The trek was the hardest but most amazing thing we have ever done, not for the faint hearted but we certainly recommend it. Our guides... More

We climbed Kili with Climb Kili trip agency. It was an excellent choice, we had all the info, preparation ahead of time and coolest experience on the mountain with the best guides. Only mishap was at the very begging where my bag got lost by Ethiopian Airlines for 5 days. Climb Kili was so accommodating and helpful with this situation... More

Arrived in Moshi, Tanzania at the hotel starting point for G Adventures. Met a few hikers who just completed the summit hike who raved about the guides from G Adventures. Already the bar was set high. I have to say, our guide Albert Joseph as well as the 5 other guides and their team of porters far exceeded my expectations... More

We came to Tanzania for the Safari but wanted to visit Mount Kilimanjaro, therefore, we decided to take a day-hike. It was a little of a disappointment. This was because the portion for the 1st day hike was not as steep or challenging, and because it was not steep, to get from Marangu Gate at 1,879 meter to Mandara Hut... More

We cannot say enough about Climb Kili and our wonderful experience summiting the highest peak in Africa! Good Luck, James, Amani, Goodfried and all of the porters and staff that helped get us to the top were fantastic. They were guides, Swahili instructors, wildlife and plant experts and all around fun to spend a week with. Good Luck is Mr.... More

Rongai and Lemosho route are my favorite routes to take when climbing Kilimanjaro. Each route has its own challenge for the body and mind. Summit night is most challenging but the reward is sensational. Open blue sky with no mt ranges in sight when at the peak during daytime and cold freezing 20-40mph winds during night time. An amazing experience... More

A couple weeks ago, I completed the Lemosho Route with the help of the wonderful people at Kileo Tours. The route allowed for ample acclimatization, and offered breathtaking views. I had an incredible time with our team, who sang songs throughout the night and supported me every step of the way. If you're looking for a great guide company run... More

I had a great experience climbing with Kilimanjaro Trekking Mate. Nick is very professional, safe and an excellent communicator. I strongly recommend booking through him.
