Aardvark Expeditions put together a fantastic trip for us! Communication was fantastic from the time we contacted Philemon Joel through to the return home (inquiring to make sure we made it back safely). Service level was fantastic and just we got what we expected. We booked a Kilimanjaro climb for 7 days on the Machame route, and the guides were... More

My husband and I climbed Kili a few years ago along the marangu route. Our guides and porters were great. A fantastic experience that we would recommend to anyone. I am very fussy with food so I took lots of high energy snacks which helped to get me through. Arriving at the freezing cold summit just before sun rise was... More

Climbed Kilimanjaro with Shah Tours in August 2013 with a group of 10. The guides were very good however you have to make it clear to them if you want to go slower. It is very important to keep at the pace of your slowest group member. Sticking together is the name of the game...it is not a race! Food... More

Was hoping for a clear view, but it was clouded over, except for 10 breaktaking minutes we could see the snow-capped summit our last night! Definitely want to return and will hope for clear skies the next time!

We did the 7 day trek through "matembezi" company which was excellent! The guide (exode) was super professional and his crew was kind and fun to be with. We were in a good shape therefore we felt at times that the trek was too long and that each day wasn't full enough. The first 5 days are relatively easy and... More

I simply cannot praise this company enough. From the time we started researching right up until the time we left Moshi (town at the base of Mt K) Sabino and his staff took care of us. We made the summit, but I have to admit, the summit was NOT EVEN CLOSE to the best part of this journey - just... More

I recently submitted Mount Kilimanjaro 7/12/14 with tour operator 'Ultimate Kilimanjaro' based out of Chicago. From initial contact made all my enquiries were responded to promptly and in detail by Shawn. I chose the Lemosho route, based on success rates for acclimatization. Every detail was thought through, from being picked up at the airport to hotel reservations, a daily health... More

What a challenge but a must do if this is your thing. Do Machame, by far the best. I used a local team called Ice and Dust. They are great. Ask for Isaac. Climbing is such a wonderful achievement and experience.
