As will be the case with any decent trek operators, we only offer pre-booked trips. So you will need to book your trek in advance before leaving for Tanzania. It tends to be only the lesser and more fly-by-night operators which offer treks locally since the proper planning of a trek is a lot more complicated than just making a few last minute arrangements.
Our usual lead time between booking and trekking is 12 to 26 weeks, largely because most trekkers want to leave themselves a good length of time to get some training under their belts. For peak season treks, especially in Dec, Jan. Feb, Jul, Aug and Sep treks often sell out much further in advance.
The best way to get started is usually to have a chat with us either on the phone or by email and that should enable you to quickly figure out if this is something you would like to pursue. We are always happy to chat and answer your questions. Please do bear in mind that both Directors of Tailormade Africa have climbed Kilimanjaro themselves and have sent hundreds if not thousands of people up Kilimanjaro over a 13 year period of being tour operators. You are in great hands!
