I had planned on climbing Kili for a few years but only after meeting Godfrey, our wonderful tour operator, did it become a reality. He managed to find myself a group to climb with, took us into the company's store and made sure we were properly supplied with the necessary gear. We did the 6 day Machame route which I... More

I had a great tour guide with Youth Adventures and Safaris. I highly recommend these guys. They hooked me up with a great day hike up Kilimanjaro and took me on an unbelievable 3 day Safari through the Serengeti and Ngororo. The food provided was delicious and the tour guides were very knowledgable. I hope to go back again soon...

This is our second experience with Basecamp Tanzania. My son and I first climbed the Machame route of Mt. Kilimanjaro in late 2012. This time, we climbed the Rongai route and added a 7 day safari. While technically the rainy season, we experience beautiful weather and no crowds in March. With my wife opting to join us for the safari... More

Conqured one of my greatest fears with the help of very experienced personnel. Kilipaa Tours, one Rayson Mawyena as our guide. An incredible person filled with laughter that is infectious. Very knowledgeable and knows his way around Mt Kilimanjaro. The climbing was smooth,the sceneries breath taking and the food prepared by his cook was on point. I would summarize by... More

I have been travelling to Tanzania for more than 15 years with different groups of people. During this time I have been on many safaris with Faustin Meela who as an ex Serengeti park ranger has given us all unforgettable experiences. His knowledge of the wildlife is impressive and added to that is his professionalism and attention to detail. But... More

My girlfriend, two friends, and I climbed Kilimanjaro in mid October of 2014 with Topi Adventure. We had the most amazing time and I can not recommend Topi Adventure enough. We did the Machame route and it was incredible. The mountain is an amazing experience but the experience was so much more with our guides from Topi. The four of... More

This trip is a MUST. No questions asked.. questions like, Can I do it? Will I be fit enough? Do I need to be an experienced hiker? Will I cope without a shower for 7 days? Will I be too cold?.... none of these questions matter....you just have to try it. It's never guaranteed that you'll make it all the... More

We just finished our 6 days Kili climb with Tropeaks and it was truly outstanding. If Tripadvisor had a 6 star rating I would definitely give that to Tropeaks. We were collected at the airport by Goodluck (cook) and Daniel who is the joint owner of the company. The next day Daniel came to our hotel to check all our... More
