Traveling with a special interest group? Does your group have a tight schedule or prefer exclusivity? Celebrating a special event? Choose your own departure dates, climbing route, and trek length.


At Thomson, we want you to embark on a Kilimanjaro trek that’s right for you. We take pride in the design of our pre-planned routes, but we want you to have options. If our routes don’t feel just right, if you want a private trek with your family or friends, or if you’re operating on a tight schedule, we’ll custom-design a trek to fit your needs. We work with groups of any size.

We also have extensive experience leading film crews up the mountain. We’ll help you obtain film permits, importation bonds, specialty visas, and other government requirements. From charity climbers to documentary groups—we’ve worked with them all. Check some out:
