Kilimanjaro Brothers was the perfect local outfitter for a climb I have always wanted to do. I was a solo hiker on the 8-day Lemosho route, but the team adjusted on the fly to my pace and we ended up completing the trip in 7 days with a successful summit!

George organized everything, including the schedule adjustment while we were on the mountain. The food was fresh, the guide was excellent and the Covid procedures were safe for a climb.

I found the price in the middle of the pack based on my research. Well worth it to support a local group.

All transportation and Covid tests were provided for, making the pandemic travel as easy as normal travel.

After the summit, I had a Covid swab taken hours after arriving back in Moshi and my results were available via email in a day and a half (swab Tuesday afternoon, results Thursday morning).

George provided transport to and from the airport.

We had an amazing experience with Kilimanjaro Brothers in Jan 2020 for both a private 8 day Kilimanjaro trek and 5 day safari. Our mountain guides Abdul and Priscus were knowledgeable and provided great support, and the team of porters took amazing care of us. Food was great and I really can't imagine a better experience.

We also had a fantastic safari with our guide Sharif who went out of his way to give us an unforgettable safari.

The team at Moshi (Geoff and George) also took great care of us with transfers, organising gear plus short day trips before and after the trek.

I used Kilimanjaro Brothers for the 8-day Lemosho Trek of Mt. Kilimanjaro with two of my friends. What an incredible experience.

We originally decided on Kilimanjaro Brothers because of their positive reviews of TripAdvisor and because they were locally owned. For us, it was important to try and find a locally owned company and after meeting so many people involved with Kilimanjaro Brothers, it means even more now. George, the owner, is Tanzanian and was once a porter. Because the company is locally owned and owned by someone who spent so much time on the mountain, we got the sense that they were committed to sustainability and the ethical treatment of their porters/employees.

In addition, every detail of our trip was executed flawlessly from our pickup at the airport with Kibo, to our drop off at the airport after our climb, All unexpected situations out of the company's control were handled smoothly and efficiently. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Our guides, Justin and Robin, were knowledgeable, kind and helped ensure that we reached the summit safely and in good spirits. Their expertise added so much value to the experience and I am forever grateful.

The food was surprisingly enjoyable as well and we had fresh fruit the entire time on the mountain. Lastly, the porters were remarkable. This is a common theme on the mountain but we had so much fun speaking and joking with the porters and getting to know everyone.

I know Kilimanjaro Brothers does safaris too. We didn't go on safari so I can't speak to that from experience but I can safely assume given the way our climb went, that you would be in fantastic hands if you used them for that.

Kilimanjaro Brothers - you were great and thank you!

Thanks for support our Local Company, after working as a porter for many years, I decided to make it his priority to establish a company that would treat porters fairly and respectfully. As a former porter who has a longer experience on tourism, with this in mind we had to establish the demonstration company “ Kilimanjaro brothers” that will treat well our porters and guides, better care for our clients. We know how hard porters work to make your trips safe and enjoyable. With this in mind, we have made Kilimanjaro Brothers into a demonstration company, which takes care of its crew and allows other companies to learn best practices. Rather than depending on donation we have registered company class A, where any travel agent or clients can book directly to us. When you travel with us you directly support us. Travel now with confidence with Kilimanjaro Brothers on your favorite routes. We have wealth experienced guides with excellent understanding wildlife and migration ecosystem. We choose the right camps and lodges at right time of the year and you get the best experience possible. Kilimanjaro Brothers delivers the highest quality safety measures on Kilimanjaro. We take the following steps on your climb while you enjoy your adventure in Tanzania: 1. – We carry oxygen tanks on all our climbs. 2. – We carry a portable hyperbaric chamber (Gamow bag) on all our climbs and have a system in place for immediate evacuation off the mountain. 3. – We Using a pulse ox meter we will monitor your oxygen saturation and heart rate twice a day or more often if necessary. 4. – Every morning we listen to your lung sounds with a stethoscope to assess if there is any fluid on the lungs, a sign of HAPE. 5. – We will monitor your water intake to assure proper hydration. safety precaution on Kilimanjaro climb. 6. – Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If AMS is not treated it can lead to more serious conditions like High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and/or High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) Each year a very small number of climbers die on Kilimanjaro. These deaths could be avoided if all licensed first aid guides who had high altitude medical training and carried oxygen and a portable hyperbaric bag. We travel with life saving equipment at all times when at high altitude. This equipment includes oxygen tanks, and a pressure bag, which are only used in the most life threatening altitude sickness cases. 7. – As part of our daily safety routine, we record and monitor various information pertaining to your body’s reaction to increasingly higher elevations. 8. – Our trips have been arranged to use daily climbing schedules and sleep to enhance your body’s acclimatization. 9. – Our meals emphasize carbohydrates and other foods that increase the generation of heat and energy as we move to higher altitudes. 10. – Moreover, we move slowly. with light exercises and celebrations at every camp to make your trip in the mountains enjoyable.

