    Once time experience
    Our guides, Henry and Caleb awesome. Knowledgeable, and funny. The experience would not have been the same without them. They were able to get our team of 6 safely (up and down) Kilimanjaro. Honestly the experience of a lifetime and we have Jiwe Adventures and our great team to thank. We always felt like we were secured from start to finish! We surely highly recommend them!!

    Excellent Services - great Team, thanks to Habari adventure.
    Early April we hiked Kilimanjaro via Machame route and 5 day safari with Habari adventure for our honeymoon and both were incredible experiences. From the initial booking phase to actually being there, the whole process was effortless. When booking and preparing for our trip Caroline answered all our questions promptly (and we had a lot). For the climb we had two amazing guides, Stan & Emanuel as well as an amazing team of porters. They made our trek as comfortable as possible by attending to all our needs, feeding us really well, setting up camp in the best spots and providing lots of encouragement along the way. A special mention has to go to both guides and one of the porters, Alen, who accompanied us to the summit, without them we could not have made it. When we moved on to the safari phase the high standards of Habari adventure continued to shine through. Our guide Ronald was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and life of the local people and patiently answered all our questions as well as putting up with us taking a thousand pictures of everything that moved! The lodges we stayed in and food provided was top notch. We would recommend Habari adventure to anyone looking for unforgettable experience of Tanzania.

    Outstanding Service with professional guides!!!
    Tanzania Horizon Safaris did an incredible job. Our lead guide was Godwin and the whole crew exceeded expectations ,every step of the way. Every one of them was always happy and positive. Every camp was perfectly set up upon our arrival and huge meals were made.Our cook provided us with delicious meals. The dinners even consisted of three courses! Last but not least, the porters were great, very friendly, and pleasant, even when balancing 20 kilos on their heads, greeting us when they were passing by us. All in all, it was an amazing experience that was made possible thanks to the amazing team of Tanzania Horizon Safaris, We booked a 7-day climb up the Lemosho route of Kilimanjaro plus a 5-day safari for both experience we can Only giving 5 stars because we cannot give 10!!

    Amazing Kilimanjaro Lemosho
    My three brothers and I decided to make a go for the highest mountain in Africa with Maua Adventures. After lots of deliberations with Jackson we agreed to take the Lemosho route which is longer, scenic and better for acclimatization. We met part of our crew – Senior guide Johnson and Peter at the hotel, completed with the detailed briefing and climbing checklist then headed to Londorosi for registration, health checks and also met the rest of crew. Initially the trek was easy going through the rainforest habited by different bird species, squirrels, monkeys and other small animals. The habitat changed as we progressed higher with trekking getting tougher. However, we had a good team accompanying us on the trek. The four of us made it to the summit safely and it is a tremendous achievement. We did not stay for long but 20 minutes was enough to savor the beautiful morning views, take photos before we started our descent. We have nothing but gratitude to everyone from Maua Adventures for their wonderful support. Cook Alex was phenomenal in the mobile kitchen. His food is some of the best I have ever had. A big shout out goes to the porters who did superhuman work with no complaints. Johnson and Peter are the best guides and Jackson for putting it all together.

    Loved Kilimanjaro Adventure - Thank you Mboni
    My brothers and I agreed to go with Mboni Adventures after careful evaluations several other operators. Jacksons professionalism in his responses and consistency drew us to his firm. We are very happy with our choice because they are the best. We found Kilimanjaro very beautiful with changing sceneries every day as we moved along the track on our quest for the summit. We had the best climbing support captained by mountain guide Nixon that took care of our health, well fed, comfortable and safe. We learnt that with every single step in the right direction one can achieve greatness. We are now part of the select few in the world who have been to Uhuru Peak. I want to single out cook Priva. He made the most wonderful meals in difficult mountain conditions. I highly suggest that one talks to Mboni Adventures for Kilimanjaro. They are highly qualified and I think the best local operator in Tanzania

    Incredible Kilimanjaro Trekking Experience Hosted By Mboni Adventures
    Going up Kilimanjaro successfully takes a lot of preparation, fitness and the right support. My friends and I have done a lot of trekking but we still found it tough. We especially happy that we chose to go with Mboni Adventures, because I am certain that we would not have succeeded to the summit without the incredible support of guide Frank and his team. He led a team of experienced crew that were knowledgeable and great trekking companions. They took our well-being very seriously, great food, nice warm tents, comfy sleeping bags. In addition, we had detailed health checks in every morning and evening. The trekking experience was incredible, we enjoyed great views as we progressed upwards. In the last stages towards the summit when trekking was tough the crew encouraged us to push. Frank’s great planning helped us to reach the summit as the second party just as the sun rising. It was incredibly beautiful. The experience on Kilimanjaro with Mboni Adventures was the best. I highly recommend them.

