    We have an amazing experience during our tour! Our guide, Sylvester, made everything interesting but above all fun; he's the best guide!
    Even if the weather was not perfect we enjoyed a lot. I recommend this tour to everyone.

    We quite spontaneously asked about a program for two days, as an extra before our safari.
    He responded very quickly and gave us a great tour of Moshi the first day, including a visit to a local restaurant and markets. On the second day we went to the Materuni waterfalls, with great views. Also there he knew a local restaurant, which was great.
    In general we had a fantastic time with him, he was able to accommodate all of our wishes (pick-up from Boma Ng’ombe, getting a sim card during the city tour, …). Would highly recommend.

    Beautiful, tranquil place with beautiful people, inside and outside. Sarah is amazing, both at what she does and how she can keep you entertained by conversation. I will be coming back :)

    Incredibly professional company. Very quick to respond and help with any questions about the area you may have. Staff was always earlier than the planned pickup and very friendly.

    My husband and I had to travel by car from Moshi to Nairobi very last minute after our flight from JRO to NBO was cancelled.
    David was available within a very short time and he drove us safely to Nairobi airport. He also helped us get in contact with the airline we were meant to fly with (impossible using the official routes) and didn’t leave us until our ongoing journey was sorted. Not to mention how friendly he is!
    I can only recommend!!!!! Unparalleled taxi service.

    We did a 5 day safari trip of the three northern National Parks with Ali as our guide and he really found the animals. Everything went very smoothly. The lodges/hotels/tents were very nice. Clean and the staff was great at all the places. Only thing I wish was that they allotted more time to the crater. Food was great too. We saw the big five and so many more animals. I was so happy that I picked them. I would chose them again. Safari vehicles were clean, and in good shape.

    Monkey adventures provided us with the best memories of our life. Eddie and Gasper made the whole trip stress-free with their humorous and caring personality. They were amazing! Our stomach engineer cooked the most delicious meals and Baby face made sure all our smallest needs were met. WE couldn’t have made it to the top without the support of our wonderful team. We are very thankful for the amazing experience and ever-lasting memories. We highly recommend going with the same team!

    It was an amazing adventure, tough at times, but totally worth it!

    Kilimanjaro Heroes Adventures are a small company, very professional & welcoming, from the first point of contact to the last.
    The trekking team that helped me make my dream come true were all fantastic; always upbeat, with great morale & a smile.

    My guide, Gasper, helped me so much. He explained everything to me in a way that put me at ease, he guided me with great knowledge & always with high morale & he shared loads of interesting information throughout the trek.
    He also changed the route plan from 8 days to 7 days, at my request, which enabled me to have a walking partner for the Lemosho route. This made my trek all the more memorable.

    David, my day to day guy, provided my water & food & anything else I needed. Again he did it all with a smile & great manners. I was pleased he joined Gasper & I to the summit as I enjoyed both of their company.

    Abuu is a fantastic cook, everything tasted so good & was beautifully prepared (I was just sorry that my appetite was never high enough to eat it all). He deserves a lot of praise for his skills, especially in difficult camp conditions.

    Also a big thanks to the amazing porters, Wilson, Ramadhan, Eliya & Budikah, who made me feel welcome & all worked so hard to help me reach my goal.

    This was an experience of a lifetime.

    Thank you Kilimanjaro Heroes Adventures.

    I did a 7-day Kilimanjaro trek and a 3-day safari with Pristine Trails and both were absolutely incredible experiences. Kim was my guide on Kili and he was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and supportive. My team was amazing and made me feel so welcome - they even threw me a birthday party with a cake on the mountain on the last day! Truly professional and hospitable!

    Peter was my guide on the safari and he was a true professional as well. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly where to go to see all of the most incredible animal sightings including 4 of the big 5!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND Pristine Trails for Kilimanjaro AND safari!

    Thank you to Kim, Peter, and all of the Pristine Team who made for such a life changing adventure!

    If I can give this a 6 star review, I totally would!

    We arrived in Tanzania on our wedding anniversary and were greeted by Cynthia at the airport and taken to our hotel where there was a beautiful surprise waiting for us.

    We met our guide, Mohammed, the day before the hike for a briefing. He was kind, encouraging, and incredibly knowledgeable. He checked our clothing and decided that I needed an extra jacket for summit day, which we rented for an additional USD 15.

    Joachim gave us a walking tour of Moshi and helped us find the Parish Priest so we can go to a Catholic Vigil Mass and get a dispensation for missing Sunday Mass on our 8-day hike.

    We started our hike on 1 Oct with Mohammed as our Lead Guide and Nelson as the Assistant Guide. Brian, Zila, Ayubu, Fanuelly, Emmanuel, Felix, Shukuru, Dickson, Tony, Ramadhan, Ben, and Husseini were the most amazing, encouraging and kind porters. They would come back for our backpacks and walk with us and remind us to drink water when they were carrying our day packs for us. Also, I have no idea who to credit for this, but we always had these amazing camping spots where we didn't feel crowded and had amazing views.

    Jafari was our chef (and magician). How he managed to make us popcorn and pizza in the middle of nowhere, I will never know.

    We went on a 3 day safari with Said, who's command of English was amazing, he even reminded us that the wildebeest was not to blame for Mufasa's death, it's all on Scar. He was able to point out and explain interesting and amazing facts about every animal you can think of.

    This was truly an amazing 2 weeks in Tanzania. Asante sana to everyone at Popote :)

    My sister and I had a fantastic climbing experience doing the 7 day Lemosho route. The guides were incredible, so kind, experienced and professional. We were blown away by the whole team’s ability to work together and everything was well organized.

    We went in December of 2022 (I know - very overdue, wasn't able to go back earlier than May 2023) and did the 8-day Lemosho route

    Peak Planet was phenomenal. Our guides (especially our lead guide, Msuri) were phenomenal at what they did and were also very kind.

    Safety
    They were very good about checking in and knew when to call it for one of the people on our trip (early on on the ascent day). At one point, my wife was feeling very lightheaded and they kept us company for a few minutes to have some food and then a guide carried my wife's backpack for awhile on the ascent day. We would not have been able to get to the top without that piece of help. They really do everything they can to get you to the top but also know when to call it if things aren't going well.

    Climb
    The guides took a pace that seemed slow but was on purpose and got us everywhere we needed to get to (I say that as a positive). They did this to get as many people as possible (11/12 for our group) to the top - not to get there in record time. If your goal is to have the best chance of making it to the top, you should go with Peak Planet.

    Stays+Food
    This is what you'd hope for. I can imagine it could be more glamorous, but we weren't there to be pampered, and there was absolutely nothing uncomfortable. There were even two birthdays on our trip and they made a cake for each (I have no idea how they did this at that altitude). The food was also good (sometimes really good). Outside of one porridge we had for part of two of the meals, I really liked all the food.

    Overall Experience
    They did a perfect job. From start to finish, they were professional, kind, and wonderful hosts. I would fully recommend. If you're lucky enough to get Msuri as your lead guide, he is the ultimate leader - calm, confident, and knows his s***. Have fun!
