I climbed Kilimanjaro with Jiwe Adventures in late February this year. I'm writing as I want to take the time to express my appreciation for the Jiwe Adventures team that shared the trek with us and got us to the summit. Paul was a great lead guide. His approach is perceptive and gentle, but he is very knowledgeable and keeps... More

It was very nice trek from the first day to the last day since I started to climb the mountains in my life. Our group comprised of eighteen people of different ages and gender but all of us reached at the peak of mount... More

We worked with the African Walking Company to go up the Machame Route - 7 day. We highly recommend it! It was the perfect amount of time to get acclimated and not too long that we were worn out. Our guides Christopher and Naimen were wonderful and we always felt safe and in good hands. With their guidance we were... More

Anybody who ranks this less than 5 stars is crazy - what a cool place to see! Bring a camera and make sure to capture lots of pictures. Whether you see if from Kenya or touch it in Tanzania, you'll be glad you did! A once-in-a-lifetime thing to do!

My husband and I did a 5 week Africa visit and I was wanting to have a 'Mt Kilimanjaro' experience but am not an avid climber! 'This is Africa' using Alpha Travel, had an overnight trek and stay up on the first level of the Kilimanjaro climb. It was difficult to get information as to the length of the hike... More

A friend and I were looking to climb the Kilimanjaro with a local tour operator so that our money went directly to the local economy. Among several ones, we picked Top Climbers because they looked very professional. The least we can say is that they definitively are!! Trained guides, review of our own gear, high level equipment (notably the tents... More

My husband and I used Kilisa Tours & Safaris for our 8 days trekking Lemosho route, I can definitely recommend this company for many reasons, the price was very reasonable with very nice combination hotels, the guides were very professional and friendly and made sure we made it safely to the top where we witnessed a stunning sunrise. The rest... More

We were a group of 6 friends climbed Kilimanjaro in February this year through Lemosho route for 7 days and everything was really good prepared. Before arrival we had a lot of questions and Manase was quick to reply all of them and... More

There are many different routes you can take up kilimanjaro. If you would like a comfortable trek be prepared to encounter a lot of traffic up the hutted route Marangu. If you prefer a wild experience, ask for the 7 day tour up the Rongai route with a beautiful detour hike to Mawenzi. There are three peaks on the mountain,... More