    Kilimanjaro climbing 7 days Lemosho Route.
    From the start of this Kilimanjaro trip, i chose Nafika Tours due to their professionalism, willingness to accomdate my specific dates. Leading up to the trip, very organzized, great follow up and patience to answer my many questions. All staff, team on the Mt. Kilimanjaro hike were exceptional. They were professional, putting our safety as their top priority, while also ensuring that all 6 of our group members achieved our goal of reaching the summit. Very professional, well run, great food, safety concious and top-notch equipment. The Nafika Tours team's commitment to providing a memorable experience was evident in every interaction we had with them. They went above and beyond to ensure that we were well-prepared for the trek, providing comprehensive information and answering all our questions with patience and expertise. Their professionalism, combined with their warm and friendly nature, created an atmosphere of trust and camaraderie among the group. Waking up each morning above the clouds and climbing nature’s playground (Barranco Wall) and descending into a mystical jungle created by mist were among my favorite scenes. If I were to attempt Kilimanjaro again, I would book with the local agent Nafika Tours. It really was a phenomenal experience.

The four of us did the Kilimanjaro Machame 6 days with Zara Tanzania Adventures and it was awesome. We booked with Zara after reading their rave reviews on TripAdvisor and they were everything we would have hope for; experienced, well resourced and close attention to detail for all aspects.
Mmasa was the head guide, with Chepa his assistant. We also had Masibo as our cook and the "Boyz Team" of 12 porters completing the crew.
We had a tight schedule of daily sections with rest intervals and campsites for the overnight. The climb is quite challenging, testing our physical and mental strength. Motivation and support by the crew got us going and actually enjoying the experience. Waking to hot mugs of coffee and kind words from our team had us going. These guys worked tooth and nail to keep us safe, in good health and going for the summit.
The cold and high altitude took its toll on us, weakening us considerably that we were really exhausted by the summit attempt night. Luckily none of us had ALS and with their(crew) support we made it to the summit on 24th March.
We are super-grateful to the entire Zara team for getting us there safely.

Kilimanjaro is not for the faint hearted as it is not just a walk in the park! It took determination, hard-work and the excellent support by our superb crew from Mighty Africa Xpeditions. We did the trek as a family with my husband (54) and our son(19) and me (49) going for the Lemosho route.
When we first met the guide Derrick and Samson at our hotel I was struck by their thoroughness and warm nature, reassuring me that I was entrusting the wellbeing of my family in capable hands.
We had an excellent climbing program that allowed us enough rest and acclimatization to the oxygen deficient mountain air. The crew worked hard to keep us safe, comfortable and well fed during the trip. Rick the Chef and Marto his assistant/waiter deserve a special shout out for the excellent meals.
I noticed that our crew were well dressed for the terrain and even seemed happier than some of the outfits I saw. They intimated that they have a great package with the company. I appreciate that we had great tents, sleeping bags and mats for the hard ground, hot water bottles to keep off the chilly cold.
I owe our successful summit attempt to the wonderful support from Derrick, Samson and the rest of the crew. They are absolutely wonderful

Marangu 6 Days climb was my favorite trip and dealing with Faiza was super easy, she responded all the emails and qns on time. The trip was well organized and well guided from the start to the finish, the trek, the team was outstanding the support we got from landing at the Airport to the trek itself was unexplainable. This was the most luxury hiking i have ever experienced a little detail the team could help us with our backpacks they were so kind and professional. I highly recommend Ungitours they are the best with fair prices.

Kilimanjaro Mountain is a dream destination for explorers. With polite and knowledgeable guides, reaching the top can be an amazing experience. It's important to always have enough equipment and be prepared for unpredictable weather when planning a trip to Kilimanjaro. I hope those who embark on this journey create everlasting memories.

Kilimanjaro had been on my bucket list for a long time and luckily I had a working trip to Arusha, Tanzania in March, so I decided to do it. I got talking with Jackson in January and my schedule was tight, and I was not able to join a group of other climbers.
I thought that it was not going to be easy, particularly being a solo female climber but nothing could have been further from the truth. Mboni Adventures handled the trek so professionally that I always felt safe and in good hands. I really had good people trekking with me, starting off with my guide Frank. He is an amazing individual, very experienced, friendly and caring. I connected with him immediately I met him at Altezza Hotel. He helped me go through the packing checklist and sourced some gear items from their office for a reasonable fee.
Climbing with Frank was fun, Machame course is tough but with the camaraderie from the team made seem easy. I was amazed by the porters, they made climbing seem easy with loads on their heads/backs.
I had a tent to myself and it was comfortable and water proof. Delicious food was made by cook Samir, making sure that I had huge portions o my plate. There was enough water drink and also the morning and evening sponge baths.
This team took no chances with my health, I happened to see the first aid kit and it was well stocked.
I had an amazing experience with Mboni Adventures and I would not change anything.

