The response I got from Mark was truly amazing. Fast and with as much information as you can imagine.

Mario, Spain


Mark’s service went well beyond what I had expected, and we are already looking to plan our next trip through Mark and Mountain IQ.

George, USA


While I was searching for our trek experience I must admit that no guides where as analytical and informative as Mountain IQ. All info was to the point and extremely professional.

Yiannis, Greece

Who am I?

Hey, I’m Mark.

I started this website in 2013 after climbing Kilimanjaro for the first time (I've since climbed it again). Over 5 million people have visited this site, and my guidebook, Mount Kilimanjaro: Trekkers Guide to the Summit, has been downloaded over 10,000 times.

For 3 years I ran a major Kilimanjaro tour operator. 

Today I run Skyhook - an adventure travel booking platform that connects travellers with guides I've personally vetted.

My aim is to provide expert advice to help you prepare for a safe and successful Kilimanjaro trekking experience.