I joined a group trek organised by Kilimanjaro Brothers and the overall experience was very positive.

Highlights:
- The company representative (George) was very helpful with providing relevant information before my arrival. The hotel was also arranged for me before and after the trek.
- I got my own (3-person) tent for no extra charge. It was really comfortable having the whole tent to myself. A thin foam mattress was also included.
- The guide (Eli) seemed very experienced and took good care of the group. He proposed that we do the summit push a day earlier, but start at 3am, instead of the usual start at midnight. This was a great idea, as it was much warmer when walking up, and at the summit we were all by ourselves, without other groups! This also meant that on the summit day we didn’t have to make a big descent, but we just returned to the base camp. The remaining descent was done on the following day.
- The food was quite tasty and varied, perhaps the breakfast porridge could be improved. The waiter service, e.g. having warm tea brought to the tent in the morning, was very welcomed as well.
- On the last day we were caught in a massive rainfall. As we were quite close to the end, our guide arranged a car to pick us up, so we didn’t get fully soaked in the rain.
- It was possible to pay by card.

Lowlights:
- I decided to rent a sleeping bag from the company, as the sleeping bag I own is a 3-season one, and for Kiliminajaro a 4-season one is strongly recommended. However, the sleeping bag I got had a comfort temperature rating of +10 degrees Celsius, which is definitely not suitable for sub-zero temperatures of Kilimanjaro (and was worse than the rating of my own sleeping bag). I only realised this when we were already on the mountain, but upon later complaint I was refunded the costs of renting the sleeping bag.
- The hygienic conditions could be improved. We were given one small bowl of warm water in the morning and in the evening, and it was very difficult to do any personal hygiene with this amount of water. In the private toilet there was soap, but there wasn’t any water to use it with. After I requested it, the crew started putting a bowl of water next to the toilet, which was an improvement. However, it was quite difficult to use (the same bowl of water had to be used by multiple people for washing hands multiple times), so I think using a bucket with a small tap could be an improvement.
- Before starting the trek I saw a lot of videos of porters singing local songs to motivate the hikers. That was missing in our group.

It’s great to know that you enjoyed your vocation with us with best possible experience from local Tanzania Company. We the expert of Kilimanjaro climb and our package include hand selected hotel, all ground transfer from arrival and departure, experienced porter and guiding service. We are full equipped with both mountain and safari gears, The Climbers will sleep in four-season mountain tents during the trek. Kilimanjaro Brothers uses the best tents and maintain them to the highest standards. Our tents are water proof from Mountain hardware and Eureka. Each Kilimanjaro trek is supplied by mess/ dinning tents, crew sleeping tent, portable toilets and client tents. All our tents are good for traveling in high altitude in all mountain season. We have note that mix of safari sleeping bag and on mountain facilities, but still this was possible to notify us the same days as we was able to replace on we have always new supply. Still every days on hike as well as after dinner you we always having evaluation of a day and brief for tomorrow, stuff like this can appear or conversation and report for immediately solution and no need to wait till you finish the trip. In Kilimanjaro there five principal which are Marangu, Rongai, Machame, Lemosho and Northern circuit. Marangu is the only route which there is hut and the remain route are camping. On these camping routes, there are little wooden toilet houses along the tracks as well as in the camps. They resemble outhouses, i.e. there is no toilet with a seat. Furthermore, there are no sinks with soap, running water or showers. However, one can receive bowls with warm water and soap, which are provided by your team if required. This way, at least a minimum level of personal hygiene is ensured. On these routes you sleep in a tent se the new improved toilets which are at each camp. Or use a private toilet carried up by our porters? Usually people prefer us to carry up a private toilet and Kilimanjaro Brothers is providing for you. For this there is a cost to cover the toilet attendant, who carries, pitches, cleans and empties the loo. It’s covered in our trip fee. We provide private toilet on Kilimanjaro, well it’s clean, it’s doesn’t smell, it’s private but they are small and if windy a bit awkward as they’re inside little toilet tents. They are made from plastic; they have a seat, a flush mechanism and a sliding door which opens for your business to drop down into a container which the attendant empties. Tents provide welcome privacy. Portable pump-flush toilets are Eco-friendly and sanitary. Hand sanitizer provided to keep you healthy. Walk-in height tents are clean and comfortable. They’re cleaned regularly, they’re big, private and don’t have drafts. The floors and walls are tiled and they offer both western style toilets (sit down) and a traditional hole in the ground. They’re not pristine if the campsites are busy but they really are very good. On our traditional trek we use to sing and dancing together with clients, but after COVID epidemic the Kilimanjaro National park in cooperation with the government heath sector introduce a new regulation of Keeping distance and the prohibited that dancer for Safety reason

