    Our visit (with overnight) was most enjoyable, the program is well thought out and the activities are interesting. The bushwalk was especially exciting (we got to see a giraffe and even "learnt" how to throw a Maasai spear). The boma is very representative of what a real vilage looks like but is very clean (and the visit there doesen't include disturbing actual Maasai people going on about their lives).
    The food was very good and we really enjoyed the campfire dinner.
    Our guide, Freddy, was knowlegable and friendly.
    One thing you should consider though is staying overnight, on one hand, staying in the hut was deffinetly an expirience but you really shouldn't do that if you are sensitive to stiff mattreses. in our opinion you could manage to fit in all of the important activities in one day (espacially if you arrive early), but the dinner was really good so decide for yourself.
    And just a small tip: think beforehand what would you like to ask Grandma over tea to make the most of your visit to her.

    I saw ot online and decided to take an afternoon walk there from Moshi town. I used goggle maps for directions. There was no other visitor when i got there so i had all the time and attention. The have a small bar that is fully packed and a really calm environment. The museum is small and has historical documentations of the chagga community. Probably a good place for afternoon walk.

    This tour was a great experience and together with our guide Sophie we had days full of amazing views, adventurous paths or interesting talks about tanzanian culture- this trail is great!;)
    Still, there is one (minor) problem: A small part of the way leads through the nationalpark and it depends on which ranger you meet at the gate ( if you are not lucky, you have to choose between paying the entrance fee or doing a detour) But don't let this stop you! ;-)

    We didn't have time to, but apparently you can also visit vanilla farmers in the villages nearby to see the social impact of this enterprise.

    My first review was taken down. So I am trying again as I think overall it is constructive criticism for the company and also useful for people to know a bit more of what they are booking...

    My trip was great but there are a few things that could have been better. At least I hope the Altezza team is reading this to find ways to fix the problems that I encountered.

    It has been a while since I climbed Kilimanjaro with Altezza. The trip itself was amazing and I really respect the hard work of all of the guides and porters who made this dream a reality. Joseph must be one of the best guides on Kilimanjaro and was really the reason I made it to the top. I could have never done it without him and the porters.

    The pre-trek info is spot and the sales team are great as well.

    The first issue I was a bit disappointed with is that we did not have the same type of tents that are in all the pictures. Our tents were fine, but when choosing a company you do look at the quality of gear and the tents in the picture look far better than what they were. One of the guides told me that they company only has a few sets of these fancy tunnel tents that are in the pictures and mostly they use tents like other companies. The tents worked fine, but I feel like they should be more transparent about this.

    The second issue I had was that they collected the tip money before we even went on the trek. This is odd coming from the US as a tip is very much depending on how good the people do their job. But the tip amount is fixed, like a local payment we paid to the safari operator for the park fees. Again, if this is how it works that is fine, but I did not feel comfortable with this. In my mind I brought money along to tip the crew and instead I was told how much I needed to give before I even set foot on Kili. I have no idea where that money went, not sure I want to know. The porters never complained so I hope they got it. If not I assume they would refuse to work.

    The last issue and maybe the most pressing issue, but the one that has been eating at me for many months. I want to write an honest review, but I don't want people to think that I am a racist or something. Finally after reading an article about the awkward situation on the International Space Station, I decided that if astronauts are not above it then why should I be. In my trek the majority of the climbers were Russians.

    Most of them were nice, but two guys were very disrespectful towards the Tanzanians, which was disheartening to see. That was difficult to sit back, but they one was the type of person just wanting someone to say something so he could pound them. On top of this, the fact that the majority of the group spoke Russian it made it challenging to have any sort of unity within the group and a lot of tension. I imagine any one of them would feel the same if the majority was English speakers and they did not speak English and then felt left out.

