          Amazing safari
          We were 6 of us at the safari for two days. The guide was amazing. He sees all the animals even far away and explain everything to us. He was so sweet with Babou (my grandpa) and so smiling. Our meals was amazing as well. We had hot African meals when others company had only boxes of sandwiches. Organisation was perfect. I’ll recommend this compagny without hesitation. And the price is totally correct compare to others. Thank you monkey adventure :)

          Amazing trip in every way!
          My daughter and I just finished a two week trip to Uganda and Tanzania with Monkey Adventures. It was a trip of a lifetime and I want to thank MA for making it so easy to plan and even better once here. Our driver Dioniz was unreal and a true professional; he has been in the business for over 20 years and knows every other driver I swear; and his laugh?! It was magic and made the trip such fun. He drove us safely and with such a great attitude and was an amazing safari guide. He took us to places that others don’t and as a result we saw amazing things like a mummy cheetah nursing her five cheetah cubs, and even saw three cheetahs stalk, chase and kill a wildebeest. It was sad but it’s the circle of life and a once in a lifetime experience. The planning was easy and the value for money was amazing. Thanks again Monkey Adventures for making my daughter and my dream trip come to life!

          best agencies I have travelled with. Definitely recommended
          Its been an incredible experience dealing with monkey adventures. 1. Their initial sales support team was fabulous. they guided me through the right itinerary and knew the terrain at the back of their hand 2. The payment methods & process was smooth 3. The quality of safaris & guides were fabulous. The hotels they recommended turned out to be just 5 mins away from the migration which made the trip sweeter 4. During the far & few issues during the trip, their experience staff was prompt and solved them without we having to ask for it twice Overall, one of the best agencies I have travelled with. Definitely recommended

          We just got back from the five day Kilimanjaro hike on the Marangu route. Our guides were amazing! The rest of the crew was also amazing. We had Tino and Samuel. I highly recommend going with them. All throughout our trip we saw other groups and it was clear that Monkey Adventures had the best crew. we made it all the way to the top, thanks to our guides who were really smart about how to pace us and were really careful about our health and safety. Amazing experience! I highly recommend going with these guys.

          Absolutely beyond expectations!
          Fell in love with Tanzania because of Monkey Adventures!!! Enjoyed Mt Kili trekking to Safari. Booking was well organized and very quick. Well done by John and Sylvia! I finalized at the last minutes and they pulled off perfectly! Guides, porters, and drivers were super super nice. The day I arrived in Moshi, I needed to go to the hospital, the driver took me there and took care of me without any hesitations... I would go back to the rainy season again since less people. I would highly recommend Monkey Adventures and go back again soon!!!

          Kilimanjaro Hike
          Monkey adventures provided us with the best memories of our life. Eddie and Gasper made the whole trip stress-free with their humorous and caring personality. They were amazing! Our stomach engineer cooked the most delicious meals and Baby face made sure all our smallest needs were met. WE couldn’t have made it to the top without the support of our wonderful team. We are very thankful for the amazing experience and ever-lasting memories. We highly recommend going with the same team!

          Great Guides Make All The Difference
          Incredible experience hiking Kili with our guides Hans, Frances, and Emmanuel. A shout out to the porters as well. Everyone was so upbeat and easy-going, and made you feel like you were taken care of, and a group that you could trust. Definitively would recommend!

          Amazing!
          Our 10 day tour was wonderful. All hotels met our expectations, the game drives were excellent. We managed to see all the Big 5 with the persistence and experience of our guide Felix. Felix did everything in his power to provide the best for us, I'm pregnant and he took care of finding bathrooms throughout the journey, as well as making the journey as comfortable as possible.

          Kilimanjaro with Monkey Advantures
          We took Lemosho 8 days rout in Kilimanjaro with Monkey Adventures. Everything from the moment of booikng to the very end was great. Our team on the mountain was high-class professionals. Our chief guide was Gasper Ngalima - highly experienced and professional person with good sense if humour. His team is doing the great job, only with their help and support we managed to do the Summit. Highly recommended 🙌🏼

          The Safari in Mikumi was a great experience
          We had a very nice Safari with Monkey Adventures in Mikumi national park. We travelled with our guide from Monkey Adventures from Dar es Salaam and were in the park for two day. We got to see all the animals that we were hoping to see. We stayed one night at the Camp Bastian, which was beautiful, had excellent food and very friendly staff. The two lunch stops were also good. We are very happy with our guide, he could answer all our questions, and handled everything very well. In particular the traffic between Dar and the Park seemed scary to us, but we felt safe with the driving skills of our guide. For sure we will recommend your company to friends of us, when they travel to this part of Africa.

