Kili is the hardest thing I've done in my life. Be prepared! Read up on the right equipment needed. Train uphill AND downhill. Use diamox! It's very hard but so worth it when you reach the summit!

I am really pleased with the whole trip with Ultimate Kilimanjaro. The crew (from the guides to the porters) did an amazing job of meeting the different needs of our group members and making sure that we were taken care of and comfortable.. The waiters really tended to our needs. I actually got spoiled with the coffee/tea brought to the... More

The trip with Zara is fairly no-frills but for the price one pays why not, eh? Well, I'll let you be the judge. I flew into Nairobi and was told a tour representative would meet me at the airport. A few people did approach me - none of them were from Zara. After awhile someone did show up and after... More

Thanks Evans and & Rami for a trip of a life time. We book our trip with Evans as a Safari honeymoon trip, and what a trip it was. We first heard about Evans Adventure Safari after months of searching around the web for a good Safari company. The past reviews was really good so we contacted Evens for information... More

We took the Machame 7 day route with what seemed like 100 other Trekkers. Despite the number of people on the mountain, the sheer vastness of kilimanjaro managed to make our group seem like the only one there at times. Basic camping with lots of wet wipe showers made things manageable from a hygiene point of view, and only long... More

Having performed a simple web search in the UK and come up with a host of operators who did not offer the Umbwe route we went directly to a Tanzanian company who had been recommended by a friend (an experienced expedition leader). It was the best decision we could have made and my girlfriend and I could not have been... More

POSSIBLY THE BEST 8 DAYS OF MY LIFE I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in August 2014 with Serengeti pride safaris and could not recommend them highly enough. They blew me away from the first email enquiring about their company. From office staff to ground staff in Tanzania SPS are the company to climb with. I did the Lemosho western breach route,... More

We booked with Majestic Kilimanjaro for a Kilimanjaro climb for 6 and safari for 11 in early August. The climbers (which wasn't me) were very impressed with how helpful and professional Tumaini and his crew were. We joined the climbers when they descended the mountain for a 6 day safari. We were able to see incredible animals, have very comfortable... More

During my trip to Tanzania in December of 2013, I had a very bad experience with Jonas Loiruk Eliau from Kiwisa Safaris. I paid Jonas in advance to be my guide for a Mount Kilimanjaro climb and also for a 5-day safari, including a hot-air balloon ride over Serengeti. However, due to altitude sickness, I did not reach the summit... More

We had the pleasure of taking a 7 day trek up the Macheme route with guides and staff from Climb Kili. We also booked a safari through the company, though we wished we had our mountain guides there as well. Don't be fooled, summitting is a tough row to hoe. We got rained on, hailed on, and it was -15... More
