With guaranteed departure dates, it is possible to join an open group for your Kilimanjaro climb. You have to enquire about the availability of a spot with Tranquil Kilimanjaro beforehand.

Out Kilimanjaro mountain guides have top-notch ability and expertise to guide even the largest groups but we recommend set numbers of about 10-15 climbers per group for the best chance of summit success, as they can be taken care of with undivided attention. We make sure our group climbs are as relaxed and exciting as possible.

Disadvantages of Kilimanjaro Group Tours

To be honest big group tours with strangers sometimes feels like you are not getting enough alone time. There is no privacy if you are a couple and sometimes it tends to get noisy especially if you are joining a couple of friends while you are a solo traveller.

Grouping Up

Group joining is perfect for solo travellers and young, enthusiastic travellers like students, backpackers and travellers on a tight budget. Making the effort to group up with like-minded travellers is exciting. It is important to get to know who you will be climbing the mountain with for days that is why some climbers group up to get familiar with each other before taking up the Kilimanjaro challenge.

Once climbers group up a bond, they have the freedom to socialize freely and share ideas on how to approach the climb and lower their climbing costs as a unit.

There are many open forums and social media groups that allow travellers to engage and arrange meetups like TripAdvisor forums and Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree forums or, Le Petit Futé, Quotatrip and Le Routard for French travellers.

As for travellers already within Tanzania, meeting up in Arusha and Moshi is a great way to gather and brainstorm your trip as a group. Such useful public places for meetups in Moshi include Kilimanjaro Wonders Hotel, Kilimanjaro Coffee Union, Haria Rooftop bar, Kindoroko Hotel etc. In Arusha you can choose to meet up in hotels, hostels like the Arusha Backpackers rooftop bar, Sable Square, Blue Heron, Via Via, Le patio, Zeze Lounge, Fifi’s restaurant and many more.

It is important to meet your group before climbing because these are the people that you will be spending between 5 to 9 days on the mountain together.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a lifetime experience, you will make lifelong friends and you will treasure this moment for years to come, so make the best of it!.

If your guts don’t fancy someone in the group or you don’t just connect, we strongly advise you to pair with another group, it is not worth forcing it when you will not enjoy your climb. It is your trip you should be happy and you have a choice to cancel or proceed.
