Here’s one of our favorite summit photos. We plan on leaving a review for the group as well. Goodluck and good team were great! They made us feel like family, inspired us to keep pushing, and were nothing short of amazing in what they’re able to do on that mountain. Our Safari guide, Jephter was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to as well. Overall amazing experience and we would recommend this entire group to anyone looking for this experience.
Thank you for coordinating!
We had the MOST incredible experience with ClimbKili and cannot recommend them enough! After researching many different trekking companies we decided on ClimbKili after they came recommended to us several times from a local hiking group. We decided to climb and then go on a safari afterwards, and both experiences were AWESOME! While in the planning stages it was awesome to talk with Tiffany who answered all of our (many) questions before-hand and helped us to plan our dream trip and made the process so easy! When we landed in Tanzania and arrived at the Summit Lodge, Sia was there to greet us and was so kind and welcoming. She answered all of our questions about the climb, made sure we were prepared, and even helped us arrange a last-minute tour on one of our free days! Thank you, Sia J
We did the Machame route and our entire team of 20+ ClimbKili staff was incredible! We had Veda as our head guide, and Matthew and Steve as assistant guides. They were the best and were always checking in to see how we were doing and encouraged us every step of the way! They are truly experts at what they do and it’s clear how much they love the mountain. The support from our guides was wonderful and our whole group of 6 summited on 2/14! I also need to thank Innocent who was so incredibly kind, thoughtful, and hard-working and made our days so special with tea and popcorn J I really can’t thank our team of WONDERFUL porters enough. They are true superheroes and our trek wouldn’t be possible without them.
Lastly I must thank Charles who is the best safari guide you could ever ask for! It’s clear he loves his job, and his 16+ years experience of leading safari tours really shows! He knows so much about every animal and plant and I would say it’s impossible to stump him with questions. I so appreciated Charles’ enthusiasm and it was so thoughtful of him to ask what we were interested in seeing, and he really made every effort possible for us to see the animals we wanted to! Between Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire National Park we were able to see the Big 5 in less than a day and a half! We will be back one day (hopefully soon) to do another safari with Charles!
I have just returned home from my first visit to Africa. Myself and two friends climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Climb Kili. I can’t speak highly enough of my experience. We chose the 8 day Lemosho Route. Our head guide was James 007, and our assistant guide was Good Luck Minja. All three of us made it to the summit. Our crew, all 13 of them, were happy, friendly, encouraging, excited, proud, helpful, amazing! I am so grateful for everything they did to get me and my friends to the top, actually 2 days earlier than we’d planned. The experience of our guides made me feel safe and I trusted them 100%. They knew when we were strong and could power ahead. They knew when I was struggling and helped carry my gear and give extra support without me ever asking. They knew what to say to encourage me when I wanted to quit. Absolutely incredible. I will be forever grateful for what James, Good Luck, and the whole crew helped me achieve. We did a safari to the Gnorongoro Crater which Climb Kili organised for us as well, very last minute. It was amazing, and so easy to have everything arranged effortlessly for us, including a packed lunch. We saw so many animals, it really was incredible! Thanks so much Climb Kili. Your services will be highly recommended. The staff at the hotel, the crew, our amazing guides… it was all perfect!
I cannot thank enough each one of your staff who contributed to my success. It was my first hike, dreaming big is one thing but making it possible isn’t that easy. Up on the mountain it depends on every one who is with you, who is making it easy for you in every step. It sure is a great task. To provide the facilities we enjoy elsewhere on the barren mountain is an impossible task and the team not only provided it for us but with always a cheerful attitude. I cannot make exceptions here on the members just because we saw interacted with some closely. They all are were very nice, we had such a great time with them with the dancing! The made our journey easy for us. Simon always left us wondering what surprise awaited us in the dining tent, we looked forward to our meals. Miss Nestor who was so polite and sweet but so agile on the mountain with his load. We loved our team and happy we were with ClimbKili than other company on few ocassions we met other hikers.
