Retired orthodontist Dr. Fred Distelhorst, age 88, successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to become the oldest person to reach the summit.
Climbing Kilimanjaro is a demanding, challenging feat. Nearly a third of all climbers fail to reach the summit. Why? To succeed on the mountain, it is imperative that climbers are guided by an experienced outfitter, with proven competence, reliability and safety.
Your guide service is the single most important factor in determining the success of your climb.
Peak Planet has been setting the standard for climbing Kilimanjaro since 2008. Though there are several hundred tour operators offer Kilimanjaro climbs, only a handful can be considered reputable. Furthermore, as one of the few specialist companies organizing high-quality Mount Kilimanjaro climbs, Peak Planet is consistently recognized as one of the best operators on Kilimanjaro. Join the thousands of climbers who have stood on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro with us.
Thank you for considering booking your Kilimanjaro climb with us. We know you have many choices, so I’d like to take this opportunity to explain how we have evolved into a company that truly rivals the industry’s highest performing Kilimanjaro operators. In the past, we partnered with another outfitter to arrange high-quality trips for our clients. But we wanted to improve our company, service, and equipment so we took destiny into our own hands and became an independent operator. In doing so, we have created the finest company on Kilimanjaro by incorporating everything we have always wanted – into our very own operation. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result.
Undoubtedly, the most honest and accurate feedback comes from our clients themselves. With the goal of constantly improving our service, a post-climb survey is taken from each client in order to assess our staff, equipment and food.