Habari Adventures took very good care of myself and my husband from the airport pickup to the top of Kilimanjaro and also in Safari. My husband and I celebrated our 15-years anniversary in Tanzania, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and 6 days Safari.

Our international airline cancelled our original flight and we ended up arriving in Dar es Salaam instead of Kilimanjaro one day earlier. Stan suggested alternatives for us; he gave us two options one is to find another flight from Dar to Kilimanjaro or to send the car to pick up in Dar es Salaam to Moshi, we choose them to come and pick up us there; 8 hours driving we enjoy the trip.

I can't say enough good things about Habari adventure and our best best crew we have; they went over and above always making sure that we were comfortable and kept a steady pace during the trek and Safari.

The Mountain tents and Safari tents were in best quality. All the equipment we used was in a better condition and we had a small seating area with a table inside filled with condiments. We also slept quite comfortably because the sleeping mattress was thick and of good quality it was unexpected. We were very glad to choose this company because also they are very flexible and were able to accommodate two last-minute changes of plans. There was no hope of me achieving my aim without him. Well done and thanks again Habari Adventure, you were amazing.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We, a group of Four, have just completed the Kilimanjaro Lemosho route climb with Kili Team Adventures. Mussa provided us with a wealth of information and guidance in selecting the route, understanding all the requirements, and preparing our packing list.
Our team of 15 people was well-prepared, with a positive attitude, the right equipment, and plenty of provisions. The actual ascent was tougher than I expected, but we were in the safe and experienced hands of Amiri and Rama, who were excellent. They maintained comfortable paces and allowed for an adequate number of rest stops. However, the night before the summit was quite challenging, and our perseverance alone would not have been enough to reach the top. It was their support that led to our success.
I am pleased to say that Kili Team Adventures provided an excellent package at a very reasonable cost, considering all the planned operations, people involved, and resources required. Choosing Kili Team Adventures Adventures was the best decision we made.

I could not recommend Mboni Adventures highly enough, they were absolutely brilliant when it came to Kilimanjaro trekking. The three of us booked the Machame - whiskey route and took us six days to trek to Uhuru peak and back to Moshi.
This outfit takes everything very seriously. Our contact Jackson guided us through the booking process, furnishing us with all the information we required to prepare for the trip. He also helped us to hire a couple of items we needed.
The crew consisted of two guides (Khateeb and Frank), 10 porters and Peter our cook.
They are very experienced, patient and kind people. They handled us well, took care of us throughout the trek.
Trekking is tough however nothing would put us down. Motivational words from Khateeb, kept us going. We enjoyed spectacular sights and the experience of sleeping under canvas open in the open African outdoors. It really felt good to achieve the summit after the grueling trek.
I really appreciate the selfless support and excellent service from Mboni Adventures.

I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Nafaika Tours , and they gives us an extraordinary experience. I recently went on both a Kilimanjaro Hike (Lemosho Route) and 4 day Safari. They were a great company to work with and their guides and porters on site where top notch.
For the hike, I was so humbled by the experience and strength of the guides and porters on our hike. They truly did everything they could to make our experience the best it could be. The food was good. The tents were spacious and of good quality. The packing list was right on. If you want to be successful on a Kilimanjaro hike, Nafika Tours is the company to go with.
The Team at Nafika Tours ensured our comfort and well-being every step of the way. From hearty meals, to twice daily health checks, their commitment to our overall experience was evident throughout the expedition. We had many guiding agencies to choose from, but choosing Nafika Tours was the best decision we made for our Kilimanjaro adventure

As far as the Safari, our guide Daniel could not have been better. He was college educated in the wildlife and his answers to all our questions were so informative and interesting. He has been a safari guide for over 19 years and that experience showed as we never got stuck regardless of conditions. And we passed many stuck safari vehicles and even pulled one out. Also the Peak Planet Safari vehicle we were in was almost brand new, it had every convenience including USB charging for every seat and a fridge to keep our drinks cold. The accommodations were fabulous. It was the experience of a life time. I also want to add that we have 73 year old mother with us for the safari and the care that was shown her was great. She felt safe and was comfortable the whole trip. Thank you Nafika Tours for an unforgettable experience!
And we did see the Big 5 along with more animals, birds and reptiles than I could ever even imagined!
