About Twende Africa Tours
His name is Peter Kinyaiya, The local Tour Guide & Operator in Tanzania, born and raised on the slope of our Majestic Mount Kilimanjaro at 1400m. Being a Senior Guide & Managing Director at Twende Africa Tours Company is a dream come true for him. Since he was a young boy, he always wanted to guide travelers to the Roof of Africa. He was a porter on Mt Kilimanjaro for more than 6 years before keeping some money and go back to college and trained to be a qualified tour guide. After working for other companies for 10 years, he decided to get into the field and run safaris and trekking tours by himself. In 2014, Twende Africa Tours was found with his comrade porters all from the brotherhood. Our dream was to provide ordinary people with the life-changing opportunity to climb the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro.

This is the best local tour company to get you to the top of Kilimanjaro and to have the most wonderful Safari! Not only the website and communication is very professional, also all the guides and other crew. The owner Peter is extremly helpfull, friendly and having a good time is his number one priority. Twende Africa gave us the Kilimanjaro experience that everyone deserves. A very pofessional and always happy crew, the best food, great briefings and a lot of fun during the evenings. They got us to the top without any problems. After Kili we went on safari in Serengeti and Ngorongoro, again professional and friendly guide, wonderful accomodations, food and service. Peter organized everything personally and nothing was to much of an ask. Best value for money!

We had an wonderful time climbing Kilimanjaro with Twende Africa. Peter was extremely helpful and it was very easy to book and organize our trip online from the USA. When we arrived in Tanaznia we were picked up at the airport and briefed before starting our climb the next day. Our guides, porters and cook were all amazing and made the climb excellent fun. Not just a great hike, but also a cultural experience with amazing food! We finished our climb a day early and Peter took as on a free city tour in Moshi on our extra day. I would recommend Twende Africa to anyone!

We have booked a 5-days safari with Twende, a small local agency (3 days in Serengeti, 1 day in ngorongoro and 1 day in Tarangire). From the pick up at the airport to drop off the last day, the service was perfect and communication with Peter was fast and reliable. He managed to find solutions to all our requests (even a last minute programme change). Our safari driver and guide, Jeromine, was really kind, could speak different languages (german, french, english) and knew the roads and parks very well. We saw the big 5. Safari accomodations were really good as well. We didn't face any problems during our peaceful journey. Don't hesitate to book with them and support a local organisation. You won't regret your choice!

I booked this tour on Viator.com but somehow reservation didn’t go through to them. I had the hotel person contacted them to check. Technical issue created some issues on their side but that didn’t stop them to go above and beyond to ensure I had an amazing day. The owner was able to quickly arrange my tour that morning. My day started one hour later than originally expected but that became a minor details in the end. My driver/guide name was Dave. I enjoyed chatting with him. Since I was a solo participant, he took a duty as a photographer during my visit to the Maasai village, and I must say he has a good sense of photography. Good composition and thanks to him, I came home with great deals of pictures from my visit. My visit to Maasai was interesting and I am glad I got to experience this. I learned so much more about Maasai than before. The driver is also knowledgeable about Maasai, he educated me enough prior to arriving there. Lunch was good too. We stopped by a local BBQ place for lunch. Freshly cooked chicken was so tasty. Lunch was supposedly the end of the tour but since I just arrived at Tanzania, Dave offered to stop by a local gift shop and a market to give me a chance to shop. I ended up buying so much to fill a half of my suitcase! Cherry on top on this event was that the owner came back in the evening to check on my experience. He really cared about my experience and made an effort to come see me at my hotel that evening to get a feedback in person. My day may have started on the wrong side but he ensured my day ended on the right side by arranging a good driver and following through with what he said he was going to do. I highly recommend booking with them for anything as they proved themselves as a reliable tour operator.
