If you have any suggestions of ideas for improvements for our newsletter, please do email us. We'd love to hear from you.

Tea Talk On Mount Kilimanjaro - 14 Sep 2013 (Saturday)

Mount Kilimanjaro rises above the ground at a remarkable 5895m, alluring and almost ethereal in all her splendor.

Explore rainforests and glaciers as you make this amazing journey through five ecological zones to finally stand atop the roof of Africa. The crater view promises to take your breath away, extending hundreds of miles overlooking the great savannah and beyond.

Although the least difficult of the seven summits, Africa’s highest peak is frequently underestimated every year, and many fail to reach the summit due to bad planning.

Here at Adventure Quests, we’ve carefully designed an itinerary with the aim of getting every team member to the summit. Our last trek in August this year alone had a 100% summit success rate! Our 9D trek provides you with greater time to acclimatize and enjoy the dramatic views of the surrounding undulating hills of North Eastern Tanzania.

An incredible experience awaits you this December.  Come find out why this mountain continues to attract trekkers the world over.

To know more, do drop by our office (41B North Canal Road) for the slideshow.