So glad that we chose 'Kilimanjaro Brothers' for our trip. If we do another route we will not look at any other Company. The Guides Justin and Eli were highly competent, calm, experienced and safe and along with the 10 amazing porters were the reason we managed to summit Uhuru. For myself (60) and my wife (51) we wanted to ensure that if we were going to attempt Kilimanjaro we did it with an experienced reputable local Company that treat their staff well and we wanted to ensure that we managed to have sufficient days to acclimate. 8 day Lemosho is the route with the highest success rate, and is the most beautiful and scenic route. In the Office Kelvin responded to all my emails very quickly and efficiently and answered all our questions. He was very professional. We stayed in the Parkview Inn in Moshi which was perfect. (organised by Kili Bros)
Dont even consider not taking/paying for your own toilet. It is a must and worth far more than the extra $s you pay. You will understand this at 3am in the morning when you are in camp at 4,600m, -5 degrees outside and need to use the toilet! Apart from summit night we found day 4 quite hard when we had our first excursion upto 4,600m at Lava tower.
Some top tips:
1. Pay for your own toilet
2.Drink 4-5 litres of water per day to avoid/minimise headaches and nausea at high altitude
3.Make sure you always wash your hands on the mountain and are careful with hygiene
4. Walk pole, pole at all times. Save your energy. It is not a race there are no prizes for first place.
5.Listen and act on the Guides advice. They have been up to Uhuru hundreds of times.
6.Go with an open heart and mind and respect the lovely Tanzanian people and of course the Mountain, it is nearly 6,000m!
7.Be generous with your tipping at the end of the Trek make sure you have sufficient $ up the mountain with you.
8. Leave all the equipment and clothing that you can for the porters ie plan to take extra items that you can leave. You will marvel and respect the porters when you see the work that they do.
9. Enjoy every minute, it will be the experience of a lifetime.
10. Take some sugary snacks for the Trek
11.Bring some light trainers for the Camps at night

We had an amazing experience. Use Kilimanjaro Brothers, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I did the Kilimanjaro Brothers 8-day Lemosho hike (with summit on full moon night) up Mt. Kilimanjaro last month (Oct 08-15), followed by a 3 day safari to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Lake Manyara. Based on Google and TripAvisor reviews, we selected Kilimanjaro Brothers (a local tour company in Moshi) as our tour operators. We were thoroughly impressed by their high-quality, professional and personalized service.
Their sales and marketing team was always available on web chat, phone & WhatsApp to answer all our queries. They provided us with a detailed itinerary. We were given valuable advice on what to carry along and on what to rent locally and even on how to train and be physically ready for the trek.
When we arrived there, we received a warm welcome from Mdoe at the airport. Our hotel accommodation at Panama Garden Resort was quiet and comfortable. Here, we met our main guide Abel Wanjara, who after exchanging pleasantries, went through our trekking gear to ensure we were well equipped for our trek.
Our trekking team consisted of 12 members: two guides (Abel and Simon), a cook (Edward), a waiter (Paul) and eight porters. All of them were congenial, courteous and thoroughly professional. They were always there to assist and motivate us (with their merry songs and cheers). Upon arriving at each campsite, we would find our tent (with a cozy dining room and a bedroom) and portable flush toilet ready for us (Mtaki was in-charge of the toilet and we cannot thank him enough!). Edward ensured that we were well fed and dished out some great vegetarian food for us (as was our requirement). We always had fresh, hot meals that included (but not limited to) some amazing porridges, vegetable soups, pasta, fried rice, noodles and plenty of fresh fruits. Paul was mild-mannered and friendly. He was punctual with his wakeup calls and was ready with our hot basins of water whenever we needed them. He brought us all our meals on time and ensured that we had enough to eat and drink both at the camps and on our treks.
Abel came with valuable experience and relevant knowledge, having summited more than a 100 times. He would meticulously advise us on how to dress each day and on what to carry along in our day packs. Simon (our assistant guide) emphasized on the importance of a positive attitude and gave us many useful tips on how to push through to the top. He was also full of interesting facts on the flora and fauna of Kilimanjaro. We were a merry group of 4 and had many delightful conversations on a variety of topics such as politics, literature, biology, local cultures, Swahili, etc. Every evening after dinner, Abel and Simon would check our oxygen levels and heart rates to evaluate how we were adapting to rising altitude. We would talk about the day’s trek and get a briefing on what to expect the next day. Simon would set a comfortable pace for the treks every day. One guide always walked at the back to check on our movements and breathing to monitor our fitness through the treks.
I would like to highlight some of the altruistic acts of our team members. There were times when I was exhausted and Abel cheerfully offered to carry my day pack along with his stuff. On summit night, Daniel (one of our porters) was up and helped us with our final layers and also wished us luck (while he could have been happily asleep in his warm tent). Near Stella Point, when my hands got really cold, Abel sacrificed his hand warming gel sachets for me. The guides had thoughtfully carried along hot ginger tea in a thermos that provided a fresh burst of energy after a grueling 6 hour hike. Simon boldly went barehanded at Uhuru peak (where it was below -15C) to take photos on our camera. Abel and Simon simultaneously assisted me with walking while descending to base camp, as I had a painful toe injury. We had the most memorable Kilimanjaro experience and it was possible because of each and every one in our team!! Upon returning to the hotel (this time we stayed in Park View Hotel, which is centrally located), we had a mini celebration with our team members and Mdoe after which, we bid farewell to our team that had become our family for the past 8 days.
We had a pleasant safari experience as well. Davis, our driving guide, had a keen eye for spotting animals during the game drives. We travelled in a spacious & well-equipped LandCruiser (for just the two of us). Our hotel accommodation at Karatu town was beautiful, luxurious and comfortable.
Asante Sana Kili Brothers for everything!!!!!....until next time….!!

