    The trip was booked by my parents before my wife and I decided to join them. So we followed the program my parents made. We would certainly have done some things different. The first 3 days was a lot of travelling. First the 9 hour flight from A'dam to Kilimanjaro. We fly BC but still it is exhausting. Our guide Jamal waited for us at the airport. Jamal is a very good travel companion, really skilled ranger, driver and with a good sense of humor. Love this guy and he was my 'little' brother for 8 days. After landing we had an hour drive to the hotel. The next day we were in the car for 9 hours, travelling and visiting lake Manyara. The 3rd day we had to travel again 9 hours, allthough the information from Makasa mentioned 4-5 hours, to Kimbilio tented camp. The length of this drive was disappointing and to exhausting! Jamal did his best and drove like Max Verstappen (very safe!) but still .... the 4 days at Kimbilio was an excellent experience! See my review. We left Serengeti to drive to the next stay at Ngorongoro Crater. Beautiful wildlife and Park for 1 day. Good planning. The Melia lodge is not so good, but we asked ourselves to book this, so not Makasa to blame. See my other review of the lodge. After 2 nights Jamal drove us to the airport Arusha for our flight to Zanzibar. He helped us with everything, check in et cetera and we said goodbyes and we really miss Jamal! My parents went with Jamal to a Masai camp. In Zanzibar our transfer waited for us and the Next Paradise resort (thank you Selma, Makasa for the tip!) is stunning! See my review. 5 days beach was relaxing and lovely.

    So in the end. Makasa did overall a great job! Good information before the trip, Jamal perfect match for us, transfers, lodges and hotels all booked, no hustle. And what I appreciated, easy to reach by email and phone. We can recommend Makasa !

    What a relaxing place after a long safari experience. I highly recommend going there during the weekdays as the weekend may be a bit crowded. I reached out to different local guides for the organization but Amani was very good at communication and also his offer was affordable. If you're looking local guide Amani is the person to go with! you can WhatsApp him at +255743900014

    It's almost an hour drive from Moshi and about an hour hike thereafter. The waterfall definitely worth a visit. I have visited many waterfalls in different parts of the world. This is a great water fall.
    An underrated one!!!
    Even the hike in itself is beautiful. One is walking through lush farmlands.
    The coffee tour which most tour companies attach with this is underwhelming

    This was a once in a lifetime experience. Me and my family (kids aged 9 and 12) stayed at the Olpopongy Maasai village for 24 hours. The night we in the maasai boma - the boma is very basic but comfortable, for one night is totally OK. I think this is the best way to experience and understand the maasai culture. The lecture in the maasai museum was so educative, the people there were so knowledgeable, they took us on a long bushwalk and taught us about the plants and natural medicines, about the animals and how they behave. The cook was also amazing, food was super delicious, breakfast was great. The greeting dances were memorable. In the night as there is no electricity in the village we saw so many stars. And the view to mount Kilimandjaro from the village is spectacular as well.
    Thank you for the great memories!

    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.

    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.

    Wow!! The team that took us to Mount Meru were absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for a better head guide than Emmanuel - he is knowledgeable, helpful and very organised. The rest of the crew were terrific - Malik, ensuring that we ate more than enough each meal / William, cooking incredible meals / Michael, helping carry my backpack on the way down when I was a bit exhausted / every team member was amazing!!
    Mount Meru was challenging - more physically challenging than I expected but so worth it.
    Altezza Travel are amazing - the staff are so helpful, from the team coming on the trek to the support staff back at the hotel. Very professional - would highly recommend.

    We had the most incredible 6-day safari, escorted by our guide Essau who was fabulous - knowledgeable and friendly and at all times prepared to go the extra mile (sometimes literally) to ensure that we had a totally memorable experience. Everything went smoothly from the booking to our departure and this was due to the attention to detail and vast experience of the Monkey Adventures team who are great. We cannot thank them enough for a truly unforgettable safari and I would do it all again in a heartbeat!!

    I am ending my time in Tanzania, having climbed Kilimanjaro with Pristine Trails, on a complete high. This has been a truly life-enhancing experience; not just because we were able to summit on the most glorious morning but because of all the people involved in making it happen.

    From Kim at Head Office handling the initial booking to Joel in Moshi and then the incredible team who led us on our 9-day Northern Circuit trek, everyone has been amazing. I would go so far as to say faultless...or as far as I am concerned it was faultless because if there were any issues, we never found out about them. Either Joel or Goodluck (our Lead Guide) quietly sorted things discretely, so that our entire trip went smoothly.

    Our group consisted of 5 with 27 Pristine porters, special porters, cooks, assistant guides and a Lead Guide - all these people made our successful ascent possible. Each day they would wake us with tea/coffee, provide warm water to wash in, have breakfast ready for when we got up and when we started the day's trek, everything would be packed up, carried to the next camp and all set up ready for our arrival. Sometimes our porters even came back to help carry our daysacks. It was all quite humbling. On arrival, tea would be served followed by dinner - if anything, there was too much to eat.

    The trek team at Pristine are a credit not only to their company but to the stunningly beautiful Tanzania. While I'm not sure I'd climb Kili again (it's a gruelling challenge), I will definitely return to Tanzania but this time, maybe a more sedate safari and definitely with Pristine.

    I can't say enough good things about Gladys Adventure. We booked our whole trip through them- the 8 Day Lemosho trek, a pre-trek waterfall and coffee farm tour, and a 4 day safari. The whole trip was absolutely epic and one of the coolest things I've ever done.

    There are a million Kilimanjaro trek companies but Gladys is really the best of the best. Climbing Kili is no small thing but we felt like we were in great hands and so well supported. From the pretrek briefing to summit night, it was clear how much effort Gladys puts into making sure you are safe and comfortable. We also really appreciated how our porters had legit gear. Other groups porters were climbing in crocs and converses but every Gladys porter had decent hiking boots.

    I can't have imagined a better group of people to have as porters and guides: Amosi, Foustin, Johari, Erasto, Stephen, Pius and especially our chief guide, Diclan. Our guides knew the trail like the back of their hands to the point that they'd jump ahead to provide a hand on any tricky bits. Diclan has climbed Kili hundreds of times and has so much experience managing altitude sickness and other ailments that happen on the mountain. The porters also made everyday special - Amos was always trying to feed us slightly more than we could eat and Erasto made magical moments by leading the group in song. It's hard to put into words how special and awesome this group of people is. I can't imagined the experience with anyone else.
