Alphonce is a young enthusiastic business owner, and he delivered an excellent tour. He was receptive to feedback on a couple of issues that I experienced at the start of the tour. Before leaving the UK, he was very accommodating and offered to receive balance payment on arrival in cash, as during the bank transfer of the deposit amount I found that about $30 dollar were lost in the transition. On arrival, all three in our group paid the full amount in cash. On the start day of our trek to Kilimanjaro, we were in the mini-bus when a member of ABAKOMBE staff telephoned me for a loan of $1600. As Alphonce was away, this was the person whom we had paid the full balance amount. He asked me to use my bank card to pay for Park fees at the Kilimanjaro National Park gates, and once we come back from the trek he will reimburse us. I was shocked since we had paid him a few thousand dollars settling our account and the tour included park fees. I told him that I could not help him because I was not carrying any bank cards, to which he suggested that I ask my group-mates if they would do the same. I declined to do that. Another man who was accompanying him suggested that he could get me SIM card and took $40, but delivered a Wi-Fi SIM which had no credit for calls or data. He said that the SIM was loaded with 250 minutes and quite a few MB data. I was unable to make a single call, send or receive any data. All I would say is that be aware of some staff, but the guides were brilliant, particularly, our Guide Peter, who checked our equipment ensuring that we had the right kit. He also set a pace which was commensurate with our fitness levels, as two of the group members were 62+. It was the support of the guides, their dedication to the expedition (14 people accompanied us to the Base Camp at BARAFU) that two of us (both over 60 years of age) that successfully climbed the peak Uhuru. The safari was also very good.

I climbed up with these guys in 2016 and I can recommend this company as budget, honest and reliable. Manager's name is Alphonсe, he is in correspondence, then he meets tourists in Moshi, then he visits all of us after returning from the mountain. The hotel is quite decent.

I climbed with two other grad students on a limited budget - the Abakombe trek was perfect for us! Had everything we needed and more. Our guides were incredible - kind, supportive, and helpful throughout our 7-day Lemosho route. Follow their advice and you will definitely make it to the top!
