Why Choose Us For Your Kilimanjaro Trek
1) 100% PROTECTED - DON'T RISK IT!
We are 100% ATOL bonded – ATOL number 6296. Tour operators who sell air-inclusive travel packages in the UK are required to hold an ATOL licence under UK law. It offers full financial protection by the Civil Aviation Authority for clients who have booked package trips, including flights. Many companies ONLY offer ABTA protection, which does NOT fully protect a combined flights and travel itinerary purchased separately as it will not form a 'package'. Always read the small print!
2) UK MOUNTAIN LEADER + TRIP DOCTORS
Fully qualified UK Leaders with deep experience and passion for what they do - offering full support and daily briefings & UK Doctors with expedition medicine experience. You may find a cheaper Kilimanjaro climb, but is it worth risking trekking to 6,000m without proper support? Full expedition medical kits provided by Nomad Travel Health Clinic, oxygen cylinders, & daily health monitoring. Click Here to read more about our safety procedure on Mount Kilimanjaro.
