I would absolutely recommend Tro Peaks to anyone serious about summiting Kilimanjaro. After a lot of research online (weighing pricing and customer reviews), my girlfriend and I decided to go with Tro-Peaks. Their pricing was more than reasonable and one of the cheapest options out there. We knew going into this that cheaper doesn't always mean better but they had... More

A friend and I hired Everlasting Tanzania Travels to climb Kilimanjaro, upon a recommendation from a colleague, and we were not disappointed. We had a regular contact with Rob before the trip about the physical training, the gears, etc. We were just the two of us but we had a guide and one assistant-guide for the climb. Seeing how other...

The accommodation was quite basic at Amboseli, the staff friendly and obliging. After a long game drive the pool was a welcome relief. As an ornamental the view from the lodge was stunning and enough of a sighting for me. Lots to do in the area including visit a Masai village to see how the real people of Kenya live

I climbed Kilimanjaro, Machame Route, with a group of four people in May this year. We went with Tropeaks who were just fantastic. They looked after us incredibly well from the start, helping us with kit briefings and rental. Our guides, Rayyson and Chua, were incredibly knowledgeable about mountain safety, how to motivate people, first aid, etc. At times on... More

Booked with Peregrine as they included all equipment including a down jacket. Once in Marangu, there was no down jacket and we experienced hypothermia on the final ascent (despite wearing 7 thermal layers) and had to turn back at Gillmans Point. Huge disappointment. Will never use Peregrine again.

For my husband's 50th birthday, he wanted to climb Kili. On a friend's strong recommendation, who previously climbed with Ultimate Kilimanjaro, we chose the 8-day Lemosho route with them. The Chicago staff was helpful answering questions prior to departure. Once in country, everything went smoothly - from airport pick-up, to accommodations, to meeting up with our climbing team. Our entire... More

Our climb with ClimbKili was excellent, however the local support staff were disorganized and could have made our whole climb very disappointing. Fortunately, our climbing crew were excellent. Our head Guide (Meckson) and assistant guide (Reuben) were very supportive and gave helpful hints along the way. Our whole group submitted because of these 2 guides – they encouraged us and... More

We did the 6-day Rongai route and 5 of our 6 members made it to the summit. One of our team members had struggled with altitude in the past and still managed to make it to 18,000 feet with the support of our guides. We have nothing but positive things to say about the company we used--Majestic Kilimanjaro. The company... More

If you are normally fit you can do this majestic climbing. But be ware of having good equipment and good shoes! And always listen to the guides! It is better to arrange the tour in advance, at least three mounths. Check your loungs because it's easy to get altitude sickness! There are many routes to choos from, mostly goes the... More
