Our experience with Kilisa on Kilimanjaro was fantastic, we highly recommend them. We chose the Lemosho 9 day route and if you are in good shape we recommend going for the 8 day. We chose the 9 day route since it maximizes the acclimatization, but we actually ended up finishing it in 8. Kilisa was accommodating, taking care of the hotel night for that night.



Our porters, our guide Bacari, and assistant guide Tami were all tremendous! The pace of our hikes was great and they were helpful with carrying any extra gear, taking pictures, stopping for breaks, answering questions / having conversation when we wanted, and pointing out interesting plants & animals. The food was really good! You need to eat a ton to keep up your energy and the cook did not disappoint. Food was very important to help keep us full, but also to help lift spirits when we returned to camp. At first, the big trays of food were a little intimidating, but then we started looking forward to them! On the harder days, toward the end of our hike, porters would come out from camp to meet us on the trail to carry our packs the last bit. That was a welcome sight and a big boost!



Some packing tips: Bring a little less snacks than you think you’ll need. Some granola bars or trail mix is fine on the trail, but you won’t eat as much as you think. Focus more on quick sugary energy, like Snickers. A Camelbak and Nalgene are a good combo so you can drink from the bag while walking and do the Nalgene when stopped. Take Diamox and bring pee bottles!

Overall, we had a WONDERFUL experience and very much recommend doing the Lemosho route with Kilisa. The whole trip was great and we had no real issues, which is great especially considering the type of activity we were doing. A+

Based on a friend's recommendation, myself and 3 others planned a trek with Kilisa Tours for February 2022. We truly worked with a dream team!

They were wonderful to work with from the start. We had to postpone a few times due to the pandemic in 2020, and Kilisa was more than accommodating in working with us to reschedule for one person in the group's 40th birthday to be the date we summit!

In February of 2022 we all flew out to do an 8 day Lemosho route on Kilimanjaro! Kilisa made it super easy by meeting us at the airport and then transporting us to the hotel we were staying at the evening before our trek. We were able to meet our guides for the trip and they were able to review the gear we brought to make sure we had what we needed!

The next morning we set off on our trek. Our guides were patient with our group's varied abilities and helped us all to feel energized and excited for each adventure. We were offered many breaks and got to learn a lot about the flora and fauna we passed as well as about Tanzanian culture.

We were amazed by just how nice everyone was from Kilisa tours. Our porters were incredibly strong and fast, they would break down camp after we had already started hiking, pass us during the hike, and have camp set up for us before we got there!

Our chef and waiter (yes a waiter!) were amazing. At each meal we were fed multi course feasts with a variety of options! One member of our group had dietary restrictions and they were able to accommodate her and make separate portions to meet her needs! We were all full and very happy after each meal. With each meal we also were offered hot water for tea, coffee or coco and they provided all the fixings you could want to go with your meal or drinks.

The accommodations on the mountain were wonderful, we had spacious tents that you could easily sit up in for camping with thick warm sleeping pads. For dinning, they provided a full tent with table chairs and even a tablecloth.

The guides were wonderful in helping our group acclimate appropriately and monitored everyone's health in a respectful, encouraging way, never making anyone feel discouraged no matter how the altitude or weather was affecting them.

We had 2 members of the group that were having some issues with the altitude, and our dream team thought ahead and two porters agreed to assist our group with the summit. The two porters helped carry the gear for the 2 individuals having issues and all the guides and porters helped encourage and lead our team up for the summit push. One member started to feel very lightheaded and the guides were able to help her work through her dizziness, assess if it was wise to continue and then monitored her carefully as we continued up. Thanks to the amazing oversight from the team, all 4 of us made it to the summit!

Even more amazing was that at the summit, for the birthday, the guides pulled out a birthday sign and balloons for her and we all got to take a birthday picture with the summit sign!

Even more amazing was later that evening after we got to our final camp, the chef surprised the birthday girl with a beautiful and delicious birthday cake!

We truly did have a dream team with Bakari leading the way and Omary always ready for a laugh! We could not recommend using Kilisa tours enough, they were wonderful to work with and we all had an amazing time hiking Kilimanjaro with them!

My girlfriend and I climbed up and made it to the summit a day early. We were very well looked after and the food was absolutely amazing. All the porters, guides, cooks were friendly and so helpful - couldn’t have done it without them.

Make sure before you understand the tipping expectations though because you get put on the spot at the end and we felt a bit blind-sighted and had to endure a very awkward scenario!

Top company though, would recommend any day.

Thanks to Kilisa tours & safaris who did great job of organizing everything for us, the price was good and they actually organized our transport from JRO to the hotel located in Moshi town [Park view Inn] where we had a very good resting ready for trekking on the next day

The company served us with an amazing and professional guides [Bryson &Bakari] who were a greater help for us and as time went by we felt like we were a family + communication was fast and clear!!Can't say it was easy on that last push to the summit but the good help from our guides made everything possible and finally get to say I am proud I did this “Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and glad I chose Kilisa tours” because I loved everything about our trip and I will always cherish the Moment

I can’t recommend you enough although I wish everyone knew how determined and good you are!!

Asante [means thank you] Kilisa tours and you Might want to know that Swahili word cause at the end of the day you’re going to thank them for fulfilling your dream beyond your expectations

The planning stage went very well with Naick “the owner of the company” being very responsive to all questions and clear email and professionally. Then, we decided to go with 8 days Lemosho route & 5 days Safari

Everything was great when we landed as they took care of everything and We didn't have to worry about Transportation, Accommodations and Meals once in Tanzania

And during the hike we were set up by amazing guides, porters and cook. team work of Mountain crews helped us success summit Kilimanjaro

After a long climb we went to Safari 5 days at Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngoro Ngoro. Every experience was just incredible

I must admit that This was great adventure for our life and all credit goes to Kilisa Team for Making all that possible

I can't say well enough about this but If you're looking forward for Mt. Kilimanjaro Climbing or Go on a Safari, I and on behalf of my friends will highly recommend Kilisa Tours & Safari to everyone and we're definitely coming back at some point.

Is a bit challenging to go to place where you have just read the information but is the first time to be in place physically? Do not build the imagination, selecting a tour operator

Killisa tours and safaris Is a local company and it's clear that they really care about their clients.My friends and I Just returned from our trip from Kilimanjaro and it was one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had,Naick was very quick on replying our emails and well informative to all our questions. The experience was perfect and amazing. From the first day when we reached in Tanzania everything was well organized from pickup at the airport to the hotel. We started climbing the next day via Lemosho route

8 days Lemosho route gave us enough time for acclimatization, considering the fact that we had an amazing guides (Bakari and Bray) with lots of knowledge who were tireless responding to our questions before and thoroughly trekking,

Porters whohelped us so much with our stuffs and prepared our tents before we reach in each camp. What can I say about these Supermen…….!!!

And our stomach engineer “cook” made absolutely amazing meals

Gladly we all collaborated well while Everyone was awesome and professional on their position, this made us feel that we were always in safe hands!And actually we were ...they made me feel happy and fulfill my expectations

We stayed in the camping tents which are so comfy but we still felt surrounded by nature…!!Mount Kilimanjaro has breath taking nature. Although some time you get tired but it’s a fun tired.The day after we finished, the owner came to visit us at our hotel and thank us for choosing them over many

it’s 8 days of lifetime remain forever.Truly fantastic experience,

I can’t recommend them enough but Kilisa Tours & Safaris is just Everything
