Camping and luxury Safaris in the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti , Mt Meru, Lake Eyasi and... 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

I recently summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro (Machame Route) with guidance from Rayson Mawenya and his tour company, Kilipaa Tours. It was a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience that I recommend to anyone considering Kilimanjaro. Let me begin by saying that I am not an experienced climber. I had never gone camping for more than several days in a row, let alone on a... 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.

We researched different guiding companies on Trip Advisory and chose Bless Africa because they responded to our initial email quickly. Our correspondence with them was always answered within a timely manner and after telling Godi what WE wanted he put together an itinerary that matched our schedule and needs. We decided that hiring a locale trekking company might be better... More

My friend and I recently took the Lemosho route to the summit of Kilimanjaro with ClimbKili. The guides and porters were excellent and took extremely good care of our team of five. I don't think I would have summitted without the assistance of our head guide, Seraphine. The porters were extremely friendly and willing to assist us in any way... More

Summited with Ultimate Kilimanjaro guide service last week. Great experience, very well-planned and organized. Exceeded my expectations. All routes and itineraries used by Ultimate are geared towards proper altitude acclimatization, giving you the best shot towards achieving your goal: Making it to the top! Most importantly, Ultimate Kilimanjaro supports the Porter's Assistance Project, which works to ensure fair pay and... More

We just summitted Mt Kilimanjaro one week ago. The tour was organised by Ultimate Kilimanjaro and was very well organised. The guides were excellent, spoke good English, and watched out for us at all times, they provided medical assessments at the start and close of each day at our daily briefings. The food was wholesome, varied and plentiful. The porters... More

Trekked the Machame route, very hard on the last few days with long days of walking, but when you get to the top it's worth it. Climbed for charity but trekk organised by Rare Adventures, generally well organised but far too many of us sent in the same group for anything to be done easily and practically.
