Customized Trip Itineraries

This itinerary can be individualized for people who prefer to eliminate the safari and just do the climb. In our experience, these first three days of recovering from jet lag greatly increase the chances of summiting.

There is also an option for companions of climbers who do not want to climb but would like to do a more extensive safari. (We can also help you arrange travel for those interested in extending your trip for vacation or other purposes.)

Customized trips on any of the available routes can also be arranged.

The charge of the bull elephant that was blocking the road while on safari, the hours of talking, listening and hiking up the ever-changing climate zones on the mountain, the shortness of breath that hit my chest when I tried to jog back to get my camera at 13,000 feet, the quiet of the day and deeper quiet of the night, the fatigue-hunger and elation of being at Uhuru Peak 19,340 feet above sea level on the roof of Africa. The Climb for Sight was an adventure of a lifetime.
