Tanzania is the African wilderness we all imagine. The endless plains, still and peaceful as can be, until the low drumroll of hoof on ground grows louder, and a herd of wildebeest surge onto the scene, performing the next act of their Great Migration. Here, you are a spectator in the theatre of life in one of the most vibrant auditoriums of the natural world.

All metaphors aside, it is no secret that Tanzania is home to some of the most spectacular natural scenery on the planet. From the fascinating crowds of zebras, giraffes, elephants and more, to the imposing beauty of Mount Kilimanjaro, the cup of nature is overflowing and waiting to be drunk by the hand of adventure. (Ok, maybe we weren’t quite done with the metaphors.)

Indeed, Tanzania is a veritable hotbed if adventure travel. Climb to the summit of the highest peak in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding mountain and an icon of adventure. Along the way, you will pass through jungle, plains, alpine desert and snowy passes, glimpsing Colobus monkeys, or perhaps meeting passing Maasai tribespeople.

That’s another thing that Tanzania is famous for – it’s people. The culture here is warm, friendly and open; you will be welcomed with open arms whether navigating the markets of Moshi or dancing with your guides on the way up Kili. Tanzania is a must on any bucket list, and – with our MD having climbed Kili eleven times and counting – we are the people to take you!

What our Customers Say

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:

WOW what an amazing trip of a lifetime. I can’t recommend The Bucket List Company enough, I took home from this trip so much more than I ever thought I would and all my expectations were exceeded.

Keith, Whitey and all the guides and porters worked so hard to ensure the group had an amazing time and managed to reach the summit. Can’t wait to book my next trip with them.

“I joined Keith and his team for an ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. Everything was incredibly well organised, from the pre-trip training and briefings to the travel arrangements and accommodation – not forgetting the trek itself.

The professionalism and experience of Keith and his team gave me complete confidence in them, which in turn meant that I could simply relax and enjoy the trip. I would thoroughly recommend the team at The Bucket List Company, and look forward to joining them again one day.”

Having never traveled abroad before I chose The Bucket List Company because they deal with everything start to finish making life really simple and stress free.

Keith and his team are clearly experts in the world of adventure and I can’t recommend them enough. Kilimanjaro was fantastic and I’m planning my next adventure already.

“When you’re embarking on a challenge like Kilimanjaro, you want to be sure you’re booking with a company who know what they’re doing and have experience of that particular challenge. When we booked with The Bucket List Company, they let us know exactly what we needed to do, from visas to the all-important kit list.

Keith from The Bucket List Company was with us on this trek and this was his 10th time summiting Kilimanjaro. The in-country lead guide had done it over 200 times, and our particular guide had done it 176 times. With that level of experience, we were in good hands. Kilimanjaro is a very real challenge, but if you’re motivated to do it, The Bucket List Company will give you a great chance of fulfilling your dream.

We now have memories that will last a lifetime and have The Bucket List Company to thank for getting us safely to the summit. Highly recommended!”

“Working with The Bucket List Company was easy. All the information was provided to us, and we felt so prepared. Any questions we had on equipment or training were answered straight away.

The trip itself was amazing. All of the group were great and the in-country guides were superb. Keith’s knowledge of Tanzania and Kilimanjaro is second to none. With all the logistics in place, the group reached the summit as planned.

We are both looking forward to our next trip. And in the future I will be heading back to Tanzania and climbing Kilimanjaro again!”

I booked this trip on a little bit of a whim back in November last year. Although I am fairly well travelled have never done a trip with a company in quite this way before, generally I book and arrange everything independently. The Bucket List Company made everything super easy and took any stress out of planning for the trip (except maybe the training – but they even run training weekends for those who may be interested). 

The whole experience ran smoothly from start to finish. Yes summit night was as hard as, if not even harder, than I had ever imagined but we had a 100% success rate to the top (which was far higher than some other similarly large travel groups going up at the same time as us). This was purely down to the quality and dedication of the team of guides and porters that Keith uses on every expedition. Our head guide Whitey was one of the friendliest and happiest individuals I have ever met, he had all of our names memorised on the first meeting and kept everyone motivated, smiling and feeling very safe throughout the expedition. 

Either side of the expedition we were taken to see some of the local area, a market pre hike and a local school thereafter. This was not a tourist trap, The Bucket List Company has genuine links to the local area and is making a very real difference to the school. This part for me was one of the unexpected highlights and being able to spend a while playing with the children one of the more emotional parts of the trip. Such little extras are for me what makes a company like this and the whole experience even more special. I would 100% recommend The Bucket List Company. I have made some fantastic new friends, some wonderful memories and am already looking at making my next booking! Thank you Keith and Co.
