Absolutely amazing company, we were treated very well from the beginning.
The porters the true heroes of the mountain, seeing them carrying all that weight for days and still with a smile on there face was amazing, we would not have been climping if it wasn't for them.
John Summary, our lead guide and Phillip, our assistant guide, I could not have asked for better guides, really helpful for everything we needed, good humor and small talks and when the walk got tough they really encouraged you to keep going.
I 100% recommend Ascent Tanzania.

I've done Meru trek in March with Ascend Tanzania; Amos and his team were amazing throughout the trek and provided invaluable support. Everything was planned to the smallest details, the crew supported us all the way to the top. Can't wait for the Kilimanjaro with them.

Reaching the top of Kilimanjaro with Ascend Tanzania was a dream come true! Our guides and crew were outstanding. The guides paid careful attention to our pace and needs, all while teaching us many things about the mountain and high-elevation hiking. The crew was fantastic - 3 hot meals a day all of which were delicious. Best of all was the motivation on summit morning - singing and joyful motivation on the way to the top. A sunrise summit and engagement that we will never forget!

I could not have summited Kilimanjaro without the help and support of my amazing guide and the team. I can’t recommend my guide, Eli, enough. He was patient, supportive, and encouraging. When I was struggling, Eli helped motivate me. When I wasn’t feeling well, Eli did everything he could to make me feel better. His knowledge and expertise of the mountain and the conditions was so helpful. The food was great, the crew was fantastic, everyone was so nice.

And to top it off, when I forgot my headphones at my hotel, the Ascend team was there for me and shipped them to me promptly. All around, a great experience with a reliable, trustworthy company.

A wonderful adventure. The guides are truly skilled, kind, and motivating. We recommend doing this trekking with them because they are really an excellent group.

Highly recommend this Agency for a Trip to Kili! i'm a female solo traveller and never did something like this before, was nervous in general because of the altitude and how it's going to be 7 days with a group of men. I felt directly very welcome. i did 7 day Machame Route with George as my Guide and his group (Jamal,Issah,Peter,Ferrari and Honest)
I call them my hero's of the week. all of them were so helpful and caring. About my health, how i was eating and drinking and also sleeping. They made my Trip really special. and i'm beyond grateful for all of them especially George who was walking with me all the time, motivated me, pushing me all the way up on the summit day. make me laugh when i was not in the mood because of exhaustion.
Had some good conversation, and teach me some swahili. He knows a lot about the plants, animals there so he also explain a lot of that too. Give this men a salary raise. he did good.

The food was really good and a lot, sometimes to much why i felt bad because i couldn't finish it. The communication over whatsapp, with the booking and also renting gear was really easy and fast. Had some problems with renting gear online and the team solved the problem fast.
So asante sana Ascend Tanzania!

My wife and I booked a 7-day trek along the Lemosho route with Ascend Tanzania (AT) and we could not be more grateful for choosing them to help us summit Kili. There are so many good things, but for your viewing pleasure I’ll summarise:

Communication: very clear and available via WhatsApp. Questions pre-booking and post were answered promptly and clearly, and you felt they were being consultative not pushing you to pay more or anything like that. Coming from Europe with little local knowledge and no local contacts, it was very reassuring to be able to speak to the AT team so easily.

Gear: they provide a full list of required gear which was very clear and useful (see above), but when we needed last minute rentals it was easily sorted with good quality gear.

Guides: our main guide had done over 400 summits, and our assistant guide had studied at a local wildlife college after being a porter for 6+ years. They were both friendly, knowledgable about the mountain, and really considerate. We felt perfectly catered too and wish we had more time with Robert and Elisha.

Accommodation: the sleeping tent and mess tent were perfect, and were set up in time for our arrival at every camp. We rented sleeping bags and mattresses and felt very comfortable.

Food: AT was very considerate of my wife’s vegetarian requirements, and we were in general blown away from the food. It was tasty, good variety (pizza, donuts, soup, pasta, omelettes, pancakes, etc.) and we always had plenty to eat. Shout out to Lienus, our chef.

Porters: while we didn’t have as much time with the porters as the guides, they were all incredibly friendly. I We were really sad to say goodbye at the end of our seven day trip.

Route: we chose 7 days for the Lemosho route, as it has beautiful views. It is a very technical climb at points. Nothing crazy, but you want to have decent fitness as they describe to complete this route. There are easier routes, but this was very rewarding.

Important note: the team works extremely hard to make your journey an amazing experience. We followed the tipping recommendations from AT and the team was so grateful for us. It made us feel so good to give back to the team who gave so much to us, and to hear that some of the porters were using the tips to pay for college. Please consider saving up and delaying your trip if you don’t feel you can afford the tips. They really deserve it, especially after you see the work the team puts in.