    Since all of my communications where in English and the website is in English, I assumed that the trek would be a good mix of people from many different countries, but overall that English would be the primary language spoken between the climbers. But it was not the case and I believe the company should inform people of this in advance. Especially given the state of the World today... There were many other groups on the mountain that I envied. I went on a group trek to make friends and meet people. I did achieve this with a few of the guides and porters, but I would have actually been better off to hike alone to avoid the added pressure from this dynamic. One of our guides told me that this was the hardest part of his job. He said before when the company had almost only Russians it was fine, but now that they get climbers from other countries but still mostly Russians it is very hard to make the trek great for everyone.

    Had I known this I would have either done a solo private trek or chosen another company. I have nothing persona against Russians, even if the group had been mostly Italians, or French, or Danish or wherever who speak a language that is not the language the trek is advertised it would have probably been the same. I would highly suggest that Altezza do different groups based on how they sell the group. The groups on the English site should not be the same groups as on their Russian website, this will help everyone to have the right expectations. Then if I speak Russian I can join a Russian trek, or a Russian who wants to practice English and meet others from other places could always join the English speaking trek.

    What a wonderful experience through Money Adventures. I used the company for a tour through Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Absolutely loved the experience and my guide David was fantastic. He had a deep knowledge of the animals and areas and was able to share all kinds of facts with me- I learned so much. He was also very patient, gave great guidance and I felt extremely well taken care of during my solo travel (which can be daunting for some but not when in the good hands of Monkey Adventures.) the lodging choices were perfect. I would highly recommend staying in a tent camp if you have the option on your tour- it was amazing to dine, sleep and wake up in the bush, listening to the calls of lions and hippos. I will absolutely use Monkey Adventures for my next safari.

    Thank you Stan for this wonderful experience.

    From arriving at the airport to reaching Kilimanjaro's peak you made sure we had everything we needed.

    We had a free day before the hike started and Stan and his team arranged a walk around Moshi and had us taken to a spring near by that was amazing!

    Would definitely recommend booking any activities in Tanzania with Habari adventures.

    Just make sure you train physically before attemping to climb Kilimanjaro as it was a real challenge.

    Thanks again Habari adventure for making it happen and supporting us all the way to Uhuru peak!

    We spent 3 days with Alpha for our safari. It was definitely the best 3 days of our life. It was magic we saw many animals. Alpha is a great guide. He knows many things and he is really kind. I definitely recommend Alpha if you want to know about massai and make a safari. You will not regret. Thank you Alpha for everything and your advice and your help after the safari. 🙏🏾

    My friends and I spent a month exploring the beautiful country of Tanzania. Under the expert guidance of owner Simbo Natai (he seems to know everyone!) and his professional staff, we trekked the Northern Circuit on Kilimanjaro, spent time on two farms, explored the exotic island of Zanzibar and saw the Big Five, the ugly five and so many more creatures on safari.
    We had the privilege of exploring the bush with safari guide extraordinaire Tom whose eagle eyes spotted animals I would have missed with binoculars. He was warm, kind and had a quick wit that made us all rafiki milele. On Kilimanjaro, the porters took care of us better than any five star service in the states. Our core team of guide Joel, assistant guide Mary and porter Dickson was second to none when it came to knowledge, support and genuine cheerleading for our success. I felt 100% safe both on the mountain and off.
    I recommend African Scenic Safaris to anyone looking to experience Tanzania’s beauty and culture.

    just back from my honeymoon safari to Zanzibar with Africa Natural Tour. The few things i enjoyed is well-prepared accommodations, 24 hours assistance if needed, it was amazing having 5 days tour to Zanzibar trip with Africa natural tour. Local boats which are made by indigenous people are amazing, high welcoming trait from the people of Zanzibar really touches me, the cool air and beaches make my tour fantastic. i expect to have another tour to visit Serengeti and Ngorongoro in December 2022 i think my only choice will be Africa Natural Tour. they deserve my five-star ratings... i love Tanzania

    We did this January the Northern Circuit with Top Climbers. It was a thrilling adventure. Even so my partner had no experience in mountain climbing we made it up to the top. A big thanks goes to our guides, Joseph and Hamidi and the good organisation by top climbers. Wouldn’t have make it without your help!
