The Seven Summits

Kilimanjaro

Standing At 19,341ft, Kilimanjaro Is The Highest Freestanding Mountain On Earth And The Fourth Highest Climb Of The Seven Summits.

Climbing Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest point, presents not only a physical challenge but an exciting journey through the numerous and diverse ecosystems of the mountain, a sight not to be missed! We begin our journey in the tropical lowlands, then ascend to barren alpine desert, and finally discover the ice cliffs and snow-capped summit. A truly beautiful sight and worth the effort of the climb! Tanzania is one of the few locations where we trade in our Argentinean maté tea for the local specialty, peaberry coffee, and it certainly lives up to its distinguished reputation!

Our standard expedition is 10 days with a 4-day add-on safari program after the climb. We welcome family and friends to join our team during the safari afterwards if they are not keen on climbing Kilimanjaro, but are still interested in experiencing the beauty of Tanzania’s wildlife and landscape. For climbers on a tight schedule, we are pleased to offer a condensed version of the Kilimanjaro climb in ten days, without the safari.

In my experience, few provide a more complete, safe and rewarding expedition experience than the Benegas Brothers. When it comes to expedition judgement, safety and climbing ethics, Willie and Damian set the bar as high as the mountains they climb.

There’s a lot more to high altitude climbing expeditions than just getting to the top. Team dynamics, the opportunities to learn skills, making life long friends, enjoying new cultures and cuisine are some of the important elements of an expedition. In my experience, few provide a more complete, safe and rewarding expedition experience than the Benegas Brothers. When it comes to expedition judgement, safety and climbing ethics, Willie and Damian set the bar as high as the mountains they climb. My son Matt and I have 100% trust and confidence in Willie and Damian and when I’m not climbing with Matt, it’s reassuring to know he’s with Benegas Brothers.
