Twende Africa tours is a start-up, tanzanian owned tour operator for climbing Kilimandjaro. I initially gave a chance to this company because I was looking for a more local, authentic experience, and I was not disappointed. First, I received a flexible and tailored service. Peter, the owner, accompanied me from my arrival in Tanzania to the beginning of the climb, and adapted the hike to my schedule. The guide, Joseph, was extremely professional and his experienced and expertise lead me to the summit. The whole team was so welcoming and contributed in giving me an incredible experience. If you are looking for an authentic, local and adaptable experience while climbing Kilimandjaro, definitely give Twende a try!

We did a morning trip to a Materuni coffee farm + traditional Chagga lunch on site with Peter, followed by a quick walking tour of Moshi in the afternoon. It was great! Peter was friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable. The coffee experience was very interesting (the coffee itself truly delicious) and it was fun to share food from Peter’s tribe with him. We were also glad to visit Moshi with him, which meant we went to places e would not have gone to by ourselves.

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!
