Hiking is a great way to discover a destination, especially those hard to get to areas that are
unreachable by any other mode of transport: mountains. Furthermore, a hike or trek usually affords unbeatable views that make the climb, and occasional pain, more than worth the while.
At Abercrombie & Kent we can organise hikes and treks all over the world, from Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to the mountains of Nepal and plenty more in-between. With more than 1500 peaks over 5,000m, and several over 7,000, separating the widescreen spine of the Himalayas, the remote kingdom of Nepal has more high mountains than anywhere else on earth. It is, quite simply, trekking heaven.
Kilimanjaro has also long been a favourite amongst A&K guests, not least because we are the only international tour operator with our own dedicated Kilimanjaro climbing operation. Safety is our priority, therefore we are one of the few operators carrying oxygen bottles, altitude chambers, first aid kits and multiple communication measures on every climb. All of our guides are trained in first aid, mountain craft, natural history as well as ecological awareness, ensuring a once in a lifetime experience.