My partner and I did the lemosho route 8 days with Kili Brothers in October 2019. We both had an amazing and unforgettable experience with them. The organisation was perfect, we did not have to worry about any details, they planned everything for us, from the moment we arrived at the airport to the moment to leave for our next adventure in Tanzania. Our guide Abel and assistant guide Simon were great, very professional and kind. They gave us good advice and explanations. They encouraged us when things got harder and were always there to help. They encouraged us to walk at our own pace and take breaks whenever we needed. They took care of us when we got sick from altitude. My partner had to go down the mountain on day 6 because of altitude sickness, while I was able to make it to summit. We really felt in good hands with them and our health was #1 priority. Our waiter Daniel was always smiling and took such good care of us! Our chef Masawe was very good and food was always great! You will never miss any food, we probably even had too much (we lost appetite due to altitude sickness). All our team of porters was also great, always smiling despite the extremely hard work they do every day for us. Their songs gave us courage when needed. Kili brothers includes a portable private flush toilet, which we enjoyed so much, especially when you compare to the horrible toilets at the camps! We highly recommend Kilimanjaro Brothers to anyone who wants to climb this mountain, you will not regret it! Asante sana, one team one dream!

Kilimanjaro Brothers is a local Company and that is one of the reasons we chose them, in order to support a local Company. They are very serious in the pre-booking and we managed to book several tours that were linked.

Our first tour was safari in Serengeti and Nghoronghoro crater. Our driver was Sharif, he picked us up at the border from Kenya and drove us to Serengeti. It was an Amazing 3 Days with Sharif, doing safari from North Serengeti to central and then the crater. We saw the big five and lived at Amazing lodges already prebooked with Kilimanjaro Brothers. Sharif also took us to a masai village (I would skip that, it is a rip off). He was a very good driver and guide and we had superfun with him in the car!

Then the last day he drow us to Moshi, to our hotel were we met our guide for our Kilimanjaro tour (also booked with Kilimanjaro Brothers). The only thing we felt here was that we are hikers from Scandinavia and we were already equioed with warm clothes, so they sold us over a 100 dollars of rental, most of we needed but the thermal pants and the extra fleese I never used. However the rest of the trip, was Amazing. Beautiful scenary, Amazing chef, Amazing porters. We had several accidents on the way that was handled professionally by everyone who walked with us.

They made us come up on the top, which was a huge success. Unfortunately the last day we got an infection of the water, so all four of us, got a stomach flu that led to antibiotic treatment and 1 week of sickness. Even though they give you water from the glacier, our stomachs are not as used to theirs, bring some water purifing pills for yourselves. Us getting the stomach bug was bad luck, no ones fault on the tour.

They also helped with transports when we got back to the hotel and to the Airport and were super helpful and friendly.

Also a fair price to climb the mountain. I highly recommend them!!
