Climb Kilimanjaro

Standing at 5895m Mt Kilimanjaro is one of the world's famous 7 Summits - the highest peak on the African continent. But unlike nearly all of the 7 Summits it is possible to climb Kilimanjaro even if you have no technical expertise provided you are fit and have loads of determination.

Everest base camp trek

The Everest base camp trek is one of the world's greatest long distance walks. From the moment you take off from Kathmandu to when you eventually walk into base camp the scenery, the culture and the people are totally captivating.

Machu Picchu trek

On nearly every serious trekkers bucket list and one of the top 10 World Heritage sites, the trek to Machu Picchu combines wonderful mountain and jungle scenery with a fascinating journey through the homeland of the great Incan civlisation.


From the splendor of Ngorongoro Crater to the spectacle of the Wildebeest migration, safaris in Africa have something for everyone. And all of our safaris are tailor-made so you really can create your own safari adventure.

    Climb Kilimanjaro: Everest base camp trek:Machu Picchu trek

    Private Expeditions are trekking experts and specialise in Kilimanjaro climbs, Everest base camp treks and Machu Picchu treks. Because we understand everything about trekking at high altitude trekking we can get you there safely and enjoyably.

    What is really unique about us is that we operate all our own expeditions as we believe that, if you are trekking in wild environments with all the risks involved, you can only do this safely if every aspect of your trek is carefully controlled. We cannot do that if we sub-contract and someone else is operating the trek. You might think this is standard but as far as we are aware we are the ONLY western company operating treks who does not sub-contract a large part of their operation to a local land agent.

    As the operator we are not only able to offer a more personal, professional and tailored experience than someone who is sub-contracting but we can ensure a consistent level of service and experience across all our destinations. Whether you want to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, follow the Everest base camp trek in Nepal or the Machu Picchu trek in Peru you will findthe same friendly and professional approach. And because you book with us direct you get all that and great value prices.

    We know that for most of our customers this will be a trip of a lifetime. Time and time again we hear feedback from customerswho say it was challenging but also life changing. Everyone at Private Expeditions has their own bucket list of treks and we take the responsibility for running your trek of a lifetime very seriously.

    You are not just another customer, we take pride in being part of your personal adventure. Our sales team in the UK are experienced in all aspects of high altitude trekking and know all aboutclimbing Kilimanjaro, hiking in the Himalaya and about trekking to Machu Picchu and will do everything they can to help you plan the perfect climb or trek. And our operating teams in each country are well trained, well equipped and just as committed to ensure you really do have a life changing expedition.

    So whether you want to organise a trip to climb Kilimanjaro for charity, want to tackle the Everest base camp trek on your honeymoon or see.
