If you are like me, you are going to spend countless hours reading hundreds of reviews on the many companies to climb Kili with, but trust me, no need to keep searching, this is the most amazing company and will make your every Kili climb dream come true! The reason I chose Habari was that is was a local company, they took great care of their own staff/porters, the food was promised to be hot and delicious and they provide a flushing toilet (trust me, it makes a huge difference!)- but wow, the reviews didn't even begin to describe just how amazing this company is. From all of the correspondence with Stan and Catherine ahead of time, to their taking care of every little detail along the way to make sure you are as comfortable as possible and have the best time- I seriously felt like I was a VIP but I know they make everyone feel that way! From the day I arrived several hours late due to missing a connection, they were there at the airport smiling with my name on a sign and water/juice waiting for me in the car. To the accomodations (clean room, bar and pool!), to safety briefing, checking our gear (and lending us what we needed) and onto the climb- Priva the chef is some kind of chef slash magician- how he could put together the most delicious meals (I'm still in awe that we ate pizza and the best chicken wings Ive ever had at 15,000 feet)! We were literally waited on hand and foot, warm basins of water after every climb, private tents, checked our oxygen levels, made sure we knew the plan for every day and what to wear/pack. Every time, there was a smile, a helping hand, making sure we were having the best climb! I loved every single day of the climb- the summit was way more freezing than I could have imagined and brutal on the way down, but worth every single second to summit! Everyone in our group made it, even a 70 year old gentleman! I think they have a 100 percent success rate (or at least close to it) thanks to the skillful guides and incredible porter team! After the summit, I went to Zanzibar on my own and then came back to Habari for a 4 day safari- I was the only one that had signed up, so I ended up on an incredible four day private safari with an amazing guide Sharima! He was so knowledgeable about every animal, accomodating to my every wish and need, and ensured I felt safe and well taken care of every step of the way! The lodges were beautiful too! We saw the big five in our first day in the Serengeti, winning! Amazing experience Again, you will be thrilled you chose Habari for any of your Tanzanian adventures, but I can't imagine any experience better than the 7 day Lemosho route with them ! Just do it!

Whatever you want,either to hike Kilimanjaro or go on safari in Tanzania or visit the beaches on Zanzibar,Habari adventure is who you need to do it with. They start to care about you long before you land in Kilimanjaro airport. Of course there will be many questions for them,but they will respond promptly and clearly, so you will be at ease with this awesome trip. You will have a detailed list of what you need to have an enjoyable adventure to the top of mountain and if you don’t have something, they will provide rental equipment it for you. Four of us girls, we made all arrangements with them,including safari trip and beautiful Zanzibar. Everything was prepared and done with the best intentions and care and above our expectations. The hotels,transportation and all necessary arrangements were made by them,so we didn’t have to make any decisions or worry about anything just enjoy the whole once in a lifetime adventure. They will learn about your food preferences and allergies and make sure throughout the journey to the top,you will get all your needs addressed,like gluten-free foods or any other food needs. All four of us made it to the top with these amazing guides,porters,chef and all service personnel. Thank you Stan,Elias,Emanuel,Priva,Lenady and other hard working guys. Thank you for this life changing adventure and meeting those great people and new friendships created. Habari adventure is a local company and all the monies stay in the country and they donate 5% of their profit provide food and school supplies for the kids and in their spare time volunteer as teachers. I would highly recommend this company.

Dear Larisa, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a marvelous and positive review. We appreciate the feedback you have provided, it really means a lot to us as a local company and we promise to do more to the best of our ability. It is good to know that you enjoyed your time with everyone to our Team. Honestly we felt so special to celebrate Susan 60th birthday at the top of Kilimanjaro. Every minute we spent together was incredible. You came as a client but you leave as best friend ever. Your kindness, great ideas, smiles and positive minds is wonderful, and we will definitely miss you. I hope next time we will have an amazing time together in Kilimanjaro & Serengeti and do some community activities. I am sure all the crew will be overjoyed to hear you felt well-cared for! On the whole, we are glad that you enjoyed your experience with us and we very much hope to see you again in Tanzania soon. Karibu sana! With Love, Stan Wilfred (CEO)

Without exception, our 10 - day safari in early June with Habari adventure was outstanding. There were 9 family members in our private safari with two Land Cruisers. Both of our driver/guides were the best we could ever have hoped for. Alex and Jimmy were both very exceptional guides with each over 15 years experience leading groups through the magical of Tanzania's national parks. Each guide was so knowledgeable, friendly, told great stories, and knew where to find the best sites to photograph/film the animals. If you choose Habari adventure for your safari, which I recommend you do, request these guides to drive you. We stayed at three different lodges all booked with Habari (Melia Hotel, Marera Lodge, Serena Lodge & Embalakai Tented Lodge). The food was excellent, and the staff at each Lodge was so accommodating and friendly. Habari adventure took care of all the arrangements for each of the four parks we visited – Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, and Tarangire with Maasai Tour and visiting Hadzabe Tribe. Prior to the trip, we communicated with Catherine in the Habari adventure office. She was so helpful in helping us prepare for this adventure and was very responsive every time we emailed her. She's great. This trip was an amazing experience of a lifetime. Cant wait to come back next year for Kilimanjaro climbing & Safari.

My sisters and I summited June 8th 2022. It was unforgettable. Stan and his crew made it possible! They provided sleeping bags and sleeping pads, when one became sick they offered much needed medications, we even had our own toilet (God bless the men who cleaned it a few times a day!), when we needed to charge our phone- they got it figured out, they even send warm water and tea with us to help with cough. Priva was an amazing chef. He learned our likes and dislikes. We had delicious food! The best part are people that we met including Stan, Elias, Ima (Immanuel), and Leonady. The team provided structure, encouragement, help, and shoulder when needed. They changed my life.

I chose Habari Adventure after I read so many great reviews from Tripadvisor but I have not realized that company consist of such a nice and accommodating people, starting porters, summit porters, person who took care of our toilet, best cook on the mountain Priva (5-star restaurant chef), server – Leonady and 2 top notch and amazing guides, Ellis and Emmanuel. Only because of their knowledge and strong work ethics we were able to successfully go to the top. Our group consists of 4 girls. Everybody had a different skills and pace but our team was always accommodating and encouraging. We always felt safe and supportive every step of the way. I celebrated my 60th birthday on the top of Uhuru Peak with champagne and the cake (that Priva made it from scratch). It was unbelievable and the most amazing experience. Stan also organized our unforgettable Safari Adventure and trip to Zanzibar. The trip was exceptional and well organized. Pole, Pole, Jambo, Asante Sana to all people who made it possible for us to have an adventure of the lifetime! Habari Adventure is the best company on the mountain. If you decided between different companies, do not look any further. Habari Adventure also donates 5% of their profit to fund local kids’ education. Please choose this local Tanzanian company.
