My friend and I attempted to climb Kilimanjaro in August 2014. After 2 day, we had to come down due to my friend getting altitude sickness. The staff at the park staff were understanding about the issue and sent a car from the campsite down the mountain for us. Tanzania really takes pride in their national parks and I was... More

We have just returned from successfully summiting the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro. We climbed with the fantastic Kilimanjaro Brothers Climbing & Adventure, based in Moshi. The company's owner George and his team were fantastic from the outset, answering our many (many!) questions and giving us a lot of reassurance (we booked over a year in advance). When choosing a climbing company,... More

Marangu Hotel is one of the first and oldest guide services on Kilimanjaro. They provided a first rate experience in every respect. Good food, very competent and attentive guides, and a strong commitment to get you to the summit without compromising your health or safety. Request Guadense Mela as your head guide for sure. We researched and observed many other... More

My husband and I just returned from climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro via the Machame route (7 days/ 6 nights). The experience was unforgettable, in great part due to Climb Kili. They had quality equipment for rental (the airline lost my bag, so I rented a sleeping bag and gaiters) and the service of the guides and porters on the mountain exceeded... More

In August 2014 we did a climbing tour to Mt. Meru and Kilimanjaro as a group with six people. For preparation we used an excellent book by Tom Kunkler, “Kilimanjaro”, from which we got the names of some local tourist-agencies. Due to a reliable communication via email and because of good prices in comparison to other agencies, we decided to... More

We did the 8 day/7night climb - Lemosho/Western Breach/Crater Camp route. We climbed with our 15 year old son. Our guides Kapenge and Phillip along with the rest of the crew (26 total) took great care of us. They made sure we had everything we needed. Ryan struggled with the altitude and they carried his backpack for him during the... More

I have just returned from climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Lemosho/Shira route - the longest, and therefore most achievable route (8 days - 6 up, 2 down). Although this was in some ways one of the hardest things I have ever done, it was also the most rewarding. The scenery changes every day, so one can never become bored. We generally had... More

We went with KLM Safaris from Moshi, Tanzania. I cannot say how wonderful they were too many times! Firstly, KLM reps were there in person and welcomed us through every stage of our holiday to make sure everything was fine. The guides who took us up Kilimanjaro made sure were fit enough to complete every level before we took it... More

We are just back home from Tanzania where we had 14 days trip. We firstly booked a Kilimanjaro climb and after we decided to take a 5 day safari in Serengeti and ngorongoro crater. Being honest we met perfect people during our stays as Marc had a severe mountain sickness to the extend that we could have missed him if... More

I joined a group of participants from the UK of varying ages and levels of fitness, on a trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Elias Lyimo's team of guides, porters and cooks could not have been more helpful. Without exception they were friendly, polite and professional. On the night of the summit attempt we were encouraged and supported and felt... More
