Our dream to summit Kilimanjaro came true and we give special thanks to the whole team of Angelino Adventures. The organization of the trip was simply perfect. We had a lot of questions before making our decision and with the guidance and enough information from Angelino's team we finally decided to choose Lemosho Route.

The route itself is simply wonderful. The views are absolutely beautiful. Special thanks to our guides Peter and Thom who were very friendly and helpful. During the summit day the hike was really tough and without the encouragement and support of these guys maybe we wouldn't summit. We really appreciate the hike polepole (slowly) strategy.

Thanks to all our porters who did a tremendous job for 7 days. These guys are the real heroes of the mountain. Thanks to our chef, Frank, for delicious meals everyday. The porridge, toast, soup, pasta, vegetables, fruits, chicken e.t.c were all very tasty. Our hiking equipment and the whole service from ascent to the decent was simply top notch. We glad that we made the right choice of the company and the route.

I had an opportunity to spend 8 amazing days in Kilimanjaro national park with Nafika Tours a local operator in Tanzania, taking the Lemosho route. The route offered a lot of beautiful scenery, and also offered extra time to acclimatize to improve the success rate. Everybody in of our group of four summited without trouble.

We had an excellent team supporting us. Our leading guide Emanuel was truly exceptional supporting us every step on the way, finding ways to optimize our acclimatization and help with every small detail, which during the eight days accumulated to huge factor for success. Emanuel’s long experience made us feel safe and his helpful, customer first approach was reflected to all actions of the whole crew.

Emanuel, had a great and well managed team, that pushed us forward with good and positive spirit. The team included assistant guide Elisha, cook Thomas, and his team and team members leonard & Michael who supported us during the final summit push. Great guys! They didn't only help us succeed, but also made sure we had a lot of fun in the process.

I believe there were many decent crews on the mountain in those days, but I was very happy I had selected this Nafika Tours team instead of any other option. I firmly believe they were the best crew possible.

Also one additional benefit: Selecting Nafika Tours allowed us to stay last night before the summit in Kosovo camp, which is 1.5 h closer to the summit compared to Barafu camp. It was nice to switch some of the climb from night to daylight and have shorter summit push in the darkness.

Special thanks to Elias who organize all of this! Everything exceeded expectations, from the equipment to the food to the service on the mountain. I am forever grateful for my week spent on Kilimanjaro and am so glad to have gone with such a fantastic company.

A simply fantastic experience from many perspective. A brilliant Crew of Guides, porters and chef. We hiked Kilimanjaro Mountain with my husband via Machame route for seven days, we have seen almost everything with a very professional local Guide, Good Accommodation at Panama Garden Resort and enough time to see what we want. Perfect organization arranged by Goldenice Expedition Company. We really loved our stay in Tanzania with this company. We also did 3 Days Luxury safari in Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti we were able to see all big 5 animals like Lion, Leopard, Elephant, cheetah, Giraffe and so many others. The Accommodation at the park was also amazing, we were been accommodated at 3 star hotel inside the National Park very lovely place. Our trip was well organized and lovely Company. Totally Recommended.

It was once in a lifetime experience, we booked our Kilimanjaro climb with the KARIBU ADVENTURE after a lot of research and reading numerous positive reviews so glad we did! Our priority was to feel safe on the mountain.

From the start, all communication pre - trip with Frank (owner) was fantastic, with prompt responses and detailed information that answered all our questions and put our minds at ease.

Once in Tanzania we met our team and straight away they made us free so welcome. Every member of the crew, from Joshua and Steve our fabulous guides, to the chef, toilet duty porters e.t.c they all looked after us throughout the trip with such positive energy and enthusiasm you could just tell they really wanted us to succeed.
We were fed delicious meals and our camp was always spotless. We had a fantastic climb on the beautiful lemosho route.

I trul recommend Karibu Adventure for planning your trekking to Mt. Kilimanjaro

Last month was awesome because I finally made it to Kilimanjaro's summit with Popote Adventures. I did this together with three friends and it was an amazing adventure, though it stands out there as the most difficult feat I have undertaken in a very long time.
Sobino made preparation smooth with his thorough and methodical booking checklist that ensured we did not miss anything. I was really glad when I found Sobino waiting for us at JRO when we arrived in Tz at 0145hrs. Later that morning we met our climbing crew led by Osman and Issa his assistant.
Lemosho route was an excellent choice for the extra day at high altitude for acclimatization- I believe these extra hours gave us the edge we required.
The trek was really amazing, I cannot fault the crew at any point. They all went out their way for us. They pitched the tents on time, had some of the best meals in Tz on the mountain, decent mobile toilet and above all having friendly mountain experts supporting us.
If you are going for Kilimanjaro contact the experts and well established agencies like Popote Adventures because Kilimanjaro is tough, so do not put your life at risk just to save a few dollars.
Thank you Sobino and the whole Popote Adventures family for a perfect trek

I climbed Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho Route for 8 days. Before I went I was a bit apprehensive having not climbed anywhere near 5,895m before. However, the Bantu pori journey’s team were consummate professionals who did absolutely everything in their power to get us to the top and ensured we had a great time while doing so.

It was noticeable that the gear we used was superior to other groups on the mountain at the time, which made a huge difference for me. It’s the small things that make a big difference when you are a few days into the trek. The chefs were fantastic and the food was excellent. All the porters were so helpful and cheerful throughout. Our lead guide, Athumani, and his assistant guides were brilliant. They were full of encouragement along the way and I always felt we were in safe hands. I couldn’t fault my trekking experience and wouldn’t hesitate to book another trip through Bantu Pori Journeys.

It was definitely a worthwhile decision with memories to last a lifetime.

Kilimanjaro is definitely the most amazing adventure we have ever been to! We started planning for this trek in 2020 before COVID and I am over the moon that we we have done it.
We had very excellent guides, porters and cook. They made our trek smooth and successful by working tirelessly to support our efforts. I am glad to report that all the four that started this trip on 16th June all made it to the summit.
Despite the tough course we had an epic time, sharing laughs, experience's and learning so much about Tanzania from these wonderful people. I am certain that their positive spirit and encouragement was the difference that got us to the summit.
I have to commend this team for the effort that they put in to keep us comfortable, setting up the tents, preparing our food, coffee, hot water bottles, sponging water, medical supplies bag and a portable toilet. It took a lot of planning, crosschecks to pull this adventure hitch free.
I speak for al of us when I say that Mboni Adventures exceeded our expectations.

Where can I begin to express how great this trip was! 7 day climb from Lemosho gate and then a 4 day safari. Everything perfectly arranged by Elias from Nafika Tours a local company in Moshi.

Lomosho is definitely a well-planned and thoughtful hike in all manners. If you want to give your body more time to acclimatize, choose the tour for at least 9 days (7 hike + 2 hotel). (our success rate was at 100%)

The whole operation was 10/10 from the airport pickup to orientation regarding the trekk (equipment check, questions/concerns), transfers between hotels for safari. The whole trip went smoothly and I had full confidence . The mountain guides and porters made everyone feel welcomed and made it a family atmosphere. Super glad I went with them!

The climbing team was awesome. I would not have made it if not for them. They fed us 3 superb meals a day and even had 6am bed tea before everything!
At each camp our dining tent was et up ready to go along with our sleeping tents. Comparted to the other groups we saw at each camp Nafika Tours is the the best of the best. Before booking any trip to Tanzania, check with Nafika Tours. You will be blown away by their service and care.

Loved every minute of the hike and the two day safari. Climb Kili took care of everything and took care of us every step of the way. You could tell in the mountain the differences between guiding companies and I felt spoiled by the camp life provided by our porters and guides.
