We did 7-day Machame route in early October with ClimbKili – great service, 100% of us did it to the top, winners’ atmosphere and the gorgeous mountain itself – everything went perfect! The guide/company attributed a lot to our success – carrying all our stuff, setting the tents, cooking for us, singing to cheer us up, constantly checking our oxygen level and simply doing the best for us to enjoy the journey! Bringing hot coffee to the tent in the mornings is beyond expectations and baking the birthday cake at almost 5’000 is unbelievable!
The hiking itself wasn’t demanding at all, apart from the summit day. On most days we would start at 9 am and by 3-4 pm we would already be at the camp with all the tents set up. The summit day is pretty wearing, it’s probably the only day which I would call ‘climbing’, but it’s something you should expect going to ca. 5’900 m mountain.
The weather in October was changeable – from hot (wearing t-shirts) to bloody raining to sunny to windy. The coldest temperature we had was predictably at the summit night, about -7 -10C, but since you constantly move up, it doesn’t feel that cold.
I booked Climb Kili after looking at other reviews and saw that many people had great experiences with the company. I AM SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL I CHOSE THEM.
Kilimanjaro: I was traveling with my cousin and 5 other hikers on the 8 day Lemosho route in early October 2019. Herment was the lead guide with Goodlove and Amani assisting along with Justin, the AMAZING cook, and 20 porters. Herment has 15+ years on the mountain and it shows. Our group felt so fortunate to have him lead the team. We always felt like we got the best spots at the camps and the team’s energy was contagious. The porters were incredible in setting everything up and breaking down in what always seemed like minutes. I can truly say I would not have made it up that mountain without them – especially Herment who was alongside the entire way. We encountered rain, sleet and snow and I can still say it was an awesome trip and experience. Do not hesitate to book with Climb Kili!!! You will not regret it.
Safari: We decided to tag on a 3 day safari (flight out of Arusha airport to the Serengeti then a drive back to Arusha) afterwards and Charles – our guide was also amazing. Full of knowledge and the best animal spotter there is. We were lucky that the first day we saw almost all of the big five – including an elusive leopard. By the time we got to the crater, we hit them all. We stayed at Kilima Valley Serengeti Tented Lodge and the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge while on Safari. Both had spectacular views – Kilima had a breathtaking sunrise view of the Serengeti and the most comfortable beds- and the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge had an incredible chef that we were fortunate to experience during our stay.
Tanzania will hold a special place in my heart and it’s because of Climb Kili that I can say that and all their work and coordination to make this trip so memorable.
We chose the 8 day Lemosho route with Climb Kili. We had done exstensive research prior to choosing a company, and Climb Kili seemed to have great reviews. Let us tell you, they really are the absolute best! Our amazing guides, Hermant, Goodlove and Amani ensured not only that we had a fabulous time, but that everyone in our group had their health closely monitored. They were personable, friendly, professional and we really trusted their experience.
We also had amazing porters, their enthusiasm was second to none, they all were looked after well, friendly and really made time at the camp fun and memorable.
I was hit with altitude sickness on day 4, and the guides did a great job at monitoring my health and making me feel calm and looked after.
The food was amazing, I had no idea food could taste so good on the side of the mountain (thanks to Chef Justin!).
The porters did an incredible job of always ensuring the camp was set up prior to our arrival into camp (how they miraculously did this, I will never know!).
Summit night was hard, we got hit with a blizzard, butt he guides always remained calm, just kept us going and stayed really positive. Our whole group submitted, and made it back down safely.
We really believe this is due to the experience of the guides, the support of the porters and the pride Climb Kili as a company takes, in ensuring the safest and most prepared teams guide you up the mountain.
We would highly highly recommend booking with Climb Kili.
Thank you Climb Kili for making our once in a life time adventure a success!
We hiked up Mt. Kilimanjaro with wonderful trusted staff from Climb Kili. They pitched our tents, cooked our food, filled my hot water bottle, carried my pack, and held my hand on the difficult parts. They were amazing and professional. Very hard workers and friendly.
We did the 8-day Lemosho route with Climb Kili and added a 3 day safari in October, 2019. It was the best trip of my life. Climb Kili has really mastered the entire process end-to-end — but most importantly on the mountain. We got all of our questions answered from the home office (Tiffany Watson was great), and all of the airport/hotel accommodations were terrific and well coordinated.
The trek itself is very challenging — it was the hardest thing I have ever done. Our lead guide was Hermant Mosha, and he was fabulous. He has tons of experience on the mountain, takes his guide duties very seriously (but is also fun), and leads a great team on the trek. Our team was up early, cooked great food on the mountain, hustled ahead of us to get to the best camp sites, and laughed and sang the whole way. We felt their support day in and day out. Hermant and the two assistant guides (Goodlove and Amani) were spectacular. They had us very well prepared for summit day, monitored our health closely on the mountain, and just made me feel totally secure. Kili is no joke, and we saw other hikers in distress on the mountain — and frequently their guides would seek out Hermant for advice. He is clearly the guide among guides.
