part 1: the company

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is on every keen hiker’s bucketlist and it’s crucial that you choose a company that not only knows the mountain well, but that can also assist you literally every step of the way. From the initial enquiry, throughout the whole booking process, your preparation and training, to summitting the mountain successfully.

It’s very important to choose a company that has the experience to make this all happen. /World Adventure Tours is such a company and in a series of blogs we will explain what you need to do before you arrive in Tanzania to hike up this amazing and highest free standing mountain in the world and summit successfully.

Let’s talk about why you should book with World Adventure Tours. We’re a family run business with nearly 30 years of experience in the travel industry, that looks after our local communities, their families and the environment. Headed by the award winning  entrepeneur Zainab Ansell (also known as Mama Zainab), World Adventure Tours has over the years gained the reputation of being unrivalled experts in Kilimanjaro climbs.

We take responsibility for our clients’ safety and well-being very seriously and over the years thousands of climbers have booked their trips with us.  Thanks to our highly trained multi-lingual local guides, we have a success rate of nearly 98% and around 5000 climbers book with us each year. It’s no surprise that clients return to climb the mountain again, or want to combine it with a safari and / or Zanzibar, or climb nearby Mt Meru as an acclimatisation peak.

We care about our community so much, we put money back into it wherever we can. This means that the money you pay for your climb is distributed within the community to boost the local economy, and other than the operational cost it also goes to  the Tanzania National Park fees and registered Charity organisations.

We love our country and would like to share our passion, personal experience and knowledge and look forward to welcoming you soon.
