My friend and I Planned to take on Mt Kilimanjaro on Nov 2014 by the Machame route and we decided this way after Hugh research. After looking into many African tour operators, we decided to go with Landside Adventure which was a greatest decision! Their Prices, guides, safely and food were outstanding. Our overall experience: We had a great time... More

I climbed the Rongai route, returning on Marangu. Karibu Adventures quoted a reasonable price, their communication was good and prompt and they answered all my questions prior to the climb. Unlike other companies, I could borrow gear at no extra cost. I got a good quality sleeping bag, down jacket, rainproof pants, hiking poles thrown in. The whole crew was... More

6 days in Kilimanjaro was a beautiful trip. Good food, great guide, good weather, and good company. Youth adventures & safaris was a good choice of company. They always have a smile on their faces and if you need something for the climb, they have it. We made it to the top!!

Climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro December 2014. Most amazing trip ever! Went with Youth adventures & Safaris, a great company that provide amazing service. First class professional people and a great guide, and the team overall was very good. Couldn't be more happy with the service. Thanks for a great trip to Uhuru peak!

I climbed mt Kilimanjaro of the Machame route which took me 6 days to reach Uhuru peak. It was the most incredible adventure I had ever faced but not to also mention an exhausting adventure. The company I chose to trek with was Youth Adventures and Safaris, and I must say that the professionalism of their company was incredible. The... More

The most amazing adventure I've had in my life thus far. Inspiring, exhilarating and exhausting. Hired a great trekking company with wonderful guides and porters, and when you make it to the top, there's nothing like it. Woke up every morning on the mountain thrilled to be doing the climb and to be in East Africa.

Our group of 4 climbed Mt Kilimanjaro (6 day Rongai Route) in November 2014 with Kilimanjaro Crew. We found the company online and were pleased with the amount of information provided on the website. The company is based in Moshi, Tanzania and the prices offered were very reasonable. John (the manager) was very helpful throughout the booking process, responding to... More

The 6 days trip was tougher than I thought, but what a great trip! If you travel alone, I would recommend to book with a bigger group.
