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!
I booked my trip with Climb Kili and Tiffany was fantastic with answering all my questions, arranging logistics, and making sure I had all the information to make the trek successful. I was traveling solo and having all the details fleshed out was a huge comfort.
Our 6-person team was led by three awesome guides. Raymond, Dustin, and Choda were the best. The nightly briefings provided by Raymond were super helpful. All three were hands on and made sure we were always comfortable, well-informed and having a good time. Simon cooked for us. He accommodated special dietary needs, prepared fresh vegetable soups each day, and even baked two cakes to celebrate birthdays in our group.
The whole team was in tune to how we were feeling and ensured we had everything we needed, even before we knew we needed it. I could not recommend Climb Kili more enthusiastically especially when led by Raymond, Dustin and Choda.” – Heather Foley, USA
I’ve attached a photo of myself at the summit also including the Manchester mind charity T-shirt that i have helped support during the lead up to my climb 🙂
I also want to thank everyone involved including yourself for making my experience from the start when i booked with yourselves at climbkili you have all been amazing & helped me from the start to finish making all run so smoothly for me & all the team of guides & porters for everything they did to help on my climb it was the most incredible / unforgettable experience i have ever had & i am eternally grateful for that! Also a thankyou to all the staff at the summit lodge & my Safari guide for being amazing too! There’s is nothing i would of changed nor do i have any negative feedback! Big shout out & Thankyouuuu to Herment for being there when i was poorly on the climb and helping us as a team to get to summit which we all did! Also a big mention to Just Love, Minja, Armani, etc for everything they did to help & make our climb as great as it was without all of them succeeding Kilimanjaro wouldn’t of been possible! Thanks again & look forward to booking again with you guys in the future!
There’s no better way to climb Kilimanjaro than with Amani Minja and his team from ClimbKili. I’m sure plenty of other guides will be able to take you on good routes, keep you safe, and get you to the summit. But Amani did all that while also motivating us at every roadblock, staying up late with us answering questions or just drinking tea and talking, and kept our spirits up with his jokes. He was the perfect mountain guide and an even better mountain coach.
We did the 7 day Machame route with Climb Kili with an additional 2 day safari added to the end. From the start to finish every single part of the trip was so well organized and well explained. It’s a big undertaking to schedule these things from halfway across the globe so when the welcome packet arrived with a booklet laying out every aspect of our trip (and a knit hat!) it did everything to put our mind at ease. At each step we were briefed on what was going to happen and were able to ask every question we could think of. That started from our first day in the hotel and continued each morning and night on the mountain. Our team was well prepared and most importantly we never felt unsafe since they knew the routes, had the right gear, and had so thoroughly briefed us on day by day. And the rewards were breathtaking; seven days above the clouds camping and talking, the success of summiting, and really feeling like you achieved something amazing made each day of climbing worth it.
And what can I say about the food. Each day we had enough food for a team triple our size, with frequent hot tea and coffee breaks. I can’t explain how good the fresh vegetable soup was, especially after a long day of hiking. Our chef Halifa was amazing and he even made us a celebratory cake once we made it to the top. And everyday we were amazed by the hard work the porters put into making the camp comfortable, keeping it well stocked, and dealing with our equipment. I also rented a sleeping bag from ClimbKili; the process was easy (just paid in cash at the office in Arusha) and the bag was clean, warm, and comfortable. Other people in our group rented other equipment and no complaints from them.
The team took care of everything from transfers to and from the airport (they were waiting on arrival), lodging (the ClimbKili offices were located on the first floor of the hotel which was very convenient), luggage storage while we were on the mountain, permits and government stuff for the climb, safety (Our guides carried reserve oxygen and gave twice daily medical checks to us on the mountain), transport for the safari with a guide who knew exactly where to find whatever animals we asked for, and a million more things I’m forgetting. When I say that the welcome package they mailed out once we confirmed our dates covered everything I really mean that it did (From tipping practices in Tanzania to a full work out plan to prepare you for the climb).
The two day Safari at the end was a nice cap to the whole thing; with an excellent stay at an amazing hotel on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. We might have seen 4,000 animals over the 2 days (seriously, the density of life there amazed us) and the same ClimbKili service applied there; we had briefings to tell us exactly what was happening, everyone was night, and everything happened on time.
Overall the best thing I can say about ClimbKili is that they were deliberate. It is just so nice to be able to fly into a country and do a fairly strenuous activity and just have each and every day unfold precisely as it was laid out on the schedule they provided to you months before. With their punctuality, professionalism, and openness we never felt surprised or uncomfortable in any of the ways that you kind of expect when you travel to a new culture. That allowed us to really focus on the beauty of Tanzania, on enjoying our trip up Kilimanjaro, and on taking in the people around us. I’d recommend any of ClimbKili’s packages to anyone. And if you’re on the fence about climbing Kilimanjaro, seriously, just do it.
If you ever think of embarking yourself in the adventure of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro make sure you do it with these guys! Climb Kili did everything right from day one of initial contacts and prep to getting us back from the top of Africa. The best guide in Tanzania? Mr. Goodluck, hands down! He and his crew are not only experts and professionals who pay attention to every single little detail, but they are also fun, outgoing and amazing human beings. From porters, to Mr. Stomach engineer, lead singer Junior, our assistant Michael, guides Francis and Manasse all great guys under the thorough leadership of Goodluck.
Make sure you are in good shape and get well prepared, this is not a walk in the park. However, if you are in decent shape, follow Climb Kili’s instructions during prep and get Goodluck on your side you will make it to Uhuru peak and in the process you will make great new friends
