We trekked the Marangu route and included an extra acclimatization day on the mountain (which was a good decision!); the whole experience with Trekking Hero was positive. Organization was smooth and we felt well taken care of; we didn’t need to worry about any of the logistics leading up to and during our trek. Our guides (Robert and Aydid) were great; they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable at all times. Their experience on the mountain definitely helped us reach the summit.

I booked the Lemosho route up Mt Kilimanjaro - the pre trip advise was excellent and the actual trek was great.
well organissed - the guide was knowledgable and nice - the food was plentyful and great - The supplied sleeping bag was nice and warm ( I underestemated just how cold it was going to be ) but I was prepared.
Over all - I could not recommend trekking hero more - my next adventure is going to be with this company - well done

My husband and I did the 6 day Machame route.
I cannot recommend this company highly enough! The staff were all extremely helpful and professional, going out of their way to make our trip smooth sailing!

Our guides Jummah and Simon were really great as well and knowledgeable.

I was having a few symptoms of altitude sickness the day before the summit but both guides were very reassuring and I made it safely to the top!

Excellent food as well! Especially the soups! You won’t be hungry on the trek.

We had a FANTASTIC trip with Trekking Hero doing the 8 day Lemosho route to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Trekking Hero were AMAZING and made this once in a lifetime experience really spcial from start to finish.

The admin staff were organised and timely to respond to questions. They organised everything, including collecting us from the airport, booking a hotel, booking a celebratory dinner and returning to the airport.

We had 3 experienced guides and a group of porters to help us climb the mountain. The guides were wonderful - they were so positive and energetic, they really kept us going during the trek. They also did an amazing job of keeping us safe. They were experts on altitude sickness and ensured we acclimatised during the trek to give us the best chance of summitting. We always felt very safe in their hands. Finally they were very knowledgable about the mountain and explained it's georgraphy, wildlife and cultural importance.
The porters were always kind and friendly, there was a chef in the group who provided delicious food. We had hot breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, and there was always plenty of food to keep us fuelled for the trek.
At the end of the trek it was lovely to return to a wonderful hotel (KiliWonders) and go out for a meal with the guides.

I cannot recommend Trekking Hero highly enough, they should be your choice of company for climbing Kilimanjaro.

I could not recommend Trekking Hero and the Lemosho route highly enough. All of the staff at the company were so welcoming, fun and energetic. We were provided with 3 guides for our group of 5 (Nico, Martin and G). Alongside this, 12 porters helped carry our belongings up the mountain. A sensational effort by all! Within the staff we were provided with Hilary- a great chef and Simon- who looked after us brilliantly!

The guides provided a great experience as they catered to us in terms of walking pace. They also gave great cultural and historical lessons around the route/area. The Lemosho route also allowed us to acclimatise well for the summit push.

The porters and chef provided a great camping experience where we never felt uncomfortable with great food. We really did appreciate their care and high energy around the camps.

As a group, we couldn't fault the staff or the package which Trekking Hero provides at all. An amazing experience which we would recommend to anyone!

Everyone at TrekkingHero, from sales to onsite to support to the guiding team, made for an amazing experience.
When we were looking for a trekking company, we were concerned with success rates, customer reviews and we wanted to go with a company that has full-time employees instead of just outsourced guides. TrekkingHero supports their employees and this translates to a better customer experience.

My brother and I have just trekked the Lemosho route with Trekkinghero. I cannot explain how professional and welcoming the whole team were from start to finish and I could not recommend them more. The hotel the night before beginning the trek was luxury and very close to the mountain. Our guides, Juma and Simon were absolutely fantastic, they worked to the right pace for us and made us both feel that summiting was never going going to be a problem! They also provided us with basic cultural, historical and language lessons whilst on route. But more importantly they pushed for us to enjoy the walk as a whole, stopping for us to really take in the breathtaking scenery. The porters were the true hero’s of the trip, setting up the most luxury camping experience you could have asked for whilst the food cooked by the “stomach engineer” was fantastic and more than you could ever consume!

I have done both the Lemosho and Machame route and I preferred the Lemosho route by far! It is more scenic, more sheltered from the elements and provides you with far better acclimatisation to give you a better chance of summiting. But all in all I would say the team around you is what gives you the best chance of success on the mountain and I would give my upmost recommendation to use Trekkinghero based on my experience.

I hiked the Northern Circuit with amazing guides Bariki, Shalali, and Patrick and my four incredible children at the end of June. It was an unforgettable experience. We had scheduled this trip in 2020 to celebrate four graduations (One from college, two from high school (twins) and one from 8th grade). COVID hit and we had to postpone two years. It was not a problem with Trekking Hero. They held onto my deposit and it was seamless to reschedule. And from the moment we arrived in Moshi airport to Uhuru Peak and back down and a four day safari the trip was seamless and PERFECT. Our guides were knowledgable, safe, supportive and by the end FAMILY! It literally was a dream come true. Best two weeks of my life! A moment I will hold dear in my heart and NEVER forget!!! Thank you Trekking Hero! Shout out to Nick, Raine the 19 porters and especially Bariki, Shalali, and Patrick!!!

Trekking hero is an incredibly well organized safe operation for your Kili adventure. My sons (19 and 17) recently completed the Lemosho route in 6 days. I could not of been happier with the communication from the moment of my first contact until coming down the Mountain.

What an incredible and humbling experience. This is a lifetime memory. If you are a girl traveling alone and wondering “should I do this?” the answer is “YESSS!!!”, dont wait on anyone to fullfill your dream! You can do it and you can do it alone with a crew!

I felt like a queen with Imma and his crew (Clinton, Prosper, Walter, Paolo, Musso the cook).
I fet very safe and it was my first time traveling to Africa. TrekkingHero staff, Raine and Noella, made me feel welcomed and helped me prior my trip to get organize with as little stress as possible.

I still can’t believe I did ! Thank you Imma for being the best guide! I didn’t felt pushed, I felt supported to overcome my fears and go beyond my limits. I wouldn’t have done it if it wasn’t for the great advice of my guide and the care of the crew.

I highly recommend this tour operator and I will definitely use their service for Safari next time I will go to Tanzania or who knows… to climb mount Meru ??!!!

Thanks again for helping me check this off my bucket list.

Olivia.
