First Kilimanjaro Rongai route - we did this over 6 days and it was an incredible journey from start to finish. The support we got from our expert guides Nelson and Antipas for the whole climb, the great food and the lovely porters made our trip safe and really a trip of a lifetime. On the night of our climb... More

I can't say enough great things about the service we received from Kessy Brothers for our Kilimanjaro climb, as well as a 5-day safari afterwards. We were fortunate to have Michael as our guide on the mountain, and opted for the 8-day Lemosho route, to give us the best chance to acclimatize. We also met another great guide from Kessy... More

I climbed Kilimanjaro using the the 5-day Machame route with Richard from Pamoja Kilimanjaro Safaris. I couldn't fault the experience. Richard is an experienced guide that can help his clients reach their destination while still respecting the risks associated with trekking at high altitude. He has a fantastic sense of humour and knows the mountain well. If you are looking... More

Amazing trail and wonderful hiking to reach the roof of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest summit in Africa. It's a breath taking view from the top . Highly recommended 👍

would like to begin this review with a ringing endorsement for visiting and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. The hike and views were unbelievable and an experience I will treasure. My friend and I used Focus in Africa due to a recommendation from an acquaintance and their partnership with local charities. Our experience with Focus in Africa had some highlights but ultimately...

My family (husband, wife and 2 teenagers) climbed Mount Kilimanjaro from Oct 7th to Oct 12th 2016. After much research we selected Kilimanjaro Trekking Mate (Nicklas Passian) and it was a great decision. The day we arrived at Kilimanjaro via Precision Air, the airline managed to leave every passengers bags at point of origin and no one had luggage that... More

Choosing the best agency is always not easy. Like many others, I wanted to make sure I chose the best at an affordable rate. I am from Malaysia and our currency is not strong against the USD. Therefore, every penny counts. But I did not want to sacrifice my life too. I got quotations from 6 agents ranging from very... More

After much research, we chose to climb Kili with Barafu Tours based on their excellent reviews, prompt response to emails, competitive price and the fact that they are 100% Tanzanian owned. From the moment Chance picked us up from the airport everything ran like clockwork. Our guides Jerome, Gerry and Mohamed led our group of six to the top, without... More

We chose Barafu tours as we wanted to climb Kili with a local tour operator. Chance and his team provided an excellent standard of service from the outset (for half the price of most British/American companies). Chance promptly responded to email queries, collected us from Kilimanjaro airport and even made an additional two hour drive to say goodbye and wish... More
