Climb of Mount Kilimanjaro(Kibo Mountain):
We want to thank again African Scenic Safaris and Antipas (our head guide) for the incredible experience of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, but also to all his team (Samwel - Assistant guide, Shavan - cook, Peter - Waiter, and all the porters). Antipas is an excellent, competent and very professional guide, always keeping an eye on you and on your health. Antipas was also very proactive and was looking the best way to adapt the route and schedule to our needs. If you are planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro (Kibo Mountain) then we recommend to hire Antipas as your head guide, you won’t regret it.
About the route, we think that the Lemosho route was the best choice for us in terms of difficulty and intensity, if you had some previous training before climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The day of the summit is the toughest day, you have to take into account that it could become very windy, like in our case, and you will feel the air way colder than the real temperature, so don’t forget your balaclava. After getting to Stella Point, the way to Uhuru peak was partially covered by snow and it became in some parts very slippery, nevertheless, we made it to Uhuru peak without special equipment for ice like spikes or ice cleats.
In general, we were very satisfied with the performance of African Scenic Safaris as well as with our route choice. We had a lot of fun and we will never forget this amazing experience.
6 days Safari:
We had the pleasure to spent our safari with our driver/guide David, which is very experienced and resourceful, and made it possible for us to watch the “Big Five” in the different parks, but also the rest of the animals such as cheetahs, jackals, hyenas, hypos, gazelles, wildebeests, zebras, elands, giraffes, among others. So, thank you very much David and African Scenic Safaris for this unforgettable time in Tarangire, Serengeti, Ndutu and Ngorongoro parks. By the way, if you have the chance to visit Ndutu, go for it, because it was the place with the most variety of animals, but also beautiful landscapes. Ngorongoro caldera has a beautiful landscape, watch it from the top!, and has also a great variety of animals and if your are patient you get to see the black rhinos, we got to see 6 of them.

Dear Jvega85

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review of you Kilimanjaro climb and safari with our various teams and it is wonderful you had such a memorable trips with us here at African Scenic Safaris. The climb is tough so congratulations for making it and it is wonderful to hear Antipas and his team took such good care of you.We appreciate you comments about the wind and the cold and also that you felt you were well advised about the route. It is great to give tips for others who may be considering climbing Kilimanjaro.

We are also pleased to hear you saw some many animals while on safari and that you saw all you wanted to see. Ndutu is an amazing area during the months of December to March when the zebras and wildebeests are in calving seasons.

You were very lucky to see Rhinos as not everyone who visit Ngorongoro is able to spot them so that must have been fabulous

It is wonderful to hear of you experiences and hope you will come back to Tanzania in the future

Kind regards

Absolutely incredible service provided by African Scenic Safaris! My Wife and I decided on a 14-day Mt. Kilimanjaro hike, with a safari on the second half. Based on their recommendation we opted for the 7-8 day Lemosho route up to Uhuru Peak, and we couldn't be happier with their advice, the route was beautiful and the longer trek allowed for better acclamation giving us the best chance for a successful summit. Our head guide, Antipus and assistant guide Isaac were incredibly experienced and were committed to our safety and well being, but without taking away from any of the adventure of fun of the incredible journey. The rest of our 13-man crew comprised of porters, cook, and wash facility carrier were friendly and committed to our success. Perhaps the most surprising part of the hike was how amazing the food was, 3 freshly cooked and delicious meals a day made sure we were always ready for more hiking, I dare say I probably gained weight during the hike!

For the safari portion of our trip, Jimmy was our guide, who was also incredibly knowledgeable and always ready to answer any question we had about any of the wildlife or the Tanzanian culture. We journeyed through Ngorongoro, Serengeti, and Tarangire. Thanks to his experience, Jimmy always knew the best locations in each park to see wildlife!

Overall, an amazing experience that I will always be grateful for, I could not recommend African Scenic Safaris any more!

From the very beginning of our experience, African Scenic was flawless. Rhiannon and Simbo helped us decide on the best route for us and on our requirements to give ourselves the best opportunity to summit. We chose the 8 day Lemosha with crater camp which we were excited about. On the trek the support and thoughtfulness by Joel our head guide and Emmanuel and Thomas, assistant guide was exceptional. They took into account our individual needs of our group and were very calm and experienced in dealing with our concerns. On my accent which I found difficult, I knew I would have to take it slow to finish, Thomas walked with me behind the rest of the group. His patience and friendly chatter kept me motivated and helped me make it down the mountain.
Tomsipho, head of camp and the crew of porters efficiently carried our tents, bags, equipment, food, usually on their head, leaving after us each day and then later passing us, always smiling and encouraging us, and then setting up the next camp before we arrived. Albert cooked the best meals for us, which was always welcome after hours of trekking. I only recently read how challenging it is to cook meals at high altitude which makes be realise how exceptional Albert’s food was, as no matter what the altitude was the food was delicious. To top it off our meals were served by Praygod who was friendly and chatty which lifted our spirits on days where we were exhausted. We loved the wake up coffees which definitely got us going in the mornings.
African Scenic is professional and the genuine care shown to us made our experience unforgettable. We feel privileged to have experienced Mount Kilimanjaro with African Scenic and met such an amazing group of people. Thank you so much.

Wow. I don’t know where to start. What an incredible adventure, made so because of the amazing team at African Scenic Safaris. They were so friendly & professional. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging and warm. They were always bringing out the best in us when things got tough and lifting our spirits with laughter, song and kindness. The food was delicious and plentiful, the waiters I miss so much, bringing me ginger tea! The porters were also professional, fast in setting up and dismantling camp, & friendly along the way. If you want the best experience from start to finish, with a team that treats their staff and guests so well, please look no further than African Scenic Safari.

Thank you so much Antipas, Godfrey, Mary, Rapha, Dixon, Peter, Nesto and the whole crew who made this a trip of a lifetime.

We just experienced the most magical family safari holiday with African Sceneic Safari. Our guide,Tom, was THE BEST!!! We travelled with our 10 year old and 8 year old as well as our mom. We saw a wildebeest birth, a cheetah chase and catch its prey, every animal on our list. Stayed at incredible lodges. Learned about the land, animals, maasai. We to visit and orphanage. So many laughs and memories that were made extra special because of this company and more so because of Tom. We recommend you book your safari through African Scenic Safari for a trip of a lifetime.
