Climbing Kilimanjaro is a real adventure, and most can reach the summit with focused preparation, a good support team & plenty of determination.

Our all inclusive ‘group departures’ are the best way to climb Kilimanjaro! Share an unforgettable adventure with up to 20 or so like minded folk.

  • 40 departures each year
  • Choice of 6 routes & itineraries
  • Join as an individual, a couple, or group of friends.

Our Kilimanjaro trips are led by qualified UK mountain leaders AND an accompanying UK doctor / medic, with a full expedition med kit, to look after the group’s welfare as they head to a 6,000 metre summit! Climb Kilimanjaro with Action Challenge – and you’re in good hands!

We are 100% ATOL bonded, which gives our clients full financial protection via the CAA, and  is a requirement tour operators selling air-inclusive travel packages. Many Kilimanjaro tour operators don’t provide this – so always read the small print, and consider the risks!

You’ll get full support all the way to the summit!

You can join and ‘self fund’ just like paying for a holiday – or choose to support a charity of your choice – and cover some of your trip cost by achieving an agreed fundraising target.

If a Kilimanjaro climb is your first full-on mountain adventure, the cost of the kit & equipment can appear a bit daunting! The good news is that we have excellent arrangements for the hiring of all the key components if you wanted to – and discounts with some of the major retailers.

If you’re traveling a few thousand miles to the heart of Africa for your Kilimanjaro climb – make the most of it & extend your stay! We offer a range of fantastic safari packages to the Tanzanian wildlife parks, or if the sun & beach suits for a bit of relaxation, there’s no better place than magical Zanzibar!
