we support the Leave no Trace rules so that Kilimanjaro is not spoiled for future climbers; we make a donation to a local children’s home for every climber and we create well-paid employment in Tanzania.
