It was my first time to Summit Mt Kenya and Ahambi tours for the 4 days you were excellent. The first day from Sirimon Gate to Old Moses Camp I got stomach problems and Paul was very supportive. Day of Summitting from Shipton to Peak Lenana I didn't sleep, Eldad was very supportive and added me a jacket. Then the King of Summitting Mt Kenya Mr Ngare Thoithi came in very handy. Even after summitting and I started nose bleeding, he took me at my place and made sure I finished strong. The way you also made everyone be able to Summit even the 8 year old Elsie and 10 year old Darwin was just spectacular. We can't forget amazing porters who went out of their way and Macharia the cook. We miss the Scotch soup / butternut soup. Thanks so much Eldad, Paul and more so Mr Ngare.

Being a Charity Hike organized by Rotary Club of Ngong Hills & my club Rotary Club of Kikuyu The Happiest Club in Town, we were delighted by your services. We were hiking to plant trees in Ngong Hills Forest and I know we shall be back soon as our aim is to plant 1 Million Trees.

I would highly recommend Ahambi tours. If it's your first time like us all 10 or a repeat of Mt Kenya they are the guys to go to. Their advice, encouragement and positivity will overwhelm you as it did to us.

Thanks

My friend recommended doing the Mount Kenya hike with Ahambi Tours and I'm so glad she did! While organizing the trip over email, responses were clear, informative, prompt and flexible to our needs.
Our guide, Eldad, was brilliant! At the beginning he helped us pack and lent us some warm layers (you definitely need them!). During the hike he was friendly, caring and very knowledgeable. Towards the end of the hike, Eldad was flexible as my friend and I walked at different paces, he adapted the hike so they we could separate and finish the hike at our own pace.

I can't recommend hiking Mount Kenya with Ahambi Tours enough!

We hiked Mt.Kenya via chogoria route and Sirimon down. The trek itself was amazing! The scenary, the vibes. Highly recommended.
As for Ahambi, don't overthink, just do the trek with them.
Even before arriving to Kenya they were super informative, patient with our non stop questions and made a great effort to plan a suitable itinerary for us.

Our hiking team included Eldad the guide who was extremely welcoming, caring and paced us properly to make it to the top, and always with a smile on his face.
Also accompanied by Samuel, James and David - chef and porter who made sure we are properly fed and happy and warm.

Wonderful experience!

I was in Kenya on a business trip and I didn’t have any plans to do Mt Kenya until I saw it’s beauty piercing the clouds at sunrise from Ol Pejeta, then I decided to find a guide and hit the trail. I found Eldad through another guide. Eldad is an experienced, knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy mountain guide. We decided to summit Point Lenana via Sirimon. I’m an experienced hiker who’s done many mountains around the world and put thousands of miles on my hiking boots but the night before the summit push at Shiptons, I got terribly sick for no obvious reasons. I woke up Eldad in the middle of the night and he decided we descend a couple hundred meters to be safe. He was extremely responsive and supportive along with his crew. He managed to get a fire going in freezing temperatures to keep us warm and he insisted I don’t leave my tent until I feel better. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go back and summit Lenana because my flight from Nairobi was in less than 24 hrs but the experience I had with Eldad on the trails is definitely one to always be remembered. Until next time, Point Lenana and Batian.

Advice to both experienced and inexperienced hikers/climbers especially those coming from sea level like myself: take your time ascending the mountain and embrace its beauty on the way to the summit. Always remember that we’re out there to observe and embrace beauty and grace.

Dear Amr We have noted your passion in hiking, that even on a business trip and with no plans beforehand, the captivating beauty of Mt. Kenya was had you make some time for the experience. Its unfortunate though to hear of your sickness that was such a setback to your summit attempt. However, we are grateful for your excellent feedback on a wonderful experience that you had with our team altogether and the beauty you embraced along the way. We remain thankful and proud of Eldad our guide and the whole team at large, for their composure in rising to the occasion and expertly through their experience ensuring your safety in their response to the matter. We wish you all the best as you make plans on coming back for Point Lenana and Batian, it will be our pleasure at Ahambi Tours to be part of the story in your success next time. Looking forward to it. With us you are never a stranger.

Thanks Ahambi Tours for making our trip the best we even thought of.
The organization and coordination of things from booking to the trekking is amazing.
I would also like to thank the team in the office for guiding us on the best route to take. The Chogoria route didn't disappoint even for a day.
Special thanks to the team at the mountains, for sure you know your things. How you manage to even prepare delicious food in that conditions only tells that you are expertise in it.

We hope to tour with you again in the near future especially a trip to Kili.

