5days Marangu route Kilimanjaro Climbing

By Great Image Expedition
About marangu route Marangu Route has been referred to as the 'Coca Cola' route and this has led potential climbers to think that it is an easy route to the summit. This is far from the truth to be honest! The fact that it requires a minimum of 5 days to complete does not mean it is easier than any other route. The trail goes through lush rainforest, heath and moorland to alpine desert and ultimately the arctic zone at the peak and same route down. This safari is a great chance for you who is up for a Kilimanjaro adventure!

          Amazing safari in Serengeti and Ngorogoro with GIE
          After I contacted many safari companies from internet, only Raymond from Great Image Expedition met my expectations. He swiftly responded to any queries, was honest and suggested good solutions. My husband and I had decided to select the private 4 days safari tour which was great choice. Couldn't have had a greater experience. Everything was well organized, although they were flexible to our needs. We stayed in luxury tented camp Kubu Kubu in Serengeti and Serena Ngorogoro lodge. Both accomodations were outstanding. Our guide Godlistern Mathew was a superb guide, easy to be with, extremely friendly, helpful and able to spot animals at a distance. We learnt so much about the animals, Tanzania and the flora while with him. We were often the first, or within the first few trucks, to amazing wildlife action. We surey recommand Great Image Expedition to anyone who wants to experience a Safari tour in Tanzania.

          We took our Safari adventure with Great Image Expedition, an exceptional safari company from Arusha. We took a 4 day trip in Serengeti and Ngorogoro. GIE delivers an unparalleled adventure, seamlessly blending wildlife encounters with top-notch service. From the very first moment and communication with owner Raymond we felt that they know their businnes. Our tourguide was Bruno Apolnary. He proved to be the motor of our experience, infusing each moment with passion, knowledge and expertise. GIE's attention to detail was evident in their well-curated itineraries, ensuring a diverse range of safari experiences in Serengeti and Ngorogoro that left us in spokeless. Bruno's extensive knowledge of the local fauna added a layer of depth to our safari, transforming it into an educational expedition. GIE's fleet of safari vehicles was not only comfortable but also equipped for optimal wildlife viewing, ensuring that no sighting was missed. Bruno's infectious enthusiasm kept the group engaged, making every game drive an adventure filled with excitement and discovery. The accommodations selected by GIE were aoffering a comfortable retreat after exhilarating days in the wilderness. GIE, accompanied by the charismatic tour guide Bruno and owner Raymond, delivers an exceptional safari making it a must for wildlife enthusiasts. It was sure the best experience of our life! If you choose GIE, you’ll have the time of your life!

          Happily Safari in Tanzania
          We can happily recommend Great Image Expedition Ltd, for a very professional and personalised service: Our driver/guide Joh was great. A very steady, safe driver. He is an experienced guide, knowledgeable about the wildlife, and he was able to spot animals so many times when we would never have seen them otherwise. Thanks to the Team!!

          BEST SAFARI AND KILIMANJARO EXPERIENCE EVER! Me and my friends experienced a safari with GREAT IMAGE EXPEDITION and we had a lot of fun . Our driver at safari took us to many places at safari to see lions elephants buffalos giraffe cheetahs and many others . Lodges were so nice with a good view , good food and good vibes. for the next time I would add more days because I didn’t feel that 3 days are enough. Kilimanjaro experience was one of the best in my life . We had a very good crew that gave us every single thing we needed at the mountain. They cooked a very good food anyone could have at the mountain and they took all of us to the summit, I would do it again for sure ! A huge thanks to Raymond that let that happen !

          The trip was perfect! Would recommend!
          An amazing trip. Our guide Joshua was very komf and very friendly, he had an amazing knowledge of the wild animals. He drove us to see the migration and he drove us wherever we wanted and stopped for the smallest things as birds. Joshua was kind and friendly and talked with us about menu things. He also has a very good eye to see animals. Some hyenas hiding on a very long distance and he saw them. We got to see so many things with Joshua as our guide. We saw 1 Leopard, 6 cheetahs (2 brothers, and 1 mother with three cubs) we also saw 2 rhinos 40 elephants and 25 lions (3 big males, 2 cubs and 20 females) we saw a big pride of lions eating with ca 18 lions. We also got to see a lioness try to hunt. The migration Joshua showed us was amazing and we also saw some chacals following the zebras. The luxury matawe camp were so nice, the chief made very good food and we could hear lions rawing and hyenas howling. The rooms were very good with an amazing staff. They had a very good energy especially when my little brother had his birthday there, they sang songs and had a cool show with dance, song and cake. The hadzabe tribe is something you won’t miss, they took good care of us and showed us their culture, we went on hunting with them and they were good at letting us also try. Overall an amazing trip and we will miss Joshua very much.

