For the achievement of a lifetime, come and summit Kilimanjaro!! It is quite simply, one of the most amazing feeling of accomplishment you will ever experience! Towering at an impressive 5895 meters (19,340 ft) above sea level, not only is it the world’s highest freestanding mountain in the world, it is also the highest point in the continent giving it the nickname of “Africa’s Roof”. While it is definitely a challenge, the great thing about Kilimanjaro is that is the only one of the 7 peaks that you don’t need to be an experienced mountaineer to make it to the top. We can safely say that doing this is one of the most beautiful and rewarding experiences you will ever have.
We believe that the quality of your experience is based on the people (your ANDA Dream Team) that are making sure you successfully summit Kilimanjaro. We practice ethical pricing with our climbs – which means that we don’t cut any corners, pay wages beyond the minimum standards set by the association, feed our porters and don’t overload them. Not only will you learn about the history of Kilimanjaro, the flora and fauna in the region but you’ll also get to know your Dream Team and the local Tanzania culture through stories (and sometimes a bit of song and dance).
There are numerous routes that will take you to Uhuru Peak, the highest point of Kilimanjaro. In general, the longer you have the more time you give your body to adjust and acclimatize up the mountain.

We are proud of our Ethical Pricing and happy to be 100% transparent with why the costs may seem high for trekking Kilimanjaro. The reality is that fees to enter Kilimanjaro, conservation fees etc are quite expensive. If you are being quoted less than $2000 per person to climb, the guides and porters are not getting paid the legal amount!
