Packing your Kilimanjaro kit is one of the most important steps on the way to a successful climb.Learn More

Daily health checks are an essential part of the climbing journey. Your guide will measure your pulse and bodily oxygen level every morning and evening on the trek. No matter how well you feel, it is important these checks are done.
As well as the training we provide on health and safety all our head guides are Wilderness First Responder trained so you can be rest assured that you’ll be in safe hands.

High altitude trekking means a change in your body oxygen levels. Our guides will carry oximeters so they/you can regularly monitor these levels. They will also be equipped with oxygen cylinders in case of any emergencies.
Our medical kits will be stocked with common medications for the disorders associated with high altitude such as nausea, diarrhoea and headaches as well as medical equipment for first aid purposes. These kits are checked before every trek by a UK registered pharmacist.
We don’t compromise on tasty but healthy food even on the mountain. Our trained chefs will make sure you get the energy you need for your climbing adventure.