          Great first Safari with Great Image expedition
          I had an unforgettable safari with Raymond’s team. The tailored made itinerary for me as solo woman traveller, quick and easy communication and well controlled within my budget with quality accommodations! Big appreciation Raymond brought me to dinner to feel downtown Arusha. I had an amazing 5d4n safari with Godlistern @godlistern_mathew, my private guide and professional driver guide @mbechetero. They showed me the beauty of Serengeti national park, close to wildlife but feeling safe. They explained the different habit of wildlife, answer my questions with knowledge and experience. They are passionate and taking care of me well. We had lots of fun ! In total of 14 days tour, I’ve been to Serengeti, ngorongoro crater, tarangire and Zanzibar. I am so satisfied with this journey, even there were small problems in between they tried there best to solve. I would recommend Raymond’s team to those who want to explore the last garden of Eden in the world !

          Epic and memorable safari with the best guides in town
          Our safari was nothing short of extraordinary. More than I could have hoped for. My family of four, including two teenage daughters, were fortunate enough to be hosted by Raymond and Humphree who treated us like family rather than clients. From the minute we met at the hotel, we knew that it would be a wonderful adventure. All of the meals provided were delicious and fresh, the accommodations were outstanding and most importantly Raymond and Humphree taught us so much in just a few days, always making sure that we were comfortable, never rushing us. No matter how many questions we had, they never grew impatient and answered all of them. It is clear that they have a wealth of knowledge and are willing to share. It’s only been a few hours since our adventure ended and we already miss them and our conversations. I highly recommend Great Image Expeditions to anyone traveling to Tanzania.

          Great experience with great safari experts !
          Unbelievable moment in Kenya! We had the pleasure of traveling to Kenya and exploring the country with Great Image Expedition Ltd. They planned out our entire itinerary in-country and handled everything from lodging to airport transfers and travel. As part of our visit we spent about 4 days in the Nairobi National Park and Amboseli National Park with our guide Raymond and Fredy. They were incredibly knowledgable not only of the parks, but of every corner of the country. Thanks to the Great Image Expedition Ltd and the team.

          6 day luxury safari and 3 nights in Zanzibar
          Raymond Saitoti - WHAT A MAN. I cannot speak highly enough of this gentleman. I booked a couples safari from England. I got plenty of quotes from Uk based companies but I wanted a local Tanzanian company. I subsequently searched ‘Tanzanian safari’ on Instagram and messaged around 10 companies, and Raymond’s company replied immediately. They were able to answer all of my questions, and were able to cater for our needs exactly. We stayed 1 night in grand melia Arusha, 1 night in Ngorongoro coffee lodge, 2 nights in central Serengeti, 2 nights in northern Serengeti and 3 nights in Zanzibar. Raymond met us at the airport and came with us for the journey. He was accompanied by an amazing tour guide called Muddy Aziz. Both Raymond and Muddy made my wife’s and my honeymoon so special. They went above and beyond, including having special performances at the hotel, having upgraded rooms and Raymond making the sweetest ‘happy honeymoon’ banner which he showed us at the Ngorongoro lunch meal. The good thing about having a local tour company is that when things go wrong, you have a port of call. Raymond came with us on safari to ensure all our needs were met. He even allowed me to drive the safari jeep which was another incredible experience. My wife and I felt so comfortable with Raymond. We were nervous paying a local company who we found on Instagram, but actually it was a blessing. From the second I saw Raymond and Muddy at the airport to the second we left, the entire holiday was perfect. I will recommend Raymond to all my close friends. If trip advisor could give more than 5 stars I would do.
