My husband and I went with Climb Kili for our 8 day trek on the lemosho route up Mt Kilimanjaro. Tiffany Watson was absolutely wonderful. She answered all my questions promptly and was so helpful in planning or holiday in Tanzania. We were met at the airport after a long trip from San Diego, CA and drive to Arusha to stay at the SGRESORT which was very nice and comfortable. The next morning we met a climb Kili staff member to see how we were and to inform us of our briefing and offer to take us to see the town of Arusha for the day. We met the rest of our group for the trek. There were 8 of us from USA, Canada, and AU. All the Climb Kili staff were so nice, fun, and helpful. Word of advice research and try out all of your equipment! And if you do forget something shop in Arusha before you had up the mountain. Our main guide Seraphine was awesome!! He has climbed the mountain over 250 times with hikers aged 10-83. His nickname is "Mr. 100%" and that is his #1 goal. To keep you safe, healthy, and make the Summit. I practiced Swahili for a few months before we went and Seraphine and the other guides especially Emanuel had fun teaching me new things. The mountain was beautiful and humbling. Kilimanjaro challenges you physically, mentally, and spiritually. One day after a long cold hike with rain, sleet, and snow Seraphine could sense we were down and he finished our nightly briefing with singing us a beautiful song to lift or spirits. We had three hour meals per day that were geared to give you the exact nourishment you need to stay healthy. The food was good and there was always more than enough. We successfully and safely summited and we could not recommend Climb Kili more!
