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:

From start to finish this trip was pieced together using the finest detail. All we had to remember was our kits and to get to the airport on time!

With the help of the team at The Bucket List Company, the guides, the porters and a lot of team spirit, 20/20 individuals had their dreams come true and made it to the roof of Africa. It was an amazing experience and we have all made friends for life!

You also can’t go all the way to Africa without the add on safari trip. It is absolutely worth it, we managed to see the big 5 and much more in just 3 days. The next trip is already underway…

Wow… what can I say? This was one of the hardest but most enjoyable trips of my life. The Bucket List Company were a pleasure to deal with from the word go, and the support Keith offered on the trip was just amazing, backed up by Whitey and his merry band of porters.

Booking with The Bucket List Company was easy – the only thing you have to think about is packing and turning up, they organise everything, leaving you to enjoy your trip without the hassle.

I cannot thank The Bucket List Company enough, and look forward to booking my next adventure to Peru shortly.

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.

I have just returned from the most epic trip to Kilimanjaro organised by The bucket list company. They are there to answer any questions before you travel and a representative is with you and your group every step of the way.

We enjoyed the hustle of the local markets, the 6 day trek to the summit, and finally a visit to a local school. We had an amazing group of trekkers, we laughed, cried and sang together and got each other through. If your thinking of booking a life changing adventure with like minded people then your with the right company 😊.

“Kilimanjaro has always been high up on my bucket list, and when I saw that The Bucket List Company were running another trip, I knew it was time to get myself booked on.

Keith and his team were always at the end of the phone to answer questions and Keith’s Guide to Kilimanjaro just answered all of my queries. I attended the pre-expedition training weekend, which enabled me to meet the other people I would be travelling with. It also gave me chance to meet Keith and the Bucket List team and put faces to names. The training weekends are certainly a must.

On the expedition, Keith was very aware of his whole group’s needs and made sure everyone was coping well. The team’s in-country guides and porters were also amazing. They cooked for and looked after us amazingly. Summiting Kilimanjaro was a dream of mine and the Bucket List Company made that a reality. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to book another trip with The Bucket List Company, and would urge anyone considering a trip to just book and start training!”

This is by far the best experience I will ever have. If it wasn’t for Keith and his bucket list company, I would be sitting here saying “I wonder whatit’ss like to stand on the roof of Africa. Instead, I’m telling my children how daddy climbed a mountain.
