We were a group of 8 friends from Germany and we did 8 days Lemosho route with Kili Vikings. It was absolutely amazing! All of us successfully reached the top, but we wouldn’t have made it without the whole team around our guides Michael, Juma and Protas. They really tried their best to let us have a wonderful time on the mountain by carrying our stuff, good talks during the hikes, setting everything up in the camps, cooking the best food and much more… We are so thankful for every single person of the team. They were the best!
The only reason why we decided to subtract one star is because we had some paying issues beforehand. The paying process took a looooooot of time because it couldn’t be done as arranged via e-mail, although we asked more than one time that we would like to pay with credit card. At the end it was a bit complicated, but we managed it some way. That's why we recommend you to talk about all details of your trip very precisely with the owner Charlie, so there won’t be any misunderstandings like we had.
But besides from that, we definitely would recommend you Kili Vikings for your Kilimanjaro experience, especially because of the team who pushed us up to the top and made our time so special. Thanks a lot and see you soon! - Isabelle and friends

We combined a 7 day Kilimanjaro Climb with a 5 day camping safari afterwards. Charlie answered all our questions fast and made a very reasonable offer. The organization was all over very good.

Our guides on Killmanjaro Michael and Protas are the very best! Caring, motivating and just great people! Also our cook Thomas and the porters were just amazing and so nice. The food was fantastic and fresh everyday. We couldn’t have a better Kilimanjaro experience :)

On safari our guide was great as well: Francis told us so much about the different parks, species, plants and history and was a really fun and nice guy to be with on the 5 day trip. Our cook Freddy made sure we had the best food we could have wished for.

We would always recommend Kilimanjaro Vikings :)

We did a 5 day safari trip and a 5 day cultural tribal tour. The Safari was great, we saw every animal we wanted to see and the itinerary was well planned. The cultural and tribal tour was awesome! It’s an experience I would recommend to everyone! We got to know the local villages and different activities with the tribes!
We had the same driver for both and different cook for each trip. Francis was our driver and he was the best: very competent, knowledgeable, flexible and fun to have around, I advise to ask for him as your driver! The two cooks were excellent and the food was always delicious and of high quality!
We are two students and we had a budget for both tours (so we were camping), Charlie offered us a price that was very reasonable compared to others and the quality was the same.
The only slightly negative thing was that we were staying in Moshi at the beginning, in-between the two tours and at the end, and it’s farther from the parks than Arusha. We lost some time going back and forth but in the end it worked out.
We recommend both trips with Kilimanjaro Vikings for anyone.

Wonderful. We had 10 in our group with ages from 15-74 and all of us summitted. We followed the Viking team’s advice of walking slowly and of taking sips of water during the hike.

We booked our Kilimanjaro trip with Kilimanjaro Vikings back in August 2022. From the beginning of the trip, Charlie & team made sure we had a great experience at all times. The team was highly professional, the price was reasonable and the overall experience was unforgettable. Our guides went above and beyond to adapt the trip to our needs & preferences, showing us parts of the mountain that were a bit off the beaten path, which only made the whole experience better. I would recommend Kilimanjaro Vikings for anyone interested in having a tremendous value-for-money climbing experience.

Me and my girlfriend wanted to combine climbing Kilimanjaro with the Migration Safari. I contacted few different companies to have an idea of what possibilities i could chose from, Charlie was very fast responding and he took the time to answer all my questions and clarify all my doubts. Now that i completed my adventure i'm happy we chose Charlie over the other companies because everyone was offering basically the same services and the price we paid was way more honest then other quotes i requested in the first place, on top the whole experience was simply perfect. We got picked up at the airport and driven to a nice Hotel, Charlie came in the morning to introduce us to our guide, brief about the program and make sure we had everything we needed. Big shout goes to Michael and Protas our guides that took us to the top of the Kilimanjaro, is something i wish everyone could try once in their lifetime, as passionate about the mountain as i am i have to say this was something else, truly magic. After the climbing we had an emergency back home and we had to take a flight even if we were supposed to start the safari the day after. Charlie without any problems offered us to change the dates and gave us the possibility to postpone it. I didn't know what to expect from the Safari but then straight from the beginning i was surprised about how close you can make encounters with so many Animals, the whole week was truly overwhelming, we left without having enough of the game drives. Important to note that Francis our guide is an incredible professional driver, we always felt safe with him. Conclusion is we can't but recommend Kili vikings.

I had a great experience on each day.
We traveled with a driver/guide and a cook.
They were very experienced and friendly.

Thanks to Louis (Driver/Guide), we could see so many animals.
We found a rhino in Serengeti and many cars followed a rhino.
Louis decided to stop following the rhino so that we can find lions.
After that, we found many adult lions and their babies eating a buffalo.
We could see them very close so we could even feel the smell.

Thanks to Jimmy (Cook) , we enjoyed delicious food every day.
I will never forget that moment we had a breakfast in from of many zebras.

Highly recommended Company!!!!

モシ発、タランギーレ・セレンゲティ・ンゴロンゴロの3泊4日のキャンプツアーに参加しました。
ドライバー兼ガイド、コックの2人が4日間ずっとおもてなしをしてくれました。
2人とも経験豊かで、とても充実したサファリになりました。

獲物の臭いがキツイと感じるほど近くで、ライオンの家族がバッファローを食べているのを見た時には感動しました。

この会社は日本人のお客さんが多く、評判もいいのでお勧めです!

I found Kilimanjaro Vikings in a brilliant book about Mt Kilimanjaro. Charlie the owner was very responsive and provided precise information about the trip. After comparing ca 12 offers, I selected Kilimanjaro Vikings based on an overall impression, information, price, and reviews.
When I landed in Tanzania, the chief guide, Scoba Happygod, waited for me at the airport with the transfer. Upon arriving to Moshi, I paid the outstanding balance and we checked my gear together. Next day, we departed on the Machame Route 6d/5n.
Everything went very smooth. Scoba Happygod, the chief guide is very knowledgeable and polite. He was very clear every time about the plans and how to prepare. The motivation he provided on the summit night was critical to reach the crater of Kilimanjaro.
We had an excellent assistant guide, Gaudis, who is always positive and full of energy. Sometimes he was going ahead, leading the team, carrying our lunch to Lawa Tower and Kili crater.
The food in Tanzania is super tasty, and our cook, Thomas, prepared every dish with special care. I'm vegetarian while my improvised climbing partner, Chiaki, does eat meat, but it was not an issue at all for Thomas. We enjoyed the warm fulfilling and tasty dishes every time.
The porters did an extremely heavy job carrying each 20kg. Honestly, they are not very well equipped and for some this is the first time on the mountain. But they did a tremendous job carrying our tent, gear, food, etc. We were very lucky with the weather as it did not rain during the 6 days in November, which is the short rain season (this is exceptional!). During the final ceremony and tipping, we slightly increased the porters tip and I left some of my gear to them, which was much appreciated.
Once finished my trip in Tanzania, I got the transfer from Moshi to the airport. All went very smooth and well!

Only recommendation to the agency is to mention that one porter will have extra activity being the waiter (keeping the dining tent clean and tidy, serving food, washing dishes) and double check that porters have the minimum gear for cold and wet conditions.

For travellers, I can highly recommend Kilimanjaro Vikings (Charlie), chief guide Scoba Happygod, and assistant guide Gaudence. They are a great team! I saw that some other agency adds some extra show (i.e songs and dance in the morning), but I found that a bit too funny anyway. Also, like me you might consider too to increase the tip for the porters and/or leave some gear behind for them.