And about our Guides. Raymond, Dastan and Tumaini who guided us to our victory. I have to say Raymond and Dastan were exceptional. As i said before it was my first ever hike, since I live in Bahrain I didn’t get to do any practice hikes. I also am scared of heights and I have weak knees. They both stepped in to help me and took turns in holding my hand during the descent. I hadn’t used walking poles before and if not for their help I sure would have injured my knee. Also Dastan helped me during my ascent when I said about my hurting knees. You have an amazing team and it is so well organized. I would suggest Climbkili to anyone who asks me about Kilimanjaro. I attribute my success to Climbkili and am so grateful that I chose the right company
My daughter and I engaged Climb Kili for our hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro. We were very pleased with every part of the experience.
From my initial inquiry, Tiffany responded promptly and answered every question. The billing process was efficient.
The jumping off point in Arusha was the Summit Lodge, where it appears Climb Kili has a permanent office and a great working relationship with the hotel. The hotel was out of the city center (which is a good thing). It was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the restaurant served nice meals.
The hike itself was well organized, with seamless logistics, top notch equipment and professional guides/cooks/porters.
One of the factors making the trip run so well was the Lead Guide – Herment. He managed his team through ever changing weather conditions and customer needs, while making it look easy and ensuring that all of the customers had a good time.
If you are looking for a well-run organization to take you up Kilimanjaro, you could do no better than Climb Kili. Ask for Herment as your guide, and tell him Brett sent you.
ClimbKili was an awesome company!! They picked/dropped me off at the airport and my fee included lodging which made everything a one stop shop. I went as a solo traveler, Johnny and his team ensured I was taken care of at all times! Many companies I saw did not have their guide carry oxygen which was another reason I chose ClimbKili. I initially had chosen to do 7 day Machame but requested to change it 6 days and ClimbKili was flexible and let me change!
I can strongly recommend Climbkili as the ultimate guided experience on Mt. Kilimanjaro.
First and foremost, I am grateful we had Herment Mosha as our guide. He has all the qualities of the best guides-extremely knowledgeable, superb athleticism, safety-minded, kindness, friendliness, and empathy. He also has tremendous management skills as I noted with his interactions with the other Climbkili guides and staff. I have had over forty mountain guides in various locations and I can say that Herment stands with the best. In the U.S., the best mountain guides are called the “guide’s guide” as other guides aspire to be as good as them. Herment is a “guide’s guide.” This man has over 174 summits on Kilimanjaro and the respect that guide’s from other groups give him is noticeable. The assistant guides, Goodlove and Florian, were extremely strong and dedicated to the groups success also.
The entire staff of porters was amazing. Not only did they perform the superhuman feat of moving and setting camp each day, they saw to it that it was as comfortable as possible. The meals were plentiful, hot, and helped us maintain our energy. Even more extraordinary was the staff’s friendliness and palpable joy in their work despite how challenging it is. These men are world class athletes and they also had great song/dance routines in the morning to motivate us upwards.
Climb Kili is also one of the few groups that has a permit for the Kosovo camp. The benefit of the Kosovo camp for the final high camp cannot be underestimated and I think it is an advantage for Climbkili that distinguishes it from others companies. Gaining the extra distance and altitude above the standard Barack camp the day before the summit attempt is key to a higher success rate.
On behalf of my son, girlfriend , and her daughter,and myself, I feel gratitude towards the entire staff and Herment, and fortunate that we went with Climbkili for our successful summits on Kilimanjaro. I will always recommend Climbkili and Herment
Its been 2 weeks since I got back and still flying high of this amazing experience. I got noting but good to say about this company. super professional, always in communication. the guides was great, the food, the lodging, etc.
Herment was my tour guide. He was full hands on to make sure we have everything we need to have a successful trip . I felt Super save and taking care of the entire time.
Thanks for the great service
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.
