    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!

    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 :)

    We had an amazing 7-day trip to the top of the Kilimanjaro! The whole team including our guides Freddy and Jerry helped us to accomplish our goal!

    A day before the trip, the head guide came to give us an extensive briefing and checked our gear. We chose not to bring our sleeping bags on the plane so they helped us to rent some good equipement.

    Every evening during the trip a briefing was given for the next day to prepare us and adjust the plan to reach each camp in time (before the rain) according to our fitness level. And every day the planning was correct!
    Also every night our oxygen level was measured to check how we were dealing with the altitude.
    We always felt safe!

    Great trip! Amazing experience!

    John arranged for a magical two-day safari for us to Tarangire and Ngorongoro. He had so much patience with all my questions and wishes and made out the route perfectly for our needs. Our driver and guide Raymos was great. He always found the best spots to see the animals and had so much interesting information to share. Simply a dream-trip!

    Our 5 day trip with Maua Adventures was fantastic. This was a tailor-made trip in cooperation with Jackson who made sure that all would go smoothly. Our flight to Kilimanjaro was cancelled last minute and the whole itinerary had do be moved back 2 days. This was extra work for Jackson that solved everything. Maua Adventures is a small company and this makes a difference. Most companies follow the main roads when going between places of interest but Jackson and our excellent driver/guide Magoma took us on the backroads in the middle of nowhere where we were able to enjoy wildlife and natural beauty without seeing other tourist. The highlight of our trip was the climb of Ol Doinyo Lengai and visit to Lake Natron. If you want a good climb of Kilimanjaro or a tailor-made trip in Northern Tanzania then Maua Adventures is the perfect option. Highly recommended.

    Excellent Communication, Maryo Tours and Travel was very responsive in answering all my questions and addressing my request. The safari itself was wonderful and our guide Jackson worked hard to make sure that we saw a large variety of animals.

    In October 2023 my son and I made a combined trip with Shimboni Africa Tours. We climbed the Kilimanjaro and made a Safari to the Ngorongoro Crater and to the Serengeti.
    For us every part of the trip was wonderful.
    We started with an acclimatization day at the Shimbwe Medows Lodge in Shimbwe Village. This gave us time to prepare for the Kilimanjaro.
    Also we got the opportunity to make an easy hike to the Materuni Waterfall and to get an impression of life in a Tanzanian village.
    We were very happy to enjoy the hospitality and kindness of Victor and his team at Shimbwe Meadows Lodge. The accommodation was very pleasant and quiet with a stunning view on Mount Kilimanjaro on a clear day.
    Also the food was delicious. I especially liked the oyster -nut-sauce which I never hat tasted before.

    For our Kilimanjaro tour we chose the Lemosho Route (8-day-trip). This proved to be a very good choice because on one hand it gave us enough time for acclimatization. On the other hand we had plenty of time to enjoy the magnificent and unique landscape at Kilimanjaro Nationalpark.
    All in all the tour was very well organized. The equipmet provided was just right for our needs and the crew was very kind and helpful an any time. Our guide Vicent and our assistant guide Revocatus were always ready to answer any question and to give us helpful instructions. With their help we successfully reached the summit. Thank you so much!

    Because we had some more days for our vacation we also went on safari to Ngorongoro Crater and to the Serengeti. Here we stayed in tents in the middle of nature and saw plenty of wildlife – the big 5 in only 2 days!
    We had memorable encounters with a great variety of African animals and made magnificent photos. Our very experienced English and German speaking guide Jimmy helped us a great deal to find the animals in the wilderness.

    Also on the financial side everything went well and without any problems. We payed half of the trip in advance and half of it cash on arrival. When we were on our Kilimanjaro-trip Victor kept the money that we brought to Tanzania and some of our camera-equipment safely in his house so we didn’t have to worry about anything.

    I would definitely recommend Victor and his team at Shimboni Africa Tours to anyone who would like to make a trip to Tanzania. Thank you for this magnificent experience!

    We had a very beautiful one day hike in the Kilimanjaro rainforest. We walked to the waterfall and it was a beautiful journey. I definitely recommend buying passion fruit that the locals sell on the roadside - it tastes heavenly. Since all the locals are big coffee lovers there, we were able to make coffee from raw coffee beans to the ready tasty cup of coffe. it is an unforgettable experience and definitely worth repeating. I bought coffe beans from there and every time I drink it I remember everything about it. I give 10 points for lunch - excellent, tasty dishes. Go and experience it for yourself.
