For those who’d like to climb Kilimanjaro and who are travelling solo or with just a few people, an economical and fun way to do this is to join one of our scheduled group treks. This is also a great way to meet like-minded people and share the experience. Who knows, maybe love will blossom at 5895m!

We offer Group Departure treks on our two different route choices throughout the year. These dates are not set in stone, so if you’re the first to book a particular date, we can bring it back or forwards up to 2 days. Maybe you have a special occasion that you would like to celebrate and this would suit you better. Enquire for availability, a detailed itinerary, pricing and additional services like airport transfers, hotel accommodation and maybe one of our Kili/ Safari Combos

We Offer Two Different Route Choices:

Classic Machame Route – 6 night itinerary – 6 days/5 nights on the mountain
Shira Grand Traverse – 8 night itinerary – 8 days/7 nights on the mountain

GROUP TREK – MACHAME (WHISKEY) ROUTE

Climber and Porters at Uhuru Peak

The total package length is 7 days and 6 nights including your first night at a lodge in Arusha on a Bed & Breakfast basis followed by 6 days and 5 nights on Kilimanjaro.

The Machame (Whiskey) Route is the most popular camping route on Kilimanjaro. The route is done in six days and is challenging for many people due to the altitude and fairly short acclimatization period. It requires both mental and a certain amount of physical strength to complete this challenge. Accommodation is in mountain tents supplied by Nature Discovery and set up by our own team of trained porters.

GROUP TREK – SHIRA (GRAND TRAVERSE) ROUTE, VIA THE REMOTE NORTHERN CIRCUIT

Kilimanjaro

The total package length is 9 days and 8 nights including your first night in a luxury lodge outside of Arusha on a Bed & Breakfast basis followed by 8 days and 7 nights on Kilimanjaro.

The Grand Traverse Northern Circuit is the least-used route on Kilimanjaro so we avoid the crowds and sometimes even have a campsite or 2 to ourselves. This trek is designed to get you closer to nature, and to benefit from plenty of acclimatization time early in the trip. This route is done in 8 days so there is plenty of down-time for exploring the surroundings.

Best Responsible Guide Company

My two sons and I just got back from a successful summit climb on Kilimanjaro. We had a fabulous time, with the full support and friendship of our Nature Discovery crew. We were confident we had the highest quality group on the mountain. They were professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip!