          Great safari experience
          We booked a 5 day safari through the Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater and Ndutu. Our guide Albert was absolutely amazing - if you book with Monkey we highly recommend asking for Albert - he was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and very flexible to make the tour work for us. We saw so many animals and it was all thanks to Albert’s sharp eyes! The company was good at suggesting which parks we should visit for the time of year we were visiting. We did have an issue with the Jeep but our guide Albert handled it flawlessly and the company was receptive to our feedback afterwards.

          Enlightening
          The very best staff you could ask for. The guides, chef, porters, drivers, facilitators, and everyone involved who helped make a dream reality. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Special thanks to Juma and Rama for educating us on the wonderful facts about Tanzanian's vibrant history and culture. Would highly endorse Monkey Adventures to travelers.

        We just got back from a 6 day trekking trip on the Machame Route with Monkey Adventures. The experience was amazing. Everything was well planned and well-prepared. Our experience with Monkey was smooth and easy from the beginning of planning and booking the trip to the last day where we completed the trek. Our guides, Lazaro and Hanz were knowledgable and very well experienced. They made sure we were prepared for each leg of the hike and we made it to the summit safely. The cook, Hassan made incredibly healthy and hearty meals to help us keep our energy up. The whole team was so kind and helpful and made our hike enjoyable.

        Important: The equipment was very reliable and sturdy. Our tent was very warm and it kept us and our items dry and clean. The team did SUCH a good job building camp each day, never once was it messy or dirty inside our tent. I do recommend opting for the personalized bathroom option, it just makes it easier at night time.

        Highly recommend booking with Monkey Adventure.

        Excellent trek using the Machame route. So much diverse scenery on the way to the summit.Monkey adventures were excellent especially Denis the leading guide and the rest of the crew. The tents were an issue at times but overall would highly recommend the company. The whole crew were very professional and fun to be with and 8 out of 9 made it to the summit, testament to the professionalism of Denis and his slow slow approach (poli poli). Excellent value as well but remember tipping is essential and amounts to at least another 10%.

        I book 7 Day Machame Route a few months ago, all communication are very smoothly through email. Our guide Sanke is very professional, he provides proper suggestion based on my altitude sick situation, give me support to climb the peek. Another guide Chris is also friendly, he help me to bring my camera and took lots of pictures for us. Also Kennedy from office help me to arrange another 4 days Safari after I had some issues with my previous contact safari company. Based on my personal experience, Monkey Adventure is a trust hiking company if you want climb Kilimanjaro, I will suggest all my friends to use them for sure.

        I can not recommend monkey adventures enough. This trip was everything I could have hoped for and more. From the food to the guides to the vistas you the summit. You will not be disappointed booking with Monkey. The differentiator first these guys has to be the quality of the staff from the guides to the porters to the cooks. We had the creme de la creme. Remy was our head guide and had all the musings of a wise leader taking a crew of mountain neophytes on the adventure of a lifetime. Solum was an amazing assistant guide with a great attitude and a calming presence that erased all tensions. And last but most certainly not least, Kelvin. Kelvin was a from start to finish and I owe my summit to his dedication and assistance on summit day when I was at my lowest. Pictured is us at Stella point before the summit. If you’re in doubt about booking with these guys to go to Kilimanjaro then rest assured you’re in good hands. Get booked and get out there.

        The Lemosho route had very diverse terrain with great views of Kili. Monkey Adventures did an excellent job of taking care of me and managing my positivity as we ascended up the mountain. The first few days were not too challenging but as we moved into higher altitude it certainly became a challenge. Leaving at midnight for the summit push was a real shock to the system but 5.5 hours later I made it and felt the most overwhelming sense of achievement as I saw the Uhuru Peak sign. Definitely want to come back but do another route again in the future.

        What an incredible experience of a lifetime! I am so grateful to have chosen Monkey Adventures as our guide service for both our Kilimanjaro Hike and Safari. We had a group of 15 friends who were all able to summit Kilimanjaro, thanks to the support of our guides and porters. Special thanks and shout out to our guides: Aminiel, Conrad, Fadhili, Jovin, Raja, Nelson, and Issaya in addition to our chefs and porters. Our guides went above and beyond to ensure we stayed safe and had a great time. They gave us such a fun and cultural experience, making us laugh, dance, and sing our way to the top for all 6 days! Our trip was so efficient and well organized. Our group did not need to do a single piece of work, other than walk. The food was spectacular and we had constant access to water. I am in awe of how hard our crew worked to support us- we could not have done it without them! It was truly my most favorite experience and I would recommend this team to anyone considering a trip to Kilimanjaro and Safari.

