There are many companies selling Mount Kilimanjaro climbs - and like many travel services - there's the good, the OK, and the ones best avoided! Climbing Kilimanjaro is a full-on adventure to almost 6,000 metres - so make sure you choose a good Kilimanjaro operator for the right reasons. Action Challenge has been around since 1999, and taken over 5,000 trekkers safely to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, including groups from leading UK companies & charities.

We offer a range of Kilimanjaro itineraries to suit all requirements, and believe that our Challenge Group climbs offer the best overall Kilimanjaro experience - and the best value in the market.

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!


For our Kilimanjaro 'Challenge Groups' - 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?
