Good location to rest before the attempt. There were a lot of other climbers but the place felt spacious.

I can't say enough good things about my experience with Sabino Kweka and Popote Africa Adventures. The guides and porters who helped us climb were so very helpful - it seems that they anticipated our every need. And Sabi himself checked in with us often during our entire stay. He was able to arrange a safari for me on short... More

Kibo is the highest of the three and there are several different routes to get up the highest point - Uhuru Peak. I summited via the Machame Route on a 6-day trek (4.5 days up and 1.5 days down) and enjoyed the challenge, as well... More

Kibo means Marvelous. It's the hight summit and crater of Kilimanjaro. A climbing there it's a personal challenge. But It really worths. With the right company you can spend 7 days in Kilimanjaro with all the support. Landscapes that you would just see in pictures, you can see so close when climbing by Machame Route. The forest, the alpine desert,... More

What an experience. Real professionals. We had two experienced guides, a medical doctor, and about 65 porters for 20 Walkers. We all made it to the top , which we would not have done without such a professional team behind us. The most challenging experience, physically, emotionally and mentally that I have done, but so worth it! Add it to... More

Summiting in the middle of the night is difficult, but worth it. Marangu Hotel staff are the greatest outfitters to help you climb Kili. No one comes close to their professionalism and how comfortable and safe you feel when climbing with them.