I would highly recommend Ahambi Tours for anyone planning for a trip to Mt. Kenya.

Thanks.

We loved our 5-night budget hike up Mt Kenya! Eldad is a very experienced guide. His knowledge, expertise and good vibes made our hike the highlight of our kenya trip. He was happy to teach us about the flora, fauna and Kenya more generally - and show us where to wait out of the cold wind at the summit while the sun rose. The team of porters and our chef made sure we were comfortable and well fed with delicious food every day.

As the budget option, we were collected from our hotel in Nairobi and then accompanied to Nanyuki via public bus, and a similar thing happened on the way back. It’s an express bus and it’s not an issue, just worth being aware.

I would happily recommend Eldad and go with him and Ahambi Tours again!

Hiking Kilimanjaro was fantastic, picking and dropping was very well co-ordinated. Arrival at Arusha and all the hospitality was beyond imagination. Hiking with my children 9 and 11 years girl, boy respectively was a dream come true. we all summited upto Uhuru peak.

The guides, the cook, the porters were all friendly irrespective of my slow packing because I had children, they were very patient with me. Meals, tenting which we always found ready was amazing. The accomodations at Arusha was 5star with clean swimming pool. Everything fell in place more than we expected. Forever grateful.

Elsie 9 and Darwin 11 years are already asking where else you will be taking them. They have expressed good relationship during the hike. Eldad and team your customer service is way out of this world. Children writing history through your guidances/leadership.

I highly recommend Ahambi tours anytime.

God bless you.

Dear Rachel What a mum we have in you and the heroes in your kids. Against all odds, you set out with your dearest children, in a mission many save for their prime to one of the seven seven summits, Uhuru peak 5895m. We are out of words and can never thank you enough for your faith in Ahambi Tours and entrusting us with such a special adventure. Credit altogether to our hiking team who went out of their way to ensure a smooth run of things iced by the successful summiting of Elsie 9 and Darwin 11. We are so proud of them and feel honored to be part of their story. Hoping to bring them to the next level. With us you are never a stranger.

Our tour guide Eldad has been doing this for years, he understood what we needed from the time we met. The manager made the reservations for our trip which was tailor made to fit our requirements. The northern circuit route while ascending and descending Mt. Kilimanjaro is probably the best route in my honest opinion. Beautiful scenery, great talk with Eldad. the food was awesome! Thank you for sharing the recipe for the local dish that we enjoyed on the second day. We never expected to write such a long review and it's clear from other reviews, Ahambi Tours entire team understands what their client's really need. Thank you!

Greetings Ishmael What a joy to hear this from you. It was a long journey in the hike`s preparation, from those who answered all your questions prior to the trip, to those who made sure everything ran smooth for the 9 days on Africa`s highest mountain and the Ahambi Tours management altogether, this is a really encouraging feedback and there is not a better formula to boost everyone`s morale. Congratulations again from us and thanks for trusting Ahambi Tours in your every step to the roof of Africa. Always welcome. With us you are never a stranger.

My friend and I did Mt. Kenya (Sirimon-Chogoria) with Eldad from Ahambi Tours and it was a great and recommended experience.

Eldad was very calm, knowledgeable and friendly. We felt very safe with him, and he adapted very well to our needs. He was super patient with our endless stops to take pictures, and he helped us to overcome a small “cooking-challenge” we had to face. With other guides I have felt some sort of paternalistic approaches, but with Eldad we did not feel this at all. We shared really nice conversations, and he also helped us to spot a lot of wild animals!: Zebras, Buffalos, Birds, Baboons…

In summary we couldn’t have had a better guide and we are extremely grateful for this experience!

Asante Sana! :)

I had a wonderful experience with Ahambi for my solo hike/ climb of Mount Kenya in Sept 2023 (4 days). Colleagues from Ahambi (Charles) really set me up well and that too, on a very short notice. They were also very kind to lend me some of their climbing gears. The team that stayed Aldet (guide), Samuel (chef) and Patrick (porter) were very supportive, quite caring and did everything possible to look after my needs. During my hikes, Aldet made sure to also draw my attention to many unique things about the area, plants, birds, peaks and other facts. Aldet also encouraged me throughout, and 'held my hand' (many times quite literally!) throughout the trip. Thoroughly enjoyable.

The fourth day (day when I climbed to the summit), was a pretty exhaustive, with almost 13 hours of trekking and climbing. I wasn't aware that it will take so long and thought I pushed myself, and did it, would recommend people to be aware of this and Ahambi colleagues to explain this clearly and suggest options.

I had a fantastic time and thanks Charles, Aldet and Ahambi!
