Please Join Marek and his Crew Treks team on this milestone trek to the top of Africa. Kilimanjaro rises dramatically above the vast African plains; it stands majestically as one of the 'seven summits' of the world at 19,340 ft. Ours is a challenging and rewarding 7-day trek up the lovely Machame route, a non-technical climb. Marek's team of top African guides, with their delightful personalities and gentle encouragement along with their in-depth knowledge of mountaineering, ensure that you have strong odds of summiting. An extra day is built in for acclimatization. All who climb Kilimanjaro feel a deep sense of accomplishment … deservedly so. Join us on the "roof of Africa!"
Leader: Marek Wencel - Over 20 year experience in the mountains, previous expeditions to the Andes’, Himalaya and Alaska.
Price: $3200 All inclusive (see detail below) Safari Extension Add $1100
New option: Full Gear Rental $300
Please note, the Safari extension is a very compact trip, full of adventure, covering three major national parks. In three days using all terrain vehicles we will cover a lot of miles and see multitude of animals in their natural habitat. While already in Africa, this is a great opportunity for adults and children to see up close and personal Africa’s great lions, giraffes, elephants, and if lucky even leopards.
