Absolutely incredible service provided by Tanzania Horizon. My boyfriend and I decided on a 14-day Mt. Kilimanjaro hike, with a safari on the second half. Based on their recommendation we opted for the 8 day Lemosho route up to Uhuru Peak, and we couldn't be happier with their advice, the route was beautiful and the longer trek allowed for better acclamation giving us the best chance for a successful summit. Our head guide, Abuu and assistant guide Isaac were incredibly experienced and were committed to our safety and well being, but without taking away from any of the adventure or fun of the incredible journey. The rest of our 13-man crew of porters, cook, and wash facility carriers were friendly and committed to our success. Perhaps the most surprising part of the hike was how amazing the food was, 3 freshly cooked and delicious meals a day made sure we were always ready for more hiking, I dare say I probably gained weight during the hike! Overall, an amazing experience that I will always be grateful for, I could not recommend Tanzania Horizon Safaris any more!

We booked the trip from Dubai and was told that we had to have an insurance with World Nomads, this would give us evacuation help in case of any danger on the mountain. When one of us had to be evacuated from the mountain with very very low oxygen in the blood there was no rescue by helicopter or anything as promised and the answer was "currently they dont operate" but why did we then have to buy it? The guide on the mountain had no idea of how the oxygen worked and suggested that they took me to a lower altitude, where my friend was smart enough to say that i needed oxygen ASAP. He then gave me oxygen as the guides didnt knew how it worked. After that i was rushed to base camp and on the way fainted two times. When finally reached base camp after 2 hours running base camp didnt had any oxygen and i had to run 3 hours more down. A company with no structure and plan especially when it comes to evacuating people.

Kelvin , "You did not "almost die".   First of all, we note your comments. We appreciate receiving feedback from everyone, whether good or bad and always respond to every review on this platform. Secondly, readers should be aware that Tanzania Horizon Safaris guides have extensive medical training. They take courses before becoming licensed by the park and receive continuing education from us. They conduct twice daily health checks using a pulse oximeter to monitor oxygen saturation and pulse rate.  They administer the Lake Louise Scoring System (LLSS) to help determine whether someone has altitude sickness and their severity. They are certified Wilderness First Responders (WFR). They are also highly experienced in preventing, detecting and treating altitude sickness because they handle over 1,000 climbers per year. As a company, we have guided more than 1,000 people to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Our safety practices have never been questioned! Our findings are presented below. The truth is that your oxygen level was measured constantly by our main guide. You ignored the warnings by our guide and wanted to proceed. At 5200m you were again advised to descend because your oxygen level had dropped significantly. You were given supplemental oxygen by our team. As our records show, your oxygen level increased from 68% SpO2 to more than 80% SpO2 which made it possible for you to descend by walking. You were then accompanied by our assistant guide and an additional porter and made it back safely to your accommodation while the other two climbers successfully reached the summit. We always recommend to all our clients to carefully listen to the advice of our experienced guides at all times and if you will climb this mountain gain in the future kindly listen to your guides when they give you advice. CONCLUSION: Thousands of people have stood on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro with Tanzania Horizon Safaris and Our Kilimanjaro guides are very experienced, with most having climbed well over 100 times. They are professionals who intimately know the mountain and your safety is the highest priority for us. Our clients put their lives in our hands and trust us to keep them safe; we do not take that responsibility lightly. Kind regards, Elizabeth Sales & Guest Relations Manager

Despite the Covid-19 situation we decided to go climbing Kilimanjaro in May 2021. This trip was planned for a long time, and after searching we found Tanzania Horizon Safaris and we could not be happier. My team was 13 people… all friends and we came from Palestine. Some of them were first time to climb a mountain. And the good news that all of us (13) made it to the summit. We took the Machame route in 7 days, but we managed to finish the mountain in 6 days… 4 up and 2 down. The head guide Mr. Jounus was a very experienced guide and knows how to lead the team, and the crew on the mountain was amazing and helpful at all times. On top of that very easy and clear communication from beginning to the end. Tents and camping equipment were excellent, food on mountain were also excellent and large portion were provided… nobody feels hungry! Management of the company (Elizabeth) helped us a lot in Moshi town for hotel booking and PCR tests in the hospital. All trip aspects were managed perfectly… nothing at all to complain about. For me, this was my second time to summit Kilimanjaro, and I will do it again and again… and all with Tanzania Horizon Safaris. I highly recommend this company.

Despite the covid situation we decided to go to Tanzania for climbing Kilimanjaro and doing a 3 days safari. We choose Tanzania Horizon after some research and we could not be happier. Both crew on the mountain and the safari was amazing and super helpful at all times. On top of that very easy and clear communication from beginning to the end. If you go to Tanzania and want to see the country in its best possible way, book with these guys! Thanks a mill again 🙏🏻
