Take an adventure One Step Beyond to climb Kilimanjaro

Private Expeditions develops new routes for classic climb

When mountaineers come to climb Kilimanjaro they seek to stand atop the roof of Africa. As one of the world’s 7 Summits, it has begun drawing thousands of people to its most popular routes yearly. The annual number of attempts is around 20,000. The high traffic on the primary routes has left something to be desired, and Private Expeditions has an answer.

Private Expeditions, which specializes in high altitude trekking, offers climbers new, exciting Kilimanjaro route options for every skill level. The company doesn’t just want you to climb Kilimanjaro, they want you to go One Step Beyond.

Private Expeditions has developed new, challenging routes, and making climbing attempts more accessible to novices by providing comfort. There’s going to be something for you, and it’s going to be a special challenge.

Route options now include a spectacular circumnavigation of Kilimanjaro by the Northern Circuit and the option to sleep on the roof of Africa in Crater camp. The Northern circuit takes 10 days, offering views of the mountain from every aspect. Because of the great acclimatization process it has a high success rate.

You do, of course, have the opportunity to take your adventure up a notch. In the higher altitudes the body and mind experience tremendous challenge, and Crater camp is where we will keep you for this.

Crater camp is a very challenging option as it involves sleeping at nearly 18,000 feet, and unless you are fit and have the ability to acclimatize well, this can be dangerous. For experienced trekkers the benefits are immense, as virtually nobody sleeps in the crater so you will almost certainly have it all to yourself.

When you climb Kilimanjaro with Private Expeditions, you also get some comfort opportunities. There are some great luxury options before, during or after a climb. On the climb you can choose bigger tents, thicker sleeping mats, warmer sleeping bags and private toilets. After a climb, options include relaxing at a luxury spa hotel like Machweo in Arusha, going on safari and seeing the stunning views and wildlife from an air balloon in the Serengeti or relaxing on the white sandy beaches of Zanzibar.

Taking the time to explore should be memorable, and now Private Expeditions has you covered to make that possible. So don’t just climb Kilimanjaro: go One Step Beyond and make your climb unique.