        We had a really great time trekking with Monkey Adventures! Rojas, Timo and the crew took great care of us throughout the whole experience. They were very attentive to all our needs from the very first moment we met. They took us through the route in a slow, relaxed pace in order to reach the summit with a best possible shape. They monitored our health periodically though left us to enjoy the experience in its fullness. It was thanks to the guides, their great motivation skills and resilence I eventually made it to the summit even I was about to quit on few ocassions.
        Monkey Adventure rocks so I would be more than happy to endorse them to guide anywhom might be concerned through any Kilimanjaro route!

        My Father Eric and I took the 6 day Machame Route in Early June 2022. Our Guides Liver Kimath (Senior Guide), and Paul Mbise (Assistant Guide) were both extremely knowledgeable not only about the mountain, but about the flora and fauna on the mountain as well. The rest of our team consisted of our cook – Luguru Magna, and Porters Isaya Juma, Pendaeli Benso, Hamisi Mzava, Shabani Salim, Richard Emma, John Maiko, Mohamed Hassan, and William Sambura. I recommend you request this team if you can!

        I cannot express my gratitude enough for the whole team and the fantastic efforts they displayed whilst setting up our camps. With the help of the team, we both successfully reached the summit! We both came in good shape and health and making it to the summit with the help of our team was no problem! Monkey was extremely helpful when helping us rent any gear we needed to in Moshi and setting up our transfer to our Safari.

        After summiting Kilimanjaro, we went on a safari to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Our driver Kimondo was one of the most fantastic people we met during our time in Tanzania. Kimondo knew so much not only about each of the animals we saw but the behaviors and interactions between all the animals on the Serengeti. We saw every animal and plant that we set out to see and were lucky enough to see 3 Rhinoceros! Overall, we wish we could have stayed longer!

        Additionally, our accommodations were nothing short of amazing. Every hotel we stayed at was clean, had friendly staff, and was very extravagant especially considering the price point. Monkey adventures really helped us experience Tanzania in a fantastic way and I would recommend them to anyone that is considering a trip to the Serengeti or Kilimanjaro!

        Highly recommend monkey adventures for both the Kilimanjaro hike and safari! We did the 6 day Machame hike and our lead guide, Ezekiel was beyond amazing. Assistant guides Emanuel and Moswi-John, were also incredible. The crew was very attentive to all of your needs and took care of each and everyone of us the whole time. Thanks to those three, Samson and Jackson, we were all able to summit and have great memories as well.

        For our 3 day safari we had Ashley. He did an incredible job at making sure we saw as many animals in the few days we had. He was very knowledgeable on the animals and answered any questions we had. Thanks to him we were able to see the big 5 in 2 days!

        100/10 recommend monkey adventures and the people who lead both of our adventures over and over again! They had everything so organized for us and did everything they said they would do. This was a trip of a lifetime!

        The hike was very well organized, the guides Erick and Yahyi very friendly, competent, and flexible. It was my first time hiking and sleeping at such a high altitude, and yet with the guides' advice and encouragement (and with the help of medication of course), we made it to the top!
        Only my younger brother, despite the medicine, was not feeling well enough to do the whole hike, but the guides did not force him at all. They listened to his wish to go down and adapted accordingly. It was great to see that they could adapt so easily, as they just want everyone to have a great time!
        Also, the cook did a great job! Especially considering the altitude and the lack of infrastructure up there. I don't know if it's only because we were spending a lot of energy every day and were starving at almost every meal (expect on the 3rd day, when I was feeling sick from the altitude) but I really enjoyed the food :) also, they provide hot water in the morning + evening for a quick wash, which was most welcome.

        The hike was tough, but I definitely wouldn't have made it without the support of the guides and the whole team (the porteurs). I'm very impressed by their physical strength and their calm throughout all the way.

        I can only recommend booking a trip, may it be a safari or the ascension of Kilimanjaro, with Monkey Adventure! If you want to make sure to have very experienced and competent guides, ask for Erick and Yahyi (or Yaki), these guys have been climbing the Kili for the last 11 years and really know their stuff :D

        Hi Marie, Thank you so much for this detailed review. It is fantastic to know that this was your first hike at such altitudes and you made it to the peak. Kudos!! We wish your brother could have made it too, but I feel it was the right decision to not push for it this time. We believe our guides do a great job and your reviews strengthen our belief. We will pass on the kind words to them. We look forward to hosting you again! Fred