After our trek (our whole team summited successfully) we did a 3 day safari. This was also spectacular and well managed. Charles was our safari guide, and knew so much about the animals, and we saw EVERYTHING! He knew exactly where to look for the most difficult to find animals. Staying at the Kilima Tented Camp and the Ngorogoro Wildlife Lodge was spectacular — terrific views, great staff, and a truly unique experience at both places. We had a terrific trip. Can’t thank Climb Kili enough
Having read the reviews of Climb Kili we were confident that we had picked the right company for our Kilimanjaro climb and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived at The Summit Safari Lodge the staff were very attentive and made sure we were always prepared for departures etc, the local Climb Kili staff would provide briefings pre-departure. Our mountain guide, Amani, was extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He made sure that we were safe at all times and was very knowledgable about plants etc on the mountain.The porters were incredible, they were always happy and showed super human strength by carrying the equipment between camps.The camp chef prepared fantastic meals and despite limited cooking equipment was able to put together both fantastic and varied meals.After our Kilimanjaro trek, we booked a 2 night safari which included an overnight stay at the breathtaking Ngorogoro Crater Lodge. Both Tarangire National Park and The Crater were amazing parks to visit and contained an abundance of wildlife. The Crater Lodge offers spectacular views, lovely meals and well appointed rooms.
I am glad we chose Climb Kili and highly recommend booking with them.
If you are looking into climbing Africa’s tallest mountain, Kilimanjaro, this company Climb Kili is your Best Option. Not only do they have the highest success rate but they also do Safaris, so you can tack that on at the end of the climb!
I wanted to take a moment to tell you how fortunate I feel to have been guided by Seraphim, Mike and Johnny.
I couldn’t have asked for a better group! I got I’ll the last day from the altitude, and I feel Seraphim took care of me as if I was his daughter. He was worried for me and did the best thing that he could to help me. He is professional and communicated clearly. He is a very hard working man and it is evident in his knowledge of the mountain and how to lead his group. His leadership & pure heart for what he does was a breath of fresh air, worry off my back, especially because we were entrusting him with our lives.
Johnny took real good care of me as I needed to be guided down separately from the group to get me to a lower elevation. He was wonderful to have.
Mike was always keeping up with us. He is very smart on that mountain and always was there to lend a hand up and down.
I couldn’t of asked for a better group of guys in the porters, server and cook. I am so blessed to finish and it was because of them we survived.
I miss their bright souls and songs sung in their language every day!
Tiffany at ClimbKili was extremely helpful in planning the trip. They keep their trips down to 6 people or less, which makes it much more personal. Our trip had 3 people. The guides and porters were great. The food was also great. Special should out to our guides Mrope and Felix for keeping us going. After seeing other guided groups in the camps, I am glad I went with ClimbKili. They provided just the right level of support, not too much and not too little.
Tiffany also arranged a trip to Zanzibar for me, which was very enjoyable and needed after the long Lemosho route
As a solo woman hiking Kilimanjaro my concerns for food, and security were high. I feel now that choosing Climb Kili was a great decision. I was the only client for my hiking day, so I had eighth guys working just for me, and they totally spoiled me, motivated me, and made feel that I was in the right hands.
I was really sick for altitude on summit night, and my guide and personal potter never gave up on me, they were singing, dancing and motivating to continue to the top. They help was priceless.
Absolutely #1…. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
I’ve done quite a bit of travel and I must say ClimbKili had the best preparation guide I’ve ever seen. They sent a little book to prepare us which was superb. Tiffany (the US rep) was always a phone call away and happy to answer any questions as we prepared for the trip. Extremely professional and organized!
We did 7 day Rongai (up). Our team of guides and porters were absolutely terrific if every possible way. The lead guide, Meckson, was experienced (over 200 times to the top) and very knowledgeable. The assistant guide, Gideon, is probably the nicest person in Tanzania… The 9 porters, including the cook, were so very nice. We laughed and sang and danced and played cards with them. They always had smiles and positive vibes for us. How they carry such a heavy load, I don’t know… but they do it with smiles and thumbs up. The food was wonderful… just too much… we brought a bunch of snacks thinking we would be hungry or not like their food… in the end, we never ate any of our snacks. The food we were served in a private dining tent was wonderful and more than we could possibly eat.
We did get a private toilet /toilet tent (would recommend that)…not that the public toilet huts are gross, it’s just so nice having a private tent and somewhere to sit down.
We were also worried about the water… but they have that covered too. Always had plenty of water, purified and it actually tasted really good!
Just can’t say enough good things about ClimbKili… I would recommend them to anyone!
