For 25 years, I dreamed of climbing this mountain. I finally did it aged 62. Went up the Rongai Route - more wilderness than other routes. Struggled badly with altitude sickness at the top, but a magnificent expereince. Going with a reputable tour organiser is costly but worth it for the facilities and support.

I enjoyed the walking via 4 camps to Kibo. Cannot honestly say that I enjoyed the overnight ascent to Gilman's but the view was spectacular, the sense of achievement enormous and I enjoyed the shale run down. The guides were fantastic. Thanks to Francis, Alex, Shadrach and mega team.

What a grand adventure! Our lead guide (Theo) and his crew were terrific. Cootchei! Cootchei! We found Zara through UIltimate Kilimanjaro in Chicago and were very pleased. Some places tried to convince us that you had to pay $1,000's more to be Eco friendly and Sherpa Responsible, but we found the trip to be both. We did our safari on... More

I could not ask for a better experience, and it was all possible through Nelson Mbise and Focus in Africa. What sets this company apart from all others is that Nelson will guarantee that your trip is not only well-planned, but that you will have the time of your life. Before we even boarded our flight, Nelson had worked out... More

Having successfully climbed Kilimanjaro in September 2010, via the Lemosho route, I returned again to Tanzania to celebrate my 60th birthday on the Roof of Africa, this time doing the Rongai route. We were led this time by one of our previous guides, Abell Abdalah (Kitundu)-Facebook and Aggrey Shao. It was a 'Tailormade' trip with Abell, arranged from England, UK,... More

We took the 6-day Marangu Route with Victoria Expeditions in early July. The outcome was good as, with the help of our guides, I reached Uruhu and my friend reached Gilman Point. Accompanying us, there were nine local persons including one guide, one assistant guide, one cook and six porters. In the beginning, nine persons seemed to be too many,... More

However: there are some comments where you have to take care for: 1. Mountain Sickness: I have been before several times at... More

Three friends and I recently returned from our trip 24 day trip to Tanzania, completely organized through Focus in Africa and I could not be more complimentary of the organization! Nelson, the current director of FIA and the man who started the company a few years ago, treated us like family and was incredibly helpful throughout our entire trip. I... More

On February 2013, I climbed Kilimanjaro the 1st time via Machme route- I had an amazing trip climbing the Kilimanjaro. Everythig was very well organized by Ababkombe tours, from the pick up at the Airport, to the hotel in moshi and the climb to the Summit. I climbed single (private tour). My guide Jimmie was very professional, he briefed me... More
