Tanzania by standby

Hey I work for United airlines and was curious if anybody has traveled to Tanzania by standby and if it's hard to get on the flights. I should be ok getting to Europe but wasn't sure after that. Thinking about Kilimanjaro next year.

A Hiking trip we will never forget!

Kilimanjaro information

So I am a newbie to everything and anything dealing with climbing a mountain. I am in great shape and looking for a challenge.

Kilimanjaro - Northern Circuit


Could someone recommend a good tour operator that has a Northern circuit tour lined up in the last week of February 2016.

Serengetti Pride sounds good but their dates don't suit me.

Appreciate all the help I could get.

Mt Stanley, Uganda

Just booked flights to Uganda, and looking to get up Mt. Stanley while I'm there.

Quality Kilimanjaro operators

Hi everyone,

I would like to climb Kilimanjaro next summer (there are two of us). We would like to spend a maximum of £2000 each and would like to spend a minimum of six days on the mountain.

I'm looking for suggestions on good guiding companies that fit these requirements and also possibly good routes to try?

Many thanks
