A Little Background
Many years ago a beautiful young woman and I decided to try and impress each other and agreed to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro together.
We were young, loved to travel, and dating. It was a recipe for disaster that turned into the adventure of a lifetime. We fell in love with Tanzania and Mt. Kilimanjaro.
The people were warm, welcoming and made us feel like family. The countryside, national parks and the mountain were all gorgeous beyond our wildest imaginations. After our trip, we realized we had to share this place with others. And so we launched Kilimanjaro Adventures.
How We Got Started
We started as an adventure travel company for people like us, who wanted a real adventure but couldn’t afford a luxurious trip. But the more stories we heard from our clients the more we wanted to share them.
We realized we didn’t want to sell Mt. Kilimanjaro to people, we want to share it. We want to encourage and excite everyone, regardless of whether they booked with one outfitter or another.
Where We Are Now
So we’ve re-launched Kilimanjaro Adventures as a one-stop resource to learn about the mountain from professionals and each other. I also wrote a book about my adventure and in 2010 Kissing Kilimanjaro: Leaving It All on Top of Africa was published by the Mountaineer Books.
We thank you for taking the time to learn more about Tanzania and for sharing your own views and experiences. This site no longer belongs to the Kilimanjaro Adventures team; it belongs to anyone passionate about sharing Kilimanjaro and Tanzania.
